Question about GE Ovens

Open Question

GE Profile Oven, model PT916SM1SS, purchased 10/07, never used until now - Using an oven thermometer to test. Oven set to Bake at 425, will preheat to about 300 and beep. Will not get to 425 unless I set the oven for 475. Does not preheat properly and does not heat to correct temp setting. Do I need to replace thermostat?

SOURCE: GE Wall Oven - No heat (broil or bake)

On appliances like this only the heating elements use 220 volts. things like the clock, fan, etc use 110 volts. That is why some things work and other do not. Start at the breaker, sometimes a double pole breaker will have 1 side tripped, but will look perfectly fine. switch the breaker all the way to off then re-set. If nothing changes follow the power to the appliance remove the panel and look for some fuses, check to see if any are blown. Also sometimes the microwave will have a separate power source even though its built in to the same appliance. So that's not always a good symptom to follow.

SOURCE: preheat worksoven wont bake

hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

SOURCE: Bake mode will not preheat. Circuit breaker is

Check both sides of the element for 100-120VAC. If either one is out, you won't get squat for heating - the problem is most likely with the DLB relay or the bake relay on the relay board. (The element should ohm out between 20 and 40 ohms if it's healthy.)

maybe you should have the lower oven cleaned including the gas caps, it may be tideous but worth it. first is to locate the burners, it may be dirty or clogged so the heating procedure is delay and often times consuming.

here i provided you with the manual and go to page 11 to go straight to the cleaning procedure.

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.

Oven warms to desired temp then cools down


Check your bake element. Unually ovens use both bake and broil elements to preheat and just bake element to keep temperature. Your bake element is probably burned out.

How do I know when the oven is preheated?


Depending upon your make and model of oven when you first turn the oven on to heat a light may come on that says 'preheat'. When the oven is heated to the temperature that you set it for the light will go off and some models sound a tone or beep as well. If your model does not show you in any way when it is preheated ( such may be the case in an older oven)you can purchase an oven thermometer for that purpose. If you will send the information regarding the make and model of your oven, I can give you a more specific answer.

Oven does not get to temp when it says its preheated


More than likely, its your oven thermometer thats taking a half hour to read correctly. The oven is probably getting there sooner. If you had a digital thermometer, the read would come quicker. So save your money,nothing wrong with your stove.

The Taylor oven thermometer you bought is decent at best. It is most likely the sensor inside the oven. Has your clock displayed any fault codes? F, followed by a number? Changing the sensor will probably correct the problem.
