Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Small burner of dual surface(right front) stopped working.

GE JPB78 range.
The small burner of the dual surface(right front) stopped working. A flooring contractor recently moved the range, disconnected the back, and then replaced it. The contractor used power tools while doing the floor installation, and our wiring is mid-70s(California). I've tried resetting out condominium's breaker switches.

All of the other burners, including the large burner(of the dual surface--right front), work.

Does yours have the (small large burner switch)? If so, try switching it back and forth. It could be defective or your small burner element is bad.

Trying to identify an old GE electric range and find service manu


That is definitely an oldie, but a good one. I always pull each burner, remove the clips off the ceramic insulator, and replace one wire at a time. If you look at each burner control, they should all be the same ie. #1 is the same on each. There are usually only 3 wires on the small burners, and 4 wires on some of the dual coil larger burners. Also, on the back panel, there is supposed to be a wiring diagram glued to it. I may still have some parts for it if you need any.

GE JSP39 range; front right burner eye doesn't work at all


there are two tests to chk which is bad,wether it is the control switch or the elemnt.disconnect the power to stove and open the top and disonnect the wires from elemnt and chks the continuity of the elemnt coil with a multimeter.if the meter does not read continuity then elemnt is bad.to confirm this connect the wires back to the elemnt and plug the unit to power, turn on the switch to high position and read the voltage coming to elemnt.it should be 240 volts.if u read that voltage, then for sure element is bad.if every thing is opposite to this then it is the control switch which is bad.

I have a new ge range. When I turn on the left


mvek,
If you could see through the glass, you'd see "temperature sensors" located near the elements. They're very sensitive little guys, and rightly so! Their job is to detect temps and energize the warning light on the cooktop so users won't get burned.

To answer your question... It appears that there is an issue with the front left sensor (and possibly the right as well). The temp warning lamps should NEVER go off immediately. Please call for warranty repair (1-800-GE-CARES). This is an unsafe condition for you and your Family. The warning indicators are there for a reason and should indicate high temp's as long as high temp's are present.

Burner dosent get as hot as the others


If you saw a spark from the burner chances are that the burner has shorted out and is in need of replacement.

Burner ignitor will not turn off after the burner lights Viking


replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
