SOURCE: GE Oven bake element not work

It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.

I honestly believe you are right. you should be able to wiggle it back and forth and pull it out.

The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

Yes you can - yes it is worth it. First unplug or turn the breaker off to your unit. The bottom bake element is held in by 2 screws at the back of the oven. remove both of them and gently pull out the element a little. there are 2 wires attached to the element either by 2 more screws or push in connectors.

A lot of the time you can see where the element is burned out but sometimes you may have to check it for continuity with an ohm meter to tell if it is bad.

SOURCE: GE Oven JTP15BW Broil Element on, Bake Element off during baking.

I have the same problem. Just swap the 2 wires that are marked as 'broil' and 'bake' on the controller board. But sometimes it switches back, then I have to swap the wires again.

You might want to leave the 'broil' post unconnected to prevent burning food..
