Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a 5 year old JGBP79WEB5WW stove and the bake stopped working, sits at 100 degrees and the glow bar does not heat up. I took it out and measured resistance, it showed 115.7 ohms. Although I didn't think it was bad since it had continuity, I ordered a replacement off the web and it arrived today. I measured resistance of the new one and it show 247 ohms. I put it in and it does not glow either.
1. Does anyone know what the resistance of a good bake ignitor should be?
2. Assuming it's not the bake ignitor, what else can I troubleshoot?
My next step would be to replace the two gas coils. They are located on top the gas valve. Disconnect the elect. leads, pull upward on coils. Replace w/newones. The difference is a primary and secondary, one has two elect. prongs and one has three. Note which one goes where when you remove them and install new ones in the opposite. These tell the gas valves when to activate and allow gas to flow to your igniter. When they malfunction, and they do, you wont have gas flowing.
