Question about GE JBP90 Electric Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Bake Element My bake element recently burned up. I have a replacement part but I'm concerned where the black ground wiring should be placed. Since this is a self cleaning oven I assume to protect the wire it has a specific place to be placed. Hopefully, you can assist me with a wiring diagram or description.

Please be careful - Be sure to remove all power from the unit.
The Black wires that go to the elements are not grounded, they have 115VAC on them so use great care.

This is what my JBP90 looks like viewed from the rear:

Top Element (Broil) has 2 wires - 1 BLACK on left, 1 RED on right
Center Element(Convection) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 BLUE on right
Bottom Element (Bake) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 Yellow on right

Good Luck!

There should only be two wires that go to the element. It won't matter which wire goes on which terminal. Turn power off to unit before replacing the element. In some cases when the element burns out and breaks in have it will send a surge back to the oven control board and it will need to be replaced also. You will know once the element is replaced if it doesn't heat up.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced


Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

How to replace burnted out bakeing element in kenmore electric range


First unplug your range (or turn power off at your circuit-breaker box). Usually there are 2 screws that hold the bake element in place - remove them. Now carefully, pull the bake element out; you may need to lift the front end of the element to help it come out. You want to pull it out far enough to be able to grab and disconnect the wires to the element. Sometimes, the wires aren't long enough to pull the element out far enough. Sometimes, the wires pull loose from the element. In either case, you would then have to pull your range out from the wall, and remove the back so you can get to the wires. Then put the new element in place and re-attach the wires. Replace the back (if you had to remove it), and replace the screws that hold the element in place. Plug the range back in (or turn on power at the circuit breaker box), and you're ready to bake!

How do I check heating elements?


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

How do I replace my oven element


Hello.


Theoven is a particularly sturdy piece of kitchen equipment. It can handle dailyuse and still perform as needed. But of course, as with everything over time,the oven can eventually have some things go wrong with it. The first signs maybe subtle, like your cake not being cooked through, or you may notice the oventaking much longer than usual to come to temperature. When looking inside theoven as it is heating, you may notice tiny sparks along the bake element. Anyof these symptoms may mean it's time to replace the bake element.Instructionsand tools below Screwdriver, Newbake element, Electrical tape, Fiberglass tape, Flashlight1 The first step when it comes to working on yourelectric oven is to turn the breaker off at your home's service panel, orbreaker box. This is extremely important, because most electric ovens require220-volt electricity to operate, and that voltage won't only hit you hard, itcan kill you. Place a sign on your breaker panel stating that you are workingon the electrical. As an added precaution, unplug the oven from the walloutlet. Remove the drawer below the oven chamber to see if the plug isaccessible from there. Otherwise, you may have to pull out the oven a bit tounplug it.2 Be sure that the oven has not been used in a whileand that the elements are completely cool. Remove all of the racks from insidethe oven. If it makes it more comfortable, you can even remove the oven door byopening it and sliding it off of the "arms" that hold it in place.3 Locate the bake element. It resembles a metal tubethat's been bent into a square shape and it is located on the bottom of theoven's interior. It can be quite dark inside the oven, so grab your flashlightand shine it to the rear of the oven's interior to locate where the bakeelement is connected to the oven wall.4 There will be two screws holding the bake element inplace. Remove the two screws and place them somewhere where you will not losethem. Now, pull the bake element out of the oven wall. There will be wiresattached to each "leg" of the bake element. Note: There is usuallynot much wire to work with, so do not pull too hard. Once you have about 4 or 5inches of wire exposed, place a piece of black electrical tape over the wire atthe point where it enters the oven. This will help keep the wire from fallingback inside the hole.5 At the point where the wires are connected to thebake element, you should see a screw. Remove the screws and separate the wiresfrom the bake element. Keep the old element for reference when shopping for anew element that matches the old one exactly.6 Install the new element by connecting one wire toeach leg of the element with the screws, just as they were with the oldelement. Wrap a layer of white fiberglass tape around the terminals. Push thewires back through the holes in the rear of the oven until the bake element isback in position. Use the screws to secure the new element to the oven wall, asbefore.7 Replace the oven door if you removed itearlier. Plug in the oven, then turn the breaker back on. Turn on the oven andtest the new element. You may notice some smoke coming off of the element as itheats up for the first time. This is ok, as these are just oils burning off ofit. The smoke will stop in a few seconds.Thanks.

Oven element will not come on but broiler works .This is the top oven


There are three possible defects to conside. In order of likelihood given what you've described...

1) The bake element is defective. You can remove it and check it with an ohm meter. A good one would be roughly 20 to 40 ohms, a bad element has high (or very high) resistance.

2) The oven thermostat. It controls both the bake and broil elements, but has seperate control circuits (contacts) for each. The bake element is used most and most likely to fail. You *can* check for voltage while its operating, but if you aren't sure of what you're doing its an unnecessary danger. If you eliminate the element (#1 above) and the wiring (#3 below) then the thermostat is what you have to replace.

3) The wiring from the thermostat to the bake element could be defective. (I'm sorry, I don't know if your bake element has a socket or just wiring. It is possible for a bad socket to burn and pit the element's contacts and to have to replace both.). This is the least common cause, but if you test the bake element resistance at the thermostat, that includes the wiring, and if the element by itself is good, but not with the wiring then its the wiring. Since the broil element works, the wiring feeding power to the thermostat is good, and the only wiring to check was from the thermostat to the bake element.

Oven not heating up light ok fan ok


hi Lorraine. Thanks for choosing fixya! 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.
