The GE ovens are known to be the best ones out there. There are electric as well as gas models available.
In addition, they have induction technology, along with convection and warming drawers. For the most part, their ovens work great but there are common GE profile oven problems that we are sharing everything with you. In this article, we are outlining the common problems as well as the solutions!
GE Profile Oven Problems
1) The Burners Are Heating But Oven Is Not
When it comes down to the GE profile ovens, the burner issue can cause issues in heating and the oven won’t operate properly. In the section below, we are sharing the troubleshooting methods!
In case you are using the gas model and the oven won’t head even if the burners are heating, there are chances that the shutoff valve is closed. In the majority of cases, the valve is mistakenly closed while moving or cleaning the oven. For this reason, you have to pull the oven since the shutoff valve is usually on the backside. In some cases, the shutoff valve is available behind the storage drawer, so locate the shutoff valve and switch it on.
If there are heating issues, there are chances that the oven controls are not properly set up. For this reason, you must switch on the cooking mode. You will need to choose the cooking mode according to the type of food that you are cooking. So, just press the suitable button on the display panel and select the temperature. When the cooking mode and temperature are set, press the start button!
If your GE profile oven is warming up but is not reaching the set cooking temperature, you have to tweak the temperature settings. Generally, you need to adjust the temperature by 35-degrees.
If all the oven parts are working properly but the oven is still not heating up, you might have switched on the sabbath mode. If this mode is enabled, the sound and lights of the oven will be switched off and you will be able to use only the bake mode. To disable the sabbath mode, you have to switch off the oven, press the broil, and bake pad for three seconds.
As a result, the special features menu will appear and you’ve to choose the delay time button until 12 Shdn appears. Once it appears, just press the start button and you will be able to switch off the sabbath mode.
2) Inaccurate Temperature
Whenever the bake element is working properly, it will have a hot red color. If the bake element is not working, you need to replace it. To be sure, just use a multimeter to check the continuity of the bake element.
The igniter is responsible for drawing electrical current from the gas valve. However, the igniter is likely to weaken over the course of time and will impact the temperature settings. For this reason, you must change the igniter of the GE oven to ensure accurate temperatures.
If there are inaccurate temperatures, it might be because the broil element has burned out. For this purpose, you have to check the broil element for blisters and holes. You must use a multimeter to check the continuity of the broil element and replace it in case of continuity issues.
3) Temperature Control Thermostat
The GE ovens are designed with temperature control thermostats that are responsible for monitoring the oven temperature. If the thermostat isn’t properly calibrated, the heat cycles will be impacted. As a result, the oven temperature will go too high or low. To fix the thermostat, you must call a technician for replacing or calibrating the thermostat.
4) Light Is Out
When the GE profile oven stops giving out light, there are small factors that need to be considered, such as;
- Light assembly – the first thing to do is to check the light assembly and replace it. To replace the light assembly, call the oven technicians
- Light bulb – in case the light assembly is fine, you need to check the light bulb and see if it has burned out. It’s best that you replace the bulb and use a new one
- Light socket – in case the light is still not switching on, you have to check the light socket because it might not be getting the power. You have to call the technician and let him check the light socket (if there are defects, it must be replaced)
