SOURCE: I am attempting to pre-heat oven to 400 degrees

Hi, Upon reading your post I immediately thought of a bad ignitor for the oven, but I am not sure whether you have a gas oven or a conventional electric range. So...If it is gas, I'd suggest replacing the ignitor for the hot surface ignition. If it's electric the bake element may be at fault although most range's use the broil in the preheat, so it should still climb up to 400, it would just take a really long time. Maybe you can clarify if it's electric or gas and I can try to move you forward from there. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: not the right temp in the oven 100 degrees off

I have a kenmore gas range with digital display that will let me increase the temperature up to 35 degrees f*. It says to press BAKE for 6 sec., then use the number pad to increase or decrease then press START.
Hope this helps
Don

SOURCE: oven heats to 100 degrees and stays there

Hello David, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description,I`d suggest it is the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner that is likely the problem...even if it glows, I'll explain further below.

Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined. It'll look like this...

macmarkus_239.jpg


** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

NOTE: Some ranges have an upper broiler the same as the lower (bake) ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.


Here's a helpful link...
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Hot-Surface-Glow-Bar-Igniter/316489400/1197384?modelNumber=790.71402700

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case. Many people overlook the ignitor, especially if it "glows" since that gives the untrained person the impression it works...that is not the case however. (Ignitor may glow but not have sufficient amperage to open valve, or open the valve slightly, even intermittently...but not hot enough to ignite the gas).

As far as checking them you don't actually need a clamp on meter (though it is the preferred method) you can also ohm it out to test it as follows...

macmarkus_238.jpg
You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake ignitor. The number I use in most applications (it's fairly universal and replaces both long and short ignitors and works in 90% of ranges out there)... is part #12400035. (Will not work on the GE with round type ignitors though).

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s if you're more comfortable with that.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further or if anything is not clear and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs. Please take a moment to rate the assistance you received here and a brief testimony is also appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I recently ran the self-clean option on my GE Profile JK955B0F5BB. Now when I set the touch pad to 350 degrees or more, the oven heats up to beyond 500.


That is not a valid model number, the issue is most likely the thermostat has failed. The part is about 12 dollars.

Bottom oven isn't heating to desired temp. Considering swapping the heating elements to see if one is faulty - thoughts?


try thermostat first. verify heating elements operational, if so check if tstats are same. swap if so, If not jump out tstat and see if higher temp achieved.

Double check each connector to be sure it is installed (aligned on pins) properly. Also check wiring diagram for a safety limit thermal switch. If it has one, push to reset it.

We have a new GE Range and the signal beeps at about 100 degrees below the temp which we have set . The dealer replaced the sensor and the control circuit, but there was no change.
A service tech from GE came to our house and explained that the new ovens have a bottom heating element which is covered and therefore heats the lower part of the oven more slowly; but the exposed upper element heats more rapidly and the sensor is located near the upper element. We were advised to wait for about 15-20 minutes after the beep before placing the food in the oven. Judging from the number of comments found online, this seems to be a feature of newer ranges.

I have a double oven. Model WW27430. The top oven will not heat. The bottom is fine. I was told that is was the relay board. which I replaced and I am still having the same problem. Could both...


Looking at the schematic I see 2 possibilities:

1. I think the most likely cause is a failed "limit switch" aka "thermal fuse" aka "temperature cutout". For each oven there is a limit switch that feeds power to both elements. So the upper limit switch is probably tripped which would kill power to the upper bake and broil elements. The limit switch is usually located on the back wall of the oven cavity.

2. There are a relay board for each oven. Be sure you changed the right one.

Best Regards,
Bruce

This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symtoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven heats, but does not get to correct temperature as fast as it did, lower oven heats OK . When the pre-heat time is complete, oven was still 100 degrees less than designated.


when you first turn it on both elements should come on(your top element may be burned out)if so turn breakers off just take out the screws on the mounting plate pull out and take wires off and replace

usually it is the thermal cut off( TCO) ,a kind of themal fuse which goes out if the temp exceeds certain limit and cuts off the power to the elemnts.it is to protect the cavity from over heating.it needs to replaced or reset depending the model. u will need a tech to fix this.

Oven probs


I think you are having a problem with a high limit switch that has become faulty. If you are running this around 400 degrees F. These things fail over time and since you said its a blodgett deck oven I assume it has to be over 10 years old. If you need further help please comment me back.

Hope this helps ya
