Question about Ovens

2 Answers

I have an old (don't know how old) General Electric P7 oven/range (electric) that has dual side by side ovens (the one on the left is a small oven, the one on the right is regular sized. It's been working great until now, but now the baking (bottom) elements on both ovens have quit working. What could be causing this? Is there a fuse? If so where? Also if it helps, the 4 top burners are operated by push buttons. Thanks! Jade Binder

    Thanks. The one on the left (the little one) also has top and bottom elements and bakes as well as broils. It is the same height as the larger oven but is narrower. Its bottom element quit working too. That's what I thought was odd - why the bottom elements in both ovens at the same time? Do you know if there is a manual out there for this oven?

Hello Jade Binder, Usually whenthe burners for your oven stops working it is a sign of quite a couple of things. If the elements are electric then there is a probability they just need to be replaced because elements usually have an expiry date after they have worked for quite a while they get replaced before they burst open. But if the other components of the unit still functions perfectly then most likely it is nothing to do with the control board. being bad. get an expert to check the elements in the oven they most likely are just due for replacement. Do keep me posted if you need further assistance.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

The small oven on the left is a broiler and the other is a regular oven.

It sounds like the elements have gone out and need to be replaced. There is nothing else that I can think of that would make them not work. The part number for the lower element is AP2634795. You can order the parts direct from GE.

There is no fuse that will help make the elements work again, sorry!

I can however give you instructions on how to replace the elements yourself if you want to save some money? I will also include a link that explains more about the installation at the bottom of this window.

  • 1

    Disconnect power to the oven.

  • 2

    Open the oven door. Remove the oven racks.

  • 3

    Unscrew the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the center of the broil element base, if replacing the broil heating element. Pull the oven sensor away from the wall, but do not disconnect the wires. If installing the bake element, skip this step.

  • 4

    Remove the mounting screws at the base of the element, securing the element to the rear wall. If you're removing the broil element, also remove the mounting screws from the roof of the oven, securing the element in place.

  • 5

    Pull the element away from the rear wall, pulling the wires with it.

  • 6

    Unclip the wires from the terminals on the rear of the old element and secure them to the terminals on the new element.

  • 7

    Tuck the wires back into the rear of the oven wall and align the mounting holes on the element base with the holes on the rear of the oven wall. Secure the new element in place using the mounting screws that you removed earlier. If you're installing a new broil element, replace the mounting screws in the oven roof to hold the element in place.

  • 8

    Place the oven sensor back into position, then secure it using the mounting screw if you're replacing the broil element. If you are replacing the bake element, skip this step.

  • 9

    Replace the oven racks, close the oven door, then restore power to the oven to complete the installation.

  • 1

    Faulty range/oven parts aren't the only worry a gas range owner has; the threat of carbon monoxide is very real and should be paid close attention to when doing repairs on the range.

    If your range or oven gives off soot, you definitely have a carbon monoxide problem. Soot is the result of inefficient or incomplete combustion. There are always elevated levels of carbon monoxide with soot production. Properly adjusted range/oven parts do not give off soot. You may have poorly adjusted gas pressure, the air shutter may need to be opened, or you may be supplying fuel the oven isn't designed to handle. Don't use natural gas in liquid propane stove or vice-versa.

    My oven when turned on goes to F1 and the heat is like broil...only the top burner comes on????


    Hello,Please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

    KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
    F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

    KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
    F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

    KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
    F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
    F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
    F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
    F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

    Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
    “9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

    KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
    F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
    Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

    Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

    Thanks

    GE P7 Wall oven had bad thermostat????


    IF YOUR HEATING ELEMENT IS GETTING ORANGE HOT, AND CYCLING, I WOULD SUSPECT THE THERMOSTAT TO BE THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND IT HARD TO FIND ONE THOUGH DUE TO ITS AGE.

    Whrilpool electric range-oven appears hotter on left side


    Hello
    Welcome to Fixya
    My name is Huum,

    This probably means you have a defective heating element that does not heat evenly through out the length of the element!
