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.

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.

Wife put the oven on clean cycle last night. This morning the heating element will not turn off, a one inch section glows orange. Turned oven off, put it back on clean, broil and off again, no change.


You probably just need a new bake element. Many ranges supply 120 volts to one side of the bake element at all times, switching the other side of the 240 voltage to it (and completing a circuit) when it needs to heat. If the element shorts to ground, the 120 volts can heat though a section of the element to the ground. OK, so much for the technical stuff. Turn power off to range. Replace bake element. Re-connect power. If it works, great. If it heat without turning oven "on" now, that would indicate that the electrical contacts in the bake relay on the control board have welded themselves together, necessitating replacing the control board. Let's hope you are not unlucky enough to have had that happen. (sometimes that happens as the result of an element failure)

Re: GE Spectra Oven will not heat beyond approx. 200 degrees.


May be a bad thermostat... the elements usually either work or they dont but you can look it over to see if there are any burns or breaks starting to form or do a current test.
When you have figured out what part check out www.appliancepartssolutions.com they have cheep parts.good luck!

Does GE Spectra JBP68 have a fuse? Only 1/2 of range is working.


Your GE Spectra does NOT have a fuse, but it has a electronic control board, as well as elements. If both your elements heat up at all, then they are good. If you will contact us at:
http://www.fixya.com/repair/d499389-accurate_appliance_repair_service we can discus the issues with your range and I will attempt to get you back up and running again soon.

You may contact us from 7 AM until 9 PM CST Monday through Saturday for appliance assistance and parts.

We look forward to working with you.

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....

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.
