Question about Ovens
Bottom manual working fine. Suddenly top will not come on, top OR
bottom burner. Gave no previous indication of a problem. Tried resetting
breaker, with no result. Please help if you can
You probably tripped a safety thermostat in the back of each oven. If you turn off the breaker and find a way to pull the units out you could probably remove the rear panel and reset the thermostat by pushing in a button on the back of the open thermo. Some thermo's aren't resettable though so you'd have to buy a replacement.

Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Cycling the power off and then on again will sometimes reset it...often you will have to call the customer service number to get the steps to take to unlock that...

The specs for this double oven give a rating of 5.1kW at 208V so it needs a 30 Amp circuit breaker. This assumes that the oven is the only appliance on the circuit. So you should be able to use the same circuit breaker.
A bigger consideration is that the opening for the double oven needs to be larger than that of the single oven. If the opening does not have a solid bottom, it must be able to support a heavier load. The runners and braces under a single oven has to support 200 pounds (91 kg). A double oven must have braces and runners designed to hold 375 pounds (171 kg).
Also check if your household uses aluminum wiring. The new oven has copper and problems will occur at the interface if you do not use the appropriate precautions. (Products designed for mating copper and aluminum are available - follow the directions).
I hope this helps.
(btw: you can find the User's Guide and Installation manual for the double oven at GE's website: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=JKP35DPBB . See the section Literature and Manuals on the left hand side of the page below the picture of the oven.)
