Re: gas oven dosen't maintain set temperture

My experience on the direct spark ranges is that the gas valve is usually at fault for this problem. The regulator valve and the burner shutoff solenoids are all built together in one valve assembely. The valve will work properly until it gets hot then it will stick and not open when the oven calls for heat again.
Please post back with the complete model and serial numbers if you need further help in troubleshooting it. There have been many updates and design changes on these ranges.

Oven heats up on preheat nut does not maintain temp for cooking

The older type stoves used a flue to maintain the temp. Later on we went to gas or electric heat.
Mercury based bulb mounted to a oven control maintained the flow of gas or shoctricity to the appliance. Todays modern kitchen appliance rely on thermistors to verify temps for the oven control.
A thermistor is a special resister that changes voltages. When the heat rises in the oven the voltage being sent out is messed with. These voltage drops are monitored by headquarters. The heat source is applied by judgement rendered from these measurements. In other words the control gets word and sends heat or don't send none. So what can go wrong? Sensor out of spec throws a monkey wrench in the works. That fancy smancy control yall paid big money fer don't know weather to well yall get the picture. The sensor used to measure temps in the oven is usually 1100 ohms at room temp. if it is off the oven will not work correct.

Pilot light stays lit but oven will not stay lit

I would be interested to know just how long it is that the oven does stay lit. All ovens, gas and electric, cycle off and on throughout a baking cycle, to maintain the proper temp. If the flames or the power to the element were to stay on at full power for the life of the food's required time in the oven it would most likely wind up charred. The temp would simply continue to rise, up and up and up. If that's what it appears to be doing, then it's just working normally. If it goes out completely and stays off, doesn't come back on in a few minutes, then it may be in a keep warm mode. Many ranges have a TIMED BAKE cycle available, so you can set the clock to start the oven at such and such a time, cook the food and then shut off. Once it's finished with the cooking cycle, it goes into a keep warm mode, where it will come on for a short time and then go off, to maintain about 180 degrees. Not hot enough to really cook anything anymore, but hot enough to keep it warm for you when you get ready to eat.
If this seems to be the way it's acting, then look for the timed bake function on the console and set things back to a manual mode.

Oven comes on and than you hear a puff /pop sound as the ovens tries to maintain it's temperture

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Oven does not maintain a consistent temperature

Is this oven gas or electric? If it is gas then it can be normal to see 30 to 50 degrees difference in tempature. The tempature in a gas oven works on the average tempature. For example: The oven tempature may rise all the way up to 370 degrees. Then the burner will shut off. And then the tempature can drop all the way to 330 degrees. Then take 330 and add that to 370 then divide that number by two and the average tempature will be 350. If your oven is electric then the tempature should be much more consistant but can have a 10 to 15 degree variance. Also the standard oven tempature guage that you put in the oven or even the temp guage built into the oven are not very accurate. We us a Fluke meter with a thermocouple to calibrate an oven. So to check your oven for proper tempature regulation you will first need to let the oven pre-heat for about 15 minutes. Then place the thermocouple in the center of the oven. If the oven is electric the take a temp reading every 5 minutes and average them out. If the oven is gas then you will need to take a temp reading when the tempature reaches it's highest and lowest points. Take at least 5 consectutive readings and average them out. You should get an average within 10 degrees of set temp(350 degrees). If it is off by 35 degrees or less you can usually caluibrate the thermostat back to proper temp. This procedure can be different for each range model. If it is more than 35 degrees off or you are getting irratic readings then the thermostat or thermostat components might need to be replaced.

GE Xl44 does not reach or maintain setpoint . Display indicates increases of 5 degrees/second, but temp is not reached or maintained.

Have your oven ignitor checked. If they do not get hot enough quick enough the oven will light intermit. Usually when it does light you will often get a scent of gas or a poof. If that's the case, change the ignitor

Oven does not maintain temp.

It sounds like a thermocouple problem. While using the broiler, you gave the gas set to full and the thermostat is basically out of the loop.

GE Spectra XL44 oes not heat to desired setting

The oven sensor ( WB21X5301) is suppose to tell the oven control when to turn on and off to reach and maintain oven temp, but before you go replacing it, try to observe how long it takes from the time you turn the oven on to the time the oven ignites. Ignition should be 30 seconds to about 90 seconds. If it is taking a very long time, replace the igniter (
). Ignitors get weaker over time, and this should be looked at first, as both parts are not real cheap, so you don't want to just start throwing parts at it. Here is a trick you can try: On the JGBP90 (model you posted under) the broil ignitor is the same part number as the oven ignitor, so if the broiler, which is generally used much less than the oven, is working fine you can interchange the two ignitors to see if that solves your oven temp problem without having to buy a oven temp sensor first.
