Question about GE Spectra JGBP35 Gas Kitchen Range

Several Related Issues

Several problems with my oven/range exist. 1. The oven will start regularly but often does not come to proper temperature or stay on. It often undercooks food. The oven shuts off prior to me shutting it off. I have noticed that the 'beep' signal that the oven is at desired temperature sounds much too quickly. I have verififed this by using an independent thermometer to measure the temperature. 2. During oven operation and at times after I shut the oven off a 'F2' error message will come on. 3. The broiler has never worked in the 2 years that I have had ownership of this appliance. I think it is about 14 years old. There is no evidence of any broiler activity when I try to start it up. 4. Two burners on one side of the stove top do not start after a reasonable time. If a burner dial is set to lite it is likely the burner will not start. But if I also turn the nob to the High position for a few seconds, then back to lite, then the burner will light. After started any and all burners work very well. I am fairly handy with tools and am mechanically oriented. I am willing to do the repairs myself. Thank you for all of your support. Shado

My frigidaire oven model es400 while cooking in oven, it started beeping and a code of f7 flashed on all control panel Windows. Not oven is higher temp than listed

Hey Scott, thank you for your inquiry!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an error code of "F7" and it is beeping. Typically, "F7" stands for runaway temperature (overheating). This could be an issue with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting from your oven for ten minutes. If you continue to have issues with the "F7" error code I would recommend having a professional technician out to your home for proper diagnosis and replacement of any electrical components. Hopefully this information has been helpful. -Matt

Why is the thermostat temp. range reading 30 degrees lower than it should be

Thermostat controls are nothing but variable resistors. Sometimes they build corrosion in the metal tab that it is sliding on. First try rotating the knob back and forth several times full range. If it is a slider instead of a knob, move it up and down full range. (This should be done on a regular basis.) If that does not work then shut the power off to the unit and get some contact cleaner. You can buy it in any electronic store. Spray the contact cleaner into the back of the control and work the knob full range again. It should feel easier to turn after a few turns. This should do the trick. If it doesn't, you need a new thermostat.

You more than likely have a bad ignitor...and if you are getting a l;oud boom the you should also consider replacing the gas valve for the oven it should not be letting gas out until the ignition is hot.

I need to learn how to use my oven, because i don't know how to turn it on.i need to bake,so can u tell me how?

You can get the manual for the RGB745 at the GE Appliances support site: . Enter the model number in the search box. There are several models that start with RGB745.

On most of the Hotpoint ovens for regular baking, press Bake and use the + or - buttons to set the desired oven temperature. Then press Start/On. Then the oven will display Pre as it re-heats. When the thermostat indicates the desired temperature is reached, the oven will beep. The racks should be on the middle positions for most baking. (For roasting use the lowest positions.) Put the food in when the oven is done preheating. When done, press Clear/Off. Timed baked requires the clock be set correctly, then set the start and end times.

For the older ovens with dials to control the oven, set the first dial to Bake and the second to the desired temperature. Wait at least 10 minutes for the oven to preheat. Again put the oven racks in the middle of the oven for most baking.

Do not lock the oven latch and keep the oven closed through the baking cycle as much as possible. (Rotating pans and basting steps should be done quickly so that the oven doesn't cool much.)

I hope this helps.

I have a Maytag Gemini range and the bottom oven is off by 25 degrees. When I set it for 350 it only gets up to 325 actual temp even though the digital display says 350. Is there an adjustment or do I have...

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

If you think the oven is operating too cold or hot, you can adjust it. Bake several test items and then adjust the temperature set- ting not more than 10° F at a time.
To Adjust: 1. PresstheBAKEpad(upperorlower
oven) and enter 550° F.
2. PressandholdtheBAKEpad(upperor lower oven) for several seconds until TEMP ADJ is displayed.
3. PresstheAUTOSETpad-eachpress changesthetemperatureby5°F. The control will accept changes from -35° to +35° F.
4. Iftheovenwaspreviouslyadjusted,the change will be displayed. For example, if the oven temperature was reduced by 15° F, the display will show -15° F.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted temperature.

How do I calibrate the oven temp?

Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature,
set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature
in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should
give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0°
appears in the display.
4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time
a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F.
• Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing
to reduce the temperature up to -35°F.
• If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven
temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will
show -15°.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the
display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted
NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than
10° at a time before testing the oven.
It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect
broil or clean temperatures.

Preheat gets to temp but oven drops 20 d+/- after food goes in. Is this normal

You may have already solved this but either your convection motor is not on or you have an air leak. I would get the repair man out since it is probablt still under warranty.
