SOURCE: installing ge profile double oven

You must use a three-wire, single-phase A.C.
208Y/120 Volt or 240/120 Volt, 60 hertz
electrical system. If you connect to aluminum
wiring, properly installed connectors approved
for use with aluminum wiring must be used.

That means that you ned a double 40 amp breaker.

Good Luck

SOURCE: ge xl44 oven not igniting but burners ignite

The most common failure for a nobake on this type of oven is the bake ignitor. turn unit on and look at the bottom of the oven, you should after about 30-45 seconds see an ORANGE glow, if you do not, chances are you have a failed ignitor.Remove lower part of oven and if you have a meter, place one lead on each terminal and check for continuity( a closed circuit)
If you have an "open" circuit, the ignitor is bad

SOURCE: how to install GE JKP35DPBB 27" Double Electric

The specs for this double oven give a rating of 5.1kW at 208V so it needs a 30 Amp circuit breaker. This assumes that the oven is the only appliance on the circuit. So you should be able to use the same circuit breaker.

A bigger consideration is that the opening for the double oven needs to be larger than that of the single oven. If the opening does not have a solid bottom, it must be able to support a heavier load. The runners and braces under a single oven has to support 200 pounds (91 kg). A double oven must have braces and runners designed to hold 375 pounds (171 kg).

Also check if your household uses aluminum wiring. The new oven has copper and problems will occur at the interface if you do not use the appropriate precautions. (Products designed for mating copper and aluminum are available - follow the directions).

I hope this helps.

(btw: you can find the User's Guide and Installation manual for the double oven at GE's website: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=JKP35DPBB . See the section Literature and Manuals on the left hand side of the page below the picture of the oven.)

I have a JT955 GE Profile 30"double oven...when the food is cooked, and I press "clear/Off", the oven won't shut off...continues to maintain temperature? Tonight, I had to shut it off,...


Your wall oven has two main components that control the oven. The main control computer and the user interface. Your problem is probably in the user interface, although it could be the main control or both. I have had some success cleaning the ribbon that connects the user interface to the control with a little rubbing alcohol. That only works some of the time though. Due to the fact that the oven works except for the cancel button I would lean towards replacing the user interface if cleaning the ribbon dose not work.

I have a GE Profile JT952series Electric Double Oven and the keypad is not turning on the bottom oven


Check your breaker box to make sure the breakers are ON.. these typically are double throw breakers.. it is possible one of them has been thrown open.. so flip that double throw off and back on.. then check..I have seen one side of these breakers fail.. unusual.. but it happens.. then a replacement is in order.. regardless. visually it may appear the breaker is closed..but upon closer inspection.. one side may be "spongy/open". There are always exceptions..so examine the breaker box carefully.

If one breaker is open..it would be wise to keep an eye on things to determine how it got that way in the first place. If the breaker will not close or throws/pops again..you either have a bad breaker or a wiring problem..in some cases the element may have grounded out..or burned a wire.. etc.

Next thing to check for is a bad element.. Remember..this is a 220volt hot circuit with a high amperage breaker.. BE CAREFUL.. USE CAUTION.. Failure to do so could result in serious injure or DEATH.

Turn off power at the breaker box to the oven.. test the working over to make sure the power is OFF.

Remove the oven racks
Remove the screws at the base of the element

Pull the element toward you

Note how the wire(s) are connected

Disconnect the wires.. checking for broken or lose terminals..if lose or broken..repair.

You will need a volt ohm meter for the following..

Test the Element for continuity. Place each probe on the terminal ends (manual will have ratings) generally if you have continuity it probably works..

Test for a grounded/short.. one probe to element the other to terminal end..if you have continuity.. it's shorted out. Test both terminals

Replace with a new one if needed.. reverse procedure. Turn on the power .. and test for proper operation.

Again.. 220 VOLTS..HIGH AMPERAGE.. USE CAUTION..not doing so could result in injury or DEATH

After you have done the above..and get an all pass..then it's on to controllers and temp sensors.

Best of luck

We had lighting come in and now our GE electric oven doesn't work. The range top still works but the oven display does not. Any idea's?


Look for a reset or fuse on the unit. If lightening hit, the surge could have wiped it out, as you already know. But hopefully GE put a fuse or breaker in the unit. You just have to find it, if it exists.
According to GE, a diagram is located in behind the control panel. If you can safely remove it (CIRCUIT BREAKER OFF) you may find the protection devices that GE has in place. You may also
find the fuse or breaker hiding in there too! Good luck.
NEVER ACCESS AN APPLIANCE WITHOUT FIRST TURNING OFF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER
OR UNPLUGGING THE UNIT. BE SAFE.

Throwing the breaker .had the oven for 6 weeks working fine now turned on the upper oven and the breaker threw. the house/wirting is only 10 years old?


Hi,
You have a problem in the oven not in the house wiring...you probably have a bad element in that oven and it is shorted...this throws that breaker when you turn it on...

I have a ge jkp86 electric oven the oven will not heat up .the microwave works and all displays work


First thing that comes to mind is to make sure you are getting the correct voltage to the oven, you need 220 / 240 volts, check your breakers, fuses ,etc.
It is possable for the microwave oven to operate even if the power supplied to the oven is only 110 volts, but that low of voltage is not enough to power up the ovens heating elements.
If all seems well there, then maybe the oven element has failed / shorted ?
Good luck !

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.
