Question and Answers

Q:

GE Range

A:

A non working Oven is not something any of us want to see. If you are technically handy, this is a good site to get instruction and fix some things yourself. If you do not feel confident doing your own repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the scheduler. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check the bottom links for some possibilities. Hope this is of help.

Thank you for your question on the bake and broil operation.

I have included a page from the mini manual for this range.

It states that the relay cycles the bake and broil elements alternately and that the bake a broil are never on at the same time.

The broil when cycled on would have 240 volts.

See the chart for the mini manual below.

Have you checked the broil element for resistance of about 25 ohms if it is good?

I you have the input voltage at the control board it controls when the broil element come on.

Please let me know what you have found, and we can continue our troubleshooting based on that.�

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Your diagnosis was exactly right. The old control, however, did send 240 volts to the bake unit & 120 volts to the broil unit anytime the bake cycle was used. Since the new control didn't do that, I was afraid the new control was defective. Thanks for the help & the diagram. Charles.

I can understand your concern but I can't say with any certainty if replacing the oven control will cause your oven to heat again or not. I do not have enough details in order to know if the broil element works or even if the oven ON light will come ON or not. If the oven ON light does not come on, and the surface elements will work then it's very possible to have a faulty oven control. The oven control may not even be programmed correctly causing the oven to not heat. If you do not have your owner's manual with directions, you can view or down load it from Manage My Life .

In order to diagnose the failure will require testing the voltage to the oven element when the Oven control is set to heat. The Oven element requires 220 volts in order to heat. NOTE: I do not recommend checking voltages unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
