Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Spectra range While heating up my oven this a.m. I watched the heating element spark, have a little flame, work around the entire coil and then the coils began falling apart. What would have caused this and how costly is the coil piece to replace?

    This same incident happen to me on December the 18. I was very amazed by the spark and how it traveled. I explained to friends that nothing had fallen on the element. I was just very grateful that I was home and that my teenage daughters were not cooking alone after school. Because it burned so quickly. This may be some type of defect in the coil?

Mj...I'm assuming you mean that the actual flame head is disintegrating. The metal is falling apart. If that is so, it is generally due to age. Broiling with greasy meats will accelerate it. Do not operate an oven with a damaged burner. Replacement is not terribly expensive. Each of the two burners is in the $40 range direct from GE...here http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/

Or you can get it from other places. The parts will all be the same.

If you are not seeing a damaged unit, be aware that it takes a few seconds for the gas to 'travel' around the tube and get lit, this is normal.

I have a whirlpool range rf263lxtq the oven stays consent on what is wrong with it


Oven clicks as if it is relighting almost constantly.

· Old electric range ovens use a coil heating element called a resistive coil.
This is nothing more than an electrical wire encased in a sheath. They have flat black coils over rounded burner drip bowls that catch your drips and spills.
· The newer glass-ceramic cook top style element produces heat that radiates through the glass top to the cookware above.
· Gas ovens / stovetop that use gas and not electricity. These work by igniting gas and use actual flame on the the stovetop.
· Newest cook top styles, such as the induction or halogen cook tops combine the same style to produce more even heating. Some of these ovens feature thermal limiters or thermostats that regulate the burner system. GAS OVENS 1)The spark igniter tip is dirty (can clean it with either a little wire brush or a piece of fine sandpaper).

2) The Pilot flame is too low, and the tip of the igniter is not in the flame good enough. (the flame acts as a circuit when it touches the tip & completes the circuit).

3) The spark module is no good and needs to be replaced.(But 1 & 2 are your best bet).
spark module does not sense the flame when it's on. The spark igniter is also the flame sensor which provides feedback to the spark module.

Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes and it is clean. All lighting holes must be clean too. You can enlarge them using a drill bit one size bigger.

If it would not fix the problem, replace the bake burner and the igniter.

There is a small chance for the spark module itself to be bad as well.
ELECTRIC OVENS:

CHECK THE OVEN RELAY CONTROL BOARD Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?


It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

My spectra stove's oven is not working, the burners work, the broil works, but my oven will not heat up


Hi.

The JBP78 is electric, since you are talking about a gas oven I think the model is incorrect.

Talking about a gas ovens:

If the oven is not heating up and both broiling and baking burners are working and coming up then check the temperature probe sensor and the control board.

If one of the two burners is not firing check the ignitor, the burner and coil, the burner and flame sensor. The most common problems come from defective ignitor.

Regards.

The coil in my oven caught on fire


You will need to replace the element, If it was just the lower bake element, it is a very easy repair, two screws and two wire connectors. UNPLUG the stove FIRST!!

My pilot light wont light and my oven will not come on the gas top burners are fine how do i fix this problem


Later model ovens don't usually have an actual pilot light in the form of a flame. It is usually some type of a spark or heated coil ignition system. It is usually located under the flame spreader and bottom plate in the oven. It is a safety system to keep gas from collecting in your home. You can remove the oven bottom and see the mechanism close by to the gas inlet tube. When you turn the gas on, you should be able to see either a small spark or bright red coil. A replacement can be purchased and installed, but it is probably a job for a technician.

Flame from electrice heating unit with range turned off


Your bake element blew out. Easy to replace... turn off the power (unplug) and replace the element by removing two screws holding it into the oven. Then you have two wires to the element and they either push on or have screw on terminals

GE Electric Spectra Oven botton element will not heat


If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

Broiler quit


Have you checked the broil element resistance? Unplug the range and remove the back cover. Remove the wires from the broiler element and place a meter across the element posts. See if the element reads close to a short (It should read very low resistance if good). If the element reads infinite (open), you will have to replace the broil element. If the readings are normal, you may have a bad Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. The board controls the bake and broil features of the oven through two separate circuits. Usually a relay on the board goes bad. Since the ERC is considered "non-serviceable", replacement components can be hard to find. For this reason, the entire assembly is usually replaced. The ERC runs around $100 for your range, while the broil element can run anywhere from $35 to $60. Now...as far as your self-cleaning function is concerned - most electric ranges use BOTH elements to super heat the oven cavity to about 700 - 800 degrees F. With one of the elements not working, there's a good possibility the self-cleaning function will not work either Double check the items I mentioned and let me know if this helps you.
