Question about GE Profile JTP56 Electric Double Oven

1 Answer

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.

Dacor bottom oven not heating

I have a DACOR double electric oven model ECD230SCH. the top oven lower element went out 1 and 1/2 years ago, but the top element broiler works. Yesterday the bottom oven did the same thing- bottom element not working along with convection. Pulled off doors and cut breaker. Checked thermal switch on top off oven- closed good. Pull out element and Ohm'ed out- good. Now pulled over and out oven top panel to get to the control boards. Found a nice set of schematics for the over control boards and electronics. Sat down and pin-pointed both relays that supply power to upper and lower oven "lower" heating elements. these are on 2 different boards- upper over relays on bigger board on the left with the transformer. Lower oven on the right smaller board. Hardest pain in the rear was just getting the little plastic stand offs to push back through the board to get it off. Finally got it off and inspected board. Low and behold the relay I pin-pointed had a burn/open connection on the solder joint. Re-soldered tested oven and lower oven lower heat element works now! Went to the next board and got that off and same exact problem on the rely for the top oven lower element. Re-solder and test- good!! Put everything together and ran over to 350 on top and lower and back to normal. Wife very happy she did not have to pay a repair man big bucks to swap out the control boards- would have had to replace both.

I have a degree in electronic technology so as a technician for many years did low and high voltage component level repairs. But pretty easy and you can visually see the open solder joint on the back of the board at the relay leg.

Excessive smoke comes out from oven when cooking

hmmm sounds a bit strange is there anything at the bottom of your oven that has been spilled on it even on the heating coils? (if electric) (if gas there could be a very serious problem with the oven that needs fixing right away!)

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
