Top oven element won't cut off from the oven control knob. Still burns at the off position.
If the broil element will not shut off even with the unit being in the off position, then this would be a faulty electronic control board WB27X10311 which would need to be replaced.
Where do you find the model on a G E spectra range/stove?
If there is a storage drawer, open the drawer and look on the frame of the unit around the drawer opening. Also check when you open the oven door, on the frame near the hinges. The last place would be on a tag on the inside of the oven.
My broiler stop working first and then the oven stopped heating a week or so later. When you try to put it on, I hear a clicking sound.
Answer Hello Dorothy. You will need to test for power to the bake element from the clock. If there is not 240 volts at the element, and the clock is not putting out 120 to the element, you will need to order and replace the clock in the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
My troubles started with the lower baking element not working, the broiler would work, and the range top would as well. I ordered a new lower element, and installed it, but it did not work and now I have noticed that the range no longer works nor does the broiler. I have ohm tested both the lower baking elements, the new and the old and the tested good. Not sure what to trouble shoot from hear, any help would be greatly appreciated. Sure if this has any bearing but this is a glass top oven/range. Thank you in advance for any assistance.
Answer Hello Sean,
You will want to do a voltage check at the control board to make sure that you are getting power to elements. If you check from L1 to bake with unit set for bake you should have 240vac. If you check from L1 to Broil with set to broil you will also have 240vac. If you do not have 240vac on either test then you need to replace the main control board. You will also want to check the terminal block across L1 to L2 to make sure that you have 240 volts. You can test each leg by checking L1 to ground and L2 to ground. There should be 120 vac on each of these legs. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

I changed the baking element - failed to unplug and shorted the oven. Checked every breaker and still no power to the oven. Do I need a new electronic controller?
Answer Hello Joe,
If you do not have a display on the clock then the control board has failed. If you have display then you will want to check to make sure that you have 240 vac to L1 and bake and also L1 and broil with unit off. If there is not 240 vac present then you are loosing one side of your power supply. You would then want to check all your wiring to ensure that there is no broken or damaged wires. If there is 240vac to the control board but oven still will not turn on then you need new control board.WB27X10311 You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3.

Oven was in use. The circuit board that showes time clock started blinking and went dark. When we tried to reset the clock it will blind couple of times and go black. Now it would not come on at all. The oven also does not work. Top burners work fine. How can we repair this? Do you thind the Control Board is bad? Please help.
Answer Hi. This is the first place to start since you no longer have oven power and a visible screen. If you have verified power to the board and no output on command then the relays that close to send power to the bake & broil element are bad. Ohm the bake element and the broil for resistance and not an open. Ohm one element lead to the elemt. sheathing itself one at a time for shorts. The control board is part # WB27X10311. The bake element is part # WB44X5082. The broil element is part # WB44X173. Thank You.
I need the wiring diagram as the rest did. Any way to get it?
Answer Hello Matt. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. Thank you. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
