Customer Question

I have an old GE electric wall oven (1988). Model #JKP62GOK3. The oven bake element recently broke. I have replaced the element with a new element. The element works but never gets hot enough. It never glows red. What other issue may I have with this unit that could have happened when the element went out?

If the element was replaced, unfortunately the only possibility that would stop the element from heating up is the thermostat itself. When an element breaks it shorts out the contact of the thermostat. Unfortunately the thermostat is no longer made on such an old oven so it may be time for a new oven if you can't locate the thermostat.
