Customer Question

I have a ge stove /oven Jbp76gv1ww. The bake element was t heating up but everything else seems ok, it seems to click a lot and never got up to the right temp. I replaced the baking heating element and still not fixed , when I test both the new and old heating element for continuity, and they both are good. So it's not the heating spent, what is it, the controller?

Have you checked to see if you have 220 volts going to the element with a meter?

Nope, frankly that big plug spooks me , so i try not to mess around with it, walk me yhrough it please.
Expert:  Chas replied 1 year ago.

Don't blame you, easiest way, turn off power to the unit, take the wires coming from the element, hook the probes on it, and make sure they do not ground out, the turn on the power and start a bake cycle and see if it shows 220 to 240 volts there.

I gotta get going. How can we pick this up tomorrow?
Expert:  Chas replied 1 year ago.

You have a bad oven control, even though the broiler works, the relay that controls the bake feature has failed, also the part is no longer available for your unit, unless you can find a replacement on EBAY that someone is selling..
