Re: ge oven jpbp90

Ted, you probably have a bad ignitor. If you have a meter, you can do some checks to rule out the board. Take the back top panel off and on the board you will see four wires..from left to right they should read L1, neutral, broil and bake on the board. Broil and bake will be marked as BR and BA. Set the oven to 350 and press bake, you should have 120V from BA to Nuetral. If so your board is ok. You should also hear a click after pressing bake. 90% of the time it's the ignitor, part number WB13K0004. Be care when testing with live power. back.

Tappan 32-1272-10/07056-8509-4080 gas range/oven pilot light works,main oven burner won't come on

You will need to look and see if the igniter is glowing a bright red. If it is weak, the oven will not light. Here is the igniter if you need to order it.

Also check and make sure your getting 3.2-3.6 volts AC to the valve.

I have a GE Kitchen range XL44, stove top burners work fine, but oven won't light??? HELP please

Unplug the range.
Remove the oven racks.
remove the oven base pan.
remove the flame spreader pan.
remove the glow bar ignitor on the left hand side of the gas burner and replace it with a good ignitor.

Put in a new ignigter for the oven. the ignigiter lits up but the oven doesnt light its a GE gas oven. the top range is fine and the broiler works fine

If you don't hear/smell gas when the ignitor is lit, then the gas valve is stuck. Tap on the gas valve (I usually use my 10" Knipex pliers). Be careful not to touch any electrical contacts and not to cause gas leaks. If not sure - use something made of plastic. ;)

GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot

The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.
