GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW Taking Too Long to Reach Temp

The last time I posted was in August, 2007. The problem still persists with my GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW. My husband did replace the oven igniter back in August, 2007. The broiler ignites and works well. It seems as though the problem with my oven really hasn't been fixed. When I turn on the oven, it seems to take forever to reach proper temperature. On rare occasions, my oven seems to reach the desired temperature in about 15 minutes compared to the 25-30 minutes it usually takes. Sometimes, I even smell gas. About 20 minutes after starting my oven last night, I smelled gas and noticed that the temp was only at 100. I turned oven off and started the broiler. Kept the broiler on for 5-10 minutes and then turned oven back on. Temp read 242 and stayed and would not increase in temp. So I kept alternating by turning on the broiler and then the oven to try to finish cooking my dinner. At one point the oven did reach 350 degrees. This went on for about 1 1/2 hours and still my dinner was not completely cooked. It was hot but not hot enough to melt the cheese in my lasagna. I don't know what to do any more. My husband insists on fixing the problem himself, but doesn't know where to start. Some one said it might be the gas valve. If so, where would the gas valve be located on the appliance?

When I used m oven a couple of days ago to bake a cake, it did reach the desired temperature but it took some time before it got to the desired temp. And it took a lot longer for my cake to bake.

Any help anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

    I have a similar to same problem. Broil appears to work, but bake does not. Bake will either just show 100 degrees and oven will not heat up or after broiling for a while and switching to bake, the oven will stay at that oven temp. Any suggestions?

I have a GE Spectra range/oven the oven will no come on and gives me a F4 error message, can you help?


Hi

F4 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My GE Profile Spectra oven is taking approximately 10-15 minutes to preheat to 350 degrees and does not seem to fully bake food as per instructions. It takes an extra 5 to 20 minutes to bake anything. ...


18 mins from room temp to 350 is factory standard,
you may need to calibrate the range, most now adays come factory set at -25 degrees for safety
depending on your model number in your instruction manuel should be a part about recalibrating it sounds like your about 25 degrees off

GE JGBP85WEB5WW - F7 / E9 Error codes


Hi there,

Well first of all you determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by-

1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.
If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
 
This error code means Function pad button stuck or Bad clock: Unstick button or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).
Post comments for more help or information........

Good Luck!!

GE Spectra XL44 oes not heat to desired setting


The oven sensor ( WB21X5301) is suppose to tell the oven control when to turn on and off to reach and maintain oven temp, but before you go replacing it, try to observe how long it takes from the time you turn the oven on to the time the oven ignites. Ignition should be 30 seconds to about 90 seconds. If it is taking a very long time, replace the igniter (
WB2X9154
). Ignitors get weaker over time, and this should be looked at first, as both parts are not real cheap, so you don't want to just start throwing parts at it. Here is a trick you can try: On the JGBP90 (model you posted under) the broil ignitor is the same part number as the oven ignitor, so if the broiler, which is generally used much less than the oven, is working fine you can interchange the two ignitors to see if that solves your oven temp problem without having to buy a oven temp sensor first.

Temperature control


sounds like a bad bake ignitor(uneven heat,long cook times, long preheat times, perhaps even gas smell while cooking)

im assuming you dont have to light the pilot.if thats the case and you replaced the ignitor assembly it could possibly be the ignition module/board.

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.

GE Profile Spectra JGBP85


Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
