Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Do I have to have a gasfitter or gas company rep come check my oven if I turn off the gas using the cut off valve behind the oven, replace an ignitor then open the cut off valve I have a kenmore oven, circa 1993 in which the oven has stopped heating. the ignitor glows and will produce a flame in the flame bar, but after only a few seconds, the preheat indicator beeps and the flame goes out. the broiler works. I am considering removing the ignitor from the broiler and using it to replace the oven ignitor as a test to determine if it is only the ignitor as the problem. I plan on closing the gas cutoff, unplugging the oven before working on it. any safety issues I need to be aware of?

Don't even worry about shutting off the gas, as long as you unplug the unit no gas can come through the valve.

AGR5844VDW oven not lighting


Most modern ovens have a glow bar ignitor, not a spark ignitor. It will glow a bright orange and then the oven valve will click open and allow gas through and the burner lights. Many gas ovens have a small shutoff handle located on the silver appliance regulator, which is located either behind the stove or at the bottom behind the oven drawer. Make sure it has not been accidentally closed. It will cut off gas to the oven only.

STOVE WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT HEAT UP - GAS OVEN


There are 2 high likelihoods as to what your problem may be. When you turn your oven on, does the ignitor begin to glow within 15 to 30 seconds? If it doesn't, there is no power going to the ignitor and the control mechanism is going to need to be replaced. If you have a manual dial thermostat control, you can order this on-line at parstdirect.com. If you control is electronic, you will be required to have an appliance technician come out in order to send the old controller in to be rebuilt.

If your ignitor is glowing when you turn on your oven, but it has a very dull orange glow, you have a bad ignitor and it needs to be replaced. This is the most common problem with older gas ovens. The ignitors just burn out after time and do not draw the amperage needed to open the safety valve.

Replacing the ignitor is a fairly easy procedure. Replacing a dial thermostat control can be a little rough due to rerouting the thermocoupler back through the oven body. Unfortunately, the electronic style oven controls can only be sent in for rebuilding and the company that you use will need to be able to handle "Retforrepr Rebuilds".

Magic chef self ignitor top,, how do u get the oven to work.. is it self ignite too. i turn on oven ger a glow in the oven,, dont know the model ,,older stove. good shape. bought house with gas stove...


If the glow bar is glowing and the oven doesn't come on in about 30 - 45 seconds.... it probably is the glow bar that needs to be replaced. BUT it could be the oven valve. Usually it is the glow bar.
The glow bar is wired in series with the oven valve and even if it is glowing it may not be sending the correct voltage through to the oven valve. To change the glowbar... unplug the appliance, unscrew 2 screws holding the metal bracket to the burner and remove the ignitor. You can cut the 2 white wires going to the ignitor and use ceramic wire nuts with the new ignitor.

Used oven yesterday..... worked perfect. Went to turn in on today.... ignitor glows, but oven burner will not light. Any suggestions?


ignitor loose capacity... in order for gas valve to open ignition level have to be not less then 3 A. if it less then ignitor will glows but gas valve want open... So you should replace ignitor, but if you have tools (electric meeter) check if it's less then 3A, you can check one of the two wire on ignitor...

Oven wont work but range top does


Your range has a small 3"x1"x1" metal box with a gas valve going into it placed right behind the broiler flame tube; this gas safety valve alows the gas to enter the "pilot" tube to be lit by an piezio electric ignitor: that is the clicking you hear when you try to operate the oven. this gas valve needs to be replaced as, it is not opening to feed gas to the ignitor. an appliance parts store will have the oven gas valve; it just screws into place. be sure to turn off the gas and, remove power to the range before you do any work on it.

OVEN WILL NOT (GAS) LITE


With the assumption you have a gas range with electric ignition and is fully powered (plugged in); the possible problem may be the "Electric ignitor/Glow bar".

When turning on the oven, do you see a redish (good) or yellowish (not good; replace) glow emitting from the very bottom or the oven/broil area?

There are typically 2 types of electric glow bar ignitors; Round and Square. Ignitors are actually fairly easy to replace, removing 2 mounting screws and cutting/splicing 2 seperate wires together. Is your ignitor "round" (circular - like size of finger ) or "square" (rectangular - like snickers candy bar)

If your ignitor is not coming on at all; this can be a couple things;

Defective Ignitor - Gone completely Bad - Out (Assuming your have full power 110v to ignitor)

Defective Gas Valve - Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

Defective Control Board / Thermostat: Assist in passing 110V to Ignitor

FYI - As a safety measure, the ignitor needs to "come on and appear solid red" to properly pass power to gas valve; thus opening and allowing gas to pass through the burners and combust.

Top oven bake igniter comes on, but gas does not.


Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve

Amana oven gas leak issue


staunch has no idea what he is talking about. It has nothing to do with the igniter, or it would fire up at all. Since you are saying that your oven does ignite and heat up, it is the internal gas valve that is the problem.

The way all recent (20 year at least) are designed, the gas valve internally can not open unless the igniter is working, for obvious reasons ... boom! The igniter circuit allows the gas valve to open, once it detects that the igniter is ready to "ignite" a gas flow. BUT, the valve can be bad in the AMOUNT of gas being delivered. Your's is allowing too much gas, more than can be burned, hence the smell.

DON'T use the oven until you have a qualitifed tech come out and replace the valve. It is very dangerous for you to do it yourself.
