Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a GE Spectra Electric range/oven, the lower heating element burned out resulting in sparking and smoke. I took the element out and wrapped the element wiring leads in electrical tape. When I tried to reset the breaker it keeps popping off. I unplugged the oven and was able to rest the breaker. Do I have to have a new element installed before the range will not trip the breaker and start working again? Is there a possible problem in the oven somewhere else? Why would the breaker not reset with the oven plugged in?

It is most likely the pop came from a relay on the control board if the elements checked ok but not getting power to them. This is fairly common on fridgidaire ranges. Replace the oven control. Usually the control overlay is sold as a separate piece.

You need a new mother-board.
I had the same issue, it overheated my kitchen in a matter of minutes. If I didn't turn off the circuit-breaker, I probably would have had a fire - the heat being emitted was intense. The cost is running around $300. with tax and delivery. I'm not sure if I want to repair or purchase a new oven.

If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

HI, You will need to change the burner switch. When the element shorted, it took out the switch also. If you need help with part#, please let me know

Its 220 volts and ge only turns of one leg of the 220 vols so you always have a hot side NEVER work on any thing thats still pluged in.
You could have killed yourself if you touched graond while you pushe the hot conecter on to the burner. Try reseting your house bracker If that don't work Look a the relays and wiring in the stove.
