Good day all!,
My GE range this morning treated my daughter to a fireworks display as she tried to broil Facon (yes I mean turkey bacon, Facon). I assume the pork gods mustve been getting revenge on her for desicrating the altar of bacon, but thats another story. The broil element failed and despite our imediate switching to off, the arc maintained for longer than I ecpected.
I have killed the power at the breaker, and grabbed mod/ser numbers, and made a quik visual check, looks like the broil element is no longer an element. My question is what is the likelyhood of the switch or board to be also damaged? I'll not get to look carefully at it till at least tonight, unless I have to run a lot of HVAC calls tonight....


Oh its a :

corrected model number; it's JBP (as corrected), not JPB (as originally posted).

That which does not kill me only makes me stronger.....at this rate I'll be invincible by Tuesday!

Not uncommon for them to fail this way. While it's possible that something else may be bad, we must proceed in accordance with the 8th Law of the Prophecy, "Fix the obvious problems first."

With the 8th Law in the forefront of our consciousness, we proceed by replacing the obliterated broil element ==> http://www.repaircli...mber=JBP24BB4WH

Wouldn't it be simpler to just disconnect the fried element and connect your meter to the leads and see if you get 240v ?

Uh, yeah, just need to get time alone with it. 2 jobs makes for a busy man. If the other items were common I'd order them as a precaution. The rest is for fun Roughshod. <humor>

Volts are where expected, looks like the element will set this thing right, was ordered yesterday, so I expect the full recovery before the weekend!
