Question about GE JBP24 QuickClean Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

JBP24G broiler stuck on

If the range is plugged in, the broiler is on regardless of the oven setting. Sounds like a wiring problem or maybe something with the knob. Any advice as to what to check first and how?

    The model number reads "J BP24G W1WH".

    Two more nuggets of data:
    - Prior to this happening, the broiler would not turn on (for about the past 6 months).
    - I just flipped the circuit breaker back on to cook something on the stove and now the range is back to being off all the time. I do not, however, trust that it will stay off, so I will flip the breaker when it's not in use until I understand what's going on.

    Is there a relay that gets closed to turn on the broiler? If there is I'm starting to think that's the culprit.

    I bought the control timer assembly new on Ebay for $65. Installed in about an hour, which includes time to clean behind the stove (which hasn't seen the light of day in at least nine years). It was a breeze. For those who like detail, here's a blow by blow of what I did (and what tools I used):

    1. Removed power at circuit breaker and pulled stove away from wall.
    2. Removed back panel (adjustable crescent wrench).
    3. Documented what wires went where (digital camera) and inspected all connections for loose/broken/shorted wires (didn't find any).
    4. Removed oven knob.
    5. Removed old control timer assembly, leaving the wires intact (adjustable crescent wrench).
    6. Removed overlay from old control timer assembly, cleaned it and applied it to the new one. I used a putty knife to pry the overlay. There was still enough adhesive for it to stick on the new assembly.
    7. Installed the new timer assembly.
    8. Moved wires one at a time from old assembly to new. I will note that some of the terminal locations had changed, but the labels were the same.
    9. Restored power at circuit breaker and tested everything on the range. No problems.
    10. Removed power again, re-installed back cover, pushed stove back to the wall.
    11. Restored power and re-tested everything. No problems.

    Thanks very much for the help MNTECH!

    Could you verify model number, using model number sticker from range, usually on the frame just behind the lower drawer, on the left side.

I think you are right on with your relay comment. All the relays are an integral part of the control timer assembly (part number WB27X10215). Generally, you will be able to transfer the clock overlay from the old control to the new one, so no need to order the overlay. Not very difficult to replace.

Why doesMy GE gas range broiler and oven not ignite?

When my oven had this problem it turned out that the ignitors for both the oven and broiler had gone bad - yep, both of them. You can tell when an ignitor is bad if it doesn't glow as the oven is started.

I posted some pictures here (I think my answer is #10):
Check out this solution to the GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen...

Of course the design of your oven might be different but I suspect the repair would be very similar. Regardless, check to see if the ignitor is glowing.

My stove top and broiler work but my oven won't ignite. Could it be the glow bar?

It's a good possibility. The broiler and oven use separate igniters. So, if the broiler works, you don't have a gas problem. The surface igniters use an electrode via a spark module, so its a completely different ignition source.

No ignition in the oven is most commonly attributed to an oven igniter that is going bad. As these igniters age, they become weak and require replacement. The following link explains some theory behind how they work and how to replace one:

Replacements parts can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

Prices vary, so shop and compare.

NOTE: If the replacement igniter comes with a connector plug that does not match the one on your range, you will be instructed to cut the old connector plug off and splice the wires together using a set of ceramic wire lugs that are included in the replacement kit. DO NOT attempt to use standard wires lugs. They will melt due to the extreme heat in an oven. The ceramic lugs and the wires on the igniter are heat resistant.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Ge jbp24g oven turns on the off

The F4 is telling you the oven thinks it is too hot and not locked. Re-check your wiring to the control. The new control has two terminals reversed when compared to the old one.

GE gas oven won't heat

did you do it your self or did you have some one else do it for you? I ask the question because the electricity most be unplug before you do it, If any of those wires made contact or spark. Now the safety valve it's also bad, you can test that by putting a tester for the 2 wires that connets to the ignitor to see if you are getting any power when thermostat is on. if there is power replace ignitor, if not getting power replace safety valve. Or maybe your clock is set on automatic, Set it on manual.
