Question about GE Spectra JGBP30 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burners on a GE Spectra JGBP30 Gas range don't ignite

The igniter for the burners is not working. The range was recently moved, so it may have come lose. Where is the spark module located in this model? We cannot find it.

    Two of the burners are working, but the other two are not. I went to the parts store to buy two new ignitors and can't figure out how to replace them. The girl that sold me the parts said the she see's people come in all the time with broken tubes... so I want to be careful not to do anything. The range top doesn't pop up like my old one so it must be attached somewhere. I have removed all of the screw from all of the burners. Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Ge Spectra Xl44-three of 4 gas burners will not ignite without a match.


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Igniter clicks on the wrong burner


The spark supposes to go to all burners. The spark igniter of the non working burner needs to be replaced.

I have a GE JGB920 Gas Range problem. One igniter does not work. How do I change out the igniter?


Most gas ranges only have one ignitor (for the burners), so if one of the burners is not working, I would inspect the connection between the ignitor and the burner...not the igniter itself.

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?

The glow bar for the bake burner is bad, needs to be replaced. Remove oven bottom to get to it, and also the utility drawer.

Burner will not ignite.


facing the spark ignition, the burner has small holes that need to be clean, those holes are going down on the side of the burners, take a look a the ones that are working so that you can see the small flames going down facing the electronic pilot call the spark ignitiong, you can take a safety pin or a paper clip and clean them. many times the ignition is between the front and rear burners, it's where the spark ignite the burners.

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.

Resettle the small center tops on the burners. If even one is slightly off center or not level, a burner will not light, although it will click. Cost me a service call to learn this!
