Re: GE Range JBP69 samller burner of the dual burner...
These burners are not that difficult to get to, but you will have to get access to that burner or element to do testing. Screws hold the top down located just under the top front edge. Open oven door to see screws. Remove screws to lift up top. It will pivot on the back edge. You will see the elements. If you do not feel safe doing this get professional help.

If the burner is scorched or pitted, go ahead and replace it. New burners can cost anywhere from $10 to $40. Otherwise, check the burner's electrical connections to make sure there is solid contact. Jiggle the burner in its socket. If it is loose, then remove the burner—most just pull out of the electrical socket, although some are mounted with a screw. (Always unplug the range before removing a burner.) Slightly spread the two terminals apart for a tighter connection. If it still doesn't work, then replace the faulty burner with a functioning burner of the same size. If that burner works, then replace the bad burner with a new one. If it doesn't, then inspect the electrical socket for damage. If it's charred, replace the socket. To do so, remove the screws that secure the socket to the range and then unscrew the range wires. Attach the wire connections of the new socket to the range wires and reassemble the burner.
yea sounds like an issue for sure, nut not with the element but hte switches instead, theres a short in one or the other( most likely the dual switch) i wouls reccomend replacing both the switches, the elemenst should be fine.
Unplug the Range from the wall completely. Lift up the top to see under the burners and make sure they are contacting the connections for current. If they seem to be tight, plug it back in and try it. If that doesn't work, then you have an "Infinite Switch" malfunction. www.marcone.com is an excellent source for finding a do it yourself part to fix this. Please do not attempt to replace this switch with the range plugged in.
