Question about GE Spectra JGBP30 Gas Kitchen Range

3 Answers

Oven takes a very long time to heat.

Our gas oven takes a good 30 min to heat to 350 & an hour to heat to 400. We had a repair man come to take a look at it. He said this is normal. What?!? I have never had an oven take this long to heat...So, after researching it ourselves, we replaced the glow bar a year ago. Obviously, that wasn't the answer, because we still have the same problem.

    I forgot to mention that the broiler and the stove top burners work just fine.

    I also have the slow pre-heat problem. It was not that way when the oven was new. It takes now about 30 to 40 minutes to reach 400. The burner flame is a perfect blue but not very large. Any guidance as to how long the flam should be? I estimate the flame to be about 3/8 inch long and uniform.

Do your burners work ok when the oven is on? if not you may have low supply pressure to your range or the regulator may be limiting the gas flow. Also, I have a wolf gas range and it takes 30 minutes to heat to 350 as well, haven't timed it to 400. Has it always taken that long? Another thing to check is the door seal. If its not sealing it could cause a long preheat. If the door seal is smashed flat and/or not soft it needs replaced. Hope this helps.

Sounds like a weak ignitor. If it doesn't get hot enough to allow the proper amperage through to the gas valve, you will have this symptom.
