GE JBP30 oven bottom element not working after being replaced

The oven was taking a long time (up to half an hour) to get up to the set temperature say 350 degrees. After looking at the oven it appeared that the bottom heating was not heating at all. I replaced this element but this new element only sometimes works, mostly not at all.
The oven does eventually get to the preset temp but it appears to only use the broiler element to do it.
The broil function works and the broiler element works.
Would this be an issue with Control unit (WB27X10311) on the top of the oven where the oven turns on?
Thanks for any help.

    I checked the voltage from the control board to the neutral using a voltage meter and there was no voltage when testing it. I used a bake setting on the oven to energize. Does this mean the entire control board needs replaced or just a relay that is on this board?

    This unit looks like an integrated item.



    Thanks,

I would be looking at the bake relay on teh coven control board. Using a voltage meter test the output voltage when energizing the bake feature. Be sure to remove the bake element wire coming from the bake element to the control. Test this terminal without the bake element wire attached. From the terminal with one meter probe to the neutral on the terminal block (where your cord attaches to), you should read 110 volts when energized and 0 voltge when shut off. What are you reading? If I can help further, I am here.....

Waiting to hear from you,

My oven will not bake but the broiler works.


Hello there
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.
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. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Oven taking very long time to hit temperature. set at 400 it takes forever (1/2 hour) then gets stuck at 398


Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)

Grill is not working


Hello,
Is The small amount of heat you are getting coming from the bottom element in the top oven or is half the top Grill element working.To start with you have a double grill element and either the whole element has gone or just half the element.This is controlled by a selector switch which could be at fault or the Thermostat that controls the temperature.

Hope this helps.

The temperature takes a long time to heat up, almost an hour for the hottest.


If it is an electric range, then the main bake element (the bottom one) may have broken.

Mine did this after 4 years. It is simple to replace, an easy way to test this is to crank the temperature up full bore and put your hand near both the top and bottom elements. When your hand is close you should feel a definite heat source. If either is cold then it is most likely that it has broken.

Let me know if you want to change it yourself. Most ovens are pretty straight forward and I can talk you through the process once you've found a replacement element.

Or you could get an appliance serviceperson to come round and have a look.

Hope this helps.

Ge spectra jbp64, replacement bottom bake element


Take the 2 screws out of the back wall of the oven (inside) holding the element on. Then pull the element out and it will expose the wires and terminals (2). Unplug the 2 wires and plug them on the new element and mount the element back in the oven and your fixed. (make sure to turn the power off to the oven before you start unpluging wires.
