SOURCE: oven popped and smoked
seatie, as long as you have the breaker off to the oven you should be o.k. Sounds like something shorted to the oven cabinet. It could be the terminal connection on the heating element itself. The main board could of shorted out. Without being there it's hard to tell, but you will be fine until GE arrives as long as the breaker to the oven is off. Catriver.

BrianGem posted a great solution back in May of '08, I just completed that fix on my own Jenn air, took me about 30 minutes once I got the correct capacitor.
The display board apparently has a weak spot in the design, most likely heat related, (probably low priced components from offshore sources)
Fix: Replace heat damaged capacitor labeled C3 on display board, Hard part will be obtaining the 35Volt 68uF capacitor, I'm lucky enough to have a Brother in the electronics design field who found me a couple of high reliability caps designed for hot applications, He does not recommend changing sizes without design review for fear of overloading another component, however several other posts have indicated that a 35V 100mF cap has worked fine for them.
TURN OFF POWER TO OVEN PRIOR TO STARTING ANY REPAIRS.
My control panel was attached to the oven with 4 screws accessed from above the top oven door, the panel slid up about 1/2 " and lifted off, Unplug the ribbon cables and the panel can be removed to a convenient work surface. The display board itself is mounted with 4 screws and connected with a wide flat ribbon cable, the suspect capacitor is surface mounted to the reverse side of the board, two plastic clips need to be released (gently) and the ribbon cable unplugged. Capacitor is likely discolored or leaking, Using as small a soldering iron as you can find De-solder it and replace with new, match polarity marks and don’t use any more solder than needed.
If you run into trouble drop me an e-mail to email@example.com and I’ll try to help.
Thanks for this site..

Had the same problem. I repaired the board myself and ordered a replacement from sears parts direct. It is a repaired board not a new one but has the same warranty. You can get this board a lot faster. Here is the link. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/8302319R/0022/664. If you would like to repair your own board leave a post and I will help you.
