Ge profile spectra JGBP90

My range is roughly 5 years old and my oven takes forever to heat up, other times the digital temperature reading is 100 and will not move(not heat), other times when it's heating up you will hear a bang come from the range. The top burners light and the broiler seems to work(although not used often), what is the solution?

The oven needs a new ignitor more than likely

Why t takes long time for oven to heat up?

Does the oven actually heat up with the temperature more than 100 or does it just stay at 100? Alternatively, when you open the oven can you see the orange glow of the flame through the vents in the bottom of the oven and hear the gas hissing?

Oven taking very long time to hit temperature. set at 400 it takes forever (1/2 hour) then gets stuck at 398

Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)

Temperature control

sounds like a bad bake ignitor(uneven heat,long cook times, long preheat times, perhaps even gas smell while cooking)

Oven problem.

Only 81/2!! most are only expected to give you 5 good yrs anything else is extras. Your problem may be a defective gas valve (safety valve). Also it may be a defective ignitor - the more likely to go bad (if replacing stuff replace ignitor before safety valve. is there a glowing in the oven? does the flames come on any at all?

Claibrating the temperature of a GE gas oven

First of all, do not use the oven thermometers from a grocery store. they can be off by 20 degrees or more. These directions may help you for electronically controlled ovens. The older manually controlled ovens have a small screw head in the center of the oven temperature knob that can be adjusted in usually 10 degree increments.

To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the Bake and Broil Hi/Lo pads
at the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
Touch the Bake pad. A two digit number
shows in the display.
Touch Bake once to decrease (-)
the oven temperature, or twice to
increase (+).
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up as much as 35°F. or down as much
as 35°F. Touch the number pads the
same way you read them. For example,
to change the oven temperature 15°F,
touch 1 and 5.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the Start pad to go back to the
time of day display. Use your oven as
you would normally.
NOTE: The thermostat adjustment for Baking
will also affect Convection Baking or Convection Roasting.

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.

Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
