Oven Burner turns off during preheat

This range has been in place 4 years and has worked fine until the other night. While waiting for the oven to heat up, in either convection or regular modes, it would get to around 250 degrees and then would stop heating further. At the same time, I started to smell a strong odor of gas. I turned the oven off and after it cooled down I removed the flame baffle from the oven burner (not the broiler) and watched the flame. At between 200 and 250 degrees, the flame abruptly goes out and the gas smell starts. This occurs in both the Convect and Regular bake modes. This does not happen in the Broil mode. I took the burner pipe off the oven valve and made sure the holes were not clogged and replaced it but I am still having the same problem. The igniter stays lit the entire time and does not lessen in brightness. It seems as if the flow of gas is reduced to the point of lack of sufficient flow to the igniter but enough to seep past in a gaseous state. Could this be a valve problem or an electronics issue in the command/control structure?

Re: Oven Burner turns off during preheat

Mike, I think your problem is in the ignitor itself. Turn the gas off and see how many amps it's drawing during the bake mode. It needs between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to keep that valve open. Then ohm out the temperature probe, appox 1132ohms at room temp. You can see if your electronic control will go into a quick test by pressing and holding the cancel and broil buttons together for 3 seconds. First kill the power to the range and power back up before entering. When quick test appears you can check the bake relay by pressing bake. The relay should activate and 1 should be displayed. Same thing for convection bake except the fan should run too. back.

Takes long time to preheat oven

you can increase the sides of the flame, by opening the orifice inside the oven, the location is where the burner sits on, what supplies gas to the burner. that will speed up the time.

GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

American Range ar6b-24rg

If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3

It could be the sensor. Remove the sensor and check for 1 to 1.1K ohms. at room temp. If that's not the problem it may be the oven solenoid on the burner. You can also have a problem with the door lock making when it shouldn't check that also.
