Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

Oven heat coil

There are two heat coils in the oven. The larger of the two will not heat. Where do I find a replacement ? Can it be replaced ? Is there a GE parts store in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois ? Not sure it is actually referred to as a coil ?

Check with Sears in their parts store to see if they have your model illustrated. If they do, you may be able to order it through them.
If they do not, there are several appliance parts stores on line which do and one of them will have your part. Otherwise you can search on the net and I would use: GE "JBP78" "oven element" as search terms.

Gemini Electric Range MER6772BAS- lower oven upper heating coil doesn't work. Everything else works fine.


Replace upper coil by removing,and take it to applance parts dept and have them order a new coil(check coil by using a test meter look for low ohms.

My ge range has quit working. First the stove top (coils) failed to heat up (all at once); then about a week later the broiler coil failed to heat up shortly followed by the entire oven. The 'on' light...


The stove top is internally wired separately from the oven. Check that you don't have a faulty circuit breaker in your breaker panel. The oven is 240V which has two breakers ganged together. If only one side trips you can loose power to the heating elements but still have power to the control board (to light up ON).

I have a Jenn-Air Model # JER8885QCS range which is 3 years old. The bottom oven coil is not heating up. When I replaced the coil, I noted the old one was burned in one spot & melted apart. However,...


First off, check to see if it is still under warranty. You will need the Model #, and Serial # before you talk to the factory. The unit is either single phase (2 separate 120v circuits) or 3 phase, (3 separate 120v circuits) To check voltage properly you CANNOT check voltage to ground. You have to check wire to wire. you will get a reading of 208, or 240 volt. On a 3 phase, you need to check all 3 wires to each other, and MUST come up with either 208, or 240v between ALL wires.

I have a Frigidaire range Model # FEF351CWB. When you turn the oven on for Bake the top and bottom coils do not heat but when you turn on Broil only the top coil heats and the bottom doesn't.


This means that the bottom heating element is burned out and need replacing, yes you are correct the top will come on when the knob is in the broiler position.

Oven quit working


Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

Frigidaire range


narrow it down to either the broil coil (upper) or the bake coil (lower). then find the control knob which sets each function and then replace that complete knob assembly.
