Question about GE 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White

1 Answer

Bottom baking element remains on

After turned off, the lower baking element remains hot, with a very small area of the element glowing red (which might just be some debris). Had to open the breaker to shut it down.

Thanks

From a consumer repair stand-point; I would inspect, test for continuity and or replace your oven bake heating element.

How to Replace an Oven Bake Heat Element: While ensuring power off when servicing; Remove (2) mounting screws and slowly back-out the element about 3" or so. Then, disconnect and remove wires located on each side of heat element; re-install new element.

Should problems still exist, contact me.

Jenn-air elecrtic oven JDS9860AAP is slow to heat up and will not come up to temp.


Either you have an open element a burnt terminal lead or a bad control try setting on broil only the element should glow in bake the bottom element should glow while the top cycles on/off based on your description of a humming noise I would suspect the relay on the control board

Preheats very slowly. Also, steam cleaning option seems to not be effective due to low heat. Is there more than one lower oven heating element?


For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS??
THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me

Oven not heating up light ok fan ok


hi Lorraine. Thanks for choosing fixya! Usually, when an oven won't bake, 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.

Heat in lower oven will not exceed 185 degrees


Several possibilities:

1. Bake/broil elements are bad - can you see them glow red?

2. Temperature sensor is out of wack - does the temperature displayed agree with the actual oven temperature? The sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance.

3. If the elements and sensors check out and the oven "thinks" it is hot when it's not, then it is probably your control board. In this case we may be able to help you, we repair these at www.fixyourboard.com.

BAKE IS NOT WORKING


It sounds like you have a bad bake element. If the bottom element isn't glowing it may be bad or have a wire burnt off at the terminal end. You would heva to remove the element and have ytour local appliance parts store test it for you.

Range will not hold a consistent temperature


Good chance your bake element is out. Could be the element or a terminal burned off.
When you set to bake, normally it preheats which uses the bake and broil element.
When it reaches "near" temp, the broil goes off and the bake takes over.
If the bake element, (the one in the bottom), is not working, the temp will decline.

Check:
Turn to 450 deg.
Watch the elements, assuming you have a door with a glass, and see if both elements, top and bottom, glow red.

Oven was not working. Range and bottom warmer is working, but the oven isn't working.

Model MER57550AW won't heat beyon 200 degrees to prest 400


can you see lower (bake) element or is it hidden(under the oven floor). a visual inspection of elemnet is usually all that is required to determine if its good or not, It will have a "burn out" in it perhaps a plume of white soot around damaged area.in which case you will need to replace the element. simple enough 2screws and 2 wires part number 74010750.. if it is a "hidden" bake elemnt the floor oh oven lifts rightup to reveal it."POWER MUST BE TURNED OFF!!!!!!!! IT IS A CONSTSANTLY LIVE ELEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean by, "properly"?
Is it heating or not at all?
Is it not hot enough, or too hot?
Upper element is for broil. It may come on briefly during bake, but usually at half power. It doesn't glow red.
Does the bottom element glow red? If not, inspect lower element, which is the bake element, for pits and rough spots. These may be signs of failure.
UNPLUG STOVE!! Remove bake element and check for continuity. If it shows open, replace. You can probably take to parts store and they can test it for you.
