I had a similar issue. Did you change the element in the bottom? Make sure you have a good seal on stove.

SOURCE: magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot

Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.

SOURCE: Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,

This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

General Electric oven how to reset thermostat


First of all, most oven thermometers move very slowly compared to the electronic sensors and controls on the oven. To make sure you are getting an accurate reading, the thermometer should be in the center of the oven, the oven should be preheated, then wait another 20 minutes after the preheat beep. If the temperature is less than 35 degrees higher or lower at this point, it can be adjusted via the controls. Usually on GE ovens you press and hold bake and broil at the same time until SF comes up in the display. Then press bake, then use the arrow keys to raise or lower the temperature setting. If the temperature is more than 35 degrees off, you may have a bad sensor, bad control board, or other problem.

GE Range JSP68 shuts off while preheating


I have an aging JSP68. First, take out the range control (held in by just a couple of screws, disect it, clean it the best you can, dry it. Be careful not to break it because there is no replacement. Pay special attention to the membrane buttons. They tend to stick. Realize the broiler element turns on sporadically to reach the set temp quickly, the bake element should be solid on. Check the "header" (the long double strip of pins) connecting the range control. I had to resolder mine. Another insult was that I baked a bread recipe that required you put water in the oven to generate steam. The steam made this oven literally go bonkers. The relays started to chatter and just a half minute of this will destroy them. Also when you press bake keep it pressed for a few seconds while adjusting the temp to 170 then release. If you don't hear the bake relay click on, try again. Another thing you could try is to press all of the buttons once, this should help to unstick them if any are stuck.

I don't have a solution, but I was wondering if it constantly beeps until you press the start button? I am having the same problem with my oven preheating. Until we can figure out how to stop this we unplug it and shut the gas off when not in use.

Oven wont heat


That depends if the oven is electric or gas.

If it is electric, it can be heating element, temp probe, or control knob/buttons, board and wiring.

If it is gas it can be the igniter (check spark) , the thermostat, the safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow, or the control.

If the oven has self cleaning cycle, check that it is not stuck on self cleaning, try unplugging for a while and restarting self cleaning cycle in that case.
