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....

    I replaced the ERC3 and Sensor becasue they were the most likely reason for my oven not functioning at all (no bake, self clean, or broiler); the repair tech replaced these two item 3 years ago when the same issue came up and the problem was fixed. Once these were replaced, the oven worked again - only shortly though - then the bake funtion cut out again. I checked all the connections by pulling the oven when the probelms popped up again.

    Where can I get instructions to check the timer settings on the selfclean clock?

    You would think they should last longer. I actually ordered the second set of parts directly from GE. I do not own a multimeter - but if it will help resolve this, I will go out and get one. Any particular make or model I should get? I have a Radio Shack & Ace hardware close by that will probably have one.

    I have found that the self-clean may only be partly working. The broiler lights but a few hours in it is ice cold with 2 hours left on the clean cycle. I am going to attempt to swap the ignitor from the broiler to the bake (same part number) and test to see if the bake function is restored - If it works, I should be able to order a new ignitor to then replace the broiler ingitor I swapped out. It seem far more likely that the issue is ignitor related at this point...

    Any thoughts?????

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.

    Type in GE appliances on your computer search bar. There should be several choices to choose from. Go to the official G.E. site and they have use and operation manuals to download.

    I would think the new parts should have lasted longer than a couple of years. Whenever you get a repair, make sure the person uses new FSP parts. As I would assume these ones are not cheap. Of course most of them are made in places like Mexico now, so I guess you cant expect much. In case you still cant figure it out still, do you own a multimeter?

    Sorry it took so long to reply, I have had some computer issues, the meter should be one that checks a/c and d/c volt and ohms.I have seen these for sale at both ends of the price spectrum. Don't go overboard, but you get what you pay for. The most important thing is that you understand how to use it. It can be a little intimidating, just keep in mind most of the settings you will not use. So get on you are comfortable using.

    Yea, that's a good idea. If you still have problems, most of my experiences with the self cleaning systems are the time settings, start/stop. Most people just need to read the manual and set it right. It seems like you are on the right path, though. Good luck.

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.
