When the oven was turned on the element burst into flame, and continued to slowly burn along the element, even after the oven switch was turned off. It wouldn't stop until I unpluged the stove. Are one of the element wires hot all the time? Even when the oven switch is turned off? Or does this indicate other problems?
Answer Wayne, Yes, the L2(red), 120 VAC power supply is constant to the bake and broil elements, as long as the power at the outlet is present. The L1(black) 120 VAC power supply is through the ERC/Clock relays. There are a couple of possibilities that occurred, the element WB44T10011 may have degraded collapsed and shorted to the chassis. There could have been some spillage in the oven that migrated through the carborundum coating of the element, causing it to flame up.
What is the proper lower heating element for my model range? If upper element is functioning and lower element is not, can I assume lower heating unit is the issue, or could it be something else. Hate to drop 50 bucks if that is not the issue...
You can test the oven bake element WB44X10013 for resistance to see if it has 17 ohms of resistance. The bake element should have resistance of around 17 ohms for being good. Also put the unit on bake and check from bake to L1 for 240 vac. If there is not 240 vac then the oven control is bad and would need to be replaced.
Was wondering if there is a different oven element for the top and bottom of the oven?
Answer Hello Andrea, Could you re-check that model number? I found model JBP35B0H2CT. It has a broil element WB44T10009 in the top of the oven and a bake element WB44T10011 in the bottom of the oven. Hope this helps!
Not sure which bake element I need...can you help?
The bake element part number for your range is WB44T10011.
