GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW Range

Back on July 15 I wrote in with a problem with my GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW range. I noticed that ever since I used the self cleaning oven feature, my oven didn't work right. It took forever to reach proper temperature. The broiler works fine. I was told that it was probably the oven igniter. So, two days ago, my husband put in a new oven igniter. Thought that my have solved the problem. It still takes about 30-40 minutes before the oven gets up to 350 degrees. My mom has the same stove, so I went over to her house and set the oven to 350 and within 9 minutes it had reached temperature. Any thoughts as to what might be the problem. Thanks for any help.

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.

GE JGBP85WEB5WW - F7 / E9 Error codes

Hi there,

Well first of all you determine if problem is with the Key Panel or Control by-

1. Pushing CLEAR/OFF pad.
2. Disconnecting Ribbon Cable from control and waiting at least 32 seconds to see if Code recurs

If code recurs, problem is in the control. Replace control.
If code does not recur, problem is with the Key Panel.
This error code means Function pad button stuck or Bad clock: Unstick button or Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).
Post comments for more help or information........

Good Luck!!

im assuming you dont have to light the pilot.if thats the case and you replaced the ignitor assembly it could possibly be the ignition module/board.

Yes, it could very well be an igniter. The igniter can still glow and not work. The reason being that the igniter (depending on type) needs to produce .25 to .37 amps in order for the gas valve to open. If this potential is never reached, the igniter will glow, but gas will never flow. Or, gas will eventually flow for a weak (slow) igniter and will take forever to ignite. Which could be the reason for your low bake temperature. The burner does not stay lit all the time during the bake cycle. It will cycle on and off as needed to maintain the oven temperature. If the igniter is taking a long time to relight the burner, it could take a long time to heat. The broiler has a separate igniter and probably doesn't get used as often as the bake igniter. You can test the theory by swapping the igniter between the bake and broil burners and see if the problem moves to the broiler. Make sure you secure power to the range BEFORE attempting to remove the igniter, however. You should not have to turn off the gas to do this. Everything should be accessible through the oven door and broiler. I tell you this, because a new igniter (depending on the type you have) can run as much as $100. It will probably be worth the effort just to be sure. I hope this helps you.
