Faulty THERMOSTAT. Call a repairman to replace. If you attempt to locate and replace it, be sure to turn off all gas from the outside handle. You may have to relight all of your pilot lights, but its better than blowing yourself to the moon!

I have a RCA gas self cleaning oven,It heats on broil but not on bake.we have noticed over the weeks the oven was getting as hot as the thermostat was set at.Now it won't heat at all


Hi. This sounds like a weak igniter, the symptoms usually are: burner won't light, or takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

Oven sometimes doesn't heat up. Sometimes heats up to desired temp, then quits working. Sometimes doesn't even heat up at all. When preheated light comes on, thermometer in oven usually says about 100...
