Question about GE Spectra JGBP35 Gas Kitchen Range
If I push any of the Bake/Broil/Clean buttons on the keypad there's no response. Needless to say, you can't set a temperature and none of those functions work. Cook time and stop time buttons work and you can set the times, but of course no cooking is done, and the unit starts beeping a few seconds after those times are set. Clock and timer functions work, and increase/decrease arrows work for those functions. Stovetop burners work fine.
Circuit board repair is your only alternative to shelling out $200 for a replacement. Take the control box out of the stove and remove the top board, which is just relays and interface connectors to the AC power and bake/broil burners. Under this is a complex circuit board, also to be removed. You have to unbend tabs to do these removals, and make sure that all the inter-board connector pins are properly mated when reassembling and rebending tabs. On the underside of the circuit board I found corroded spots under each of the 3 electrolytic capacitors on the board. Very suspicious. I replaced the caps and had to patch two traces on the board with jumpers, and this fixed the problem! You may as well try this (or have a nerdly pal try it) since you have nothing to lose and possibly $200 to save.
