Question about GE JGBP26 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Erratic Oven temp

The oven temperature is erratic. Oven won't hold at set temp. Sometimes it starts out OK and then falls off, other times it stays low.

I replaced the thermostat - no improvement.
I got out my multimeter and tested the resistance and voltage readings for the ERC on the wiring diagram and technical data sheet. All readings are OK.

No F errors appearing on the clock.

What's next?

Thanks.

Are you using any aluminum foil on the racks? This will interfere with the sensing capabilities.

Maytag MGS5770ADC Two problems, 1) The temp.


HI
I see you have two different problems, one for the display you would have to change your clock, and because you did not give me a complete model number I can't get you the part number you need (four different colors possible on this model). Second, when an oven ignitor becomes weak it can extend cooking times and cause the same problems you have, also if you oven sensor is defective or has oven cleaner n it can cause temperatures to be erratic. I will and can help you but need a complete model number to get you more information. Located left or right side of storage drawer when its pulled out along the frame rails.
Good luck..

The oven does not stay an even temperature and there is a gas smell. The broiler works fine! Only the oven....


By the parts diagram, it looks like you have a glow coil type igniter . Generally when the oven wont keep temperature, the igniter is failing to reignite the burner. The burner comes on till it reaches temp then shuts off until the temp falls below a certain temp then comes back on until it reaches temp again and so on and so forth. Most of the time the igniter has a very small crack in it and doesn't begin to fail until it cycles several times. I would check the igniter and the safety valves and coils on the valve

It was the igniter. The gas would go higher and then lower. The oven would take an hour to heat up. The new igniter did the trick. Thanks for your help and that link to the new part.
