Question about GE Profile JGSP44 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
When I turn on the oven to bake the thing in the back (ignitor?) comes on and throws out some heat, but the burner does not come on. I tried the broiler also and the flames does come one after a long wait.
What is wrong and how do I fix it. I need instructions. Is this something a handy homeowner can fix?
Once the ignitor starts to glow the oven should light within 20-30 seconds. If it doesn't then the ignitor is too weak and needs to be replaced. These are usually easy to replace by taking it loose and splicing in the new one. You can view a diagram, price, and part # at http://www3.sears.com/. You will need the entire model # from the sticker on the oven to look it up. On alot of models you can pull out the bottom drawer and disconnect the ignitor wiring and pull it out from inside the oven. Then just install the new one in the reverse order. This is the most common repair for ovens more than 3 yrs. old. Also, if the ignitor looks whitish instead of charcoal color this is a good indication that it needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
