Re: taking way too long to heat
Usually when an oven is slow to heat, it is because of a bad element. You can look at the upper (broil) and lower(bake) and see if they appear to have any major burn marks on them, It may just look like something spilled on it untill you look closer or try to clean it off. if you do not find any obvious problems, turn the oven on and wait a fem minutes, then see if the bake element is glowing. Also look at the broil element, they should both be glowing at least a little orange. Compare how it works to the other oven that works properly. If only one of your elements is glowing, either you have a bad element (which is usually apparent on visual inspection) or a bad relay board that controls the element. The element is easy to change, onlt a couple screws and 2 wires (turn off the breaker first!!), the relay board is pricey, and a pain in the tookas. if you decide to guess, try the element first. Hope this is at least a little helpful.

Is it continues to heat up then its working fine...if it continues to heat pass 400 then your have a thermostat problem and the oven is out of control. I do believe that the display is not an actual reading of the oven temperature, instead it is a reading of where the operator has set the temperature to . I have yet to see an oven with a actual reading temperature display.
1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.
2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.
3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.
1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.
2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.
3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.
4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.
5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.
Oven will not hold correct temperature:------- This can be caused if temperature probe not working.Resistance across temperature probe leads at room temperature (70°F) should be approximately 1096 ohms.----------- Other possibility for this problem is :--- Temperature control not calling for heat.When heat is required, there should be continuity between terminals 6 and 7 on temperature control.-----------Inadequate or improper ventilation.Check ventilation hood. Verify draw and make up air adjustment.-----------If all this checked out ok then its calibration problem.For calibration follow this procedure:--
It can be problem with temperature controller.
TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER (Standard-Control Models Only)
The calibration of the temperature controller should not be changed until sufficient experience with cooking results has definitely proved that the temperature controller is not maintaining proper oven temperatures. Before any recalibration is attempted, the oven temperature should be checked by the following procedure:
1. Remove all trays and pans from the oven.
2. Place a thermocouple or a reliable mercury oven-type thermometer at the center of the middle rack.
3. Turn the oven ON and set the temperature control knob to 400°F.
4. The amber "heat on" light will go out when the oven temperature is reached.
5. Allow three cycles for the temperature to stabilize.
6. Read the thermocouple or thermometer immediately after the light goes out for the third time, and again immediately after it comes on the next time.
7. If the average of these readings varies by more than 10°F from the dial setting, recalibrate by the following procedure. Recalibration should be attempted only by a competent service technician.
Use the following procedure to recalibrate the oven:
1. Loosen the two set screws that secure the temperature-control knob to the temperature-control shaft.
2. Remove the knob from the shaft, being careful not to rotate the knob or shaft.
3. Replace the knob on the shaft so that the indicator mark on the knob points directly at the temperature that was measured at the center of the oven.
4. Re-check the oven calibration.
Part number for temperature probe is 1181996 and you can order if from the Southbend service center.--------If you want the manual and wiring diagram for your oven.Please click the link directly:--http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man

1. Test for power to determine that the unit is receiving the correct voltages. 2. If the power voltages are correct and you have standard surface burner elements: 1. Test Surface Burner. 2. Test the Receptacle. 3. Test the Burner Switch. 3. If the power voltages are correct and you have solid-disc elements: 1. Test the solid-disc element. 2. Test the Burner Switch. 4. If the power voltages are correct and you have radiant heating elements: 1. Test the radiant heating element. 2. Test the Burner Switch.
1. Make sure the controls are set properly that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Where applicable, make sure the oven timer is set to manual.
2. Make sure the oven door is slightly ajar as per your owner's manual.
3. If nothing else on the Range, Oven or Cooktop is working then: 1. Check the circuit breaker or fuse 2. Test for power
4. Test the broiler element.
5. Check the oven thermostat.
6. Check selector switch.
7. Check oven cycling relay.
REMEMBER YOU ARE WORKING WITH 220 VOLTS - USE EXTREME CAUTION .
Please if no experience, please contact a skillful personnel for assistance.
Thanks for using fixya..and please don't forget to rate me 100%.
1. Check to see if the both that Bake and Broil elements (burners) are heating up. Check the Broil element in Broil mode.
- during pre-heat the Broil element gets cycled on and off for short time durations to speed up the heating. If the Bake element is not working, then the oven will heat, but very slowly and never reach high temperature.
2. If the elements are both working, then it's possible that you have a bad temperature sensor.
- this is a temperature dependent resistance device that should measure 1080 ohms at 70 deg F (room temp).
3. If #1 and #2 are ok, then the problem is with your oven clock/control unit. We rebuild these at fixyourboard.com.
1. Bake or Broil element faulty. The oven cycles these on and off to reach and maintain the average setpoint temperature. If the elements heat poperly during the time they are ON, then they are OK (may be able to see them glow).
2. The temperature sensor probe is faulty. This can cause the oven to think it's hotter than it actually is.
3. The above two causes can be easily diagnosed by a technician with an ohm-meter. If they are both OK, then the problem is in the controller itself. If this is the case you may want to have us repair the controller. We see this fault quite often.
Hope this helps you out. Regards, Bruce www.fixyourboard.com
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
