Ge gas oven will not heat but burners work

My GE single gas oven says it is preheating but it never heats up or preheats. Also there is no orange light that comes on inside oven when it says it is preheating. Broil seems to work and the orange light comes on. The burners are working fine as well. What could be the problem? The model number is jgbp26ceh2cc and the serial number is mg299612p. Thank you,
Kara

You will need to check the bake and broil igniters and/or the temperature sensor. A multi-meter should come in handy to verify if these components are good or bad.

SOURCE: preheat worksoven wont bake

hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

SOURCE: Oven does not heat. Broiler and stove work. NO gas smell.

could be the oven thermostat, get a plumber/heating engineer out, but make sure you can trust him, cause he could try and say u need a new cooker when it MIGHT only be a new oven thermostat.

SOURCE: Preheat takes forever

http://www.applianceaid.com/nuker.html
click the link  Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F )
Some ohm readings and there temperature:
Degrees F    -   Resistance
            100 - 1143 ohms
             200 - 1350 ohms
             300 - 1553 ohms
             350 - 1654 ohms
             400 - 1753 ohms
            500 - 1949 ohms

SOURCE: shuts off when preheating with F3 or F6 error

The F3 error on this model is an open thermostat circuit. The F6 is a control or loss of power. Make sure the unit is plugged into a good 120 Volt outlet. Test this outlet with a power drill or lamp, wiggle cord in receptacle, if no other test experience or equipment is avaliable. Check the thermostate in the oven for physical damage. There may be a loose connection in the oven. This would require a good technican to find.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,


This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

Oven temp takes long time to preheat. Heat is not consistent


gas or electric? if gas, most likely the ignitor. if electric, most likely you lost a "leg" on your electric supply. ie only getting 110 vac needs 220 vac. check breaker or fuse box.

JRP 15 oven showed 350F and gave preheat beeps. Frozen lasagna "cooked" 45 mins and was still almost frozen. Oven was warm inside, not hot. Bottom element glowed orange when I increased the temp setting...


The oven was obviously not heated to 350 even though this was the setting. There is a very simple proceedure to calibrate the oven. It is different on different makes of ovens. Your owners manual will give you the detail of how to reset yours. If the manual is not available, click on the following link. Hope this is helpful.

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

My oven will not preheat at all.Or basically get hot.


You most likely have a defective oven ignitor. Even if it IS glowing, (orange) it may not be creating the proper resistance to open the gas valve to the oven burner. Once the ignitor is replaced, your oven should come on within 30-45 seconds after you set temperature.
