Posted by on

  • norris5 Mar 13, 2008

    my Ge spectra oven will not maintain the temp. it is set for. It drops dramatically on its own or if I set slightly higher temp it jumps way up. The oven is approximately 10 years old. Is it worth fixing? It is listed as the GE spectra XL44 self-cleaning gas range.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Electric Range not heating properly.

The first thing you will need to do is to verify that you have 230 volts at the outlet. Chances are pretty good that the unit popped one of the double pole breakers. Check the breaker and reset it if you find that you only have 120 volts at the outlet. If after finding that you have only 120 volts and you've reset the breaker then the problem would lie with the breaker needing replacement. If however you have full 230 volts available at the outlet then additional troubleshooting would be needed. Hope this helps... Bill

SOURCE: trying to set oven temp. F-7 and F-1 keep

F7 usually means a stuck key on the keypad. I've also seen it caused by a greasey buildup on the keypad connector into the control board. Try pressing each button on the keypad followed by cancel. See if the buttons are registering with the control - should get a beep or some function (execpt up/down buttons need a cook or time function enabled first). If one of the buttons seems inoperative it may be stuck, in which case you probably need a new keypad.

F1 is usually caused by a failure in the control board and is a common problem that we repair on these boards. If you shut the power off for a few minutes, turn it back on and enter a cooking mode before F1 appears (after reset is finished) then you can cook. This doesn't fix F1, just allows you to work around it in an emergency.

We'd be happy to repair your oven controller for you.

SOURCE: my oven preheat light won't go off

you have a bad sensor or control panel. I would change the sensor first. it is the more likely culprit and is much cheaper then the control panel

Oven doesn't get up to temp...stops at 245 burner is lit but not on high...it was suggested it might be the ignighter..is this possible in that the flames are still there???


I doubt its the igniter because the flames are lit. Its more likely the the thermostatic sensor is bad. Sometimes they can just be cleaned with a wire brush when they get full of grease. That sensor controls when the flames go on and off to keep the oven at the proper temp. A bad one could not let the oven get to the proper temp.

It could also be one of the burners isn't lit. Could be clogged up with grease. Pull the lower / broiler draw out and turn on the oven. Stoop down an look to see if all burners are lit. (Please don't touch unless you know what you are doing) but a cautious look might tell you a lot

General Electric Radiant Slide-in Range JSP39: The oven does´nt work, in the screen appear F-3 very often, and inmediatly it gets off, sometimes appear F-2 and then gets off


These codes indicate an over temperature condition. The F2 & F3 error codes both mention the temp sensor. The temp sensor is mounted inside the oven cavity & regulates the oven set temperature. If the temp sensor fails the oven could overheat. This is what generates the error codes. I recommend having the temp sensor checked with an ohm meter, at room temperature the sensor should ohm out at approx 1100 ohms. If the sensor checks ok, then the control will need to be replaced.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.
