Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

GE gas stove

I have a GE gas stove with oven problem. It will not heat food evenly and it seems that heat is escaping (almost feels like it is blowing) from the area right underneath the digital controls on the top of the stove. I don't know if this escaping heat is related but never noticed it before. Also before you could set the oven to the exact time stated on food cooking directions and it would come out perfect.. Now you have to cook extra time and food is not cooking evenly. Help!!!

Sounds like a bad bake ignitor(uneven heat,long cook times, long preheat times, perhaps even gas smell while cooking)as far as the heat from under the clock assy thats the normal vent( nedds to release heat somewhere, not a problem

pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

If you just purchase it or it is still under warranty take it back it going to cost the same to repair. You also run the danger of creating an electrical fire.

Your posted model is for an electric stove. Your question pertains to a gas stove. 2 things to look for: The most common of which is a weak ignitor. The second most common being a faulty sensor. Since you made no mention of a fault code I am going to assume the problem is the ignitor. For ignition to occur the gas safety valve has to release the gas to the burner. In order to do it the resistance on the ignitor must change. Over time the ignitor gets weak. One way to tell is by looking at it. It should be so bright you cannot stare at it very long. If it appears to be a dim orange AND you can bump the stove and sometimes get ignition then replace that ignitor.

Hot steam is blowing out of the vent below control knobs. None of the surface burners are on, but the oven is.


This is normal. There is an oven vent along the bottom of the operator console on most free standing ranges. It should mention this in your owner's manual. Its also a good idea not to store items on top of the stove when you are using the oven, because of the heat escaping the oven vent.

GE Gas Range Over Won't Heat


Hello, Yes this is going to be the bake igniter. If you remove the lower panel in the oven you will see the bake igniter. It may still be working when you switch on the oven but it is not getting up to the correct temp in order to ignite the gas. Replace the igniter and you will be all set. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck! Mike

With a gas range, I wouldn't fool with it. Get a service man out there now! Gas stoves are great untill they malfuntion and need a qualified service person to check it out. It's cheep insurance if there is a gas leek causing the problem. The alternitive-------!
