Question about GE Profile JB988 Electric Kitchen Range
Our oven operates properly in convection mode, but will not maintain temperature in standard mode after it has successfully preheated to the set temperature. That is, it will heat to 375 but will then cool back down.
I am not an expert, but this has happened to me. Examine your circuit breaker and see that it provides the amps that your oven requires. If it just barely provides it, then it could be that your circuit breaker is tripping if you have anything else on that line and it is being used. Especially hair dryers. If your circuit breaker is not tripping, you should contact GE or repair service because you may have a "power module" problem. Good luck.

Most likely the problem is your bake element. When the oven is preheating it uses both the bake and the broil element. When it's done preheating it uses only the bake element, so the broil element is heating it up, and since the bake element is not working the temperature drops until it starts preheating again.

You will need to replace the "cycling thermostat". Here is the part to order.
