Question about GE Profile JGSP48 Gas Kitchen Range
I have owned this gas range for approximately two years. About 6 months ago the right, front stove igniter quit working. It does not click anymore in the LIGHT position. If I turn on the REAR burner to LIGHT, the rear burner igniter then starts clicking. If I then, turn on the front burner to allow gas through - the right, front burner then lights. Are these igniters removeable and replaceable? Or could it just be a matter or cleaning? Or is it an electrical problem? Please HELP! jp
Your problem is not the igniter itself, but the burner switch that controls the igniter. All the igniters get their power from one spark module that is mounted somewhere in back of the oven. That's why you are able to get all the igniters to spark with only one burner control turned on. This is normal. That is also why you are able to light the burner in question buy turning on another burner. The spark is being provided by a switch that is working. To answer your question: the igniter is removable, but I don't think it's necessary. Cleaning them generally doesn't make them work better. I would check the wiring from the spark module to the burner switch and/or replace the switch. I hope this helps.
