That's not a model number, read it from the model number tag on the oven.

Click here: Appliance Parts

Then you will see a link that says: How to find a model number.

Yikes, without the model number we are dead in the water.

Its best to have a GE tech come out then to see what's going on, you didn't have the house inspected before you bought it? They should of checked to make sure the wall oven worked.

If the oven is electric and not gas you could turn the breaker off to your wall oven and ohm test the bake element:

It did work when we moved in. It just stopped yesterday. The only other number on a paper is a serial number FL626162Q. Is there a reset button on the back of the unit?
Could this be the model JKP86SOHSS?

That number JKP86SOHSS says microwave oven combo. Is this a microwave oven combo?

Ok Thanks, You will need a multimeter. Make sure you volt test the incoming power to make sure you are getting 240 volts at the terminal block where your main power comes into the oven, RED and BLACK are HOT, when you put your meter probes on them your meter should read 240 volts.

You do have what looks to be one or two limit switches in the back of your oven, it shows them as #157 in your parts diagram here:

You'll need to pull your oven out from the wall, then take off the back access panel, then take off the wires to them, and use your multimeter to ohm them for continuity. Watch the video below.

You may need to get someone to help you pull it out as wall ovens are very heavy to pull out by yourself.

Unplug or turn the breaker off to your oven first before pulling the oven out and testing those safety thermal limit switches!


If the one or two limit switches ohm test fine, Then what I'd do next is ohm test the bake element to see if its good. Remember to make sure NO POWER is coming into the oven when ohm testing. You can ohm test the bake element from the back after you remove it from the wall, like when you ohm test the limit switches. You will see the two bake element terminals towards the bottom in the back. Remove the wires from it too before ohm testing it, make sure your meter is set on the lowest ohms of resistance.

Here's the bake element for your model:
WB44T10031 Bake Element


If the bake element ohm tests good, then that indicates your oven control board is bad.

Here's the oven control board for your model you can order here:
GE WB27T10500 Oven Control


Let us know what you find.
