Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
My stove is not allowing to bake. The broil works and the stove top works. I don't see any glow from where it is suppose to light at.
It would appear that the electric ignitor isn't functioning as it should and might need to be replaced.
You can remove the oven racks and the bottom oven floor to observe the ignitor. now turn the oven on and see if the ignitor glows, if not, the ignitor is faulty and needs to be replaced.
You can enter in your full model number at the following site and get the replacement part number (and price). If you're going to do the repair yourself, be sure to turn off the power or unplug the range from the power outlet before doing any work on it.
You'll need to pull the oven out so you can get at the backside panel where the electrical connections are located. There is also a screw on the inside of the oven that holds the lower iginitor in place. Simply remove and replace the faulty one with the new one and you should be fine.
If you want to confirm that the ignitor is the only issue, you can swap out the broiler ignitor with the oven (lower) ignitor, as they should be the same part for your range. If you swap them and the oven doesn't ignite, then the faulty part is probably either thermocouple that tells the gas inlet valve control, which lets gas enter into the oven. The thermocouple which tells the gas valve to open, once the ignitor has reached the proper temperature, so if the thermocouple isn't working, the gas valve won't open.
Here's a link that you can enter in your model number and get the parts list and a line drawing for your range. I think you're missing a few letters or numbers in your model#.
My bet is on the ignitor as the faulty part, but the swap test will confirm that, and if the swap doesn't work, then the thermocouple is bad.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
