Oven Problems Replacing the Igniter


If you have had the unfortunate experience of having the igniter on your gas oven go out at the worst possible time. Then you probably are also dreading the installation of the new igniter. Do not fear the replacement really is no that hard.

The first thing that you need to do is remove the racks from your oven.

Then look around at the back of your oven for the screws that hold the bottom pan down.

Remove those screws and remove the pan. Some need to slide back and then come up others will just pull up.

Remove the heat shield that is over the burner.

Remove the bottom drawer of your oven.

Now you should be able to see the igniter that sits on an angle by the burner tubes with a couple of wires coming out of it.

Removing the screws that hold the igniter is probably the most difficult part with some ovens. Sometimes it is easier to remove the whole bracket that holds the igniter and then remove and replace the igniter out of the oven.

The wires for the igniter will go to a Molex plug. Follow the wires and undo the plug. On many units it will be below the oven in the drawer opening at the top back. You will need to lay flat on the floor and reach back in to do this.

Once you have the old igniter out then you can carefully install the new one. Hopefully when you get it out of the box it will be in one piece yet. I had to get an igniter for an oven I worked on shipped three times before I got one that was not broken.
Any dropping or banging against anything will crack that igniter. BE CAREFUL!!

Check to make sure that you can feed the Molex plug and wires down through to the bottom before fastening the igniter.

Once the igniter is secured and the plug is connected, you can then replace the other parts in the reverse order that they came out.

This all sounds difficult, but really is not that hard. Even a first timer will have it done in less then a half an hour.

I just tried plugging my new oven in (model number jrp24) and my GFI flips. The oven is off and the wires are connected properly. I live in a country that requires 220v, even though the oven says 120/


The model number according to GE says this is an electric oven.
It states that this oven will only be Hard wired and not supplied with electricity using a Plug. If it is gas, only one leg of the 220 volt power will be utilized. and the other usually colored white indicating natural, or green indicating Ground. Or, there will be a switch like on all computers that you will simply move to the selected voltage of the country that you live in and this will correct the high or low voltage. I hope this helps, without the full model # I will not be capable of knowing the actual voltage that the appliance works with.

OVEN TRIPS OUT


Posted this several years ago. It's possible the oven sensor has gone bad or lost connection. Try cutting out the little plastic electric plug that connects the sensor to the oven wiring. Then hard wire it together with two small wire nuts.
If that doesn't work, you will need a new sensor, as we did. But when we installed it, we used the little plastic electric plug to connect it. Two days later it started acting up again.
The instructions said to hard wire it with two small wire nuts, but since it came with a plug it made sense to use it. Finally, even though it didn't make sense, I cut out the plastic plug and hard wired it. It's been about 3 years now and we've had no further problems.
THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THAT LITTLE PLASTIC ELECTRIC PLUG. YOU MUST NOT USE IT. HARD WIRE IT.

How do you know if your oven is hard wired in or plugged in if can't see it?


The wiring should go to a cooker switch box...usually found at the back of an adjacent cupboard or on the wall. This will usually have a large red switch with a power indicator light and a standard switched socket.
On most installations of seperate oven and hob...the hob will be hard wired to the big red switch and the oven will be plugged in to the standard socket. So switch the socket off and see wether your oven is off...if the oven is connected to the big red switch instead then it must be hardwired...

Whats the difference between a hard wire and a plug in for a oven


A "hard wired" oven means the 10 gauge (3 conductor with ground) cable from the main service panel (breaker box) is connected directly to terminals on the oven. A "plug in" oven means there is a wall outlet into which plugs a cable connected to the oven terminals. The plug on the cable would be very similar if not identical to the plug on the cable used on a clothes dryer.

I need to know the amps needed for this oven


If it is a single oven, then it can be plugged directly into a normal 13 amp socket.
If it is a double oven, then it will have to be hard wired, protected by a minimum 40 amp fused circuit.
