To troubleshoot a GE Spectra electric stove, attempt a hard reset, inspect the fit of the surface unit and drip pan, check the display screen for error codes and allow the appliance to cool before activating the QuickClean feature. If the problem persists, contact a GE repair technician.
If the stove is not operating or the clock and timer are non-functional, perform a hard reset by unplugging the appliance and firmly plugging it back into the outlet. Also, check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker that may be causing the problem. Allow the device to cool completely after turning off all controls, and pull out the surface unit before firmly pushing it back into place. Ensure that the drip pan fits securely beneath the burners.
If the display reads "linE" or "bAd," contact a qualified technician or electrician for repairs, or attempt a hard reset if the display shows a reading with "F" followed by a series of numbers. If this error message appears during a self-cleaning cycle, try cooling the appliance, re-latching the lock and starting the cycle again after one hour. The self-cleaning feature does not operate if the oven's temperature is too high or the oven is unlocked. If there is excessive smoke during a self-cleaning cycle, stop the oven by pressing Clear/Off, and wait for it to cool before checking the oven for food spills.
