Question about GE Ovens

Oven won't completely shut off, gas goes on and off 24/7

The knob to turn on the oven is messed up. You are suppose to be able to push and turn, but you can't really push in anymore. Very cheap knob fixture. Very cheap oven, the basic I am guessing. It is about 5 and 1/2 years old, came new with our condo. The tempature is incorrect and it never really shuts off completely but runs apparently on a very low temp.

The Valve has started to sieze up requires either striping down cleaning and regreasing with polycoat grease or a new valve put on, either solution requires a Corgi registered Gas Engineer. May be expensive could be cheaper to get another oven and have a 12 month guarentee

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

Gas oven does not stay ignited


Does your oven need an electric connection? Check if the plug is in the socket properly, if it is change the fuse and see if it works. If it does work check the. lead for a possible bad connection in the fusetop

How do I clean my oven? Model #RF354BXWD?


Hi,

At the bottom of this is a link to the manual, it shows details starting on page 22 of how to clean.

Remove the racks and pans from the oven.

1. Move the Lock Lever to the right-the Clean position.
When the oven temperature goes above normal baking/roasting temperatures, the door cannot be opened and the Lock Lever must not be moved.

2. Set the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob to
CLEAN.

3. Make sure the clock and Start and Stop Times all have the correct time of day.
4. Push in and turn the Stop Time Knob clockwise two or three
hours. The OVEN HEATING Indicator Light will come on. l Use two hours for light soil. l Use three hours or more for moderate to heavy soil.
NOTE: Make sure the Start Time Knob is not pushed in.

5. After the Self-Cleaning cycle is completed and the oven has
cooled enough, the Lock Lever can be moved back to the left.
DO NOT FORCE the Lock Lever. Wait until it moves easily. Turn the Oven Selector and Oven Temperature Control Knob to OFF.

6. After the oven is cool, wipe off any residue or ash with a damp cloth.
If needed, touch up spots with a soapy steel-wool pad.

Morning I need help please regarding my gas oven (Beko SCG7530). The problem is when i turn the gas knob on,(push and hold for say 10 secs)the oven works fine,but as soon as the knob is released the gas...


Sugar,
Sometimes it takes a minute or longer for the thermocouple to get hot enough to send the correct voltage to the main part of the gas valve to get it open & the burners to light. If after a few attempts of turning the pilot knob to off, waiting a couple of minutes and then going thru the lighting process, your problem is the thermocouple. Most repair companies will NOT install YOUR parts because of the liability & warranty issue. The best bet is to call a repair co & explain what the problem is & tell them to bring a thermocouple with them. Sears or calling your local BBB is your best course.

Oven does not turn off completely


You should pull the knob off and check that there is a metal liner in the knob itself. These sometimes fall out and the plastic knob does not turn the control properly. Get a new knob at your local appliance store.

WAISTING GAS BAKERS PRIDE GAS OVEN DOESNT SHUT OFF


Hi, don't know if you received an answer, however your gas valve sounds to be bad, when turned to pilot, it should only allow gas to the pilot assy. The problem is, it has already failed to shut fully, if it still does that with it in the off position, it would still be allowing gas through it, if the pilot goes out, there is now no protection to shut itself off, get it replaced ASAP. Hope that helps, and thank you.
