Oven popped and smoked

I was heating up the bottom oven and then there was this popping sound and all the power in the house went out and the top oven was smoking with an electrical smell. We had to flip the main power switch to get the power on and then we shut the power off to the oven and called GE to come and service it but they won't be here till Monday. What could have caused this and is the electrical system safe with no chance of fire to the house. I am very concerned why this happend.

Seatie, as long as you have the breaker off to the oven you should be o.k. Sounds like something shorted to the oven cabinet. It could be the terminal connection on the heating element itself. The main board could of shorted out. Without being there it's hard to tell, but you will be fine until GE arrives as long as the breaker to the oven is off. Catriver.

Heard popping sound in top than bottom.Now they won't heat

Have you looked at the top and bottom elements? If they show a small 'bubble', in the element, its burnt out. Easy fix.

I was just preheating my GE JT950 oven and there was a loud "pop" sound from the top fan, and then smoke emanated from the oven. The circuit breaker in the home is fine, as no fuses were blown. Any advice

bake element do pop when they burn out and some will act like a sparkler and burn and burn .. I would look for a bad spot in the element of the oven that you wer heating . mm

I lifted up the heating element on the bottom on the oven to clean up a spill, I heard a pop and the power to the oven went out.

you shorted out the leads on the oven case when you lifted the element, even though the element is off there is power to one side of the incoming element

Oven will not heat

Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.
