Question about GE JKP20 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

'79 GE oven lower bake coil not heating after replaced w/switch.

The problem started last week with the arcing of the lower baking coil of our July 1979 combination (micro & oven model J - KP97G serial MF980755M)GE oven... I replaced the same lower coil that I previously successfully replaced in 2001. Except this time, only the upper coil functions in the Bake mode although the oven Clean mode works great. I just replaced the oven switch WB22X5123 as recommended in lieu that there was no connection being made between the 2 'Bake' terminals and no visible wire connection problem was visible. I tested the new coil to the normal 17.8 ohms although the power across the lower coil terminals was only about 40 volts...The thermastat unit contacts looked ok and I cleaned the copper contacts. (just a note that we have not had a continuous red light on the bake light for some time and we have adjusted the oven temp dial to 50 degrees warmer than desired with success for years...) We would like to continue using our current oven for at least 5 years when we may replace some of our kitchen appliances. Please help. Thank You.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

If the element shorted out and burned you can go ahead and replace it. With your model number you can order another on line like sites like sears or buy it at a local appliance parts store. Here's a link to sears. sears parts

Is it easy to replace the lower element on a jtp 15 GE oven? While the wife was baking last week, the lowere element burned out. Was wondering if I could replace it myself


Easy replacement. Make sure to unplug power or shut off breaker. remove 1/4" hex screw on back of element. Pull off female terminals or some have screws. Install new element the same way.
