Your Name: Catherine

Type of Appliance: Oven/Range/Stove

Brand: GE

Model Number: jb16

Your Precious Words:
The bake element on my oven completely fried. Got a new one, installed it, turned it on.flash! sizzle! SMOKE!

turned it off and went to meditate on the need for an oven.

Took the back off the stove (several days later, mediation takes time) and found the yellow wire going to the thermostat completely fried off.

Once again contemplated the need for baked food.

Can this be fixed (30 year old unit)? Should it? Is raw food really better for you anyway?
