XL 44 Gas Range Oven temperature problem

My oven won't keep a constant temperature with significant temperature variations of more than 100 degrees during baking. It has had this problem since the first day.

    Do you think the timer would make the temp change? I am not using a timer when I bake, just turning it to the correct temperature and cooking.

Hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

How do I set the oven on100.


I'm guessing that you want your oven at 100 degrees for drying some food/herbs, or culturing homemade yoghurt. I do all of those, so know the temp range required; 95-110. Most ovens can't be set as low as 100, but the cool thing about a gas range is that the pilot light keeps the interior temperature close to that, and if you keep the oven interior light on, that helps. Get an oven thermometer, costs under $10, test oven temp. If your oven doesn't do it you can get a pizza stone or even a few bricks, preheat the oven to warm the stone/bricks on the bottom rack, turn oven off. Then put in your product of choice on top rack. Leave yoghurt in for 8 hours, leafy herbs (sage, thyme, oregano, etc) for 12 or more hours. If doing yoghurt, don't open door, consistent temp is important. If doing herbs, crack the oven door open slightly with a wooden spoon to allow moisture to escape, critical to drying. I hope this helps.

GE XL 44 oven will not come up to temperature. Oven lights but will not heat beyond 250 degrees.


Hello,

The most probable reason the oven isnt heating very well is because of a weak igniter,since that igniter is weak its having a hard time fully opening the gas valve so the flame is very small and thusly not producing much heat,by replacing the igniter the gas will flow properly and heat to a high tempature.

My gas oven will not heat up above 300 degrees and


You may have 2 problems.
One. The temperature sensor could be bad. You can remove the temperature sensor and check it with a ohm meter. It should read 1050 to 1150 ohms. If not. It is bad.
Two. The glowbar ignitor could be bad and not igniting the gas safety valve.Open the bottom drawer of the oven and set the oven to bake. The burner should light in 60 seconds or less. Re-light should be about 30 seconds or less.
If it takes longer the ignitor is bad.

Your oven temperature sensor must be replaced. It is located in the oven compartment up high, may be right or left side depending on model. Smaller than a pencil about 3&1/2 inches long.

GE Profile Spectra XL 44 gas oven


If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
