How do I replace the hidden element on a GE Profile JCB968SJ1SS range

Posted by on

  • benoitr1 May 28, 2011

    I have a GE Profile JCB968SJ1SS but this procedure probably applies to the majority of GE Profile ranges with a hidden bake (the hidden element is exactly the same as earlier models). Replacement is done by removing the left side panel of the range.

    - Open oven door and remove the hex screws under the range cooktop, raise and hold in place (or remove) the cooktop. It is not necessary to remove the range door but if you want to see your owner’s manual.
    - Remove screws along top of left side panel.
    - Remove screws from the rear of the side panel.
    - Remove utility drawer at bottom of range and from the inside remove the hidden hex screw on lower left side (accessible through a hole in left leg in my case).
    - The middle and upper parts of the front side panel are held in place by gommets and the whole side panel is removed by lifting it up about an inch (pull the rear of the panel out about an inch to clear the console, grasp the front and rear portion of the side panel, lift up and pull the panel towards you to disengage gommets).
    - The baking element is in the lower part protected by insulation and a heat shield.
    - Disconnect the two wires from the bake element and tuck away, remove left hex screw holding the ground wire and heat shield to frame, remove right hex screw holding heat shield to frame.
    - Lift up heat shield AND insulation as high up as you can and hold in place with tape (no need to remove upper clips holding heat shield). I also suggest taping the sharp lower edge of the heat shield to avoid cutting yourself while working,
    - You will need to flatten and tuck some of the bottom insulation under the bottom panel holding the baking element to easily access the baking element.
    - Remove the left hex screw holding the other end of the ground wire and the bake element to the range frame (it is extremely important when reassembling that the ground and bake element screw tightly to the frame – you may have to use a longer hex screw if the element does not snug in exactly).
    - Remove the right hex screw holding the element retainer to the bake element.
    - Pry out the element retainer from it’s left side using a flat screw driver and slide left (the right side of the retainer is simply inserted in the frame with a small tongue).
    - Remove and replace baking element (you may have to exert some force to do this).
    - Reassemble

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.

GE Profile JT912 keep tripping circuit breaker

see this steps and fix it. God bless you

. Top element
If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

2. Infinite switch
Another reason, why the element would not start, might be a defective infinite switch (located behind the control panel, with the burner knob on its shaft). Replace the switch if found defective.

I was heating my electric oven when one of the filaments popped and stopped glowing. now the oven won't get hot (enough) and i want to know if i can replace it myself or if i have to wait for my lazy...

You can DIY. The element will be about $40.00. Turn the power off to the range. Unscrew the element and pull it out carefully. Remove the wires. Reverse this order to re-install the new element.
Turn the range back on and bake me a cake.

Radiant heating elements

Check the element with an OHM meter.

This is not rocket science and an OHM meter can be used for many things. Any good appliance parts place, even Wal-Mart will have a meter which can be set to test AC/DC, OHM's etc. Set the meter on OHM setting and touch the two leads on the meter together, you will see the meter arm move. This is simply a test for continuity. Now take the element out of the Range, touch one lead to one end of the element and the other lead to the other end. If you do not get any reading then there is a break inside the element and must be replaced. If you get any reading at all then the element is good and the eye switch must be replaced.

There are some parts which require knowing how many OHM's but in this case you just need to check for a break inside the element (continuity).

You can check an extension cord this way or set it on the volts setting and check batteries. all kinds of fun.

Self-clean not cleaning

I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
