Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven
My ge profile convection oven's bake function does not work however the broil function does. Some months ago something shorted in the instrumnet panel and since then the bake does not work. the setting for the temperature and the bake light come on. i was told it was either a sensor or the mother board. Can you please help, i cannot afford a new oven at this time and Sears is charging me over 200 just to make the visit. Thanks
There is only a probe sensor, located inside the oven cavity. This sensor controls both oven baking and broiling functions. If the problem is only when baking, then it is not the temperature probe.
The problem is usually the baking element. The element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading impedance on the element's contact with the aid of a multimeter.
Multimeter must be set to read Ohms (impedance) on Rx1. If impedance is infinite (circuit open), then the element must be replaced.
In case the element is good, then the problem will be either the Electronic Control (what you called mother board, often called ERC), or a broken wiring.
