Question about GE Profile JTP18 Electric Single Oven
Oven, 8 yrs old, seems to take a looooonnnger time now to reach the preheat temp --- And then, I have a feeling it's not really going as high as I program it to? What could it be? Need service or to replace something? Is this a common problem to have every so often?
You may have a bad timer, or heat sensor, or a combination of both. Buy yourself an inexpensive thermometer approved for ovens and check your temp and times manually while watching the inside thermometer.
You may find that it is performing better than your sensors tell you.
On the other hand, the heating elements make need changing, a relatively small cost. Note: Always change both the top and lower. Call any appliance parts supply house and give them the model number, and perhaps the serial number.
It's a small investment to determine whether or not its time to replece your unit.

Most likely the element has gone bad and needs to be replaced element will cost average $40.00 plus a service call, to do it yourself you would need to unplug the socket and then work on the unit as the voltage is 220 so unless your handy at figureing out how to unscrew the parts apart and being able to take the part in I would suggest you call a tech to fix it. If I had a picture of the element I could tell you how to take it out but then there would be no warrenty if the guy comes out and fixes the problem he or she would warrenty the fixed problem for a certain amount of time.
