My problem with GE Spectra XL44 gas range/oven is that I cannot raise the temperature setting to higer than 350 degrees. The digital control for raising ("+" button) numerical settings doesn't seem to be working, either for clock adjustment or for raising temp setting. When I press "BAKE" button to use the oven, I see the temp setting at 350 degrees. As I press "+" button to raise the temp setting to say 400 degrees, The "+" button simply does not cooperate and I cannot raise the temp setting. I have no problem lowing the temp setting by pressing "-" button, though. In short, the "+" button seems to be DEAD!!
Puzzeled, usually when there is a stuck or shorted keypad there will be an error code. First let's see if we can tell if we are in Centigrade or Ferenhiet. Press the bake and broil button together for 2 or 3 seconds. SF should appear in the display. Press the broil pad again and C or F will be displayed. Toggle to F and press start. See if that was the problem. If not try to increase the speed of the + and - keypads. Press bake and broil together for 2 seconds until SF displays. Press the + keypad increase the speed of the control. It should toggle from 1 to 5, 5 being the fastest. Press start and see if that works. If niether works..then have someone remove the keypad ribbon cable from the control board and clean the ends with an eraser. See if that solves the issue...Catriver..post back and let me know.
