GE Profile Model P2S975SEM2SS Slide-In Range Temporarily Loses Power When Oven Used
Just a bit over six months ago we purchased a GE Profile Model P2S975SEM2SS Slide In Range and Oven from a nearby Sears Outlet here in Virginia as part of our on-the-cheap kitchen remodeling. It worked just fine until the last month or so when it began intermittently and temporarily losing power, occasionally shutting off whenever the oven was used, only to restore power after it had cooled down again, after which it all seemed to work fine for a time. Now this problem has become no longer just "intermittent." Now it seems that every time the oven is used, either convection or bake, it will begin heating up, showing the temperature's gradual rise on the control panel. After a few minutes, sometimes sooner, and before the desired temperature is reached, it seems there is a sort of low "whooshing" sort of sound from within that reminds me of a gas oven or furnace igniting, though it certainly could be something else. At the same time the readouts on the control panel seem to dim and then go black, along with all other electrical functions of the unit such as the oven light, range burner igniters and so forth. After a time (which varies, presumably according to the temperature that the oven had reached and its cooling down), the control panel will flash on all its displays in a sort of colorful Christmassy gibberish, sometimes a couple of times, after which just the clock will be flashing and the oven light and other electrical functions like range igniters will be restored.
Any ideas? I tried running it through a cleaning cycle a couple of weeks ago on the off chance that some sensor inside the oven might just be skoodged up by the buildup of greasy vapors, the cumulative revenge of the couple of hundred chickens that have been roasted within, but since then this problem has only become more pronounced (though the inside of the oven now looks squeaky clean). Now this weird temporary power outage thing happens pretty much every time.
Since we bought it less than a year ago, I assume it's still under warranty, and we could probably get a service guy out to look at it for free, but if it's something really simple...
Since this is my first posting to this forum, I really should take this opportunity to thank you all, since the advice and tips posted here already saved me a bundle patching up our old clothes dryer.
