Question about GE Profile Spectra JBP90SFSS Electric Kitchen Range

Replaced bake element in JBP90SFSS and now oven not working properly

The lower bake element in my oven cracked and so I had to replace it. After replacing I started my oven and it came up to temperature (or so it said on the display) but the element continued to glow as if it was still heating. I tried to turn the oven off but it continued to glow. Ultimately I had to unplug the stove for fear that something would happen. Please advise

Sometimes when an element opens, there is significant current to cause the control relays to arc and weld together causing them to act as a closed switch no matter what state the control tells them to be in. This will have to be checked at the control board using a multimeter.

There is significant voltage and current involved in this circuit and testing is best left to a professional.

The back of the range will have to be removed to check the circuit for faults.

Oven heats slowly, bake element has been replaced


Yes, it is very possible that when the bake element burned out, it may have shorted out to the case of the oven, and burned up the relay on the control board. If you have a voltmeter (and feel comfortable in doing this), remove the back of the oven, and measure the voltage across the bake elements when you set the oven to some bake temperature. Be careful, you are dealing with 240 volts AC here! IF you don't have any voltage anywhere near 240 V while on bake, then you probably have a bad electronic oven control. If you have just 120 volts, then check your voltage at your power cord or (better) at the junction box at the back of the range. You should have 120 volts from the center (white or green) wire to either the red or black wire; and 240 volts from the red to the black wire. Now IF you have 240 volts across the terminals of the bake element, then you may have gotten the wrong bake element (wrong wattage - lower watts than the original). Maybe you ordered the wrong one, or maybe they put the wrong one in the box.

Bottom Baking element not working


dmiller58
If all your connections are solid then your controller is defective. Did you get any faults before changing the element? Does the broil (one at the top of the oven) work?

I have a Kenmore Stove and the bottom (bake) element does not heat up. The top Element is fine. I have replaced the bottom element and checked the fuses and they seem fine. Could it be a control panel that...


You could very well have an Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board problem. There two separate circuits that control the oven BAKE and BROIL functions. If you have replaced the BAKE element, and have ensured it connected properly, the only other component that controls that function, is the EOC. If you post back with your complete model number, I can double check to make sure. The model number will be located on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door opening or lower drawer opening. The reason I need to confirm is because some ranges have a separate relay control board.

What do you mean by, "properly"?
Is it heating or not at all?
Is it not hot enough, or too hot?
Upper element is for broil. It may come on briefly during bake, but usually at half power. It doesn't glow red.
Does the bottom element glow red? If not, inspect lower element, which is the bake element, for pits and rough spots. These may be signs of failure.
UNPLUG STOVE!! Remove bake element and check for continuity. If it shows open, replace. You can probably take to parts store and they can test it for you.

Power to that element comes directly from the oven control. If you have replaced the element and all wiring is ok then the control is bad even if you hear it clicking. The part # is 74006213 and cost is $298.99 @ http://www3.sears.com/.
Part # for http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=48695 is AP377973 and their price is $230.53.
