Customer Question

I have a GE gas range. The oven does not heat properly. I''ve replaced the sensor already. The digital control indicates the temp rises from cold to 400°f in about 1 minute.

Hi Bryan, the range is model JGSP21GER2WH. When I removed the sensor (and replaced it), there was a piece of burned & melted wire stuck to the external end of the sensor, behind the mounting flange. It was definitely *not* one of the sensor wires, nor was it one of the oven light wires ('cause the light still works!)

Is it possibly the ignitor/glow plug? How might I test that?

hi I'm back. well it could be a wire that runs to ignitor . can you see where wire goes? I would try to get stove out a bit (be carefull make sure gas is off) take back off oven and find where this wire goes . you can see wiring from back . replace wire or if theres enough wire cut out bad part and splice it back together and try it. let me know. thanks again Bryan , feedback is welcome and appreciated. thanks again
