Question about GE JGRP17 Gas Single Oven

1 Answer

JGRP20 Gas oven won't heat when you select bake

I have a GE wall oven I just replaced the oven control (ERC3) and the sensor asm. It worked for a couple days and now the bake function will not work. When you hit self-clean, it fires up and gets hot - so that seems to work fine.

Any ideas on what to do next? I don't need all the fancy stuff, I just need a functioning back cycle in a model of oven that fits the current opening - so if the fix is replacment, please give your recommendations.

Thanks in advance for your help....

Re: JGRP20 Gas oven won't heat when you select bake

When you replaced the control module and the sensor, what was the reason? Did you have a specific problem that you were able to pinpoint, or were you changing parts until you fixed it? Also, whenever I have a problem like this, (something new stops working after I just fixed something else), I go back and check my job. Look for a wire that may have been accidentally loosened, or a harness that's not tight enough, etc. Otherwise, because the self clean is coming on, check the time settings and program on the self clean clock. Make sure its not locking out the burner.
As for your last question, you should be able to find a reasonable replacement oven for not too much money, unless yours has a microwave attached. The major appliance manufacturers make spacer kits to fill in the hole in your wall if you get a new one and there is a space. The large home supply stores can order these for you. As long as there is someone working there that is competent.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not

Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Oven doesn't go on.


If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

If the part that is not heating is only one element, then you may need to replace the element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.
In this case, selecting only baking or only broiling (depending on what element is faulty), the oven will work normally.

If the oven is a gas oven, then you have no element. In that case if the oven burners are working, replace the temperature sensor.

If replacing the temperature sensor does not help, then replace the oven electronic control.

GE Profile Stove baking option not working

Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at

Oven shuts off by itself

When your oven reaches the desired temp. it shuts down then turns back on again after it cools down a couple of degrees and cycles like this during the complete baking cycle. If your ignitor or oven valve is getting weak it would cause this symptom.
