    Same problem, GE Spectra. Burners all working, no action at all with the oven - although the oven light says it's on. No gas goes the oven.

    We have the same problem: Burners and Broiler work, Oven Bake does not. When the burner comes on, we hear gas, the igniter lights up, and the broiler eventually ignites. However when the "bake" function is turned on, there is no light, no sound of gas, and no ignition. Is this a DIY fix?

    Same problem - burners work fine. Oven "on" light comes on but no gas flow and no flame.

    The burners work, but the broil and bake functions just stopped working.

    we have a Spectra xl 44. Oven won't light. Everything else works.

    Seems like GE has a problem here.

    What is the fix for this? I'm doing this myself.

What is "the board"? and is this replaceable by a fairly competent user or does this require a service call? Thanks!

My spectra stove's oven is not working, the burners work, the broil works, but my oven will not heat up


The JBP78 is electric, since you are talking about a gas oven I think the model is incorrect.

Talking about a gas ovens:

If the oven is not heating up and both broiling and baking burners are working and coming up then check the temperature probe sensor and the control board.

If one of the two burners is not firing check the ignitor, the burner and coil, the burner and flame sensor. The most common problems come from defective ignitor.

I have a JGBP30 gas range and the oven does not. Someone checked it and said the main control is bad. Is there a manuel that I could get or is there any way I could check it, before ordering a new...

Does the oven ignitor "glow" when turned on but no flame appears? does this model have an actual broil burner ? or does it just have a broil drawer at the bottom ? If it has a broil burner up top of the oven, does it ignite ? It could be the clock/timer, but rarely. If the "bake" ignitor glows, but the burner doesn't ignite, or ignites slowly and/or a "sputtering" flame, replacing the bake ignitor should solve the problem.

good luck

No broil or oven cook top works

try checking the ignitor or the thermostat in the oven.

Lower oven burner will not light.

Hi I have a older GE that the oven won't light. It is a gas range that is electric ignited. The top burners do work but the oven will not light. Is it pricey to have this fixed?

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak.  You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor.  If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.

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.
