Question about GE Spectra JBP78 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven and lights stopped working

I just went to bake a cake and my oven isn't working. The top burners heat up but the lights aren't working. There seems to be a short in the light indicators for the burners. There is a slight flicker to them.

    I have a similar model (JBP68) with a similar symptom. My clock and oven quit. The only lights that still work relate to the stove top (elements) which still works.

Is it the indicator lights at the top or just everything in the oven that is not working??

If it is just the light in the oven and the oven not heating then you are having a problem with your control board.

I have a Kenmore electric smooth top range that I cannot use the oven on.


it sounds like the clock assy. cooked or there's a shorted wire somewhere,did the bake element crack or short out?this also can take out the clock assy.if the part is 150 dollars that 's not bad,some of them cost 300 or more.good luck with your oven,also you should have an electrician come in and put the stove on it's own electrical line.

Oven problem, it tries to ignite, but won't


It sounds like the igniter isn't lighting the flame, or the flame isn't sensing once lit. Check the burner to see if anything has fallen onto the burner or electrodes to prevent it from working. Also check the holes on the burner to see if they are blocked. If it is all clear it may be a control box issue.

Hello Kevin,
That sounds to me like a cracked bake igniter. One way to tell if its the igniter and but a problem with the burner is use bbq lighter and try to light the bake burner, If it does light using the bbq lighter it will be the igniter. Also ya could remove the igniter from the bake burner and see if their is a visible crack in it.
If it does turn out the igniter needs to be replaced,the part number is 9758079 thepart can be picked up from yoor local appliance parts store or online at;

Oven with convection - when baking cookies, cakes, etc they aren't getting done. Bottom and middle is soggy. Both coils look to be heating, convection fan is working.


Set the temperature one position higher. Convection ovens have a more even heat spread so if you used to bake at the top of your old oven it will now be slightly lower temperature

Bosch HGS442UC Gas Oven won't light


Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.
if this helps please vote me a fix ya
