Question about GE JBP65 Electric Kitchen Range
Our Westinghouse EW100SD oven has malfunctioned. It no longer operates on Bake or Fan Bake, there is no heat coming from the bottom element. Our unit has had 3 years of domestic use. The manual talks about a fuse however I can find no fuse after removing the top and back covers. I can see no signs of scorching or overheating in any of the wiring leading from the controls to the elements.
Can you please advise us?
We live in a remote location and casn not get service personel out to our place without spending a fortune on call out fees.
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

Take the 2 screws out of the back wall of the oven (inside) holding the element on. Then pull the element out and it will expose the wires and terminals (2). Unplug the 2 wires and plug them on the new element and mount the element back in the oven and your fixed. (make sure to turn the power off to the oven before you start unpluging wires.

Please be careful - Be sure to remove all power from the unit.
The Black wires that go to the elements are not grounded, they have 115VAC on them so use great care.
This is what my JBP90 looks like viewed from the rear:
Top Element (Broil) has 2 wires - 1 BLACK on left, 1 RED on right
Center Element(Convection) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 BLUE on right
Bottom Element (Bake) has 3 wires - 2 BLACK on left, 1 Yellow on right
