Question about GE JKP20 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

'79 GE oven lower bake coil not heating after replaced w/switch.

The problem started last week with the arcing of the lower baking coil of our July 1979 combination (micro & oven model J - KP97G serial MF980755M)GE oven... I replaced the same lower coil that I previously successfully replaced in 2001. Except this time, only the upper coil functions in the Bake mode although the oven Clean mode works great. I just replaced the oven switch WB22X5123 as recommended in lieu that there was no connection being made between the 2 'Bake' terminals and no visible wire connection problem was visible. I tested the new coil to the normal 17.8 ohms although the power across the lower coil terminals was only about 40 volts...The thermastat unit contacts looked ok and I cleaned the copper contacts. (just a note that we have not had a continuous red light on the bake light for some time and we have adjusted the oven temp dial to 50 degrees warmer than desired with success for years...) We would like to continue using our current oven for at least 5 years when we may replace some of our kitchen appliances. Please help. Thank You.

How do I replace the bottom element of my GE oven?


Hundreds of GE ovens, so can't give procedure, but problem is not necessarily the element - could be switch, connection to element, etc. Google GE (model #) lower element not heating.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, 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.

Is it easy to replace the lower element on a jtp 15 GE oven? While the wife was baking last week, the lowere element burned out. Was wondering if I could replace it myself


Easy replacement. Make sure to unplug power or shut off breaker. remove 1/4" hex screw on back of element. Pull off female terminals or some have screws. Install new element the same way.

GE J BP27G R1AD Oven Not Heating Fully


Hi Jeff. You should have a wiring diagram with the range. Check for an envelope on the back of the range, inside the back splash, or taped to the inside side wall of the range if you remove the lower drawer. That all being said, first check to see if the start or stop time knobs on the timer have been pushed in (and possibly turned). If the clock runs, it will clear this out within 12 hours, but on these old ranges often times the clock no longer runs. Make sure these knobs are turned until they have "popped" out or you won't get the necessary voltage where you need it. Secondly, when a bake element burns out, it can cause damage to the electrical contacts in the oven selector switch (part number WB22X5122 ) which can be tested with an ohm meter if you can find the electrical diagram. Also, the oven thermostat (part number WB21X5320 ) can be damaged in the same way. Unfortunately, these parts for these old units are not very cheap.
The little bit of heat you are getting in your oven now is most likely only from the 120 volts going to the broiler element when in Bake. During Bake, your bake element should get 240 volts (until thermostat is satisfied). Setting to Broil should give 240 to the broil element.

Oven does not Bake, Heat Up


Replace the oven glow bar igniter. If you post an exact model number (located on sticker behind lower drawer) I can give you a part number.
