Question about GE Profile Spectra JBP95 Electric Kitchen Range
My top element in the oven will only start to heat when I turn the control knob to broil. Under normal baking conditons (eg: 350 degrees) the oven starts making a contionus ticking sound like its trying to send some kind of signal for the element to heat up but it seems like it just doesn't work and as a result the oven doesn't get hot enough. I haven't seen any error codes and everything else on the electric range including the display seem to be working fine. I can use some advise. Thanks!
Top burners work fine, self clean works fine, broil settings both hi & lo work fine. Regular bake setting top element does not turn on, as temp goes up, clicking sound from controls, never gets hot enough. Put separate temp gauge inside oven, digital read-out does not match temp on gauge, gauge always lower that read-out.
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
