GE JKS06 won't heat up past 200

Hello,
My oven will not heat up much past 200 degrees. I tested the elements and they seem ok. I was told that it could be the thermostat. SInce the thermostat is fairly expensive I wanted to make sure that it was the problem before I replace it. Any advice that you could give would be apreciated.

Thanks,
David Kay

Hi.
Could be that main oven stat is faulty, and also there is a possibility that the thermal overheat stat is coming in sometimes caused by poor ventilation.

Also there is sometimes a secondary element fitted to cookers which is not always obvious.
More investigation is needed.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

GE free-standing electric range Pre-heat oven temp is about 50 degrees less than what is set (i.e. set digital display to 400 and over only reaches about 350). Is there an adjustment that can be made to...


We have a new GE Range and the signal beeps at about 100 degrees below the temp which we have set . The dealer replaced the sensor and the control circuit, but there was no change.
A service tech from GE came to our house and explained that the new ovens have a bottom heating element which is covered and therefore heats the lower part of the oven more slowly; but the exposed upper element heats more rapidly and the sensor is located near the upper element. We were advised to wait for about 15-20 minutes after the beep before placing the food in the oven. Judging from the number of comments found online, this seems to be a feature of newer ranges.

Will not heat up past 200 bottom element is brand new?


Hello- It sounds like it is not getting 220V. I would first check the breaker and reset it a couple of times to make sure that it is sending 220V to the oven. There could be a problem with the relay board not sending enough voltage to the element. I would also check to see if the convection element is ok, it may share a common 120V wire with the bake element. If you are unsure about testing the elements then I would call a Tech out to test the voltage. The oven may have to be pulled to determine if there are any shorted wires. Good luck and best regards.

Oven won't heat past 200 degrees


Unplug the range.
Remove the oven racks.
Remove the screws on the bake element.
Carefully pull the bake element out.
Remove the wires from the element.
Use a volt meter set for ohms/continuity and touch one meter lead to one element terminal and the other lead to the other element terminal.
No reading is a bad element/
If you get a reading your oven control is bad.

Wont heat past 200 degres


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.
