GE range - oven stopped working after cleaning

The rastove/oven worked well until last week . I lifted the bottom heating element to clean out the grease at the bottom. After that, only the top heating elements worked (all gas stoves and all oven fans work).

Today, I tried to check for loose connection by taking out the bottom heating element and puttng it back. After that both heating elements sttopped working and the oven heating light does not light up! Convection and broiler fans still work.

What should I do?

    Dear Mark,



    Thanks for the tip. But now how do I get about checking the fuse and tripped breaker? Where are they located?



    Thanks and best regards

If you bent the bottom element out list out of the way, you may have broken the actual heating element inside of the metal sheath. Or, it could have shorted to ground.
After tinkering with it more, you might have caused another short, and now both legs of 220 VAC have either a blown fuse or tripped breaker.

Reply what you find is the sondition, and I will help you troubleshoot more.

    Check the fuse or breaker in your electrical panel for the house, for that circuit. It will be a double breaker, or two fuses that should be side by side.

While cleaning oven I lifted bottom element heard a pop. Now neither the stove or oven will not come on. The indicator lights do not light up either.


The "pop" was the sound of the heating element shorting to ground so naturally nothing works now.

I recently ran the self-clean option on my GE Profile JK955B0F5BB. Now when I set the touch pad to 350 degrees or more, the oven heats up to beyond 500.


That is not a valid model number, the issue is most likely the thermostat has failed. The part is about 12 dollars.

The preheat light flashes on my he range and oven does not heat. I have had the sensor checked and its working. What else could it be?


Most likely the heating element is bad. Disconnect the oven from power. You can open the bottom of your oven to expose the heating element and see if there are any signs of burns or melting. If you can, remove the heating element and use a volt/ohm meter to check "continuity" across the element ... it should be a dead short. While performing this inspection, confirm that the wires and connectors leading to the heating element are intact and connected.

Electric range surface elements not working after self clean cycle.


It sounds like it is broken. You can bypass it by connecting the 2 wires together. This should be fine until you replace it. They aren't that expensive.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


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.

Need to replace heating element


We have a maytag stove and we cleaned our oven on the self clean cycle a week ago. I used the oven once since we cleaned it. today we went to use the oven again, and the oven will not heat and the broiler will not come on either....seems funny that both would quit working at the same time.....any suggestions....
