GE Stove - Oven doesn't work after replacing stove element

What else can be wrong with a stove after replacing the baking element. I check the stove twice to see if a wire was disconnected, but it wasn't. Everything else comes on. What else could be wrong with the stove?

    Baking element shorted out. Replaced it. But stove still does not work. No Clock! Cannont turn on Oven.

    Could the Baking element short have burned out the Oven controls, and the Clock?/?

SOURCE: Replacing oven burner element, the lower element, for a GE stove

(I think it is 50 watts or volts??)
Most electric ranges are supplied with 220 volts - this is, especially at 60 Hz, deadly. You were lucky this time.
If the wires are not welded onto the element contacts, they might be so-called 'quick-disconnects' that pull straight off of blades that are part of the elelment.  
You probably haven't hurt the range with the momentary short circuit since the chassis of the range is connected to neutral or ground so you just gave your breaker a workout. BTW, I have had to replace late breakers after they tripped. They wouldn't stay reset any more even after the problem was removed from the circuit. Don't be surprised if yours doesn't stay reset; it may not be a fault causing it.

See if this helps. Page 26 shows a digital clock. Even if the buttons and knobs are different on yours the procedure may be the same.

SOURCE: WE have a GE Stove top Range. The burners aren't

If you have power to the stove as in the oven light works and the clock works but the burners and oven will not work you only have 120 volts coming to the stove. The stove requires 240 volts for the burners and oven to work. Check the service panel for a blown fuse. There will be 2 fuses in the fuse holder. One of them is blown. If that is not the case then one of the wires has come loose either in the service panel or in the outlet behind the stove. Use a multimeter to check the input voltage at the outlet.

Owners manual is here: http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/pdf/49-4629.PDF

You can probably find the part by using google -- I am about to buy a switch for a similar range.

Ge oven element not working


Well, to ensure the element is bad, you can take an ohm meter to the contacts of it and measure the resistance. It should be around 20 ohms. If it is much greater or infinite, the element is bad. To get to the contacts you will need to unplug the oven, pull it away from the wall and remove the rear panel. Then disconnect the element wiring and touch the probes from the meter to the contacts on the element. You can order a new element locally or from repairclinic.com. Let me know what you find.

There is heat, but not nearrrrrly what it should be. The other day we noticed the metal coil thingy on the bottom ("bake element"?) do a weird thing, it turned very bright and a small bright spark spread...


That is what I would do. Be sure to remove the power plug before doing any kind of work on the elements or wiring. If the element is a 'plug-in' device, the repair is simple. But if the element connections are buried in the oven back, it requires more careful work. Hope this helps!

When on "bake" the top element won't go on. However when on "broil" the element (top) works! So it's obviously not the element - any ideas?


I do not think yoy have a problem as most ovens operate off of the bottom element only. The top element is for broiling only.

Stove oven wont work..


Yes, you can use the Eaton Viking element in place of the Gibson element as long as all mountings are the same.
You should use ceramic washers between the element and the casing to prevent it from grounding out...which is what probably happened to the element in the first place.
Be sure to look for chapped or burnt wiring BEFORE replacing the element. Also look for burnt connectors.
Hope this help you! :)
