Question about GE JGBP28 Gas Kitchen Range
Have a GE gas range. Broiler doesn't work while oven does. Unit has twq new igniters and functions with one gas valve. The broiler igniter does't show enough current when checked. What could prevent the broiler igniter from reach proper electrical requirement to open gas valve?
As mentioned, bake function works fine.
First clean the terminals at the control and check for tight wires at the incoming terminal block. Check the neutral wire for a good conection. If the ignitor reads less than 3 amps it does not have enough resistance to open the gas valve. Turn the gas off. Put a clamp on amp meter on the broil ignitor wire. Turn the broiler on. If less than 3 amps.replace the ignitor.

This would also go for the broiler also...
The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....
