    I discovered that my pressure compression valve was defective and I replaced it. Stove works great now.

Oven would not light. I replaced the igniter and now it lights but it will not heat past 200 degrees. Is this the thermostat acting up or is this connected to the gas supply? Any suggestions??? My oven...


when you say now it lights. is just the ignitor lighting?or can you hear the gas flowing??? can you feel it heating at all?? should start at 100 degrees and climb up from there. no reason for it not to heat past 200 (unless set to Celsius which default setting of 350 =190degress) therefore will not heat past 200. and wont let you try to heat to 425 , that would be off the charts of Celsius conversion. sensor problem would eitherno t let stove come on or wouldnt stop from heating eitherway a code would come up in the display

Oven not working properly


Do you mean 200 degrees Celcius or Farenheit? If Farenheit then the most likely culprit would be the thermocouple in the oven which can usually be replaced relatively easily by someone mechanically minded, if Celsius then you should suspect the elements although a working broiler would suggest that there is at least one element that works fine. Maytag says; "Why won't the oven heat up? First, make sure you've properly set all the oven controls. Check your user's guide for more information on your model's controls.(see below for the link to the manual if you need it) If your range offers the option of a delayed oven start, check to see if it's been selected. If so, the oven won't begin to heat until the selected time. If your oven has a lockout feature, check to see if it's been selected. If so, it will prevent you from using the oven. If your oven still won't operate, please contact an authorized Maytag service provider for more assistance." Here is the link to the manual; http://www.maytag.com/assets/product/8113P564-60.PDF and here is the link to Maytag Service if you need it - hopefully not; http://www.maytag.com/support/service_parts.jsp The other possible culprit would be the electrical supply to the oven - it may be adequate for the stovetop or grill but the oven may draw more power than the circuit can handle - even if it was fine before, this can change and may be caused by corrosion, rodents, overloading etc. and may not necessarily trip the breaker switch - if you suspect this at all then get a qualified electrician to check - it shouldn't take long to check so should be cheap, although repairs if necessary may cost more Hope this helps :)

GE JGSP31GER Gas Oven doesn't heat up hot enough


The part your talking about used to run about $275 which is pretty high for a free standing range but the cost of it isn't important. The reason why is that they no longer make that part anymore and when i looked it up I got NLA which means no longer available. You may get lucky and find a company that possibly has one still in stock, but there is no way that it will come with a warranty, so if its a dud when you get it your stuck with it. I would invest my money in something I could fix when it came time to.

GE XL 44 oven will not come up to temperature. Oven lights but will not heat beyond 250 degrees.


Hello,

The most probable reason the oven isnt heating very well is because of a weak igniter,since that igniter is weak its having a hard time fully opening the gas valve so the flame is very small and thusly not producing much heat,by replacing the igniter the gas will flow properly and heat to a high tempature.

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Re: GE Spectra Oven will not heat beyond approx. 200 degrees.


May be a bad thermostat... the elements usually either work or they dont but you can look it over to see if there are any burns or breaks starting to form or do a current test.
When you have figured out what part check out www.appliancepartssolutions.com they have cheep parts.good luck!

Stuck at 288 degrees



NO PARTS REQUIRED!!! DON'T PAY FOR A SERVICE CALL!!!



After a power outage, my wife's grandmother said she could no longer set her over to 300, 400, 450, whatever..



I went over to troubleshoot.



I couldn't figure out why everything seemed functional and why I couldn't set the over to higher than 288 (and thought, that's a rather odd number)... until I realized that that 288 degrees C = 550 degrees F which is the max the oven can do.



The power outage reset the computed back to celcius instead of fahrenheit.



Save them a ton of money... cause this could have been an easy cash grab to some cook out there.

Model MER57550AW won't heat beyon 200 degrees to prest 400


can you see lower (bake) element or is it hidden(under the oven floor). a visual inspection of elemnet is usually all that is required to determine if its good or not, It will have a "burn out" in it perhaps a plume of white soot around damaged area.in which case you will need to replace the element. simple enough 2screws and 2 wires part number 74010750.. if it is a "hidden" bake elemnt the floor oh oven lifts rightup to reveal it."POWER MUST BE TURNED OFF!!!!!!!! IT IS A CONSTSANTLY LIVE ELEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!
