Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a range GE spectra. I replaced both bake elements, the bottom is working and the top is not. I opened the back panel and saw that top element has 2 wires going to a panel on top (purple and red). The bottom has 2 wires (yellow and red) going to the same panel on top, looks like switches. In order to test the wires, I switched the purple and yellow wires at the top panel. The bottom stopped working and the top started working. Wires and elements are good then. I dont know what is the part at the top panel to replace. Can anybody help?

SOURCE: oven bake element

If you're talking about the wires attached to the BAKE element, normally RED is on the RIGHT and YELLOW is on the LEFT, but it really doesn't matter. Theoretically, this is a resistive heating coil and it will work with the wires connected in either direction. Normally, its fairly easy to determine how these wires reconnect, because the lengths are normally only sufficient enough to connect them one way.

The RED wire connects from the BAKE element to the terminal block, to one side of the BROIL element. The YELLOW wire is connected to one end of the BAKE element and runs to the electronic oven control (EOC) board.

I hope this clarifies this for you.

Control unit is probably the problem, You should check your Breaker to make sure it didnt trip outside of that you can check voltage to the element with the oven set to bake, if you dont have votage to element then it would most likely be the board. I just checked the wiring diagram for this unit and there is an over limit switch which is a long shot but worth checking. My bet is on the board. There are 2 listings for the part number so if you check on parts make sure you have full model # serial # AND series #(should be a 2 digit number like 10 or something)

SOURCE: ge spectra jbp64, replacement bottom bake element

Take the 2 screws out of the back wall of the oven (inside) holding the element on. Then pull the element out and it will expose the wires and terminals (2). Unplug the 2 wires and plug them on the new element and mount the element back in the oven and your fixed. (make sure to turn the power off to the oven before you start unpluging wires.

GE Electric Spectra Oven botton element will not heat


If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

Ge stove bottom element not working (top working)


The bottom element has probably "blown" out. See if there is a small spot that looks like it exploded. It is similar to an extension cord getting warm and melting in a spot. The only answer is to obtain a new element.

Cooking element


You do not list a full model number. Typically a JBP78_____ uses a WB44X10013 bake element. Disconnect power to range. Take out two 1/4 inch hex head screws holding element in at back of oven. Pull element out a few inches into oven. Disconnect wires. Reverse to install. Not too hard if it is an exposed element. A bit more involved on ranges with "hidden" bake elements (which are under the floor of the oven).

Oven doesn't work but broiler does


I think there is a problem with my top element, it doesn't cycle on when baking. The bottom element works fine. Also, the broiler works. What's the problem?
