Question about GE JBP65 Electric Kitchen Range
My daughter is away at college and dropped a hot plate on her cooktop, breaking the cooktop. I'm hoping to replace the cooktop for her in a couple of weeks when we next visit, but I need to make sure I can handle the job (which is complicated by the fact that I can't look at the job ahead of time).
First question: She swears the model number is JBP65SOK4SS, but GE doesn't seem to have that model number. The closest I can find on GE's site is JBP65SK4SS. Does anyone know if these models share the same cooktop?
Second question: Assuming the correct part number is WB62T10282, how hard is it to replace the cooktop? I've read http://www.fixya.com/support/r391448-replacing_glass_cook_top, but I'd be curious if anyone has more specific information for this model.
Third question: Are there any repair manuals for these ovens? The users manuals aren't very much help.
Thanks (from me and my daughter)!
If you can verify the model number (hers didn't, yours did check out) this might be the place to go:
Sears Parts Direct
Sears carries a huge line of parts for many manufacturers which are sometimes available from a storefront in your area or on line.
On your model number, there is unfortunately no complete parts illustration (line drawing) which they often have available and with a bit of thought, those give you enough insight to the construction to see what has to be done for a repair.
With the part number, I recommend you call Johnstone Supply if you have one in your area. They often have OEM parts at 1/2 to 2/3 anyone elses price. Typical savings; a washing machine pump that the dealer wanted ~$22 for, I bought from Johnstone for almost exactly half; ~$11. They are 'wholesale' but I have never been turned away.
For our appliances that have been available, I have copied (yeah, well, OK, stolen) them and have them on hand locally.
