Question about GE Profile JGSP48 Gas Kitchen Range

We lost power today and know my oven doesn't work.

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

Re: We lost power today and know my oven doesn't work.

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 back.

Loud pop from Range, stove top still works

The pop was a shorted wire.
The short drew sudden over-amp at breaker.
Amps = heat.
Breaker senses heat and trips before wire to oven is damaged, and before the arcing short can cause a fire.
Was the short at the element?
I don't know, but sounds like the circuit board was damaged.
Of course they are putting electronics inside all appliances today instead of old mechanical dial, because it's cheaper or so much prettier... but new appliances more vulnerable to surge, and other electrical failures. Which is true for all 240V appliances not protected by whole house surge protector.
To test element.
Remove element.
Use a continuity tester across the element connections.
If there is continuity, then the element is probably functional.
Use a multimeter across same element, set multimeter to read ohms.
240 Volt, 3500 watt element should be about 16 ohms.
4500 watt about 12-13 ohms
Volts squared divided by watts = ohms
57,600 divided by 4500 watt = 12.8 ohms

I would guess that the short fried the circuit board, but there is a also a shorted wire somewhere that is still bare and dangerous while power is ON and you are touching oven or stove, unless 240V breaker is GFCI or arc fault, which probably not. Especially dangerous if you are moving stuff around trying to find problem while power is ON.

turn the breaker off at the breaker box that controls the oven. it is usually a 2 pole 50 amp breaker. that will reset the oven and you will be able to use it in manual.

pf= power failure

if your reading pf it could mean that you have lost voltage to the clock
take the control panal off and check to make sure you have the proper voltage there as well,

if you have the correct voltage there you should not have an isssue with the display, check for any obvious burn, or disconnected
but it will also let you know if there is a problem with the pig tail connection.....

before you try anything though you may just need to reset the clock

if you have the single oven push cancel

I have the same problem. I bought it new in the fall of 2007. They replaced the control panel but that didn't help. Next they replaced the whole range with a new one, same model, still the same problem. They told me it was a problem with my electric in my house. Then they said it was a strange electro-magnetic field in my neighborhood and I would have to buy a different brand?
One time with the original stove the oven quit working and I had to re-set the breaker. Everything still works but the clock is always wrong.
We bought all Maytag stuff, including fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. The kitchen stuff is 4 years old. The washer and dryer are 3 years old. We have had this issue with the stove, the washing machine broke and they had to replace the whole drum assembly, and last week my refrigerator broke. Very disappointed with Maytag stuff.
So has anyone found a solution?

Recheck you breaker. Turn it off and then turn it back on a couple of times. There aren't any fuses in the stoves. If that doesn't work you'll want to call an electrician to check your plug and breaker. Good luck.Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks

Try turning the power off at the breakers.  There are two of them and they are usually dedicated to the oven.  Wait 2-3 minutes and turn back on.  If this doesn't clear it, suspect that the element has burned out.

Dacor oven will no heat.

The reset button is located near (probably behind) the latch that locks your door during sef clean. The reset is located in the middle a thermostat that looks like a round disc the size of a quater and about 1/4 to a 1/2 inch high with two wires, one on each side, plugged into it. Usually with a long thin screwdriver and the power turned off you can reset it with out having to take anything, or at least very little parts, off.
