Glass top (Radiant) Range surface unit replacement

Discussion in 'Home Repair' started by Usenet Poster, Jan 31, 2005.

  1. One of the surface units in my 4.5 year old GE radiant range failed.
    Is it easy to repace by myself, or it is better to call a prefessonal?

    I never worked on any of my ranges before. But I did work on electricity
    before - add circuits, install lights , etc.

    Thanks for the tips, or any references.

    with it; the 'appliance repair aid' guy will hook ya up.

  4. Jeff and Matt,

    Thanks.

    I'll check the model number tonight when get home.

    One of the elements was dead completely. The indicator will
    come on when it is turned on. But the surface will remain
    cold. This is the front element (large one) that was used
    most often.

    3 other surfaces elements, including the dual coil one, are
    fine.

  5. Jeff,

    OK. The model No. is JSP40BOWBB GE Profile

    The problem is with the large front element. It stays cold after turn it
    on, even though the indicator LED is on.

    So is replacing a surface element for the glass top DIY'able? If so,
    where can I find the parts?

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    > OK. The model No. is JSP40BOWBB GE Profile


    Closest that would come up online...
    JSP40BW1BB JSP40BW2BB JSP40BW3BB JSP40BW4BB Slide in style.

    > The problem is with the large front element.

    Large haliant surface burner with sensor, 2000W

    Appears the perimeter around the glass top has screws to lift the glass
    top to access the elements below....
    http://tinyurl.com/55u85

    Once the top is lifted, prop it up and the elements has bars that go
    across the top holding the elements to the glass top panal.

    Hope something here helps,
    jeff.

  7. Thanks Jeff.

    How can I tell if that 2000W can really be a replacement of the
    bad burner? What the consequence would be if it is not exact
    match to the existing one? How do I tell the wattage of the bad
    element?

  8. BTW, The your link of diagram for the GE range looks exactly like mine,
    as far as the layout is concerned.

    Hi,

    Double check the model#, but each one I looked up came up the same
    replacement element for the large non-dual element. The wattage rating
    is also/should be writtin on the bottom of the element.

    > What the consequence would be if it is not exact

    Might not line up with the markings on the top.
