GE Oven Intermitant Failure

6 posts in this topic

Three years of intermitant oven failure, Xcel energy has corrected low (110v back to 120v)  Minnegasco verified 6 pounds pressure at range intake. Several service calls from GE to replace the oven temp sensor, glow bar, thermo couple, igniter and various modules, pilot assy cleaned along with adjustments.

Is this brand of oven just crap?  Is it time to get a replacement oven from GE? Or?

Sincerely, fed up,

Dave

The GE oven  was our choice for a  former  Whirlpool Model # SF387PEYQ4.  Oven would never operate at at true 350 degrees, after  Self Cleaning feature was used. 

The first thing the tech said was NEVER use the self cleaning feature.  The oven(S) were not desinged for this high of heat .  Also, after using the self cleaning feature, the whole top of the oven was scorched a dirty looking yellow.

G.E makes a very dependable range  from what i have read you are using propane ?  sorry it appears to me that you have a natural gas unit   i see where you have had service on this unit but it makes no esnse / get your fuel supplier to check your unit .

If my fuel supplier isn't delivering 6 pounds pressure at the intake per the technical staff at GE the oven won't work.
