Oven takes FOREVER to pre-heat

I have a GE wall over, model jgrp16gep. The broiler seems to work fine, but the bake does not. It takes forever to pre-heat. It takes 45 mins or longer to get to 350.The oven is about 15 years old.

You probably have a bad heating element. Trip the breaker and make sure that all power is removed from the stove/oven. Remove the element, and test it for continuity. If it tests open, obtain a replacement from an appliance parts supply house. If it tests good, you should suspect either a bad switch or thermostat.

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?


i just moved and our stove in the new place doesnt bake things right. it seems that the top coil doesnt come on. its very difficult to bake anything. seems to come up to temp for pre heating, but only the bottom coil comes on. If you put it on broil, then the top coil gets hot. that works fine. tired of burning pizzas and biscuits. can anyone help with a cheap fix? dont have alot of cash.

GE Gas built in oven Model JRS14 will not heat up


The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

GE Gas Range Over Won't Heat


Hello, Yes this is going to be the bake igniter. If you remove the lower panel in the oven you will see the bake igniter. It may still be working when you switch on the oven but it is not getting up to the correct temp in order to ignite the gas. Replace the igniter and you will be all set. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck! Mike

Broiler element comes on when "bake" is pressed


does the bake element come on at all?
if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off.
on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.

other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.

Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
