GR Gas Range Preheat Light Flashing When Oven Is Off


  • GR Series Ranges displays a rapid flashing Oven Call for Heat Light while the unit is in an idle mode (off)
  • Oven indicator light flashing when unit is off
  • Electrical noise causing preheat light to flash
  • Light blinking when oven is off


  • Electrical noise


  1. Verify electrical noise is not causing the issue.
    • Electrical noise in the home, usually lighting dimmer switches, can cause the Call for Heat Light to flash.
    • Electrical noise is defined as any unwanted electrical signals which produce undesirable effects and may be produced by unwanted voltages or currents.
    • Such effects may be imperceptible and may affect performance or cause damage.
    • An electrician may be needed to verify electrical noise in the home.
  2. The oven is safe to use until this problem is repaired.
  3. If service is needed, the service technician may need to electrically isolate the unit.


If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
