US Patent:
7041940, May 9, 2006
Filed:
Mar 28, 2003
Appl. No.:
10/402512
Inventors:
Stephen Michael Bakanowski - Louisville KY,
David Laurence Kinny - Louisville KY,
Lawrence Michael Portaro - Louisville KY,
Timothy Francis Powell - Mentor OH,
Mark Patrick Schoenegge - Prospect KY,
Joshua Stephen Wiseman - Elizabethtown KY,
Charles Ray Smith - Shelbyville KY,
Cecilia Maria Blanchard - Louisville KY,
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Schenectady NY
International Classification:
H05B 1/02
US Classification:
219412, 219395, 219485, 219497, 219486
Abstract:
A cooking platform includes at least one surface heating element having a first power consumption level and an oven located under the surface heating element. The oven includes a first heating element having a second power consumption level and a second heating element having a third power consumption level. The second heating element has at least two heating sub-elements. One of the two heating sub-elements is configured to be deenergized when a sum of the first, second, and third power consumption levels exceeds a power consumption limit of the cooking platform.

Dynamic Bottom Feed For Microwave Ovens

View page
US Patent:
44645546, Aug 7, 1984
Filed:
Aug 25, 1982
Appl. No.:
6/411153
Inventors:
Stephen M. Bakanowski - Louisville KY
Matthew S. Miller - Louisville KY
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Louisville KY
International Classification:
H05B 906
US Classification:
219 1055F
Abstract:
An excitation system for a microwave cooking appliance includes a waveguide along one wall arranged to support a standing wave therein, with an array of apertures spaced along the length of the waveguide to couple energy from the waveguide to the cooking cavity. A phase shifting device periodically shifts the phase of the standing wave between a first phase relationship and a second phase relationship. The array of radiating apertures is configured to support a first and a second substantially stationary radiating pattern when the first and second phase relationships, respectively, are established for the standing wave in the waveguide. Each radiating pattern at the cooking plane has regions of relatively high energy density interspersed wth regions of relatively low energy density, with the high energy regions of one pattern overlying low energy regions of the other, such that by periodically switching between patterns the uniformity of the time-averaged energy density at the cooking plane is enhanced.

Oven With Improved Self-Cleaning Cycle

View page
US Patent:
55346782, Jul 9, 1996
Filed:
Nov 12, 1993
Appl. No.:
8/151539
Inventors:
Patrick J. Bowles - Louisville KY
Stephen M. Bakanowski - Louisville KY
Michael T. Beverle - Louisville KY
Robert V. Chou - Louisville KY
John C. Reiche - Louisville KY
Nayson N. Khoshnood - Chattanooga TN
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Louisville KY
International Classification:
A21B 102
US Classification:
219396
Abstract:
A pyrolytically cleaned oven includes an upper broil element and a lower bake element, the broil element is energized until the oven temperature reaches a trigger temperature, well below the glass transition temperature point of the oven porcelain enamel; then the bake and broil elements are alternately energized in a cyclical manner until an off temperature, somewhat above the trigger temperature but still below the transition temperature, is reached. Thereafter one or both of the elements are cycled to maintain the temperature with a range between the off temperature and a lower on temperature, also within the effective self cleaning range.

Method For Testing The Operability Of A Refrigerant System

View page
US Patent:
48115673, Mar 14, 1989
Filed:
Mar 3, 1988
Appl. No.:
7/163844
Inventors:
Stephen M. Bakanowski - Louisville KY
William H. Mapes - Louisville KY
Assignee:
General Electric Company - Louisville KY
International Classification:
G01M 1900
US Classification:
62129
Abstract:
A refrigerant system for a household refrigerator has its operability tested after assembly of the refrigerant system with a refrigerator cabinet. A rotary compressor of the refrigerant system is preheated, preferably by applying heat to its stator through a low AC voltage, for a predetermined period of time prior to activation of the rotary compressor. After the rotary compressor is activated, the temperature of one of the serially connected coils of the evaporator remote from the first coil is determined. If the coil temperature is within a predetermined range, this indicates the proper operability of the refrigerant system. Power consumption can be measured in conjuction with the temperature so that a significant increase or decrease in power consumption would indicate a defective refrigerant system notwithstanding the coil temperature being satisfactory.
