The time for the oven to reach the selected temp and changed. It was working fine up until yesterday, but now it takes forever for the oven to reach temperature. Do I need to replace the burner coil?

SOURCE: Preheat taking long time

If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.

SOURCE: oven quit working

Hi. this is common in many old gas range ovens. There is a set of coils that are attached to the gas valve assembly. These coils , when activated and operational, open and close the main and secondary valves in this unit. They are controlled by the main ERC(clock/oven control board). I recommend checking these coils and there respective wiring harnesses. if the clips and wires are worn and corroded, simply replace the entire wire harness.

Now, if the wiring harness and wires that are connected to the coils look good and there are no signs of corrosion on the wires and connector clips, this will confirm that the coils have failed and you will need to replace them.

You can also preform an additional test with a multimeter. simply connect your multimeter or voltage meter to both terminal posts located on the coils. once your meter is connected, start the oven cycle. you should register some sort of current during this test at this time. if the current is sufficient and the coils do not initiated the valve action, this will confirm coil failure. if the meter dosen't register a current during oven operation, this will confirm ERC(control) failure. you will have to replace the Oven control board in this case.

The Most common issue in this situation will most defiantly be the coil assembly and not the control.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Oven lights ,but doesn't heat to preset temperature

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Yes, one side of a double pole circuit breaker could go bad, but unless you live in a really old house it isn't likely. Instead of just replacing the circuit breaker, $30+, you might want to check with your neighbors and borrow a multimeter to check the outlet to see if you have 120 volts on each leg of your outlet (which makes up the 240 volts you need). If you have 120 volts on each leg then your breaker and outlet are functioning.

Some ranges have an internal fuse that controls the heating elements. Suggest you go to and plug in the model # off the equipment id tag (on rear panel or on oven frame) and check to see if there is a fuse or fuseable link.

On a Frigidaire Gallery oven, it takes forever for the oven to heat to the set temperature. 20-30 minutes. This seems like a very long time. Once it reaches the temperature the oven temperature is fine,...

Replace the door seals, they are the thin rubber strips around the front of the oven when the door is open. They are simple to change as they just clip on.

Top oven of dual oven unit not reaching tempature

There are a a few things you'll want to check.

1) place the machine on bake to verify the bake element is coming on then do the same for the broil element. In normal operation both of these elements are supposed to come on helping the machine reach temperature quickly.

2) If both elements are working, let the machine cool down and then locate the oven sensor. This is going to be located at at #453 I believe on the diagram I list below:

using an ohm meter this can be check and should measure out at 1099 ohms. If there is a slight difference, say something like 1087 ohms, it will cause a major difference in performance in the machine working right.

I own a GE JGBP33BEH5BB and the oven doesn't get hot enough. I've changed the sensor with one from a JGBP30BEA1WH that was working fine when it was removed. (replacements for both are the same part number...

The orange glow is the igniter. Normally, the igniter turns on and begins to glow. As the igniter heats, the change in it's resistance causes it to use more electrical current (amperage). When the amperage level reaches a threshold (let's say 3.2 amps, for an example) the ovens safety gas valve will open because in knows the igniter (using that much electrical current) is hot enough to light the gas. This process usually takes under two minutes. The igniter stays on until the oven reaches the set temp, then it turns off, and the gas valve shuts off very soon after. Then the cycle repeats when the oven thermostat call for heat again after cooling down a bit.
The trouble is, as these igniters get old, they have a harder time reaching that needed amperage threshold to operate properly. You can just swap the broiler igniter with the bake igniter if you wish, as they are the same part number in your model, and the broil is generally used much less, and so should have much more life left. (of course now the broiler and the self clean will not work, until you replace the broiler igniter with a new one.) In rare cases, if you have low line voltage to the range (say 108 volts) that will also cause the same problem, or if you have a poor electrical connection, but those cases are rare, and about 99 percent of the time your problem will be fixed by replacing the oven igniter. (GE part number WB2X9154 for your model)
Sorry to get so long winded. Just replace the oven igniter.

I found the solution on a "solution" section right here! the range may be in the "lock" mode. Press the "clock" and the "bake and hold" buttons together for 3 seconds then release. You may have to repeat this if your display still says "lock".

Electric Oven not getting hot enough

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.

1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

25 mins for oven to reach temp is not unusual. if it reaches temp ok across the range, don't think you have a problem
