Check that both elements are working, and that there is 240 VAC being supplied to the oven (one of the two breakers has not tripped, or one of the two fuses has not blown.).

When I press the Bake Button it only heats to 175 degrees instead of 350. Using the temp up Button the maximum heat is 260 degrees. How do I return to the proper settings?


Hello Jim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears Home Services/A&E Factory Service field service appliance technician.

The information in regards to your model number does not match any known range. The model number is on a metal plate on the face of your oven when you open the door.

There are several components that effect the control of your oven temperature.

1.) Is your oven electric or gas?
2.) If electric do you see any sparking on the heating element?
3.) Does your broiler work?

I really do not know what you have. Give me the model number or call me @ 443-306-1362 and I will try to help you.

Our oven will only heat up to 260 degrees it won't go any higher


It sounds like 260 Degrees c would be the max temp of your oven, its a pretty high temperature.

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Ge jsp42 electric range ..Oven heats up very slowly..sometimes can take one hour to heat to 400 degrees..Stove top also slow..


Check the voltage at the outlet. It should be 208v or 240v. check by putting meter probe into the 2/3 slots. NOT the U shaped,or round looking holes.Check one to another. Check tag on range for voltage of range. If you have 208v at the outlet and range is 240v the oven will take forever to heat, it is not getting the power it needs. If the tag says 230v either will work. On the oven tag it will say either 1ph, or 3ph. If it says 3ph you outlet should have the voltage mentioned above between ALL 3 SLOTS! If you get 120v when testing any slot, you have only 1ph of power. Keeping it simple, the ph, (or phase,) between the outlet and oven have to be the same.

GE SPECTRA JGBP35 Gas oven


Solved a similar issue. Sounds like your glowbar igniter is shot and needs to be replaced. While the glowbar is glowing, it is not heating up sufficiently to release gas into the oven. The heat you feel in the oven is actually from the glowbar and not from ignited gas. Replace the glowbard. Here is what I recommended to someone else:

"Would be helpful to know brand and model. However, most gas ovens use a glowbar mechanism that regulates the amount of gas released into the oven. The glowbar also ignites the gas (and usually stays on all the time the oven is on). Often, the glowbar fails to heat up sufficiently and, as a result, doesn't allow the oven to release sufficient gas. If this happens, you may also smell small amounts of gas in the kitchen. The glowbar is hot enough to ignite the limited amount of gas being released into the oven. This is probably why the oven heats up but heats up very slowly. It's also possible that the heat being experienced in the oven is being generated from the glowbar itself without any gas being ignited. If this is the case however, it is unlikely that your oven to get very hot at all.

The way to test to see if they glowbar is failing is to test the amperage traveling to the glowbar when the oven is on. You can do this using a "clamp on meter" (purchased at any Home Depot or Lowes). Depending on the particular kind of glowbar you have, it should read above a certain amperage (in my case the reading was 2.7 amps and it should have been between 3.2 and 3.7 amps). I ordered a new glowbar from www.appliancepartspro.com and installed it myself (very easy). It fixed the problem. Here is a link that explains it pretty well (http://www.appliance411.com/faq/gas_range_ignition_systems.shtml#glow). Hope this helps."

Electric oven does not heat up enough


I had the same problem before the warranty expired. The heating element had exploded and there was white powder all over the inside of the oven. They replaced the heating element and it works as it should, however, this oven has never baked right. It gets hotter on the right hand side than it does the left and I have to constantly watch whatever I bake. I'm not very happy with this oven.
