Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven
The oven only comes on boil and doesn't come on so I can bake at 400 or anything but boil the top burners willn't light up only on boil
SOURCE: Preheat takes forever
click the link Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F )
Some ohm readings and there temperature:
Degrees F - Resistance
100 - 1143 ohms
200 - 1350 ohms
300 - 1553 ohms
350 - 1654 ohms
400 - 1753 ohms
500 - 1949 ohms

Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at www.fixyourboard.com.

Check resistance of lower burner ignitor. Should be above 4ohms. If not, replace. Part 40-75$ + labor. Let me know if info helps- ED
