Oven will not heat

GE Conventional Oven Model JKP86W0F3WW will not heat. Replace the probe, and bottom element. Now suspect it is limit disc switch. Where is that located. Directions and schematic say that it is self re-setting....but that appears not to be the case. Where is this part physically located in the oven sheetmetal?

    Document had nothing to do with my problem

  • carichter May 09, 2009

    I am not getting any F codes on the display...display appears to be working nornally. I had dislplay out of the microwave cabinet and cannot see anything that looks like a disc. I also had the oven out of the wall and looked on the back under two different dust covers....no disc. The bottom element and heat sensor probe have both been replaced. Where else should I look and what does this disc limit switch physically look like. can you post a picture?

  • carichter May 09, 2009

    Let me add that this a double oven Built-In unit with the microwave on top with a conventional oven on the bottom.

    Oven is electric there is no igniter

  • carichter May 09, 2009

    Ok, There is also a glass tube looking fuse under the display....could that also be the problem? What is that fuse used for?

  • carichter May 09, 2009

    Don't the heating elements operate off of 240V ......that is the supply that is coming into the oven

  • carichter May 09, 2009

    Can you describe to me what this limit disc switch might look like? Where would I find it?

This has nothing to do about the disk you are asking, im new here just trying to help, here is a test that i want you to do, connect your heater , it is the main element that turns hot the one you have replaced and have it directly connected to the main outlet and see if it can produce heat.if it can then we will continue troubleshooting where the fault is coming from. , i believe the heater have 2 terminals use at least # 18 AWG wire size for safety, hope this help

You need to replace the bake igniter
You can get to this by removing the panel off the back of the oven

  • machadojr_fe May 09, 2009

    I apologize in that case
    Remove the back cover and locate the common wire for the bake and the broil heating elements.

    Remove this wire from the heating elements terminals and check for 120V
    between this wire and the ground when the control calls for heat.

    If there is no 120V, then the control board has to be replaced.


  • machadojr_fe May 09, 2009

    Yes you are correct sorry it should be 240v
    120v was for another customer I was helping with the same problem

The thermo safety disc is supposed to reset itself when it cools off but it just might be burnt out. It has to be near the heat source but easily accessible to the tech so look somewhere close to the controls. Or look behind the dust cover on the rear of the appliance. In SOME models the fuse is also the probe which doubles as the sensor.Oven will not heat - 15c1694.jpgIf you are getting an F3 code this dude is the problema.

I recently ran the self-clean option on my GE Profile JK955B0F5BB. Now when I set the touch pad to 350 degrees or more, the oven heats up to beyond 500.


That is not a valid model number, the issue is most likely the thermostat has failed. The part is about 12 dollars.

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

BOUGHT A HOME IN UNION NJ WITH THE GE DOUBLE WALL OVEN TOP PART DOES NOT WORK BOTTOM PART BURNS THE FOOD NEED REPAIR PLS CALL ME AT 908-391-8942


The heating element in top unit may be loose or burned out. Push the element toward the back and see if it engages. If it is already engaged, you'll need to replace it. It is simple to remove it.Just give a firm tug and it should come right out. To replace with a new element, simply push it in firmly.
With the bottom unit, are controls set for bake? If they are set for "broil" you are using direct heat and it will cook foods more quickly.Also, is bottom unit a convection oven? If so, foods will cook in 1/4 to 1/2 the time for a conventional oven, so you'll have to adjust your temperature down about 25-50 degrees and shorten your cooking time.

Main fan oven does not work, conventional main oven does work


The element is where you said and yes it can be replaced without removing the oven. Remove the bacplate from inside the oven and you will see the element and fan. Remove the screws from the element and gently pull it forward then remove the 2 wires and keep hold whilst you fit the new element. Replace screws in the element refit the backplate job done.

GE P7 Wall oven had bad thermostat????


IF YOUR HEATING ELEMENT IS GETTING ORANGE HOT, AND CYCLING, I WOULD SUSPECT THE THERMOSTAT TO BE THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND IT HARD TO FIND ONE THOUGH DUE TO ITS AGE.

F2 Oven overheats


jaz3133, it's probably the temp sensor that has gone bad. You should be able to get it from the front. It's the probe that comes out from the back wall of the oven. You can have someone ohm it out. Should read approx 1100 ohms at room temp. Part number for the temp sensor is WB20K5040. Make sure power is off befor removing the sensor. Catriver..post back.
