Question about GE Ovens
Stove will not turn off CHECK
Temperature Control Thermostat
If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. The electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat can weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.
Oven Control Board
The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.
Some ovens are equipped with a relay board. This circuit board has several relays which control the switching of electrical current to the oven heat source. If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately. ALSO CHECK THE BAKE AND BROIL ELEMENT.

Although this is an easy repair, the element is not a real common one so many service / parts stores may not have the WB44K5018 in stock. Make sure to get on finding one fast to make T day go smoothly. Here in the midwest I use C.E. Sundberg for a lot of my parts, as they have a good stock and are fast. (they have this part on hand at their main branch in Chicago and at Omaha, Fargo, and St. Louis Park (MPLS). The repair is essentially: Turn off power. Remove two 1/4 inch hex head screws. Pull element forward a couple inches into oven cavity to access the electrical terminals. Remove push on wires from old element. Install new element. One of the easier repairs.

3 to 4 hours is a long time. Get to the fans (behind the control panel) and check the screens for dust. Chances are the screens are clogged with dust and need to be cleaned so the fans can move air for cooling better. I had this problem on my GE JTP14, and after cleaning just one fan it can keep up with cooling the electronic area while the oven is running. It runs much less often.
Safety first! cut the breaker before removing anything with a nice conductive screwdriver! Hope this helps!

You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.
That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.
