My 14 year old GE Profile Spectra convection oven is not heating up properly. When on convection bake, it says it's up to temperature but things bake noticeably more slowly than they used to. If it's heated up and we turn off the convection bake and switch to convection roast, the oven temperature reads colder than it just did on convection bake by 30 - 40 degrees. It is also having the same kind of problem on bake, but not as great a difference (off by 10 degrees when we switch to roast).
I did a resistance check on the oven sensor assembly (WB21T10007) and it shows 1105 Ohms. I'm not sure what to try next.
Answer Mark, The oven temp. sensor WB21T10007 Is a great place to start. It is not uncommon for sensor resistance to be in range at room temperature , and become erratic at the higher temperatures, especially after a self clean cycle. When you cancel a cycle and reprogram another, The display will show the actual oven temperature based on the sensor input. Replace the sensor, and check for an average oven bake temperature and calibrate the control. The temperatures in convection bake or roast are automatically lowered by the control, so you'll get a slightly lower temperature (25 dgrs. less) when used on the convection settings.
My large cook top burner does not get hot? How do you check the coils under the top?
The best way to determine if the issue is with the burner would be to pull the unit out and take the control panel back off and turn the burner to the on position. Check between h1 and h2 for that burner switch to see if there is 240 vac. If there is proper power then the element is faulty. If not then the switch is bad.
The time and temp for GE electric range will turn on but the burners in the oven will not get hot.
Answer Hello Lisa! If you can run a quick ohm test on the elements and determine that both are showing resistance, the culprit to your issue could part number WB27T11311. Thanks!
