Question about GE Profile JKP56 Electric Double Oven

Lower and Upper ovens not heating

I have power to the control panel and the display is not flashing any errors. I can still program a baking temperature but neither of the ovens are heating up. I checked the main breaker to the oven and got my full voltage 240 going to the unit. I do not have access to the back of the oven unless i take the whole units fully out. Is there a way i can verify without taking the unit out to get to the wall connection? I want to make sure  that I have all my phases coming in because it appears i lost my phase for the heating elements.  IT's a GE PROFILE JKP56B0A1BB built in double oven. It's about 8 yrs old.

    I reset the resettable limit switch, and that got the lower oven working.  But the upper oven is still not heating.  I checked the fan switch and it's open.  Should it be an open switch or should it be closed and only open when it gets to the limit?  Here's the model number for that switch (WB24K5085).




    Thanks for the last response.

Whirlpool built in electric oven


The upper element is for broiling and should not come on until you tell it broil. If it is coming on as soon as you turn on the breaker then it sounds like the printed circuit control board is bad. There is a relay on the board that engages when you program in the broiler. The relay can be hard to find and may not be removable. My broiler would come on when I programmed in the bake mode, go into runaway heat, put up a F10 code, and shut off. I could not clear it until I programmed in the clean mode for 2 hours. Now it works great.

Jtp45 lower oven hot heating on any cycle


Possibly a tripped thermal fuse. Should be located behind the panel in between the upper and lower ovens. Might have a red reset button on it you can push down. If it clicks and then works again, look for possible cooling fan problems.

It is common to have the broil element pulse on or they will send 120 volts to the broil element to even the heat in the oven. Some ovens have a preheat function that will power the broil and bake simultaneously until the oven reaches temperature then the broil element will shut down. If they both stay on red continuously through the entire bake process then something is wrong. Probably a stuck contact on the control.

Shortly after end of 1 year warranty, KEMS378SSS04 began displaying F6E0 Lost Communication on lower over UI (not on the microwave). Turning power off/on (multiple times required sometimes) fixes the...


Hi,

Below is the complete instruction sheet.

You are having a communication error between the appliance. Here is the actual tech manual instructions for that code:

PROCEDURE: Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START to enter Diagnostic

mode and verify the error codes. Ensure AM software, UI software and EEPROM

CHECKSUM versions appear on the lower text line. If AM software and EEPROM

versions do not appear, UI and AM may not be communicating. Verify this for the

lower oven UI and for the microwave (upper oven) UI. The lower oven UI will show

the AM software version for the lower oven appliance manager, and the microwave

UI will show the AM software and EEPROM versions for the microwave appliance

manager.

If the lower oven UI is not displaying the AM software version, go to UI IS NOT

DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION.

If the upper oven UI is not displaying the AM software and EEPROM versions,

go to UPPER OVEN UI IS NOT DISPLAYING THE AM SOFTWARE AND

EEPROM VERSIONS.

If lower oven UI and microwave UI are both displaying an error, go to LOWER

OVEN UI AND MICROWAVE UI ARE BOTH DISPLAYING AN ERROR.

UI IS NOT DISPLAYING AM SOFTWARE VERSION:

A. Unplug oven or disconnect power.

B. Open the back panels and make sure the P6 and P2 connectors are fully

inserted on the appliance manager and on the lower oven user interface board.

- If they are not plugged in, plug in connectors and go to step F.

- If they are plugged in, go to step C.

C. Visually inspect all wires between P6 on the appliance manager and P2 on the

lower user interface.

- Make sure wires are not cut or pinched.

- If the wires appear to be intact, perform a continuity check between

P6-1 of the appliance manager and P2-1 of the user interface board.

Complete for P6-2(AM) to P2-2(UI), P6-4(AM) to P2-4(UI) and P6-5(AM) to

P2-5(UI). All the measurements made should be less than 5 ?. If any of

these measurements exceeds 5 ?, go to step E.

D. Replace the appliance manager. Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

E. Replace the wiring harness (signal). Ensure all connectors are properly inserted.

F. Replace all parts and panels before operating.

G. Plug in oven or reconnect power.

H. Observe for longer than 1 minute to determine if error has been repaired.

I. If error does not appear, initiate a bake cycle. Let the cycle run for at least

1 minute.

- If no error occurs, cancel the cycle, the problem has been repaired.

- If error occurs again, restart the troubleshooting procedure at step A.

At step D, replace the lower oven user interface board if appliance

manager has already been replaced.
- If both are replaced the problem has been repaired.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Ov en will not heat up. no broiler heat or bake heat model number 790.96614407


Hi,

Your symptoms point to a failure in the electronic oven control board (that acts as the thermostat for the oven in this type of range). Unplug the range and remove the upper back panel to access this component. You will likely see to burn marks on the control board. The control board will need to be replaced in this situation.

Before installing the control board, I recommend that you check the bake and broil elements. Look for damage on both elements. Remove the lower back panel (with the range still unplugged ) and check the wiring connections on both elements. A damaged or shorted bake or broil element could have caused the problem with the control board.



Hope this helps.

possible solution for above...this would apply to any electric oven.

First of all there are two elements.. one for baking (lower) and one for broiling. (upper) . I assume the lower is not working but is the upper.

Unplug the oven. Then remove the element and have a look at and the connections.

I found that on an lolder ovens where I thought the element had burned out that the electrical connections- ( screwed or spade connection) was so badly corroded that electrical contact was poor. I might add that this was also a fire hazzard.

The convection fan comes on intermittently, starts smoking then goes off. Temperature on the display doesn't move from 100F (then it did). My wife left the door closed while it was on broil last night (not sure how long), and this morning I woke up to the smell of burnt electrical and something (one of the fans...? not sure as it was far earlier than I usually get up) running that stopped when I opened the oven door and restarted when I closed it (I'm thinking it was probably running all night). While at work, I turned the breaker off, then pulled the oven out this evening. After taking some of the metal plates off, I put the power back on and turned the oven on for a 450F bake. I don't know if the little cooling fan at the top of the unit is supposed to go on when I have the top exposed and getting plenty of air; it wasn't and it also had a faint burnt electrical smell. After disconnecting then plugging the fan power connector to the circuit board the fan ran for 10-15 seconds before it started smoking and quit. I checked voltage across the fan leads and there wasn't any. I shut the oven off, tripped the breaker, and let it cool. I then tried testing the fan motor directly i.e. bypassing the oven and using a regular outlet since the motor is rated for 120V. It ran for ~1 minute, then smoked and quit. The smoke is definitely coming from the fan rather than any adjoining wires. Is this a case of the fan AND the control board going south or one contributing to the other's demise? I should add that the clock display has been dimming for a couple of years. UPDATE (2/20): I tried just baking (as opposed to convection baking) and the bottom element did come on (I'd reported earlier that it hadn't... that was because I was using convection baking and that does only heat around the fan... just my ignorance on that one). However, the temperature readout on the display did not move from 100F though it was clearly hotter than that in the oven. I then stopped the baking mode and started convection baking. This time the temperature gauge immediately went to 141F and kept climbing. Resistance at the (room temp) temperature sensor (and at the end of the wiring harness plugged into the control board was ~1100 ohms at room temp (as its supposed to be).
