Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven
I have a 10 year old GE profile radiant slide-in electric range. Both the broiler and baking elements work, but self-clean is not cleaning. the Self clean function responds as usual, locks the door and counts down 4 hours, but never gets hot enough to clean the oven. The appliance repairman saidthat " selfclean" is just a combo of baking and broiling simultaneously at very hi heat. "You burnt out your baking element so I'll replace it", Well, the baking element works, as it did before, and the self clean still does not. the baking element cycled on and off during the self clean. If it's not hot enough, why would it cycle off?
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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi Chris Stewart - If the bake element and the top of the range works, but just not the heating element, then you possibly have a bad broiler element or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then the control board may possibly be faulty and needs replacing. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.
