Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

The bottom coil doesn't heat up. It stays luke warm and the top coil is usually 100 hotter. Is it the coil that needs to be replaced or is it some sort of timer that is bad- how do I tell?

Very simple problem. The coil or heating element or unit bake need to replace.
Here is a link you see the parts diagram of your oven abut you can also order the element also.
However in your model JBP78 there are some more letters after 78. You find them and make a new search at the same page in order to be perfect match of the part.

My peugeot 308 2012 heaters are not warmin up properly.Its fine when the car is stationary but when its driven the oil temp gauge cools right down to zero?? and heaters are luke warm at best.


In order to answer this more specifically we would need the type of car and its year. However most heaters have a heating coil that is activated by the cars coolant. the warm water flows through those coils and dissipates its heat to the interior portion of the car. So, I would look into checking your coolant and your cars heating coil. Although heating coils are usually very hard to access. I may be incorrect in this, I am basing this answer off of my 1994 miata and my 1998 toyota 4runner.

1976 chevy k10 350cdi base model no ac.will not warm up upper radiator hose gets hot heater lines both get hot but lower hose stays cold. changed thermostat filled till full ran air out of system no c


It sounds like you have a blockage in the system and by the description it sounds as if it is the heater core. The best advise I have is to pull the heater hoses off of the heater core and blow backwards into the core. Next would be to make sure the hoses both heat up, the top and the bottom.

No heat in dodge nitro


If the cooling system is full of liquid, the thermostat may not be closing when the engine is cold.

98 grand cherokee little heat.heater hoses hot top rad warm bottom is cold collant barely luke warm


While it doesn't seem likely, if you've changed, or had the thermostat changed.... I'd say you got a faulty thermostat. I am curious as to what your temperature gauge says the temperature of the engine and coolant is.. If your gauge is showing hot, I can think of two more possibilities... the water pump isn't pumping right... and, if the water pump isn't working right, the problem can be a cracked head or block, which can cause an airlock in the coolant system. Check the coolant or radiator cap.

Dryer does not get real hot just luke warm


Sounds like one of the heating coils has broken. Replacement usually requires complete dismantlement of the unit to get at the back of the barrel.

Heater is blowing luke warm air. does not get any hotter


Quite a few idea's come to mind.
1) Thermostat is stuck open, causing the engine to run cool.
2) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the air "flap" is stuck open, allowing cool air in all the time.
3) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the line that feeds the heater core isn't opening all the way.

Cold air out of register for about 3 min. until starting to warm


heat pumps generate heat from compressing freon and take a while to generate enough heat to be useful. never expect robust heat from a pump like an oil burner or a gas furnace, but they do heat great and are cheaper to operate. do this . if you are still using an old mercury bulb stat change it to a digital one. this will hold an exact temperature and time off between cycles will be less and the indoor coil will stay warm between short cycles, with an old mercurry stat you set it at 70 and it may run up to 73 and stay off till 68. thats a long off cycle and when call resumes the coil has gotten cold and has to start all over again. also dont wait till it gets cold to run a heat pump. turning it on and off as it gets cold is not correct. you should select a temp ,usually 71 for heat and set it and leave it on to do its thing.you may want to check the charge. hot gas discharge is usually 100 degreees hotter than outdoor temps after 15 minutes run time. for example if its 40 outside the big freon line outside thats insulated should be about 140 degrees. or you can run it 15 minutes and grab it with your hand . it should be almost uncomfortable to hold any length of time. careful some get quite hot. you also have the option of hooking up the electric strip to automatically come on if you push the stat up 2 degrees hotter than the temp in the room. that way you get heat pump and strips till temp gets within 2 degrees of set point and the strips shut off and pump maintains.good luck
