GE Baking element question
« on: December 15, 2013, 11:10:42 AM »
I have a pretty old GE Oven that the broiler seems to work but when baking seems to take too long to warm up. Says it is preheated but doesn't seem to feel that hot inside and I don't ever see baking element glow. I went to pull out the baking element to do a continuity test and when pulling the element out I noticed 2 wires were soldered to one side of the element and none were connected to the other. I don't know if this item was worked on by someone in the past. Is this a normal procedure or could possibly one of the wires broke off and are back in the insulation. I don't want to start taking everything apart to look for more wires if this is normal.  Of course this would mean a minimum of 3 wires and possibly 4 and I don't think that is normal but I have no idea.. The model number is JBP24BY2WH, I have had a problem finding any info on this model.

When I measure continuity I get around 23 ohms so I think this means the element itself is ok.

I would think you have a wire broken off as this bake unit should have a two screw to connect the wires to the bake element is that correct?And the one with two wires are together on one terminal is that correct.Yes 23 ohms is a good bake unit.
