Question about GE JBP90 Electric Kitchen Range

Oven lower element wiring

In replacing the main element in this oven, I found three wires (two black, one yellow) attached. Is there a proper connection for this wiring? I suppose the two black wires go on opposite terminals of the element. But, is the location of the yellow wire significant?

I just looked at the back wiring of my JBP90 oven. The main element (bottom) has both black wires together on one element terminal and the single yellow wire on the opposite terminal. Not that it should matter, but both blacks are on the left and the yellow is on the right as viewed from behind the oven.

Good Luck!

GE Oven # J BP65G V1AD. Wires burned through 2" behind attachment point to element. replaced wire with 14 awg stranded high heat nickel appliance wire. In process I erased the pencil mark...


normally theres 2 wires on the right side spade lug looking in from the oven front where it plugs in and both of the bake elements have a black wire on the spades and the right side has 2 wires off that terminal,but to simplify the correct connection take a volt-meter (NOT connecting the element) and connect to the single black wire on the left spade on the element on one meter probe and connect the right side to the other wires at a time and then switch on the oven and broiler at separate times and see which wires read 240volts when that switch is energized at that time

What is the wire conection sequence


If there is no earth wire to the element, then it it does not matter which wire goes on the terminals of the heater, as they are common, so,as long as you do not connect the wires to earth, it will be o/k.
If one wire is green/yellow, then that goes to rearth.
Hope this helps.

I need to replace the bottom element in my oven


You need to check the heating element for continuity and the thermistor for continuity. Use an ohmmeter or multimeter to check. The element should not be any reading over 24 ohms for a 220-250V supply and not over 12 ohms for a 110Vac supply. A good tip is to take digital photos of the job before starting on removing and testing wiring etc so that you can refer back to it if you have to replace any items or forget which wires attach to any particular terminal etc.

To test and replace the element:

  1. Turning off the mains power to the oven.
  2. Remove the lower back panel. Fan assisted ovens will have a coiled 2 or 3 turn element around the outside of the fan.
  3. Remove the 2 power connectors to the grill element if one is fitted.
  4. Check the element resistance reading on the main oven heating element and not the grill element.
  5. The thermistor or fusible link is located on top of the oven cavity if fitted and has two wires attached to it - most likely to be red and black or both white wires.
  6. Remove the earthing wire to the main oven heating element screw terminal.
  7. Unscrew the grill element securing screws(s) - there will be 1 or 2 depending on the element fitted to your oven. Do this from inside the oven cavity itself.
  8. Refit the new element (make sure it has the same mounting screw holes as the one you want to remove) then secure it.
  9. Reconnect the earthing wire to the element screw post.
  10. Make sure that neither of the element tags touch the chassis - check with a continuity tester of ohm meter and adjust if required.
  11. Reconnect the power cables to the main oven heating element.
  12. Reconnect the power cables to the grill element if one is fitted.
  13. Reconnect the power and check that the element works correctly.
  14. Disconnect the mains power again and replace the rear panel(s).
  15. Reconnect the mains power and recheck that the oven, and if appropriate the grill, functions correctly.

Oven blows main switch


There is a short circuit between the lower oven control and the lower element.
Disconnect the lower element. Put electrical tape on the loose terminals and turn the lower oven on.
If it does not blow, replace the lower element with a new element.
If it does blow, Check the wiring to the lower element for continuity to the frame of the range.
If you get continuity replace the damaged wire..
Finally, check the control knob switch for continuity to ground on the frame of the oven.

Where to connect third (yellow) wire to lower heating element


A local appliance repairman solved the problem in ten minutes. Charged me $30.00. The two black wires fasten to one terminal, the yellow wire fastens to the other.
I notice you have billed me for your service. Your ads advice if the problem cannot be solved by your technicians, there is no charge. Please credit my account.

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

Oven heats up very slowly and does not get very hot


Check your power to the oven at the terminals where the power cord connects.Should be 220 volts. Also check the terminals of the bake element for loose connections or a burnt wire.
