Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven
I followed the owner;s manual directions--I turned it on and waited 30-90 seconds--but nothing happened.
Should I have kept the knob pushed in while waiting for it to light?
Perhaps the oven ignitor (glow bar) is defective. To test, check the voltage going to the ignitor when you turn on the oven to bake. If you have 110 volts testing with a voltage meter, replace the ignitor. If you do not have voltage, trougleshoot backwards to see where you have voltage in but not out.
If I can help further, I am here.

The oven burner is lighted by electric ignition. To light the burner, press the pad for the desired electrical function and press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the desired temperature is displayed. The burner should ignite within 60 seconds. After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner cycles off completely, then on with a full flame to keep the oven temperature controlled.

Both the new and OLD units use a glow bar for lighting the burner. Most likely your Glow Bar has failed: GE PN: WB2X9154
The Glow Bar is item 316 this link:
