Question about GE Profile JB968 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Temperature Contol Cannot control thermostat. I set it at the prescribed temp and sometimes it registers higher and sometimes lower. Baked goods do not come out right. I have baked brownies for 30 minutes longer than the recipe called for and they were still not done. Yesterday a cake which I cooked for 15 additional minutes did not get done in the center. All the elements work. The touch pad quit working a couple of years ago and I had to have it fixed.

Top of fridge freezing with temperature on lowest setting


You need a new thermostat but there are some things you can check in the link. 1 is the warmest setting.

Most refrigerator temperature settings are controlled with a dial or slider. They are sometimes labeled 1 through 5 or 1 through 9. If you are not sure what to set it to, then set it somewhere in the middle. If the dial is numbered 1 to 5 set it on 3, if the dial is numbered 1 to 9, then set at 4. USUALLY the higher the number on the temp control dial, the colder the temperature your refrigerator will get. If your drinks and food are not as cold as you like, set the temperature dial up one number higher. If it is at 3 and you want your food colder, set it to 4 and test 12-24 hours later to see if your food is at the temperature you want.

General Electric oven how to reset thermostat


First of all, most oven thermometers move very slowly compared to the electronic sensors and controls on the oven. To make sure you are getting an accurate reading, the thermometer should be in the center of the oven, the oven should be preheated, then wait another 20 minutes after the preheat beep. If the temperature is less than 35 degrees higher or lower at this point, it can be adjusted via the controls. Usually on GE ovens you press and hold bake and broil at the same time until SF comes up in the display. Then press bake, then use the arrow keys to raise or lower the temperature setting. If the temperature is more than 35 degrees off, you may have a bad sensor, bad control board, or other problem.

How do I turn up the water temperature on a Marathon 85 gallon electric water heater? I don't see any visible temperature control settings.


The temperature is controlled on the thermostats in the tank. They are under the two covers you see on the outside of the tank. There is an upper and lower thermostat. Make sure you shut off the power before you begin. Remove the cover and peel back the insulation covering the thermostat. Use a flat head screwdriver to adjust temp. There should be a pointer showing the temp its on now. They are probably set at 120 degrees. WARNING--turning your hot water temp above this point can cause scalding and burning in less than 3 seconds. You may have a burnt out lower element. This link below should help you

This is the manual to your tank. Good luck.

The freeze control on my PF1222TB is not working. Whenb the temp drops below the temp set on the contol, it does not start the pump


Freeze control is a thermostatically controlled switch.
There are 4 basic components:
-Wire connections that can come loose. Check that wire terminals are tight.
-Thermostat setting that can be set lower. Move dial and see if that has effect.
-Thermostat that can go bad.
-Internal switch that can stop working.

Replacement freeze control can be purchased separately:

Indoor temp is 5 degrees colder than display reads on digital thermostat


Where are you measuring the indoor temperature?
To compare it to the thermostat temperature you have to measure both temperatures at thermostat.
The thermostat will only control the temperature at the thermostat, not any where else in the room.
The room temperature depending on insulation in walls and ceiling and distance from outside wall and outside temperature, can be as high as 10° difference from outside wall to inside wall of house.
The lower the outside temperature, the greater the room difference in heating. The higher the outside temperature the greater the room difference in cooling.

Freezer extremly cold, some frost on items. The fridge is also too cold, freezing food in the bottom crisper bin. Kenmore Elite side by side model # 5320902. We have the temperatures set higher to...


The compressor is cycled on/off by the fresh food temperature setting. The freezer setting controls a panel, or door if you will, that allows cold air to be blown into the freezer.

Since both compartments are getting too cold, the most likely culprit is the fresh food thermostat control, since it controls the compressor cycle. Try setting it to a higher setting, even if it's above normal. Use a manual thermometer to check the temperature of the fresh food compartment and compare it to the control setting. The readings should be the same or very nearly the same.

I assume your refrigerator is controlled by a solid state controller (i.e. a printed circuit board). Some of these allow for calibration of the thermostat to coincide with the actual temperature of the fresh food compartment. That would most likely have to be done by a service technician unless you have expertise in the field.

If calibration is not an option, if you can live with the thermostat setting not reflecting the actual temperature, a free fix is to simply set it higher than you actually want it to be, recognizing that the actual temperature is 'X' degrees lower than the thermostat setting.

The freezer compartment temperature will be similarly affected, and can be controlled by the freezer temp setting, which is actually nothing more than setting the position of the panel which allows or restricts air from being blown into the fresh food compartment from the freezer. Again, the compressor is cycled on and off by the thermostat in the FRESH FOOD compartment which gets its cold air from the freezer compartment.

Ddifference between Prest models 06000 and 06003


The difference between the two models is styling. Both use the same temperature contol. Temperature settings are in degrees. The warranty covers the non-stick surface, but misuse or abuse will void the warranty. Normal household use will not affect the surface.
