GE wall oven JKP14WP3WG does not heat for bake or broil. When pushing button to either bake or broil, and selecting a temperature, "bake or broil" word appears followed shortly by 'on'. Neither element heats, and after about 20 seconds "bake or broil" word as well as 'on' turn off. Initially and stupidly without turning off power at the circuit breaker, and thinking there would be no power to the heating elements, I removed the broiler element, BUT in doing so touched one end of it to the side of the oven. SPARKS! Then the circuit breaker tripped and I survived!
Question 1. Should there have been power to the element? If not, what could this indicate?
Subsequently, I've confirmed correct ohm reading for the buttons on the face panel. They seem to be fine.
Question 2. There is not much more to the oven than the 'control board'. There are actually two boards in the same housing. One is WB27K5123 that has the clock, etc. Don't know number of the other board behind it...... or perhaps they are sold as a single unit. Could this be faulty, and keeping power to the elements?
For the answer to your first question about whether there should be power at the element. There will always be 120 vac to the element as the L2 will go directly to the elements. As for the issue with the unit, this will be a clock assembly issue and both control boards are a single unit which is part number WB44K5013.
