I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Temperature controls


Hi,

Ok, I need some information from your to answer this question correctly. 1. How long is your preheat time? Must allow 30 mins for the oven to heat and settle, failure to do this you will have temperature issues, usually burning food. This unit was designed to use both elements to preheat, so inserting food too early will burn your food. 2. What rack position did you select for the product you cooked? This is really important!!! I am a certified tech and I understand this issue you have, but information is key to answer this for you. Most people don't read the instruction manual and treat this oven as all the others on the market. As the ovens get more features, its important to learn how to operate as instructed to avoid these issue and have a great turn out of good food at the same time. Please get back to me if you would like more help. Thanks Gere

Kenmore oven shuts off before preheated


On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.
When the oven reaches temp, it cuts out. sounds like faulty over heat stat.

Top oven wont stay alight


Seems the Thermocouple (instrument that lets the oven know the gas is lit) is not working properly. Your ignitor is working thus allowing the gas to burn...but the heat is not moving down the thermo line to register as being lit. Thus the oven thinks gas is being pumped but not burning and turns off as a safety precaution. THere must be a thermostat sensor...usually a wire or tube that allows the heat from the burning flame travel towards a sensor...this is faulty...remove and replace.

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?


Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

My 36 " thermador oven,


The sensor on the burner is not sensing the flame. It could be the sensor itself or its' controller. You need to call for service.

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.

When Oven turns off so does oven pilot


Hi there, it is possible of the pilot being too close, but usually does not have that effect, unless the pilot is too small. But if you replaced the pilot, it should be clean, so next I would look at the gas pressure, if this is too low, the flame won't have proper burning speed, and strength, and could get drawn out. The control valve may be of the type that has a regulator built in, you may need someone skilled at gas pressure measuring, to do this, your gas supplier, appliance professional, plumber, should be able to do this.

Let us know, and thank you.
