Broken Oven Thermostat...how much to repair?

attran99 Jul 16, 2010 01:04 PM

I think my oven's thermostat is broken. It's a 6 year-old GE digital controlled oven. Does anyone have any idea how much it would cost to fix this? I live in Southern California, just in case, there's a price difference based on location.
Thanks very much.

    Call GE and they'll tell you.

      We have a kitchen full of GE Profile stuff. We had them under a 5-yr warranty, and they covered them somewhat beyond that. Subsequently, we did have some problems with the range that had been caused by a power surge, and that the tech had to replace multiple parts to correct it, that the maximim charge for parts and labor for a range repair here in CT was $189. What was happeining was that when I would make pizza and set the oven to 550, the door would lock. He replaced the front control panel, the locking mechanism, the oven fan and the oven vent pipes. He said if that all did not work that GE would see that I would be satisfied. Alas, the repairs worked and I did not get my conduction range he was trying to get me.

        "I did not get my conduction range he was trying to get me"

        Who is "he"? The repairman?

          He said that if they were not able to fix it that GE would compensate me. He then was encouraging me to go for the upgrade. We had already paid for the repairs.

            Indeed, he said that if he could not fix it, they would "take care of us". Given that, the conduction would have probably been an upgrade, but one he was encouraging.
