Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
The 4 gas stove burners work fine. The broiler and lower oven burner will not start. The broiler "glow plug or ignitor" heats up but the lower one does not. Is this the problem and how do I replace it?
The fact that the igniter on the broiler actually begins to glow rules out your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Usually when both oven features fail to work the EOC, or wiring, is the culprit. But...in your situation, the broiler igniter glows, but the bake igniter doesn't. You don't see this happen very often, but I believe you may have two bad igniters. The following link explains how to replace an igniter and gives you some theory behind how they operate:
Although an igniter glows, it still may be bad. This is usually dependent upon the age of the stove and the frequency of use. Usually, the bake igniter burns out first, because it is used more often. These igniters also grow weak with age. Which means, if they do not draw the required current necessary to open the gas safety valve, you will not have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven box before ignition. I would recommend replacing both igniters to see if this corrects your problem. If you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps solve your problem.
