Question about GE JKP27 Electric Double Oven

GE Built-In Double Oven Upper Self-Cleaning Over model JKP27G0J4BG

The Lower Element (bake element) burned out. I replaced the element but it still won't work. Everything else Including the upper element and oven light works. When you test the voltage on the wires that attach to the element you get these results. The left wire reads 13.88 volts. The right wire reads 118 volts. When you put one test lead on the right wire and the other the left wirethe reading is 40.2 volts. Readings were taken when the oven was set on 350 on the temp dial and Bake on the switch dial. Can you tell me what is wrong?

SOURCE: GE Wall Oven - No heat (broil or bake)

On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

SOURCE: OLD GE Wall Oven doesn't heat properly

On these older ovens ther is usually always 120 volts on the elements at all times.
If you check across the element ends with it in bake you should read 240V. If not, there is a problem with the control. With the voltage drop you describe, it sounds like you are losing power on one line of voltage coming to the element.
Post back to let me know what you find out or if you have any questions.

SOURCE: gas oven won't light on bake setting

If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. Faulty gas valve is uncommon, but still a small possibility. Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

PS For your model number the original part number was WB13K4 or WB13K0004, which is a round ignitor, though on the breakdown a rectangular one is shown, so check carefully.

Good luck!

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Your lower element may be burned out. Generally you can firmly grasp and pull it out. Take it to a repair shop and get a replacement unit. Then simply snap it back into the same outlet where you remove the first one. It sound as if you've tried everything else so it must be the unit that is bad.

My ge jtp56woa1ww double electric oven will not bake in the top oven. broiler in the top oven seam fine. Lower oven functions great in both features. What to do?


Sounds like the bottom element, or element wire in the top oven is burned out, Check to see if the element is broken, or swollen. Two signs of a burned element.

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.

Heating element on upper oven of a wall Thermador Oven


The control switch may be bad on it. If there are 2 elements on the top, they both are not bad at the same time.Check to see if the wires have not burned off the control switch first. Check to see if your breakers are O.K. Turn them both(maybe 3) off and then reset.

a try to get your WB44X200 bake element. (Yes, 30 + years,..... had to go bad into the microfische to find that part number) Part is still available and is rather easy to change yourself.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
