Resolved Question:

I have a Model JBS27 Range. The top element of the oven does not work in the Bake cycle. It does come on to broil. Is there something I need to adjust or do I need service?

gst85 :

hello,are you only having problems with one element

Customer:

Yes, the bottom element seems to work fine.

gst85 :

ok except the broil?

gst85 :

hi are you still there

Customer:

Isn't the top element supposed to heat as well as the bottom one when baking to have even temperature? Everything I bake is burning on the bottom and not browning on top. Nothing is coming out correctly. This oven came with my new manufactured home that I moved in to about 16 months ago and I haven't baked much since.

gst85 :

ok in this case in can be your element that is bad.or your oven control board

Customer:

So either way I need to schedule service?

gst85 :

i would suggest that you do have an actual tech on site to test the element with a voltmeter.as well as the control board

gst85 :

do you have any questions for me

Customer:

I guess not.

gst85 :

good luck to you.pressing accept pays me

gst85 :

have a great night
