Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP79 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

GE Profile Gas Range oven turns off

The problem is with the oven. When it is hot for any extended amount of time (1 hour plus in most cases), the oven turns itself off and the panel shows F7 & E6. When we press the off button, the panel clears, then the broiler prompts come on and off continuously beeping each time, F7 occasionally appears during this time. The panel eventually stops flashing when the oven is cool. Then we can use the oven again until an hour later, the same thing happens again. The oven is about 5 years old and we've never had a problem until now. Anyone have an inexpensive and surefire fix?

I just read that the electronic panel malfunctions due to rear burner use. Now, I know that mine gets REALLY HOT in between the back burners (where the heat exhaust for the oven is) whenever I bake/broil. I am guessing that it can cause the same malfunction fromt he oven, as with the backburners. Whenever I use both back burners, mine shows F7 E6, too. Unplugging it for the night or just waiting til the beeping stops and then clearing it works... until I cook again. I read that the replacement part for the control panel is about $300 and another $200, more or less, to install it! I think this is more like a recall or manufacturer's problem. I have read plenty of complaints and I think GE needs to make a call to fix them!!

Ve a GE Xl44 Model JGBP26967P gas stove emitting carbon monoxide gas. To use the oven the house has to be open plus the vent has to turned on high.This is a big safety hazard. What can be done?

Check that there is a regulator .... and the gas pressure coming from the regulator to the manifold...if there is a regulator the gas pressure may be too high.....

the other problem would be dirty burners, but that would not be causing all of them to emit CO...

Most people do not realize it, but many gas ranges emit harmful amounts of CO....if they were furnaces they would be banned...

Oven taking very long time to hit temperature. set at 400 it takes forever (1/2 hour) then gets stuck at 398

Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)

GE Profile gas range

hello dreeden5
Ngafm at your service,

You have a GE Profile oven range. I and you just cleaned it and the pilot light on all four burners continues to click on and off.

It sounds like the gas line or the gas valve, have some debris in them!
They need to be evacuated by an experienced tech.
This time you need service.

Bless You ngafm
Please give me a good rating at this sight before you leave!
Thank You
