Question about Ovens
GE Model: JKP86SH5SS Electric that 'has' main circuit power (clocks work, the upper Microwave functions fine)... neither the bake nor broil 'element' heat up. The Fan comes on when you select a 'bake' setting but never any heat. We have not done a 'cleaning cycle' - unit has never been baked above 475 deg. No codes showing on LED. Ouch.. thanks for any help!
On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.
