Customer Questions & Answers

Does the glass window on the oven door stay clean over time?

For those of you who have had this range for more than just a few months and actually use the oven regularly-- can you tell me if the seal around the window on the oven door is secure enough to prevent any grease and soot from seeping between the glass panes where it cannot be cleaned. I am very concerned about being able to keep the window clean and clear as possible so that it looks good and I can actually see what I am baking even after the unit has significant use. Thank you for any input!
Asked by: EvergreenCO
Hello- This is Lisa from GE. The oven door has slots for air circulation. To prevent streaks from occurring, wipe out the excess grease from the oven before any type of long baking/roasting period or putting the range through a self-clean cycle. If streaks have already appeared between the glass, the only way to remove them is by cleaning between the 2 pieces of glass. This involves taking the door apart. Service is recommended for this procedure. This repair may or may not be covered if the product is in-warranty based on the technician's diagnosis. To obtain in or out of warranty repair, you may call GE Service at 800-432-2737.

what color is the unswept cooktop and color of cabinet sides?

Asked by: Anonymous
charcoal grey...almost black
Answered by: Maggie
Date published: 2015-11-07

My middle (oval) burner is stuck together -- I can't remove the black top part from the grey base. I'm not having this problem on my other burners.

I tried soaking it as recommended in the manual, but so far it's still stuck and the burner isn't lighting properly.
Asked by: Phila
Hello Phila, I am sorry for your inconvenience. The oval burner head and cap assembly are non-removable. The cap is permanently attached to the burner head. Clogged or dirty burner ports or electrodes will not allow the burner to operate properly. For proper ignition, make sure the small hole in the notch that fits over the electrode is kept open. A sewing needle or wire twist-tie works well to unclog it. I hope this helps. Thanks for checking! Lisa from GE

The igniter for the oven, broiler will not shut off once flame is established. Is this normal? If so why?

Seems like such a waste of energy. I have know other appliance that works in this way.
Asked by: airwebo8
Hello - this is Nancy at GE and I am happy to help you. The oven glow bar stays on during bake and broil as long as the flame is burning. When the oven reaches temperature, the flame and glow bar cycle off. (The glow bar is de-energized which causes the safety valve to close thus shutting off the supply of gas to the burner causing the flame to extinguish). If your range does not operate this way, we recommend contacting the GE Consumer Service to schedule an appointment. They can be reached at 1.800.432.2737, Mon. - Fri., 7:00 am to 10:00 pm, and Sat. - Sun., 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, EST. You may also schedule service online at: I hope this helps! Thank you for choosing GE!

5.0 cu. ft. Gas Range with Self-Cleaning Convection Oven in Slate is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost the perfect gas range... This is an almost perfect range. The design, color and features are all exactly what I was looking for. It's the small issues that keep it from being ideal. The biggest issues I have found over 3 years of using this for at least one meal a day are: 1) Center griddle burner has never really operated properly. I have checked all connections and thoroughly cleaned out the burner element itself and there is no great improvement. It will light 80% if I hand light it with a BBQ lighter but that's as good as it gets. 2) With repeated opening of the top end of the stove one of the gas lines has snapped. I had to figure it out by having the entire stove top burp flame from underneath due to a small leak that had occurred due to a minor crack in the line. When I lifted the lid again it cracked completely and I am now in process of ordering a new one. 3) Though this may have been an error in the installation there is a small release of gas each time the oven preheats. It stops after only a couple of minutes but it's enough to scare anyone using it who isn't familiar with the anomaly. It's possible that all these issues are a quirk of this particular unit and could potentially even be fixed - but they are issues nonetheless. Overall it's a fine range and has served us well. I even bought the matching fridge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent range. I had a very expensive Viking dual fuel range/oven for years, Nothing but heartache. Replaced thermostat three times in the first 6 months. At the end it was still 75 degrees off. After a year two of the four burner igniters stopped working. This GE is everything I wanted in a range and a very handsome design as well. The thermostat is right on the money and the various sized burners are very efficient and a very thoughtful design. It even has a clock with time set for baking. The old Viking didn't at more than three times the price. Installation took only 20 minutes by two very competent and knowledgeable persons. . .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HOT!! This is our first gas range so we're still getting used to it. We've had it for about a week and the main thing I can say is it's SO hot! It heats up everything really quickly (compared to an electric range). The convection oven will take some getting used to, we actually burned our pizza crust. We're really excited about the steam clean feature, although we haven't used it yet. We also like that this model will stay lit during a power outage. The sales person told us that most gas ranges don't have that feature anymore. We picked this particular range because we also like that the burners are all on one level, meaning there isn't a depression around each burner. This will make cleaning under the grates much easier. And for that matter there are only two grates to move, as opposed to four or more on other ranges. Having the whole top be one level means you can move pots anywhere on the stove even if they're not on a burner. We haven't used it yet either but we're also looking forward to using the oval griddle burner in the middle of the stove. It doesn't come with a griddle but you can purchase one and lay it over the oval burner. There's more flame on an oval burner than a round one. We had the range converted to propane, which was easily done. It comes with the conversion kit and we had our propane provider do the installation. Easy peasy! The only negative thing I can say about it is the bottom drawer for lids is very small. What you get in oven space you loose in drawer space. I find it mildly annoying because all my lids don't fit. Overall though, we're very happy with our choice and look forward to many years of cooking on this range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Has professional quality at great price This unit gave us everything we wanted (5 burners, convection oven, broiler, speed boil) all in a larger size beautiful oven/range. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this range!! This range is really nice!  love the color first and foremost and the burners cook so even.  I guess having replaced a 14-yr old range I didn't realize what improvements they have made.  I baked some cookies in it last night and they were all so evenly cooked and brown it was awesome!!    The control panel for the oven feels a little cheap to the touch but it works fine and hopefully will for a long time.  I love that these new gas ranges can broil inside the oven instead of having to practically sit on the floor like with my old one.  Where the broiler drawer used to be is now storage which is super super awesome!!!  Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The facts I have owned this range for almost one year. The slate color is difficult to keep looking clean without swirl marks. I have to go over it twice to eliminate those greasy looking streaks. The enamel is delicate and care has to be taken when removing and installing grates. The burners do not emit an inner ring and outer ring of flame as on a professional cook top. Consequently it takes longer to heat pans than an electric as the flame contacts just the outer portion of the bottom of the pot or pan. Boiling water takes extra time. Those are the cons. The pro is that everything has performed without any failures and the oven works fine. It is energy efficient compared to electric. I enjoy being able to immediately control the heat without having to move a pan while the burner cools as with an electric range. I believe the cons would be applicable to most any gas range made for homeowners. If you are a clean freak get a white one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good So far we are very happy with this purchase. It comes up to temp quickly and the power boil works well too. Haven't had a chance to use it in convection mode yet. One minor odd thing is the clock. The numbers sit too low in the window and you can only see it in full if your standing right over it. From any distance, you can't see the bottom of the numbers. Very weird and kind of annoying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase I've made in a while I've never used a gas stove before, but have been dying to get one. We purchased a new house and the bonus was I could easily convert the existing electric oven into a gas one from in the basement! After a lot of research, this was the chosen one and I'm so glad it was! I've had it for three months now and it's still very easy to clean, it gets very hot very quickly and I LOVE the convection feature. I won't ever want to reconvert back to electric because of this stove. The lower drawer space is kind of small, but it's big enough to fit baking trays, pizza pans and smaller cast iron skillets and grills for myself. The oven space is perfect as well. I haven't used the self cleaning features yet just because it's not dirty on the inside! The delivery guys were very professional and quick with the install. No complaints whatsoever with anything yet.
