Question about GE JKP45 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

Broilers suddenly stopped working

Hi- The top elements in both top and bottom ovens have both stopped working and this occured at the same time (not when using them at the same time ). When in the broil mode, neither will come on at all. In the bake mode, both ovens burn the bottom of the cake while the top is underdone. The top elements in both ovens do not come on. What is odd is that this happened at the same time - but I get no error code on my display. Are the elements dead (coincidentally at the same time) or is the touchpad bad? Help!

Gerrie824 look at the elements and see if there is cracks in them. If so then yes they failed. During bake the broil elements come on in 1/2 power to brown the top of what you are baking. If there isn't a break in the elements, then the issue could be a burnt wire, failed relay, or such.

My top broiler won't turn on. Everything else works fine. I have exchanged the top broiler element with the bottom. So I know it isn't the element.


Could be wiring. Did it work before? Maybe, never connected? Could be demand of two oven's and or broilers at the same time exceeded the wire and circuit breaker capacity when installed and therefore were never connected.
Otherwise thermostat. Probably need appliance Tec or Electrician.

Most ovens/ranges that fail to work are stopped by the timer.  Many landlords cut the wires to a mechanical timer when possible because of the number of times an oven will not work...  this is not possible with todays electronic timers so you have to be very familiar with them to turn the range back on and have it stay on.

Bottom oven doesn't heat after running self-clean cycle


Usually, when an oven won't heat, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

Thermador SC301T heating elements not working (top and bottom). elements look fine, oven turns on but elements stay cold.... any help would be appreciated. thanks, Tony


Its the thermal safety switch. When it trips - it cuts any power from reaching BOTH elements. Open the oven door - at the top wehere the oven latch is - remove the long black panel. In the middle - on the right is a small cylindrical switch...push down on the top - in the very center...it will rest the switch (like a circuit breaker) and then reassemble. Just did it on mine (2nd time) and it fired right up. Good luck

Fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work


I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.

318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer

Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.

The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.

To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.

NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
