Default range without bake element
Model Number: JBP21GV2   Brand: GE   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The baking element on my oven started glowing oddly tonight. I turned off the oven, but the element continued to glow. I finally unplugged the oven assuming (as I read somewhere on this forum), that there's still some current running through the element even though it's turned off. That stopped the glow. I've ordered the replacement element on appliancepartproos.com, but I don't have use of the range top with the unit unplugged. Is it OK to remove the old baking element, plug the oven back in, and use the range until I get the replacement part installed? I looked on the forum for an answer to this, but couldn't find it; sorry if this has already been answered. Thanks for this great site!

that there's still some current running through the element even though it's turned off.
You may have misunderstood the post. There may still be voltage not current. The voltage (120 volts) is measured with reference to Neutral/ground/unit's frame. But the oven elements do not use Neutral, they get power from L1 to L2 (240 volts.

Is it OK to remove the old baking element, plug the oven back in, and use the range until I get the replacement part installed?
You could pull the oven element and tape up the connectors so they cannot short to each other or the frame. You will need at least 5 layers of tape over the connectors. Make sure to clip something (clothespin etc.) onto the wires to make sure they do not disappear into the back of the stove. Something non conducting would be best.

Note: I did not recommend this because if someone accidentally turns the oven on, the tape will melt and you will have a huge arc & spark.


I do not know if just replacing the element is going to fix your problem, it depends on how it was glowing.
Sometimes the element can short to the feet, which are touching the oven case/frame which is Neutral. You then get that portion on the element heating.

Thanks for the prompt reply. How do I test to see if the element is shorting to the feet? Can I just replace the feet at the same time I[m replacing the element? Happy Holidays!

The feet are parts of the element
Part number: AP2031084

If you click on the picture then the picture of the full element you will see them attached to the front of the element.
