My oven fails to get totally up to temperture. The ignitors works just fine. If I set the temp. select to say 350 degrees it takes forever like more than 1/2 hour or doesn't get there at all. If I set the temp for 500 degrees just to see if it will go higher than 350 degrees it got to 455 degrees over 45 minutes.

The oven was self-cleaned just 3 days ago with no problem. The broiler works with no problem.

Even the light bulb works. But it just won't get where it has to be temp wise.

Any suggestions? This stove is about 9 years old.

** GE XL44 Gas Stove/oven **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

** The ignitors works just fine. **

Which ignitors? For the surface burners or for the oven burner??

** oven fails to get totally up to temperture. **

If your oven uses a glow coil ignitor, what is it doing and also what is the oven burner doing?

You can read about the various types of oven ignition systems and how they're suppose to function at the following link:

most likely the igniter for the oven is getting ready to fail.
