Range and Wall Oven WiFi Connect - Starting Your Oven Remotely

The Remote Enable feature on WiFi Connect wall ovens and ranges allows you to start your oven remotely by using the Kitchen - GE Appliances app on your smartphone, or hands-free control using Geneva, GE Appliances' voice assistant, with Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant*.

The appliance needs to be connected to your home network before using the Remote Enable pad. For help getting Connected, visit: Range and Wall Oven - Set Up Built-In WiFi Connect

To start the oven remotely:

  • You must first press the Remote Enable pad on the control panel or turn the knob to Remote Enable (on some wall ovens). You cannot start the oven remotely without first engaging Remote Enable. Consult your Owner's Manual for directions. Download a copy of the Owner's Manual.
    • This step ensures the safe operation of this feature so that nothing flammable is placed in the oven (other than the food) after enabling this feature and before cooking has started.
  • Once activated, "Remote" will be lit in the display and the oven can now be remotely started through the Kitchen - GE Appliances app or by using Geneva, GE Appliances' voice assistant, and Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.
  • Remote Enable turns off when the cooking cycle ends, you open the door, or if you cancel the feature. We recommend pressing the Remote Enable button each time you turn off the oven (or remove your food) so this feature will be ready for remote use the next time you need it.
