Question about GE JBP65 Electric Kitchen Range
Sometimes during oven use the broiler will come on and stay on. Nothing will shut it off. Nothing has an effect on it other that hitting the breaker. This doesn't happen all the time but when it does you have to kill the breaker. There are no indicators lights at all, only a glowing broiler element. All the other elements will come on and go off normally when this is occurring. The breaker has to be off long enough for everything to cool down to room temp. Then things go back to normal. Can't seem to find a schematic anywhere to figure this out.
I would suspect that your broil relay on your Electronic Oven Control board is occasionally sticking. This can be a potential fire hazard if gone unchecked. Especially if this occurs randomly as you have mentioned. I would not feel safe about leaving your range plugged in while not at home, or while asleep. Most major appliances come equipped with schematic drawings and wiring diagrams as part of a tech sheet. One should be located either on the back of the range, or inside the console. The board, however is not normally a serviceable item and will probably have to be replaced. Just a heads up, the part number is 255451 and costs about $200. I hope you find this information helpful. Good luck to you and post back with any comments, questions, or concerns.
