Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

We have a gas stove Model #JGB920SECSS that is out of warranty. The 2 ignitors on one side of the stove would click but not spark. We called an independant repair man and he identified the problem. The wiring insulation was eaten away, probably by mice, and he ordered a new wiring bundle. When he received it and went to install it, one of the screws holding one of the burner switches on the front panel was frozen and he couldn't get if off and, as a result, he couldn't replace the wiring. What can I do short of calling for a technician who would probably have the same problem?

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

GE JGB920sec2ss: Igniters dont light up burners


Hi,

First look to see if the ignitor is coming on. Most common problem is the ignitor is weak or just bad.
When the power is applied to the ignitor it glows and builds up resistance to open the gas valve then it lights. If the ignitor is weak or bad it will not build up enough resistance for gas to come into the burner.
One sign of this would be a "woosh" sound when it trys to light. If the ignitor is coming on but not lighting it is most likely the ignitor is bad.
Should have a full glow. Also, if the ignitor looks whiteish in color this is a sign of it going bad. You can compare to the broil ignitor to be sure.

If you have any other problems please ask me..
Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

How do I access a spark ignitor on a Viking gas


I am assuming your referring to the stove top burner ignitor. Well - I can only say on my Viking 48 inch - it was located at top RHS of the stove on the 'back wall'. I was advised by a 'tech' that it would be located at the back of my stove (ie he would have to pull out the built in unit and would cost me 500$). In fact I replaced the unit in 30 minutes ... I removed the two RHS burners (one screw each), disconnected ignitor wires, removed the bracket holding the burners (one screw), followed ignitor wires to silver box covering the ignitor unit (2 screws), opened it & replaced ignitor. Forgot to say - 1st thing I did was turn off power & gas to the range. Of course you need to ensure it is the correct one for your stove. The ignitor you remove should have a manufacturer part number on it. No calibration required on mine - a sealed electronic unit. Probably about 10 wires that need to be R&R'ed - they are on with reuseable fasteners.

The spark ignitor needs to be replaced. You can get it at your local appliance repair store or online at repairclinic,com. That is the way it tells you that it is bad by constantly clicking

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
