Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****, i need help trouble shooting. I have a 48 inch duel monogram range. It takes for ever to heat up, then once i start opening the door to switch pans the temp will go from 400 to200 and then takes time to reheat. Yesterday it didn't reheat up at the end. My door seems to not close tightly anymore. I also had a repair guy check my heating element and its fine. I had a guy switch the thermometer from the small oven to the large oven cause i was told thats probably the problem. Fully expecting the smaller oven not to work after switching the parts. They both still work, so its not the thermometer. Also I am not sure what finally turns the heating element on. Me playing with the buttons from convection, broil and bake thus and electrical problem in the switches, or me holding the door more . Finally, I did self clean before the Holidays. I self clean maybe twice a year. we have an older model, about 10 years, and I have never had any of these problems before. I do about 4 hours of cooking in it every week on Wednesdays cause I have small business. I am guessing a professional range like this should be able to handle that

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

How well does the unit work with both ovens on at the same time?

In the past they seem to work. Last night after the large oven wouldnt heat back up i resorted to turning on the small unit and it worked. Meanwhile I gave up on the large one

Sorry. I was called away from my computer. I think you may have a gas regulator problem, if you have one in your gas supply line. Will you please check it out for me?You should find the gas regulator behind the range. If you do, please describe it for me.

Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 2 years ago

Is the range electric or gas operated? In reading the conversation thus far, I'm not certain.

Dual fuel
Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 2 years ago

OK, thank you. Will you please check to see if you have a gas regulator in your gas supply line, and, if you do, please describe it for me. Thank you.

Let me clarify, the dual fuel means my stove top is gas and my oven is all electric
Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 2 years ago

OMG! I must have been asleep when electricity was declared a fuel. OK. Please allow me to reconsider your problem, and I'll get back to you.

I now realize that I don't see the brand name or model number for your range. Will you please send them to me?

GE monogram 48 inch range zdp48n6rd1ss.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
John, I also noticed on this web site there were repair guys who have worked for decades with GE appliances. Maybe you can consult with one of them. They might be familiar with this issue.
Appliance Technician: John, restaurant equipment technician replied 2 years ago

I see now it's a dual range, not a dual fuel appliance. This makes me happy, since I realize that electricity is still just mysterious energy. Now back to the business at hand. I've seen the symptoms you're describing caused by excessive heat and wire damage at the element connections. In these cases, the element will look fine and check out continuity wise, yet fail to heat properly or not at all.

Have someone visually inspect the element wire connector condition. If there's evidence of over heating or a wire burned off, rewire the connectors, using high heat terminals.

If you need further assistance, please get back to me.
