JBP66G W1AD Oven won't get hot enough

11 year old oven wasn't heating properly. Bottom element crumbled when I touched it. Replaced bottom element. Still wouldn't get above 200F, and takes it forever to get there.

Replaced heat sensor in oven. Didn't fix it.

Replaced electronic panel on top. Didn't fix it.

Checked breaker and power cord, both good.

Pulled panel off back of stove, started checking wires. Heat sensor checks 1097 ohms. Top element 19 ohms, bottom 24.

Found a yellow wire running from back of control panel down to where bottom element sticks through, but the yellow wire wasn't hooked to anything on the other end. I don't recall any yellow wire being attached to bottom element when I changed it.

Cannot find wiring diagram for stove.

Where does this wire go and is this my problem??

Thanks for your help
Todd

Single element stove oven, doesn't get hot enough


Your oven probably has a feature called a hidden bake element. The element is located beneath the floor of the oven. (Because of this, NEVER put aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven because it will get hot enough to melt the aluminum foil and make it bond to the bottom of your oven.) You can adjust the temperature of your oven through the electronic oven controls. Check your owner's manual for how to do this.

Bottom oven bottom element doesn't heat


Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60

In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?


It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

Oven won't get up to higher heats


Both bake elements still work? Both top and bottom bake elements?

It is possible that the thermostat on your oven needs calibration. However, major errors in temperature may be the result of a bad heating element, blown fuse or tripped breaker, a door that doesn't close or seal properly, etc. Confirm that the oven is in otherwise good operating condition before attempting calibration.

Most thermostats have a calibration screw located under the knob. Try pulling the knob off and look at the shaft. Some shafts have a small screw located in the center. Rotating this screw will change the trip point at which the thermostat will turn on and off. This is determined by the sensor located inside the oven itself. Some other schemes allow for the entire control to rotate with respect to the scale. You will need to identify the type used on your oven

Let me know if I can help you to recalibrate, but I recommend calling an appliance serviceperson because they'll have thermostats and know how to adjust your temperature calibration.

Oven will not heat up to the higher temperature range


Are you sure that both elements are working?
I would try the top element alone by selecting 'Broil,' and the bottom element is easy enough; a hand on the bottom in a cold oven just turned on.
The bottom element alone can probably produce a good bit of heat but I think for higher temps both need to be functional.

2.Was there an error code that came up before you changed the heat element?
3.If yes what was the code?

4.Did you check for current in the connection leading to the element before you installed the new one? Or just plug it in hoping for the best?

Waiting for your reply!

Oven will not heat to requested temperature


Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back
