Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

GE Spectra Profile - dual burner only has one temperature - HIGH!

I have a GE spectra profile range with a dual burner in the right front corner. This burner seems to have only one temperature: HIGH. No matter where I turn the dial, small or large, high or low, the element comes on bright red. Is the problem in the switch on top, or in the element? Do I need to take off the top to fix it?

    The larger dual burner will only work on low. The larger beurner will not work. Is it the small/larger burner switch? Is it replacable by a homeowner?

If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
