Question about GE JBP80 Electric Kitchen Range
The element melted on our JPB80W0F2WW electric range. Element in oven turned white hot and melted and was on fire. Turning off power did not kill the fire so we killed the breaker. That stopped the fire. Why did the fire not go out when we turned off the oven if it was just a bad element? What cause the element to overheat?
You need to replace the element. Very easy to do. Cut power off at the breaker or unplug the stove FIRST (please!). Remove the two 1/4" screws securing the element to the oven cavity then two wires to the element just unplug. The wires can go either way. Call 1-800-626-2002 or go to the GE Appliance web site for the part. It is a WB44T10011 for the lower (bake) element and WB44T10009 for the top (broil) element.
