Ge Spectra Electric Range Cooktop

On the front right burner, when the element is turned on, under the glass cooktop you can see a orange spark about 0.5" away from the central round element.  It looks like a spark from a wire that is not completely attached to the element.  Is this possible or is this a normal event, although I do not see the same thing on the other 3 burners.

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.

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.

My outside right front burner is also out.

unplug power first and foremost. if this is a glass cooktop you have to get the top of the unit up. be careful to support it well. does the burner work at all? maybe the switch and not the element if you can't control the temperature on it.

Does anyone know how difficult it is to change out a GE Profile Spectra cooktop? Also, where can I get instructions to do so? Thanks!

The following link explains how to replace a glass cooktop:

This is not a difficult repair, but it can be tedious. If you have the quick disconnect plug that all the surface elements plug into, it makes it much easier as you can unplug the cooktop and move the entire assembly to another area to work on. Otherwise, you will have to prop the top up and carefully remove all the elements, leaving them wired together.

NOTE: Make sure the range is UNPLUGGED prior to servicing. Dangerous voltage is still present even with the range turned off.

If you have questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Help in Removing Frigidaire Smooth Cooktop Burner

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.
