JGBP90 gas range - precise simmer burner won't stay lit

The "precise simmer" (back right) burner will often light and then inexplicably go out within a few seconds. HOWEVER, the gas is still flowing which has caused a hazard on many occasions. I know now to sit and watch the burner for a while after lighting to make sure but this still causes me concern for when others are cooking or if I might forget. We bought this new home after it had been on the market for quite some time. The warranty had already expired by the time we moved in. Now, GE doesn't even sell this model. Advice?

Check the "Orifice Spud" to be sure that it doesn't have a partial blockage.

SOURCE: ge spectra gas stove top not lighting

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:

  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

SOURCE: whirlpool electric range burner power light stays on but no heat

Hello givemeanidth.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, have a Whirlpool electric range (model rf363pxpt0) with standalone burners - the burner power indicator light stays lit whether the heat control knob is on or off, there is no heat coming from the burner on or off. You pulled the burner from the receptacle and one of the tabs broke off and stayed in the receptacle. You removed the tab and made sure no pieces remained in the receptacle then bought a replacement burner, no change. You put the replacement burner in the back burner of the same size and had heat within 10 seconds. You changed out the burner with the one that had been in the back of the range, no heat. As long as the breaker to the range is on the power light stays lit but no power to that one burner only.

What is the model number and the age of your range?

Waiting for your reply.

SOURCE: Oven and broiler will not light.

You've probably done this by now since your message is May (makes us a May-December couple??) but wanted to write that the transformer that produces the park for ignition has failed.  I don't know how accessible it is in your unit, if you check on Sears website under Parts with your model # in hand, they could well have an illustrated breakdown of your range which would give you an idea of how difficult the replacement might be.

SOURCE: pilot blights wont stay lit on older model American gas range

Take a very small wire and clean out the pilot holes. Then find the pilot flame adjustment screw and re-set your pilot to 1/4 inch flame.

Oven burner won't stay lit


Often it is is easy is getting a welding tip cleaner or ven the end of a paperclip in a size that matches the holes on your gas burner. Simply gently push and pull the welding tip cleaner paper clip or even wire in any of the holes that appear blocked. I had the same problem with my burners. I found a paperclip that matched exactly the size of the holes on my burners I simply push the clip into the holes to clear them. Runs like new now.

Burner will not stay lit. Push in knob-- flame starts, but will not stay lit as soon as you take pressure off of the knob, no matter how long you hold the knob in. Also, on other burners, I cannot reduce...


I never even saw one of these babys. Wow what a stove. The simmer issue might be fixed by removing the knob and seeing if their is a minimum flame adjustment in the stem of the gas valve. The non lighting issue could be some sort of flame sensing device not recognizing the fire is lite, you could try holding in on the knob a little longer to allow the flame sensing device to pick up OR get a brush and clean around the ignitor. She sure is a beauty. The constant ticking is usually a stuck spark switch.
To find the one that you suspect is stuck you must remove a wire from each switch till you find that one

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    Simmer is to hot


    I am hesitant about answering your question because if the flame is adjusted incorrectly it could be dangerous.
    Remove the knob and look inside the stem of the gas valve. You will see a very small adjustment screw. This is where you adjust the flame for the burner.
    What I usually do is light the burner and turn it to the lowest setting. Hold the stem in this position and turn the screw. They are usuall kind of stiff to turn.
    You want to adjust the flame so that it just comes to the top of the burner cap at the low setting.
    This is the important part!!!
    When you have got the flame adjusted, put the knob on and turn the flame to high. Quickly turn it from high to low, if the flame goes out, adjust it higher. Repeat this test until you can turn it from high to low quickly and it stay lit.
    Also important to remember. When turning the screw, a little turn goes a long way.
    Post back if you have any questions.
