Your control board fuse could be faulty or the board itself could be bad,check the continuity of the new ignitor to verify its good, then for voltage on wires of ignitor at start-up of dryer

Oven heats to 100 degrees and stays there


Hello David, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description,I`d suggest it is the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner that is likely the problem...even if it glows, I'll explain further below.

Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined. It'll look like this...

macmarkus_239.jpg


** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

NOTE: Some ranges have an upper broiler the same as the lower (bake) ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.


Here's a helpful link...
http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Hot-Surface-Glow-Bar-Igniter/316489400/1197384?modelNumber=790.71402700

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case. Many people overlook the ignitor, especially if it "glows" since that gives the untrained person the impression it works...that is not the case however. (Ignitor may glow but not have sufficient amperage to open valve, or open the valve slightly, even intermittently...but not hot enough to ignite the gas).

As far as checking them you don't actually need a clamp on meter (though it is the preferred method) you can also ohm it out to test it as follows...

macmarkus_238.jpg
You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake ignitor. The number I use in most applications (it's fairly universal and replaces both long and short ignitors and works in 90% of ranges out there)... is part #12400035. (Will not work on the GE with round type ignitors though).

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s if you're more comfortable with that.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further or if anything is not clear and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs. Please take a moment to rate the assistance you received here and a brief testimony is also appreciated.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

GE Gas built in oven Model JRS14 will not heat up


The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range


Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

It could be that the igniters are wet. Try baking them dry first..
