Question about GE Ovens

1 Answer

I have a GE Double Oven (electric) model #Jtp27... The bottom oven is perfect, the display seems to work great, the broiler on the top works great but the top oven when baking won't go above about 200 degrees. I'm thinking about replacing the heating element but any guidance would be great. Thanks.

Replacing the heating element isn't a bad idea. You will be needing a screw driver to achieve this. Follow the below instruction on how to successfully replace the heating element of your GE Oven.
Stove Top Heating Element

  1. Unplug the GE range from the wall outlet.
  2. Lift it up enough to clear the reflector bowl. Pull the element away out of the terminal block.
  3. Insert the replacement element into the terminal block. It should have a snug fit. Once it is in the terminal block, gently lower the other until it sits in the reflector bowl.
Oven Heating Element
  1. Remove the screws attaching the heating element to the back of the oven using a screwdriver.
  2. Pull the element toward you. Disconnect the element from the wire connectors. Pull each wire at the connector to remove them from the heating element terminals.
  3. Connect the new heating element to the connecting wires by pushing the wires on the terminals.
  4. Attach the new heating element to the back of the oven using the attaching screws.
Good luck.

My top broiler won't turn on. Everything else works fine. I have exchanged the top broiler element with the bottom. So I know it isn't the element.

Could be wiring. Did it work before? Maybe, never connected? Could be demand of two oven's and or broilers at the same time exceeded the wire and circuit breaker capacity when installed and therefore were never connected.
Otherwise thermostat. Probably need appliance Tec or Electrician.

Frigidaire double convection wall ovens, model GLEB30T9DSA ... The top oven will not heat, both the bottom element and the broiler.....

I have the Frigidaire PLEB30S8CCA single wall oven. About 3 months ago the baking element appeared to have gone out. We replaced it, but still didn't work. We ended up sending our control board off to a company named Corecentric. They fixed the problem and returned it to us. The oven has worked perfectly ever since. I searched extensively for a new one, but no one sold them anymore. I found Corecentric on Ebay. They were able to confirm over the phone that it was more than likely a control board issue. It cost about $130. My husband was able to do it himself by taking a couple before px and using them when reassembling it.

Only bottom of the electric double wall oven works . lts a 1969 G.E.

If you can, test for power to the element in the top oven. If there is power coming to the element, it could be that the element is bad and can be replaced. If there is now power coming to the top oven there could be a more serious issue in a 40 year old oven
