Question about GE JGRP20 Gas Single Oven
When preheating oven, the flame burns nomally and then nearly extinguishes and that pattern repeats not allowing the oven to warm and the food cook properly. It take almost 1 hour to preheat the oven and when oven reaches cooking tempurature the food is taking to long to cook.
I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.
