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.
There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.
I have a kenmore gas range with digital display that will let me increase the temperature up to 35 degrees f*. It says to press BAKE for 6 sec., then use the number pad to increase or decrease then press START. Hope this helps Don
Open the oven door and look in the back wall of the oven near the top. Most GE temp sensors are on the right. Some models are on the left.It is metal about 3 inches long and smaller in diameter than a pencil. To chamge it out,unplug the oven,re,ove the retaining screw and pull it out of the oven. Pull carefully until the wire connector is exposed. Unplug the connector to completely remove the sensor.
You can re-calibrate the oven as follows;
press BAKE pad.
select temp of 500 degress or more.
immediately PRESS and HOLD the BAKE pad until "00" appears.
Then press the + or _ pad to adjust temp up or down 5 degrees at a time.
When fimished press the Clear/Off pad.
First let me address the temp ... Buy a meat thermometer and test it against the temp set in the oven. Though that isn't the most accurate, it should prove whether or not it is way way off.
Second.. convection baking takes considerably less time....
Third... elevation plays a key factor on baking but not so much on cooking meat. Baking above 2500ft elevation takes 20% longer and above.
