We have a GE profile spectra (approx 8 years old), the oven lights with a boom the first use of the day. seems to light ok each time after. just started doing it a couple of days ago. any info would be...
That sound very typical of a weak oven igniter. When its cold it takes so long to get to temp.it needs to be to ignite gas so gas collects in oven chamber before igniting then as its on it get hot a bit sooner. Eventually the igniter will weaken even more to the point will it will not ignite the gas at any time, replacing it now will prevent that. The part number for the igniter is WB13K21 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;
To replace the igniter;
remove oven racks
remove oven door by locking hinges into place and lifting off of oven(if unable to figure how to lock hinges this step can be ommitted but it much easier with door out of the way)
remove oven floor
unscrew igniter from burner bar
disconnect wiring,which will be under storage drawer
pull out old igniter
run new igniter wiring down below to storage drawer area
screw igniter to burner bar
Test to see if works without booms when cold
reinstall oven floor
I hope i have been able to help you fix your oven,
