Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

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.

Oven lights but won't heat up

The coil on the oven may need to be replaced. Unplug the oven and remove the coil. You should be able to find a replacement at a hardware store, online, or at a major appliance outlet such as Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

Tappan Oven 316246653. Preheating the Oven does not work. Bottom Heating Coil (if thats what its called) is not working. The Broiler Coil at the Top does work. Is it the bottom coil that needs replaced...

Usually when the element fails to heat up, It means its usually broke, cracked, or where they plug in gets brittle and breaks. Your best bet is to replace the bottom element.

When oven is set for heating. it does not heat up

You will need a multimeter to check for th resistance of the coils.remove power plug.
Check from the power plug to the main switch .When the switch is turned on the line must come till the coil.
Now disconnect and test the coils , if open resistance the coils are burnt and must be replaced with the same type /wattage.
However if coil is good then it can be the thermostat cut off(UNIT), the switch or the wires.
