Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

GE JP670 The large burner element on my GE JP670 electric cooktop would come on and off intermittently. Sometimes it would not come on at all. Other times after it came on and was heating the food it would go off. I replaced the burner element, but it still does the same thing. If the problem is the infinite switch. Where is it located in the cooktop and how do I replace it?

What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.

SOURCE: cooktop burner doesn't switch between small and large

The burners are controlled by switches, that are the one you turn when you turn the knob. Iwf the burner does not switch to high mode than you need to change the switch.
The switch for your appliance has part number:
WB21X5243
You can by the part from manufacturer clicking here.

Here is an exploded view of your kitchen panel.

The switch is indicated with number 3 in the picture, There should be at least ttwo of them, depending on the model. That is what you need to replace.
Its price is $40.50 from GE.

SOURCE: INTERMITTENT BURNER ELEMENT

Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya

SOURCE: Burner Heating element doesn't heat

Check power to element with a voltmeter. If there is power, the element is bad. If not power, than switch or relay is likely faulty. You can also test them with an ohmmeter

I want to lift the cook top on GE range jbp82shss so that I can clean out all the dust. can I do this


Yes. Disconnect power to range. Open oven door and remove hex head screws at front edge of cooktop from the bottom side. Lift up front of cooktop. Burner units can then be removed from the underside of the cooktop. Be careful not to damage the gray insulating material around the burner elements if you remove the elements from the cooktop glass.

Burner seems to be wired backwards


You have to access the underside of the cook top. Does the back right work correctly? If so switch the wires on the back left to match the right burner.

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.

I'd say its not a normal event, and that the element is about to burn out. I just replaced mine and on the old element there was a nice burn mark where once the element was solid.
