Re: THE JENN AIR BOTTOM BURNER IN THE GAS OVEN IS BURNING...
Check that the bake ignitor is drawing min 3 amps. if not change ignitor. if its ok yellow flame is not enough air for the amount of gas. check the orface(small brass fitting on valve) hole to make sure its clean. if yes adjust air shutter on burner

You have to be careful when adjusting the flame because you can cause carbon monoxide issues. There are two adjustments. the orifice hood and the air shutter. the orifice hood when turned will adjust the flame amount and the air shutter will adjust the burning of the gas. the hood will be on the line feeding the burner usually on them safety valve and should be a 1/2 inch nut. The air shutter is the door like opening on the burner tube itself. Your flame should be a nice blue cone without any yellow and should not blow and walk off the burner.
Hello, Their is 2 possible things that are causing the oven to not heat.
1) the pilot burner is clogged with build up and not burning corretly...the standing pitol light is small and when the oven is turned on the pilot enlarges and heats a small bulb connected to a tube on a gas valve,if the pilot burner is clogged it will burn the small pilot but will not enlarge to heat that bulb so the gas will flow to the main burner.If that is whats happening the pilot burner needs to be replaced.
2) the pilot burner is properly heating the bulb connected to the above mentioned gas valve but that gas valve is bad and not opening once the pilot has heated the bulb..so in that case that gas valve would need to be replaced
This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.
Check voltage to gas valve in the back of the boiler compartment. It is way in the back on the left hand side, turn on the top burners. If you do not get any volts or only 1 to 5 volts you will need to replace, It is supposed to have 24 volts to operate correctly
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.
oven burner may have to much oxygen and the burner does not lite all the way around, there is a cap or a vent as the burner connects to the safety valve, close about quarter of an inch. or one of the holes on that burner is dirty and the gas does not past the gas all around the burner. you have to see whats happening by turning the oven on, but stay at a distance. and look at the burner when it first comes on. that will tell you the problem.
