What are you using to measure the temperature of the oven? If you using a typical round oven thermometer, the reason is that your thermometer response is slow. It takes about 20 minutes for those thermometers to reach and display the actual temperature, and your oven is probably reaching it's set temperature in about 10 minutes. You really need an electronic thermometer or at least one of those liquid thermometers which you can sometimes find at Ace Hardware or True Value Hardware stores.

SOURCE: 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.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: Preheat beep indicator is inaccurate

A standard oven thermometer is not very sensitive. The reason is because the oven temp varies 50-75 degrees during the cycle and you don't need to know this when baking, you just need to know the median temp.
When checking the oven temp, you don't adjust anything until the oven has cycled at least 5 times. It takes that long for the cavity temp to stabilize. Since the temp on your thermometer does level out at the proper temp, I don't think you have a problem with your oven. I would assume they checked the temp with an electronic probe.
Adjusting the temp offset at the ERC is about all you can do without replacing the ERC or sensor if the temp is actually off.
Don't laugh about the federal regulations. The Dept. of Energy set oven temp/cycle time regulations that went into effect Jan '05.
They set regulations on hot water wash temps for new washing machines that just went into effect Jan '07.

SOURCE: inacurate temp

The follow suggestions apply if you are at sea level, or a bit above. If you are in the mountains, you'll have to compensate for altitude issues. You need an accurate thermometer to be spot on. One way is to use an electronic thermometer. Another is to set the oven to 217 degrees, insert a small pan of water into the oven, with a metal tray or pie tin on a lower rack to catch spills and see if it eventually boils. If the water didn't boil, you can adjust the temperature upward in  5 degree steps (see your owner's manual for details). If you've lost your manual, you may be able to go on-line and get a pdf copy of your manual.If the water does boil, you know your oven is accurate within 5 degrees. You can then proceed to re-do the experiment at 212 degrees, if you wish. Then you may use the data to adjust the oven temperature.

GE Model JKP12G0P2BG Wall Oven Bake Element Not Working Properly


The temperature sensor is bad. The broil element will work even if the temp sensor is bad but the bake element will not. If you measure the resistance across the contacts on the sensor, it should be around 20 ohms, if it is much higher (1000+), then it is bad and should be replaced. It is just as easy to replace as the elements and looks like a small pencil sized rod in the inside top of the oven. Let me know how this works out for you.

Preheat beep indicator is inaccurate


It's working ok. These often beep after a preset time. It may be set to beep at 10 minutes. Not always at the temp set. It is usually close enough though.
