    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

How do I set the oven on100.


I'm guessing that you want your oven at 100 degrees for drying some food/herbs, or culturing homemade yoghurt. I do all of those, so know the temp range required; 95-110. Most ovens can't be set as low as 100, but the cool thing about a gas range is that the pilot light keeps the interior temperature close to that, and if you keep the oven interior light on, that helps. Get an oven thermometer, costs under $10, test oven temp. If your oven doesn't do it you can get a pizza stone or even a few bricks, preheat the oven to warm the stone/bricks on the bottom rack, turn oven off. Then put in your product of choice on top rack. Leave yoghurt in for 8 hours, leafy herbs (sage, thyme, oregano, etc) for 12 or more hours. If doing yoghurt, don't open door, consistent temp is important. If doing herbs, crack the oven door open slightly with a wooden spoon to allow moisture to escape, critical to drying. I hope this helps.

JRP 15 oven showed 350F and gave preheat beeps. Frozen lasagna "cooked" 45 mins and was still almost frozen. Oven was warm inside, not hot. Bottom element glowed orange when I increased the temp setting...


The oven was obviously not heated to 350 even though this was the setting. There is a very simple proceedure to calibrate the oven. It is different on different makes of ovens. Your owners manual will give you the detail of how to reset yours. If the manual is not available, click on the following link. Hope this is helpful.

15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450


After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.
