GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW

Just wrote this morning about a problem I have with my GE Profile Spectra JGBP85WEB5WW range. Put in a new oven igniter and it still takes about 30 - 40 minutes to reach 350 degrees. I was told this morning that it might be the gas valve on the range and to contact a technician. How do I verify that it's the gas valve that's the problem. My husband is an electrician by trade and had installed the range when we purchased it. He has also installed gas water heaters and worked on our gas furnace. Any information would be appreciated and helpful. Thanks.

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.

GE Profile Spectra XL44 oven wouldn't light, stove top and broiler works

We have our second GE stove and it has started to do the same as the rest of you.  Our first stove began to suffer igniter issues after 4 or 5 years.  I called GE and was given a simple test procedure for the igniter using a multimeter that I don't remember and likely wouldn't post regardless lest someone do things incorrectly... In any event, as I understand, the gas flow is tied to the igniter temp.  As the igniter ages, the temp that it can achieve gets lower. Eventually, it hits a point where the temperature isn't sufficient to reliably ignite the gas and our problems start.  The solution is fairly simple.  Replace the igniter. So, call a repair person and tell them the problem.  They can come out and instal the new igniter.  Unless you are a licensed or certified repair person, DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.  Let the pros handle repair to gas appliances.

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.

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.
