Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question


Sirs:  Oven does not reach operating temperature.  e.g., When setting is 325F, the dial readout is about 70 degrees low.  Adjusting the control +/- 35 does not help.  When oven reaches the set point, the relay shuts off the heating element and indicates that the 325F has been reached, even though the actual temperature is about 250F.  The temperature sensor resistance is 1091 ohms, close to the 1100 ohm specs.  Possibly the oven control itself is bad.  I was not able to locate the part in the shopping list. Can you help?  Do you have any other troubleshooting suggestions?  If not, do you have a part number and place to obtane the oven control:  Oven is:  GE JSP28G0P2BG, SN # VG281454Q.  Thanks,  Dave

My Frigidaire FGFL67DBF gas oven does not reach the temperature set. I tried to calibrating the control, but it did not work. Any suggestions?

I believe that you have a convection oven.... by design, convection ovens built by GE come up to 25 degrees below the set level .... when the Convection function is enabled.

GE Self Cleaning Gas Range F2 Error, happens at 400 degrees and turns oven off any advice?

Your oven temperature sensor must be replaced. It is located in the oven compartment up high, may be right or left side depending on model. Smaller than a pencil about 3&1/2 inches long.

Amana Range, AER5515QAW

could be a bad bake element, bad temperature sensor, or control board problem

what does the oven readout display for temperature? if the readout agrees with the actual oven temperature ... it is probably the element

if the oven readout displays a much higher temperature it may be the temperature sensor (the probe in the oven cavity) or the control board

the temperature sensor can be tested by measuring its resistance with power off and unplugged from the control board, should be about 1100 ohms at 75F

If the sensor is good, then it is probably the control board ... in which case we can repair it for you at

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.
