Question about Ovens
Every time i hit bake and the temp it starts at 100 and then in 30 seconds shuts off. this has been an ongoing problem but has gotten worse and now it wont stay on at all .
Either the thermometer is sending the wrong signal to the logic board on the front panel or the thermostat that regulates is the problem.

sounds like the TOD may be at fault. can you supply me with the model # on your stove please?
as far as the popping sound, that would the spark module.

I believe there are two reasons for this model to shut off during bake and reheat. One is the lock as mentioned and the other is the master control board. The control board was faulty in my situation and was replaced (under warranty thank goodness). But even with a new control board - the problem occurred. The tech from GE explained there is a faulty design with the actual connection between the control board and the oven itself so he had to hard wire the control board instead of using the plug in connectors. Just a note that the communication from the lock goes through the control board so what may seem a lock issue could still be the control board. The lock and swtich are mechanical - they just send a signal to the board itself. If the board is faulty, a new lock won't do much to solve the problem. Thanks for the feedback from others.

we had a repairman come and he opened the electronic control panel and hit the "reset" on it and it worked after that. hope this helps. these ovens stink.

When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.
If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

There is an element that circles the rear fan, this is the common element and the most powerful.
Once you have the lid off, it's quick to test continuity on all elements.
Hope this helps
