Home Experienced Partial Phasing - GE Spectra Profile Oven Not Working
Model Number: JBP48CB2CC Brand:
5 - 10 years
About four months ago my seven year old home experienced partial phasing on the electric company's side of the meter. The biggest damage in my home was to my GE Spectra oven/range. All four burners work, the oven light works, however, the control panel is blank and therefore the oven doesn't work. Not a problem during the summer time but its getting cooler and so now I need to address this problem.
About a month ago, we called an appliance tech regarding this problem and they said it would be something like $200 for the part and probably another $100+ for labor and recommended just buying a new stand-alone range. I notice on your site that the computer brain for this oven is about $100. All my other burners are working and the electrician who made the other repairs in my home after the partial phasing said everything looked fine otherwise on the oven. The electrician said its usually the oven control panel which goes bad with partial phasing. It looks like it could be a good investment to spend the $100 and renew the oven control unit and get full use of the range back.
I have two questions: (1) What else on the GE Profile range could be broke to cause this problem? (2) After removing the plug on the range, I backed the unit away from the wall, and removed the back panel to see the oven control unit. I noticed a warning on the transformer on the back of the oven control unit. Do I need to be worried about shock even if I unplug the 240V power?
