Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven

Oven wont heat (igniter help needed)

Oven will not heat at all, broil works, and burners work, so I am assuming it is the igniter from following your advise to others. I have removed the bottom pan, and the igniter is attached to the manifold, but how do I remove it? I can feel two screws on the underside of it attaching it to a bracket that is holding it on to the manifold, are these what need to come off? And how will I know what part number it is? If it does come off, do the wires unplug from it, or do I have to follow them down into the oven, as they go beneath the oven floor pan? GE Spectra xl44

Thanks, Tim

    I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I used to receive email notifications when asked questions, but for some reason this feature isn't working at the moment. Do you still need assistance. If so...Yes, you need to remove the two screws you discovered. This holds the igniter to the manifold. The wires that run under the oven floor are either plugged into a connector, or secured by heat resistant wire lugs. A replacement igniter will either have a matching plug or instructions to clip the wires and use the heat resistant wire lugs (included). I need a model number in order to provide you with an accurate part number. The number will be listed on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door area.

Once again...I apologize for not getting back to you sooner. My email notification doesn't seem to working.

The part number for the bake igniter is WB2X9154. You can order a replacement part online at any of the following websites: searspartsdirect.com, repairclinic.com, pcappliancerepair.com or appliancepartspros.com. I recommend these sites, because they seem to offer the best service and offer competitive pricing. I would recommend checking all of them for the best price.

You do not need to remove the oven floor to access the connector wires for the igniter. Remove the lower drawer for access. Make sure you unplug the stove and turn off the gas before servicing. As stated before, the new ignitor may or may not have a matching plug to fit your range. If the connector does not match, there will be guidance provided with the new ignitor that instructs you to cut the wires and splice using heat resistance ceramic wire lugs. They should be included with replacement kit. DO NOT use standard wire lugs. They will melt. Let me know if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

My top oven won't reach temperature. Convection and broil work, bake doesn't. Over a year ago I did a self clean...hasn't worked since. I really need it to work especially with Thanksgiving next week.


It does sound like the element may be bad. The control will cycle the bake and broil elements to even the heat in the oven. if the element is out the oven won't heat well.

Maytag double electric oven. we turn on to bake and would switch to broil then will turn off.


Assuming this is on a gas range, the bake burner ( under the oven floor) and the broil burner ( at the top of the oven) have electric igniters . When switching from bake to broil the broiler goes off due to a defective or broken broil igniter. cheap part to replace ( +-$40.00)

Gs445lems wont ignite


The oven valve can be the problem if the coils in the oven valve are bad, even if only one side of the valve is bad the bake and broil will not work. If I remember correctly there should be somewhere around 50 ohms across the coils. if it is much more or much less this is probably the problem.

My oven wont heat up?


Hello there:
first chevck to see if the broil feature will work but if both the broil and bake feature does not work meaning it will not heat up if you have selected either the bake or broil follow these solutions that i have provided for you .
It won't bake or broil If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring. If the oven does not have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

I replaced what I thought was a bad igniter.But still had no glow from new igniter. Must be something else.Where do I go from here?


Hello there: The oven bake burner and ignition components are located beneath the oven cavity. In most cases the oven bottom panel can be removed for access (check your owner's manual) but on some models the oven burner has to be accessed from below in the warming or broiler drawer area. If accessing from the top, a 'flame spreader' (flat metal plate) above the burner may also need to be removed to see the burner itself.Many ovens use a single oven burner in which case they only have a single gas valve and ignitor. The same burner is used for both bake and broil functions, the broil usually being in the drawer area below the oven. Higher-end models may have a separate bake and broil burner. On such a system there will be two ignitors, one for each burner. They may also employ a 'dual' gas valve (see illustration above) instead of using a separate valve for each burner.Some range models may have an additional broil burner located at the top of the oven cavity which may be referred to as a 'waist high' broil. If not, broiling usually takes place in the drawer area below the oven, which uses the same bake burner for the broil function. Most gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a 'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition" systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system.


Making Observations
The oven burner's operation will usually need to be directly observed while in operation as the first step to troubleshooting problems.Ignition System Type Links
Ignition System Types:
  • Pilot Ignition
  • Electronic Ignition with Constant Pilot (rare)
  • Electronic Ignition with Glow Ignitor (most common)
  • Spark Ignition System

  • Is there continuity between the oven gas valve's terminals?


    Hot Surface ('Glow Bar') Ignition System (most common)
    This is the most popular system currently used for ovens and is comprised of a control mechanism (whether thermostat or electronic control), the oven ignitor and an oven gas valve.


    What happens in this style ignition system is that the thermostat or electronic control switches power to the oven ignitor and gas valve circuit which are connected in series (one after the other). As power flows through the ignitor it heats and draws current (measured in amperage). Once the oven ignitor draws a specific amount of current the oven valve opens to allow gas to flow to the oven burner where the glowing hot ignitor (glow bar) ignites it. Power must continually flow through the ignitor and oven gas valve for gas to be released into the oven burner to create a flame.

    It should usually only take in the area of 30-90 seconds for the oven ignitor to reach the proper resistance to allow the proper amperage to reach the gas valve to open it and for the ignitor to ignite the gas at the oven burner.

    GE Profile Stove baking option not working


    Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at www.fixyourboard.com.

    KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK


    Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
