Question about GE Ovens

1 Answer

I need to replace a bake element for a 1950's GE Oven (Model # D14X1DC) but the exact volts and watts for a element are hard to find (236 volts, 3000 watts). Do the volts and watts have to be exactly the same for the replacement element or can I find something similar to work?

I always unplug oven or turn off power make sure though it will bite ya and hard after turning power off if you do it at the breaker turn stove top on make sure it don come on remember its 220volts and it hurts open oven door remove all racks.Then remove the screws mounting element to oven pull gently towards you (you may have to lift the front up a little) pull old element out until you see the spade connector (plug ins with the wires attached) remove these should be two of them be careful not to let wires go back into the cabinet put new element in hook wires back up to wires push back into the hole and put screws in turn power back on and test. this can also be done by taking the back off also and doing the same thing in the oven.hope this helps ya
good luck

SOURCE: GE Oven bake element not work

It sounds like a problem with the selector switch. You have to remove the back panel to get to the back of the switch in the head unit, and find what wire goes from there to the bake element. With a meter set on 240ACV, or whichever setting is on yours that's HIGHER than that i.e. 400ACV, with the red probe on the terminal and the black one going to ground, see if you are getting 210-240 through it. If so, then it's either a faulty neutral wire connection (the other wire coming out of the element) or the selector switch. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Oven heating element

Hello rvready
Welcome,


You said, We have an OLD (1950-60) Frigidaire wall oven, model # RBG-94. Bottom heating element has gone out. Oven is still in good shape so we'd like to be able to find an element replacement, but have had no luck finding one.

unfortunately,
I am not able to find this part either.
Anywhere. This oven is to old for parts. But most important is that it is causing you high utility rates!
Today's appliances save you the arm and the leg that such an old oven is costing you.
You have no idea how it is sucking your money out of your pocket!
It is unfortunate, that no one told you about this years ago!
You payed for more than one oven with your utility bill if you had it since it was new. My advice is do not put good money into bad!
Shop for a new one and see your bills go down.
my wife was telling me to replace the air and furnace for 7 years and I said, it's not broken. But it was over 20 years old. She was right, cause the new one saved me $100. a month!
That means I threw away $7000. in 6 years with my old world attitude.
Yes I am old fashion and always fix it!
But after 25 years of marriage. i finally realized she is a good evaluator and I was a fool to not appreciate her gift for all these years! And out tons more money than I told you about!

Hope I saved you some bucks with my real life stories!
Don't tell your wife!!!

SOURCE: how to replace a fan bake oven hidden element

Before attempting any repairs, make sure the power is turned off! If you are unsure or not confident, please call a service technician.
The element is behind a cover that is held in place either by screws or clips. Once the cover is removed, the element will be visible. The element will be screwed in place by a number of screws on the base plate and around the element itself. After removing the screws, pull the element fron the rear of the oven. the wires should be attached to the element via lugs. The lugs need to be unattached from the element. Before removing the wiring, take note of the connections so that reinstallation can be carried out.

Oven will not heat


GE Oven: If it only gets warm, it is not getting 220 volts. It may only be getting 110 volts. First check your breaker (double pole) and reset it manually. Since it is an older oven, there may be a break in one of the wires or connections. A voltmeter will indicate just how much current you have. Be careful.

Oven elements warm but do not get hot.


whats the resistance on the elements, how many watts are they?

make sure all wires are good, could have one broke about half way. you will need to check the resistance on the elements. you need to actually check the volts and use whats its closer to 240/220 you will have to find out the ohms so you know the element will get hot. if all the wiring is good start with the elements, you need w/v will tell you the amps. e/i will give you ohms, just use the equations in the pic to figure out what you need to know. it as to have enough resistance to get hot

I have a GE oven that the oven part only doesnt come on, the top burners and broiler come on, is this something I can fix?


Most likely a bad bake element. Turn off the power to the range. Remove the oven racks. Remove the retaining screws holding the bake element to the rear wall. Carefully pull the element terminals out of the rear wall. CAREFUL now,the wires will be short. Remove the wires. If you have a volt ohm meter you can test the element for continuity. Set the meter for ohms or continuity and touch one meter lead each to the element terminals. If you get no reading replace the element with a new one. If you do get a reading your ERC clock is bad.

Bottom oven element not working


Only 2 things left. A bad wire or bad control board.
Remove the rear panel. Set the range to bake,check power at the element terminals with a voltmeter. Ifyou do not have 220 volts at the element replace the ERC.(clock).

GE J BP27G R1AD Oven Not Heating Fully


Hi Jeff. You should have a wiring diagram with the range. Check for an envelope on the back of the range, inside the back splash, or taped to the inside side wall of the range if you remove the lower drawer. That all being said, first check to see if the start or stop time knobs on the timer have been pushed in (and possibly turned). If the clock runs, it will clear this out within 12 hours, but on these old ranges often times the clock no longer runs. Make sure these knobs are turned until they have "popped" out or you won't get the necessary voltage where you need it. Secondly, when a bake element burns out, it can cause damage to the electrical contacts in the oven selector switch (part number WB22X5122 ) which can be tested with an ohm meter if you can find the electrical diagram. Also, the oven thermostat (part number WB21X5320 ) can be damaged in the same way. Unfortunately, these parts for these old units are not very cheap.
The little bit of heat you are getting in your oven now is most likely only from the 120 volts going to the broiler element when in Bake. During Bake, your bake element should get 240 volts (until thermostat is satisfied). Setting to Broil should give 240 to the broil element.
