    Hi sorry i am not to ofae with these models! But the best place to start is the incomming mains. Then find where the mains electric is distributed into the appliance (I.E. the clock or main control board) Then live test the board with the correct equipment and you should be able to locate where the power source is being disrubted.

    Good luck...

Oven made pop noise now won t heat


It sounds like the control board blew out. I have had a couple of these just blow like that lately. The bake and broil wont work. . Check for any bad wiring but the control board is most likely the culprit.

Hello Bill Robbins - From what you are describing it sounds like a wiring failure or a communication break failure between the power board and UIB has occurred. Error code F5, typically indicates that the EOC will need replacing. A certified technician will need to test the wiring harness between the ESC, UIB and EOC.

Oven does not work,


Usually the problem is the heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/ovenelementvideo.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
If the element checks good it probally blew the relay on the main control board you will know this if you have no power to the element.

I was just preheating my GE JT950 oven and there was a loud "pop" sound from the top fan, and then smoke emanated from the oven. The circuit breaker in the home is fine, as no fuses were blown. Any advice


bake element do pop when they burn out and some will act like a sparkler and burn and burn .. I would look for a bad spot in the element of the oven that you wer heating . mm

After a "pop" - the oven no longer works


You should have thrown the breaker before moving the oven. The element likely shorted and blew the breaker. make sure the breaker is off. replace the element and plug it back in and reset the breaker.

Electric Dbl Wall Oven-loud popping noise at end of self clean


Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian
