Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

Mid 90's Magic Chef gas stove

I cannot turn the top burners on without turning the knob & using a lighter. The oven works fine, just the top burners have this problem. Having not lived in the house for long, I took the grates off & lifted the burners so as to clean under there since the previous owner never did. Since then, not only will the top burners not light as previously stated, but the two front burners don't burn as strong & after 10 secs or so I can smell gas. I know I seated them back onto the valve otherwise they would stick up from the holes unevenly. Can someone help me out with a DIY remedy?

Hi there,

since you can smell gas, you have a gas leak. i would recomend checking and cleaning the gas valves. if you can hear sparking, that means it's just the valves. sometimes cleaning the rods will fix the problem.

    the valves are located directly behind each of the burners. sometimes if the stove has not been cleaned for a while, you can get residue under the burner itself and it can end up anywhere. if you can supply me with the complete model #, i can send you the exploded view for better reference.

    no worries at all.



    here is the link to the exploded view, please have a look at page 9, item # 2.

How do i light a old magic chef stove


Hi,
If the stove is the one that I think that it is... you will have to lift the cover and then between the burners there will be a small orifice that you light... the pilot light will then light the burners when the gas is turned on to them...
