Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven temp will not exceed 350 deg, also the timer does not work

I have a Magic Chef [ model 6498VVD ] slidein gas range purchased Feb. 2000. I had a new igniter replaced in July 2008. Now the oven temp will not heat higher than 350 deg and must press down arrow to start, plus the broiler works only on low and must also press down arrow. Is it practical to pay for service to replace defective part? New slidein gas ranges are priced over $1000. A service call is $75 just to walk in the house to tell me what I already know.

Check the oven temp sensor with OHM meter. It should read 1100 ohms.
If not, replace it.
Otherwise the electronic control is bad.

Whe i set the oven to 350 it has an F3 and wont light. This is a magic chef gas pioltless stove


Hi ttommajor,

The F3 fault code description is a shorted or open oven temperature sensor (RTD). Please check the sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Oven does not heat up


I had the same problem with my magic cheff oven. I had to set the temp at 400 - 500 degrees to get to get an actual oven temp of about 250 degrees. The oven temp sensor checked ok with an ohm meter. Should be around 1100 ohms at room temp. I work in the electronics industry and know capacitors go out of range and dry out with heat and over time so I replaced the 3 or 4 electrolitic capacitors on the timer board. Cost me about $6.00 at Radio Shack and now my oven temp is right on the money. I realize not everyone may want to do this but it worked for me. Better than the $200.00 for a new oven timer control board. I have also found a company's website that fixes these boards for about $89.00 ApplianceTimers.com

Pilot light out/will not go above 350


Sounds like the thermostat controlling the gas valve in the oven is not working, I’m trying to find if the oven igniter is electric, but believe the igniter is electric. If it does light then not regulate the temp above 350 degrees, I am convinced the thermostat control is bad.
