Question about GE JSP46 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Oven not preheating properly

Oven is several years old and has always worked great. In the last month if I set the oven temp to 350 the oven will indicate it is at the correct temperature but it does not cook correctly...takes too long. I checked it with an oven thermometer and according to the thermometer the temp is off ~ 100 degrees. I have found that setting the temp 100 degrees above what I need will bring it to the correct temp and then I can turn the temp down to the desired temp and it will maintain this temperature. Both the elements test ok

SOURCE: GE Spectra XL Oven does not maintain oven temperature

The most logical solution for your problem would be a faulty thermostat, but yet at the same time i dont understand how it would heat to the temp desired then not come on at all. I would definately change the thermostat to start off with. Let us know :-D

I have the exact problem. We had the ignitor replaced 2 already and it works for 18 months and stops. Occasionally, it the oven won't even start to heat. I am ready to throw it out.

SOURCE: Preheating Oven

Cold Stove, you may not be able to. The issue here is that oven manufactures put on their units a fast preheat. However it isn't possible to preheat an oven for 7 to 9 minutes and bake short time bake items properly. Also the oven sensor will respond faster than the absorbation rate of the sheet metal in the oven liner. To preheat an oven properly takes 15 to 20 minutes before putting in the food. I see this will a lot of current ovens. Sounds like a normal format of the control.

My oven takes 35 minutes to preheat to 350 and keeps fliping between bake and preheat. Temp goes up and down.


Sounds like your ignitor is becoming weak, Just because it glows doesn't mean its strong enough to work correctly. If you have a meter, check for amperage (round 2.2 - 2.6, Flat 3.2 - 3.6) to be good. If you don't have a meter, replace the ignitor first is what I would do. Good Luck

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.

Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Items are not baked all the way through

Put a thermometer in the oven to see how the temp is vs what you set it at. If temp is off by more than 25 degrees replace the oven sensor. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Preheat taking long time

If your oven has the hidden bake element then it is probably working properly. A standard oven with an exposed bake element will usually take about 12-15 minutes to preheat. The hidden element models take a little longer but they usually heat a little more evenly.
Post back if you have any more questions.
