GE Electric Range JBS27 - Display dead/burners won't stay on
« on: December 29, 2011, 05:32:01 AM »
I have a GE Free-standing Electric Range (JBS27) with some problems. The burners don't work and the clock display won't stay set. But the whole range now has some odd behaviors..

1 - The clock display shows nothing until you turn one of the knobs for a burner or the oven
2 - When a knob is turned on, the electrical system (the clock and oven light) will work, but will immediately shut off when a knob is turned off
3 - When the oven knob is turned, the clock display flickers
4 - The burners and the oven don't get hot (nothing)

I've checked that the oven is plugged in. The breaker appears to be fine (didn't trip) but I reset it anyway. All of the burners are plugged into their receptacles snuggly. I even reoriented them all in their sockets after spraying contact cleaner in them. This happened all of a sudden with no apparent power failures in my home. The range is receiving power, because the clock light and oven light will turn on if I turn a knob, but for some reason the control system (maybe ?) is not sending power to the burners or the oven. Any thoughts?

sounds to me you have a bad wire somewhere, need to pull range , take back panel off, & look around terminal block where cord hooks to, may be a broken or burnt wire.make sure you unplug range. also sounds like you need a new clock # AP3427505.  for model # JBS27WH2WW.

Open neutral, that is the most common thing when that happens and yes it may have taken out the clock.

maybe not...
first, fix the Neutral connection on the back of the Range, or at the Wall Outlet
