Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a GE electric range, model # JBP30AA2. On two occations, when the oven controls were set to bake, the broiler element came on. The first time it got so hot that it started my daughters muffins on fire. The display panel gave us an F2 code. The second time this happened, the broiler element got red hot again but would not go off until I turned the breaker off to the oven. After it cooled down, I turned the breaker back on and the broiler has stayed off. What could be my problem and what part do I need to repair it?

Would need the model number to be absolutely sure but it sounds like you need a new ERC (control board) and possibly a new key panel

No heat when set to broil but the bake turns on the broil element. nothing turns on the bake element. are the wires hooked back correctly?


see the next steps and proceed according with commong sense: God bless you
Usually, when an oven won't broil, it's because the broiler element is burned out. The broiler element in an electric oven is the black, pencil-thick tube at the top of the oven. When the broiler is on, 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. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of thi

Frigidaire Electric Range Model FEF355ESB


Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..

Broiler coil is on when bake is turned on...is this normal?


On some kitchen ranges, the broiler comes on during the preheat cycle to speed up the process of warming up the oven and reduce the wait time. This is intended as an energy saving feature as well by reducing the amount gas used on a gas range and the amount of electricity with an electric range.

If the broiler comes on and STAYS on while you are baking, this is NOT normal and is probably an indicaiton that you have a problem with the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is your timer/clock assembly on the operator console. The EOC controls all the oven features.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. Please post your MODEL NUMBER when submitting questions, so I can determine how your range is configured. I hope this helps you.

Broiler works fine, baking in oven does not. never heats up in bake mode


Is this a GAS range? Or an ELECTRIC range?

If this is a GAS range and the broiler is working, more than likely you have a worn igniter on the bake manifold that needs to be replaced. A glowing igniter does not necessarily mean it is good. The following link explains a little theory on how these igniters work and how to replace them:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range

If this is an ELECTRIC range, more than likely the lower heating element for the oven (Bake) is defective and needs to be replaced. The following link epxlains how to replace a heating element on an electric range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575810-replacing_the_bake_or_broil_element_in_a

Since all the oven features on either a gas or electric range are controlled by the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board, and the broiler IS working, it may be safe to assume this is not a control board problem.


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying the parts you need. NOTE: The ERC is also known as the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board on some models.


If you have questions about this repair, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to provide you with a more difinitive solution. I hope this helps you.

My broiler and range work but my "bake" option will not produce any heat??? Please help!!!


If this is an electric range, it sounds like you have a bad bake element in the oven. The broiler and bake features each have their own heating element. Thats why the broiler still works. The following link explains how to replace a heating element in an electric range:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

If the model range you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement element is WB44K5012. It lists for about $25 at pcappliancerepair.com.

If you have questions, or if the model number is not correct, please post back with your information so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance.. I hope you find this information helpful.

GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced


I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,

Re: GE Electric Range JBP67BD1WH Baking Element Problem


Before you replace the range, I'd try replacing the oven temp sensor (part number WB21T10007 ) which is rather inexpensive. If I were able to get my hands on your range I'd first test to see if the control is sending 240 volts to the bake element. We know there is 240 to the range because the burners and broiler work, but is the control sending the full 240 to the bake element ? The only way for you to know this is to use a meter and test the voltage across the terminals of the bake element when in bake. Of course you should also test the bake element with power off and at least one terminal disconnected to see if you have about 20 ohms resistance across the terminals and no resistance from a terminal to the frame of the range. If not, you may need a new bake element (part number
WB44T10010 )
Let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks for using fixya.
If this helps, a fixya rating would be appreciated. Thanks.

Oven not working


Sounds like the oven control which is the clock is bad. The relay for the bake element has probably gone bad and will need to replace the control. You should check continuity on the bake element. If it shows resistance then it is ok. Also, on some models the overlay for the oven control is a separate part. If it is you will need to buy it also.
