GE Profile TrueTemp Oven Model JGB908SEL1SS

I purchased my new oven and have Propane gas in my house. I made all the adjustments according to the manual and everything works great except the oven. I am getting long yellow flames. I made the adjustments but no matter what i do it does not change. And the smell is so bad.

Thank you
Bart Caldara

Did you adjust the orifice on the saftey valve all the way down (turning it clockwise with a wrench)? The orifice is what the burner sits on top of.

Have a ge truetemp double oven model jkp27boa2bb. The control panel does not work. Turn the temp knob for lower oven and upper oven lite comes on. Is the control panel bad? Lower oven heats up only

The heating element on the top part off oven might be bad or a fuse that's located on back of oven either on or behind back panel.

Can I disconnect the cooling fan as it has become very loud. Whirlpool TrueTemp wall mount oven

Hi, it sounds like you need the fan bearing renewed or the fan unit. If you disconnect you will have to revert to just having an ordinary oven and adjust the temperature for cooking food accordingly for a oven without a fan.

I used the oven in the house we just purchased (a GE wall oven JTP18 and after I turned it off a fan kept running. Is that normal?

Yes, the program and thermostat calls for the fan to cool the electronics, without that you can loose the electronic boards. Normally the fans will shut off once temps drop to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Enjoy your new home.

I just bought a 35 w halogen bulb from lowes for my GE truetemp profile JKP56 built in oven. I just spoke to a GE rep who sells the bulbs and he said the bulb has no replacement numbers so I don't...

If the bulb you bought from Lowes is a 35 watt bulb and it screws in, then it will work just fine.
Appliance parts people love to sell you the "one" specific for your model because most of the time it is more profitable for them.

Good Luck!

Purchased a used gas oven yesterday. The top burners are working fine, but the oven is sooting up. We live in the country and use propane, but did not receive any additional orfice or instructions. In the...

We need a model number to be specific.
Check the gas regulator and make sure the pressure cap has been set for propane.Most of them are turned over to put more pressure inside the valve.
If so. Check the air shutter on the bake gas tube and adjust for the best color flame.
Also tighten the bake burner orifice with a 1/2 inch wrench.

GE truetemp double oven fan runs for an hour after I turn it off

Take it out back and shoot it. You are better off cutting your losses now and be done with it. If you have had it for 10 years, I am surprised you haven't burned your house down with it.
Seriously, it would cost a lot to fix it, plus it would frustrate you more and more the longer you put money into it.

Oven fan keeps running even after off and door open

3 to 4 hours is a long time. Get to the fans (behind the control panel) and check the screens for dust. Chances are the screens are clogged with dust and need to be cleaned so the fans can move air for cooling better. I had this problem on my GE JTP14, and after cleaning just one fan it can keep up with cooling the electronic area while the oven is running. It runs much less often.

Safety first! cut the breaker before removing anything with a nice conductive screwdriver! Hope this helps!
