Tip & How-To about GE JGRS14 Gas Single Oven

Replacing igniter

GE wall ovens have panels for regulator and ignitor wiring at the lower back of oven. remove all screws and plates to expose wiring. clip off defective igniter and use ceramic wire nuts to fasten new one. re-assemble.

I learned from local gas company that igniter is most frequent part to replace.

cost = $35

GE technical support = non-existent.

power of the internet - priceless!

kenmore digital oven model 79095321303 temperature is wrong. Digital display on oven says 350 degrees but oven thermometer placed in center of oven (middle rack) shows 200 degrees. When I up the temperature to 475 degrees, oven thermometer says about 350. I have been noticing my baked goods have been taking a longer time to bake and my electric bill is skyrocketing. Can I fix this myself?


It could be one of two things either the control board or the temperature probe and I suspect the probe and that is a do it yourself job.

The oven temperature sensor on your Kenmore range is a one-piece unit that mounts to the rear oven wall with a mounting plate. The sensor is not difficult to change. You will need to dismantle the rear panel from the oven to access the mounting plate. Most appliance repair shops will have replacement sensors. It is a good idea to take the old sensor with you along with the model number of your oven. This way you will be sure to get the correct replacement sensor for your oven.

  • Unplug the Kenmore oven power cord from the wall outlet. Move the oven range away from the wall so that you can access the back of the unit. (Ask a friend to assist you to move the oven. if necessary.) The oven may use an anti-tip bracket on one of the rear legs. Push the oven toward the back wall to release the leg from the bracket in the floor. Tilt the back of the oven toward you, and pull the oven forward.


  • Remove the screws that secure the back panel to the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the back panel away from the unit and set the panel out of the work area.

  • 3

    Locate the mounting plate for the oven temperature sensor on the upper right side of the back of the oven. There will be a single wire coming from the back of the mounting plate and the wire mounts to a clip.

  • 4

    Follow the wire to the connector on the other end. Pull the connector on the wire to disconnect the wire from the wiring harness.

  • 5

    Remove the two screws that secure the mounting plate to the rear of the oven with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Pull the temperature sensor straight out of the oven. Unclip the sensor wire from the mounting clip.

  • 6

    Take the oven temperature sensor to an appliance repair facility to purchase a replacement. Insert the sensor end of the temperature sensor through the hole in the back of the oven. Slide the sensor all the way until the sensor mounting plate is flush against the oven. Secure the sensor with the two mounting screws.

  • 7

    Connect the sensor wire to the connector by pushing the connector until it locks in place. Snap the wire inside the retaining clip.

  • 8

    Place the back panel back over the rear of the oven and secure the panel with the retaining screws. Slide the Kenmore oven back into its working position and plug the power cord into the wall outlet.

    where is the oven igniter located at in a Frigidaire single gas oven located if I need to replace it?


    remove the oven racks, in back there will be two chrome screws, remove them. Lift the lower oven panel out by pulling up from the rear. Remove the screws holding the flame spreader and remove the flame spreader. Now you will see the burner and igniter attached to it. There are 2 quarter inch hex screws holding the ignitor on. GE likes to put them on an angle, so it is easier to remove the burner tube. Remove the bottom drawer and remove the screws securing the burner to the back wall. There should be one in the front too. The burner will now lift up and you can get at the screws. The new ignitor should come with ceramic wire nuts. Just cut the old igniter, strip the ends of the wires going to it and wire nut the new one on. Reverse the rest of the steps. There is also a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that walks you thru testing this part. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations.
