I'm afraid I don't know how to help you get a new control panel (part #WB36K5065 is no longer available). But we have the same oven and a similar problem. Our control panel works just fine, but the face is melted from a recent mishap (small fire in the upper oven while broiling), so the plastic face of the control panel looks awful and needs replacing. If you decide to replace your oven and would like to sell the front face to your control panel we'd love to purchase from you.

SOURCE: I have a GE Gave

you have a bad ignitor,take out the racks and remove the floor of the oven,you'll see the round ignitor with two 1/4 inch screws holding it on,you can remove the burner tube that the ignitor is connected to with the ignitor on it or you can remove the screws,cut the wires close to the old ignitor and remove it,screw on the new ignitor,leave around6 or 8 inches of wire on the new ignitor,cut back the old wires so you can wire nut the wires together,start the oven and the ignitor should ignite the flame in like 20 to 40 doesn't matter what wires you connect,you don't have to worry about if the left wire coming out of the ignitor connects to the same wire the old one connected to,just as long as the wire nuts are tight on the 2 connecting wires you'll be fine.the part number is WB13K21 and the ignitor is around 80 can kill the power to the oven but no power is going to the ignitor if the bake isn't on so as long as you don't touch anything else you'll be fine,let me know how you make out

Broiler will not come on when baking

Take a look at the element ( the "tube" inside the oven that glows red hot when the oven is turned on). If the element is burned out it will not be hot and glowing. You may have a loose connection to the element but most likely it is burned out and needs replacing.
Our stove is 27 years old and I have had to replace top or bottom elements every 6 years or so. I just bought a replacement element at Canadian Tire in Calgary for about $34. Just undo the 2 screws around the element and attach the new element to the old wires.
Good Luck -I hope this works for you

We have a GE gas oven/stove top and the stove top is lighting as well as the broiler but we can not get the oven to heat up. What do you suggest we try?

i just moved and our stove in the new place doesnt bake things right. it seems that the top coil doesnt come on. its very difficult to bake anything. seems to come up to temp for pre heating, but only the bottom coil comes on. If you put it on broil, then the top coil gets hot. that works fine. tired of burning pizzas and biscuits. can anyone help with a cheap fix? dont have alot of cash.

I have a GE Profile Spectra XL44. When I turned my oven on to 375 it read 100 degrees for 10 mins. I open the door and there was no heat. I then tried the broiler to make sure it worked and the the element...

i wouldn't say it is "normal", but yes, the bake element in the bottom could have burned out again. it depends too on how often you use the oven. if you use it every day, chances are it will burn out quicker than say someone who only uses it once a week. you can check the element for a burn hole or a blister break. you can also check it for continuity with an ohm meter if you have one. hope this helps.

I have a GE Single Wall electric oven.(JTP25SOH2) The heating elements just stop getting hot. unit is about 4 years old purchased brand new. first the broiler stop getting hot then the baking heating...

First your broiler heating element may have gone bad and now you oven heating element may have gone bad. Using an OHM meter disconnect them and test for their value.Full scale on the meter means it is shorted. No meter movement means that it is open.Eitehr means to obtain a new element(s) and replace it/them.

Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
