Need to bypass electric igniter on oven

I have a gas stove/oven in a duck blind. The oven works off a, electric ignitor safety switch. The electric power is not reliable to the blind. I would like to bypass the electric ignitor so gas will flow to the oven, (controlled by the knob) so it can be light by a match. How do I do that.

Rather than giving you advice on how to do this I would suggest from a safety point of view your bets action will be to go to the following GE link

http://www.geappliances.com/plcy/appliances_worldwide.htm

Select your country and then the Contact Us section and call GE Technical Support for advice on how to do this as they understand their appliances better than anyone else and can advise you on how and what to do. I would not like to be responsible for injuring someone by offering incorrect advice even though I know how to do what you are asking.

Can I operate the oven without having 110AC powered up to it? I don't have electrical service at my cabin and I really do not want to have to run the generator the entire time I use the oven. Thanks


sorry but you need the 115 for the timer and ignitor .they used to make stoves that required no electric but I have not seen one other than in campers for perhaps 20 years now .

I have a GE Hotpoint stove/range model num 317B6641P001 that the oven will not ignite nor will the igniter turn on.


It sounds like the ignitor is bad...you will not or should not smell gas if ignitor is bad...gas valve is not supposed to open until the sensor by the ignitor has reached a certain temp. It's a safety feature. If you replace the ignitor, it should work like normal.

Won't get hot, smells like gas


Most of these new fangled gas stove feature a silicone carbide ignitor to light the oven. Older stoves used a standing pilot light. As silicone carbide ignitor age a little they tend to get weak and fail to open the gas safety vave sufficiently enough for ignition. Take a look

GE profile JGSP44 Oven stopped working


Ignitor needs to be working for the gas valve to open. If the ignitor does not reach the proper amp draw the gas valve will not open. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru performing an amp draw test on the ignitor.

Gas stove with electric ignition (oven stopped working)


the electric ignition is bad and needs replaced in oven. I had the same problem a few months ago and it was the ignitor for the oven. if replacing it yourself, be very careful with ignitor, it is very fragil. do not touch ignitor itself, hold on to it by the base of it. they are not that hard to change.

I have a Hotpoint RGB745 gas range everything works on the stove except for the oven. It now will not come on. the ignitor glows but will not light and if it does the oven will go out. the broiler works...


The ignitor gets weak and dim and does not allow for the safety device to open and let the gas flow. The igniter must pull at least 3.2 amps. I have a short video HERE

Oven does not work


First off check to be sure there is 120 volts at the wall outlet as this controls everything and may be as simple as a breaker or fuse. If that's okay then the igniter is the most commonly defective part and has two main functions. First,it draws electrical current through the oven safety valve to open it. Second, when it gets hot enough to glow it ignites the gas in the oven burner. If the igniter gets weak, it will fail to open the safety valve correctly. If the valve does not open, the oven will not heat. To determine if the igniter is defective, observe the igniter when the oven is on. If the it glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, this indicates that the igniter is too weak to open the valve. If the igniter is weak, replace it. If the igniter does not glow at all, use a multimeter to test the igniter for continuity. If the igniter does not have continuity, replace it.
