Question about Kitchen Ranges
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?
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.
