Question about GE JGBP26 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Erratic Oven temp

The oven temperature is erratic. Oven won't hold at set temp. Sometimes it starts out OK and then falls off, other times it stays low.

I replaced the thermostat - no improvement.
I got out my multimeter and tested the resistance and voltage readings for the ERC on the wiring diagram and technical data sheet. All readings are OK.

No F errors appearing on the clock.

What's next?

Thanks.

Are you using any aluminum foil on the racks? This will interfere with the sensing capabilities.

THE OVEN TEMPRATURE IS NOT CONSISTENT.IT KEEPS BURNING FOOD.

Usually this is due to a bad temperature sensor. Sometimes it's due to a control board malfunction.

If you can get an accurate measurement of the oven temperature (which is not as easy as it sounds) you can do some diagnosis from the outside:

You need an accurate thermometer or thermocouple into a DVM. Make sure there are no obstructions in the oven (baking sheets, etc). Make sure you are measuring the temperature in the center of the oven cavity.

1. If the average measured oven temperature agrees with the display, the sensor is probably ok. The controller cycles the element on and off, at a rate that results in a correct average temperature. So you have to record the thermometer reading min and max over several cycles.

2. If the sensor seems ok from #1, it can be verified by disconnecting it and measuring its resistance. Should be 1080 ohms at 70F.

3. If the sensor seems ok, but the oven temperature is erratic, then it's probably a control board issue. We repair these at www.fixyourboard.com

Erratic oven temperature

The ignitor is probably weak and not relighting when it needs to. Replace the ignitor.

F1 code on display pad

That error means the main control board has a internal failure. The board will have to replaced to fix that issue. If you need detailed repair help with that visit the link below:

It was the igniter. The gas would go higher and then lower. The oven would take an hour to heat up. The new igniter did the trick. Thanks for your help and that link to the new part.
