SOURCE: GE Spectra XL Oven does not maintain oven temperature

I have the exact problem. We had the ignitor replaced 2 already and it works for 18 months and stops. Occasionally, it the oven won't even start to heat. I am ready to throw it out.

SOURCE: my gas oven flame

the flame failure device( FFD) may have malfunctioned,not allowing full volume of gas through to the burner.This is a safety feature, preventing full gas pressure to the oven straight away.

SOURCE: Oven lights ,but doesn't heat to preset temperature

The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

Oven Pre-heats too high


Your oven sensor has gone bad and telling the control board/thermostat to keep heating. Find the model number on the range and go to a parts distributor like repairclinic.com or apdepot.com and order you sensor. This is an easy repair.

I got an error code F2


Error F2 mean-Oven temperature is too high 1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.

Kenmore SF367.....Contantly relighting during cooking?


This is a normal function of your gas range. I own a similar model and it operates the same way. The gas is not required to be on continuously to maintain the oven temperature and will relight periodically when the internal temperature drops below the prescribed set level.

Fitting


Not familiar with this particular range oven but the thermostat should look like a longinsh cylindrical closed end metalic tube. You may have to raise up the cooking surface to run the wires for a new thermostat. If your oven is cooking to high or too low you can try taking the bake temp control off the know and see if there is a fine adjustement for temperature. I use a temp probe with a very inexpensive Sears DVM (about 20 bucks at Sears) to adjust mine. You should give the oven a good 1/2 hour to heat up and another 1/2 hour between each adjustment. Remember, the oven temp will swing high and low to maintain the set temp. Hope this helps!
