    Range - 12-Hour Automatic Oven Shut-Off

    The 12-hour automatic oven shut-off
    provides peace-of-mind and energy savings if the oven is accidently
    left on. The oven automatically shuts off after 12 hours. The 12 hour
    time was chosen because it allows through the night baking and is not
    too long for the oven to stay on.

    "QS" - "QuickSet"

    Note: The twelve-hour automatic oven shut-off is offered on QS-II and QS-III models.
    As of 1995 some ERC II's (QS-IV's) have the 12 hr shut off.

    12-hour shut off is offered on all SmartSet Control models.

    Effective 7/97 all Free standing electric ranges produced 7/97 and
    later with QS-IV and V will now have the 12- hour automatic shut off
    and the override feature.

    Please consult the Owner's Manual for model specific information.
    Download a copy of the Owner's Manual and/or Installation Instructions.

    Override for the Twelve Hour Shut Off.

    Effective 5/98 all Freestanding gas ranges with QS-IV and QS-V will also have the override feature.

    Models include: JGBP90mea, JGBP86, JGBP85, JGBP79AEA/BEA/WEA and JGBP35BEA/WEA/AEA.

    Note: Any free standing gas range with
    QS-IV or V does not have the override feature if manufactured prior to

    • QS-II and QS-III models produced 4/96 and later can "override"
      the twelve hour shut-off. (Both gas and electric)

    • All Smartset Controls have the Override feature.

    • Effective 7/97, Free standing electric ranges produced 7/97 and later
      with QS-IV and V will have the override feature. Models include:
      JBP79WY/BY/AY, JB940WY/AY/BY, JB960WY/AY/BY.

    Note: To turn override on or off press
    the minute slew pads for 4 seconds until the word off or on appears.
    The oven must NOT be operating to do this.

Turn on broiler, select hi or lo, wait, broiler won't light, no gas smell inside oven either so gas is not even flowing to the broiler element. What's wrong?

I hate to ask the obvious, but have you verified that the gas is turned on? If your main gas shutoff valve is outside, someone may have turned the valve off.... If you have other gas appliances, do they work OK? Valves can be different, but usually a valve is "on" when the handle parallels the pipe, and "off" when the handle is turned cross-wise to the pipe.

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F7 on your GE means that the keypad is shorted or stuck and to resolve this issue you’ll have to replace the Electronic Range control (ERC).Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

GE Profile gas range - Model Number removed by previous owners. Black slide in range with warming drawer - 5-10 years old. Digital oven controls on left side Broil and Bake functions are reversed. When...

Unplug the range.
I would open the control console and locate the BAKE/BROIL terminals on the Oven control. I would reverse the wires,plug the range in and try again.
Sounds to me like someone has changed out a part and wired it wrong.
