Question about GE Profile JGSP48 Gas Kitchen Range
I have tried the usual stuff. I reset the breaker even though it didn't need it. I also reset the GFI. I even reset the clock. Each of these did not fix the problem. I can turn on the broiler but the oven does not come on. Any ideas before I call out the repair man? Thanks, Jim
Jim, In reading your post I'm assuming the control panel is operational. According to the model number it is a slide in range. You need to remove the lower panel and the flame spreader in the oven and see if your ignitor is coming on. It will be attached to the rear of the burner tube. In order to open the gas valve it needs to draw at least 3 amps and a steady 3.4 to 3.6 amps during heating. If your handy you can test this with a clamp on ammeter. Ohming it out should show around 171K ohms. On this model this rectangular ignitor is not interchangable with the cylindrical generic ignitor, they draw different amperage and use different gas valves. This is not a hard job to do, just need to take your time and observe...Catriver..post back.
