GE Range problem

I just purchased the GE Profile convection slide-in (natural) gas range. Installed it and cranked it up yesterday (Sunday, March 30, 2008. Top burners worked fine, but we were pre-heating the oven to 375 and after an hour, it could only get to 193. A fan ran almost constantly the whole time as described in the operating instructions. Any suggestions?

    It was indeed the lever which popped off during installation. Nearly impossible to get back on, but after a great deal of effort, mission accomplished. Range now works properly thanks to your guidance on this matter. Many thanks!

ON MOST RANGES, THE REGULATOR HAS A SMALL LEVER THAT WILL SHUT OFF THE GAS TO THE OVEN BURNER IF IT IS IN THE WRONG POSITION. THE REGULATOR IS THE ITEM THAT THE GAS LINE IS ATTACHED TO. THE SMALL LEVER SHOULD BE POINTING OUT AWAY FROM THE REGULATOR AND NOT LAYING DOWN AGAINST IT. I'M ASSUMING THAT THE IGNITOR WAS GLOWING. THAT IS WHAT RAISED THE TEMP UP TO 193.
ANOTHER POSSIBILITY IS THAT THE IGNITOR IS WEAK. IT SUPPLIES CURRENT TO THE SAFETY VALVE TO OPEN THE VALVE. FOR A ROUND IGNITOR, IT SHOULD BE 2.8 AMPS OF CURRENT. FOR A FLAT IGNITOR IT SHOULD BE 3.2 AMPS. USE A CLAMP ON AMP PROBE AROUND ONE WIRE TO THE IGNITOR WITH THE OVEN ON TO SEE HOW MUCH AMPERAGE IS BEING PULLED BY THE IGNITOR.

Convert ge pgs975 to propane


You should be able to contact either GE or the shop you purchased it from & get a gas jet kit for it, which will make the conversion for you. They are pretty simple & can be installed by anyone with reasonable DIY skills. If you are not that person, it is a simple enough job that it should not be outrageously expensive. If you have a local heating & air conditioning person you trust they can make the change over for you & will probably be more reasonable on price.

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas


GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

Installation of gas convection oven range


check the specs on the oven you are planning to buy(the retailer should be able to provide this imformation)they should give you a recommended location for the gas feed in relation to the oven.the feed will need to be relocated to this location.if you are not comfortable doing this yourself (always use caution & common sense when working with natural gas).i would call in a proffesional,alot of times your local gas company will do this for a nominal fee,somtimes for free.hope this helps.thanx for using fix-ya!!!

im assuming you dont have to light the pilot.if thats the case and you replaced the ignitor assembly it could possibly be the ignition module/board.
