Question about GE JBS55 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

When our family returned from out of town, we had no heat. I plugged in a small space heater close to the stove to help heat the kitchen. A bit later, I started to make toast and a breaker flipped. Flipped the breaker back on... everything was back in order (so it seemed). It wasn't until later when I went to turn on the stove top to cook that I found the stove and oven would not heat. All lights (clock and element lights) work but the stove top and oven will not heat. I've tried re-tripping the breaker but that doesn't resolve anything. Any suggestions?

Power must be reaching the stove for the lights to work so it would seem something has gone wrong inside the stove. Only exposing the internal connections and testing the circuits will trace the fault.

SOURCE: Wall Oven No Power

yes the oven thermal fuse blew when the fan went off its also called a tco switch if you pull out the oven and take the top off there will be a tech sheet there that will give the location of the tco some are on top some are on back this can also happen if the oven is too tight in the cabinet not enough room around it to let the heat dissipate its a round metal disc with two wires on it

SOURCE: PF on Whirlpool super capacity 465 electric Stove Model RF366PXGW2

PF = Power Failure. Sounds like you have a bad electrical connection. With your breaker off, check that the connections from the cord to the range are all good and tight. Next, check the receptacle where the cord plugs in. Remove the cover and check the connections there as well. Examine the power cord also. There could even be a poor connection at the breaker box (at the circuit breaker or the neutral buss bar) but not as likely, as your problem appeared when you moved your range.

SOURCE: Oven will not heat

Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.

Alternative Heating Pellet Stoves and Pellet Inserts


Pellet stoves usually use wood pellets as their primary heat source. A pellet stove is defined as a stove that burns either compressed wood or biomass pellets to make heat to warm a home or other space.

Pellet stoves come as either free-standing units or fireplace pellet inserts which can be vented into an existing chimney. As an insert, you are able to replace your wood burning stove with this efficient and cost effect stove. Inserts also give the homeowner more of the look of a fireplace than that of a pellet stove. Pellet inserts can also be a great alternative for people who have busy lifestyles and are looking to get the beauty of a fire but prefer a cleaner burning renewable heat source.

Pellet stoves are freestanding structures that can give you the feeling that an old pot bellied stove did, tucked into a corner of a living room, den, or kitchen. Either the pellet inserts or freestanding stoves are a great alternative heating solution for keeping a house warm during the winter.

Many stove manufacturers recommend the using a corn and pellet mixture, but some are UL listed for many fuels other than pellets. These can include wheat, corn, sunflower seeds, and cherry pits.

Pellet stoves are a bit more efficient, burn cleaner, and are easier to use than conventional wood burning stoves. Pellet stoves often look very similar to wood stoves or fireplace inserts, however the similarities end there.

If you are considering burning alternative fuels then you will want to look into a pellet stove as a great way to heat your home. Pellet stoves and pellet insets have many great advantages over regular wood stoves that make them a practical heat for busy lifestyles.

Oven stopped working


I had that problem also I have a maytag thoe. I was told ( by maytag )not to have the stove to close to the wall because the panel gets to hot and shuts down everything.Try pulling the stove a little bit away from the wall to let the heat out.Also check to see if the outlet to the stove has power to it.Hope this somewhat helps.

Power out on Whirlpool over-the-stove microwave


Yes, There are fuses inside the keyboard panel. I would have to take a look at the manual for the specific model you have to identify the easiest way to check the fuse.
Before you go that far check above the hood and see if you can locate the plug end of the microwave. Most installations have a dedicated receptacle above the exhaust vent and microwave. It is usually a space too small for good storage so most housewives store small items and cookbooks in this space. It is usually the culprit for a microwave suddenly going out without someone placing metal inside the oven and heating it.
Heating a metal object or operating a microwave for an extended time will usually blow the fuse.

Pressure cooker safety


From the point of view of the pressure cooker, there shouldn't be any problem at all provided you follow the pressure cooker instructions.

From the point of view of the stove, the only thing you might want to watch out for is point loading - some older pressure cookers can get a bit domed at the bottom. On a flat surfaced stove, this will concentrate all the weight of what is after all quite a heavy pot onto a small part of the stove top. If the bottom of the pressure cooker is still nice and flat, I don't see any problem.

Space heater will power up, but not start,


These fans have a safey feature (sensor) that shuts the heater off if it is tipped over. It sounds like this component is not functioning correctly - may be set wrong and will not allow the heater to turn on unless you shake it to reset the sensor. If it is still under warranty return heater, if not call Patton and ask for help.
