Question and Answers

Q:

GE JT950 Electric Double wall oven with erratic temperature. Top and Bottom JT950W0A3WW

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that both upper and lower oven temperatures are not accurate or consistent. I know how frustrating that is.

The oven temperature sensors and the electronic control board are what regulate the temps. I agree with your assumption that the sensors are working, as it would be very unlikely that the sensors both failed at the same time. The clicking you hear behind the control panel also leads me to suspect that it's a board issue and not the sensors. 

To be sure, you could pull the sensors and test them for resistance. At room temperature, they should measure at about 1100 ohms. If they check out, the electronic control board (part WB27T10287) would need replacement.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Josh_S thanks for the response :) Some additional information. I picked this oven up used and installed it a week ago. They had taken this oven out as part of a remodel and from a fit perspective it matched the GE that I had in my house that had a bottom oven that was not working at all. I still have that oven. For what it is worth I contacted the person I bought it from and discussed the issue that I was having with the temperature. She said they did not have this issue, and even had the oven tested as part of the home inspection. I point this out only because I am wondering before I order a new control board is there something that could have come lose during the move; or could one of the hard wired electrical connections be lose.

For what it's worth, that would be an extremely difficult issue for a home inspector to pick up on during a home inspection. They would physically need to do what you did to identify the issue, which I guarantee they are not thorough.

You can trace the wiring from the sensors to the board to make sure there are no shorts to ground, but usually if that's the case, there is an issue with a runaway temperature, which doesn't sound to be the case. This type of issue typically points to a shorted relay on the board, which is not fixable. A replacement would normally solve the issue unless the sensors are defective. Testing them for the resistance would confirm.
