Question about GE Profile JGSP48 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a combination of the problems described for this model.
Initially I had the two right hand stove burners that would not ignite
so I decided to open up the cooktop to see if I could figure out the
problem. I turned off the power and closed the gas valve on the
attached regulator and proceeded to take the whole thing apart but did
not find anything unusual. After putting everything back together lo
and behold the front burner worked but the rear did not. Afterwards I
stumbled across the post on fixya.com regarding the switches and was
able to ignite the burner by activating another switch. Get a new
switch mechanism, problem solved.
Unfortunately, I went to use the oven last night and it seemed to turn on (fan blowing) but never heated up. Same for the broiler. I reset the breakers with no luck and my wife is requesting I get someone in to help since Thanksgiving is 3 days away. Do you think I could have damaged the control panel? Could it be the ignitors? It would seem a coincidence that both failed. Is there any safety mechanisms that may be triggering if I didn't get everything back together?
I just thought of one other thing. When I shut off the regulator that is behind the bottom drawer I turned on one of the burners to empty the gas, however, it didn't seem to slow down. I believe I opened the valve again but it uses a little flip switch that did not provide much feedback if it is open or closed. Are there two regulators for the oven and stovetop and could I have been adjusting the oven and do not have the valve opened properly to provide gas to the oven?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
That flip switch is for oven. Turn on oven and wait about a minute, then flip switch. That should do it. Leave switch in this position.
It's easy to hit this switch.

hi, Could be a bad bake element or a bad temperature sensor. If the element will glow bright red/orange with no hotspots it is OK. Take a volt/ohm meter set for ohms and check the temp sensor. If less than 1050 ohms replace it.

SOURCE: the oven will not light.
The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
