Question about GE Ovens

2 Answers

I am the owner of a GE Monogram oven model #ZDP48N6DD1SS and have continually have a problem with the large oven holding temperature. I set it at 350 degrees and it takes very long in either convection or oven mode then after a long time reaching this it then drops substantially down to 200. I am trying to figure out whether it is a bad t-stat or something else. Any ideas on what I can do to remedy this? Scott Norton gsn176@aol.com

    Looking for someone who is familiar with GE Monogram non digital oven. It is a 48 inch 8 years old and I continue to not get consistent temperatures and cooking is just not worth it. As mentioned the oven does heat up very slowly and both top and bottom elements are red but once heated to temperature it drops down quickly.

Hi

The issue can either be a bad electronic control/clock assembly or the oven temperature sensor (probe) has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...

Hello Scott...You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem. Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

GE Monogram Range igniters keep firing even when oven is off.


I had the same problem. Had GE out, they said it might be something but they'd have to take the cooktop off and it might be $300 or it might not. I unplugged it and now use matches.

GE oven temperature is not true, and needs to be reset. Oven temp reads 350, but is actuallyonly 325. Can you help?


The temperature is within manufactures specifications.
By that I mean that the majority of manufactures allow a tolerance of + or - 10 % of the set temperature.
So, in your case, 10% of 350 degrees is 35 degrees, thereby showing that the actual temperature you are obtaining is well within the 10% allowance.
I hope this helps you .

GE monogram double oven display getting extremely hot


Usually the knob type controls uses the bulb for temperature regulation. There is usually only one adjustment available - otherwise the thermostat has to be replaced. - that dial with the temperature graduations on it. the whole unit - the bulb in the oven is connected to it.
