Hicarywhite981,

If you noticed tiny sparks along the bake element, it may be time to replace it with new one. Here are some steps that you may apply on how to replace a bake element in an Electric oven. Please follow the procedures below.

Remember: Before attempting any repair, please remember your safety. Unplug the power of the oven from the power outlet or turn the breaker off.

1. First, remove the racks from the inside of the oven.

2. If you want to remove the oven door so it will make you comfortable, just open it and slide it off the arms which hold it in place.

3. Now find the bake element. Sometimes it is located on the bottom of oven's interior. It resembles a metal tube that's been bent into a square shape.
--> please make sure that the oven is completely cool or has not been used in a while.

4. You can use a flashlight if its quite dark inside to locate the interior where the bake element is connected to the oven wall.

5. Once you locate the element, you will noticed that it has 2 screws holing the bake element in place. Remove the screws and ensure to put them in a place that you will not gonna lose them.

6. Now, pull the bake element out of the oven wall. There will be a wires attached to each leg of the bake element. Don't pull to hard, once you have about 5 - 6 inches of wire exposed, put a piece of electrical tape over it so it will keep the wire from falling back inside the hole.

7. Remove the screws and separate the wires from the bake element.

Putting the new bake element

1. Connect the wires to the new bake element the same way as you removed the old one. Just connect the wires to each leg with the screws. Wrap a layer of white fiberglass tape around the terminals.

2. Push the wires back inside the hole until the bake element is put back in position. Secure the new element in place using the screws.

3. Time to test the new element. Turn on the oven you should see the bake element flare up. If you notice some smoke coming off the element as it heats up, don't worry, these are just oils burning off of it. The smoke will stop after few seconds.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Oven will not bake correctly when set to bake only the top element comes on


The problem is likely one of two things: Either the lower burner is shot and should be replaced, or there is a defect in the switch. The burner is the more likely problem if the upper burner is still working. If the lower burner works on any of the other settings it could be the switch, which would need to be replaced.

Pleb30s8ccc baking heating element does not work. I checked the voltage at the terminals and am not getting a reading while the broiler gets a reading. What do I do next?


Hi,

You will have to trace the wires back from the terminals to the switch or thermostat where they come from. The heating element will have its own thermostat & this is the most probable cause for the power not reaching the element. It will then have to be replaced.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.

Best wishes,

My old GE oven (JSP38G052BG) won't bake or broil. It start then stop after 1 or 2 minutes. The heating elements get worm. Can you help me please


Hello ediben11.

If your oven's bake or the broiler heating elements won't heat but the range burners still work;the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. So,make sure to check the clock buttons and the knobs are set properly.
*If your clock has a knob that says "push for manual" then push the knob in after that, try the baking and broiling elements again.

*If it still does not work properly, you may have a defect in the thermostat/selector switch/common wiring.

*If the oven does not have a separate bake or broil selector switch; then the thermostat is probably the problem. It is not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Hope this helps.

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the Magnetron, or Power Diode has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Wont heat


Hi!

Here are two instances when this happens---
  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
If you find this solution helpful then do rate this solution.

Thanks

Convection baking only one one side


I'm not familiar with this specific model, but I would assume it has two convection heating elments and one elment is burned out or there is a problem in one side of the wiring that powers the convection elements.
