Question about GE Ovens

1 Answer

Do you know how to test the fans on a GE Double Wall Oven (Model # JKP45W0P2WG) to see if they are working? I am wanting to make sure they are working prior to running a self-cleaning cycle. Thanks!

Don't know how to trigger them. Usu. come on during a self clean cycle, but I haven't heard them come on lately, so I want to make sure they are working before I run self-clean cycle again, so I don't blow a control board. Many thanks!

Some models the cooling fans come on when you start the oven. In some models the cooling fans comes on only when the control compartment reaches a certain temperature. In this case there is a reverse thermostat. It will close for the fan circuit when it reaches the temperature thus starting the cooling fan.

SOURCE: oven won't heat

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

    SOURCE: whirlpool rbd275pdb double wall oven died during self clean

    The first time we used our Whirlpool oven the same thing happened - no power and yet the circuit breaker was not blown. I called Whirlpool, and they sent out a technician to check it out as it was still under warranty. He said the temperature was off (too hot) by 20F - he adjusted. He also replaced the blower. What he did not tell me was that the thermal fuse had blown, and he replaced it - this was the REAL cause for the failure. I got the impression that he did not want to let me in on the secret. He did not note on the paperwork that he replaced the thermal fuse. Last week I decided to run the oven through the self-cleaning cycle (the oven is now 8-1/2 yrs old) - I don't believe that we cleaned the oven but a couple of times since the first time that it was "repaired." I used the default 3-1/2 hour setting. Everything appeared to be fine - the oven went through the cleaning cycle with no apparent problems. The display now read "cool down" - I went to bed thinking everything was okay. I got up the next morning only to find out that the power was out. I called Whirlpool and demanded that they repair the unit again as they clearly never fixed it correctly in the first place. They offered me 15% off on a new oven - WHOOPEE! I asked to speak with the supervisor - he did not budge either. I was upset, and I told him that I would NEVER purchase a Whirlpool appliance again! I decided to tear into the oven to see if I could detect anything wrong. I pulled out the front panel - everything looked okay. I then noticed the "thermal fuse" - I did not know what it was called at the time, but it looked familiar. I checked voltage on either side of the fuse and found the voltage to be zero on the downstream side of the fuse. I pulled it out and read the information on the device: Microtemp 110C. I called a local appliance repair shop - they told me that it would cost $50 to purchase a new fuse! I told them that seemed very high. I ended up stopping at Radio Shack. They have thermal fuses in various temperature and voltage ranges. I got a 144C 10A fuse and carefully soldered the connectors to it and replaced the protective plastic sleeve. I actually bypassed the thermal fuse in order to use the oven before I found the replacement fuse. While it is a good idea to have a protection device for the slim chance that an oven may malfunction by overheating, it is not a necessity for the functionality of the oven. Hopefully, the thermal fuse will not fail during my next attempt to self-clean the oven. I do have a concern about the 10 amp rating, but I'm sure that it will work fine.

    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

    Control board harvesting


    No, the parts aren't the same. The W2BB model has this code for that same part WB27T10283, while the A2BB model has this code for that part WB27T10292. The parts Look exactly the same in the diagrams, however in my past I have discovered the hard way that connectors and things in the circuitry are often different even if they fit. They're pretty pricey too 250 bucks or so...good luck!

    GE double oven Model JTP56WOA2WW top oven won't heat up, fan runs, relay clicks, no heat


    Hello & Welcome to FixYa

    This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the temp.sensor needs replacement. If you want to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

    Only bottom of the electric double wall oven works . lts a 1969 G.E.


    If you can, test for power to the element in the top oven. If there is power coming to the element, it could be that the element is bad and can be replaced. If there is now power coming to the top oven there could be a more serious issue in a 40 year old oven

    Double 27" oven Model No.911.48489 show F9,later beeping


    The F9 error message usually means that the oven temperature is above 600 degrees F. Check that the fan is operating. Make sure that it is not blocked. Make sure the vent areas are not blocked. There could also be a welded relay contact or high resistance in the oven sensor leads or connections.
