Question about GE JGBP86SEKSS Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range

Oven AND broiler do not work but self-clean does

Wife went to use the oven today (used it yesterday) and it would not light. Turns out the broiler doesn't light either. Neither igniter was glowing. However, in trying to narrow down the problem we tried the self-clean mode. Self-cleaning works fine with both burners (broiler and oven) working well. Any suggestions?

    That raises one question and perhaps two:
    1. Where are the fuses?, and
    2. If the fuses are in the top panel, how does one remove or gain access to the top panel? Again, model #JGBP86AEA2AA.

  • larryableguy Feb 21, 2008

    First link troubleshooting was of no help. I had checked the gas valve earlier. It was wide open. Besides, if the gas valve was closed then the self-clean mode would not have worked I don't believe the second link applies either. Both igniters (bake and broil) seem fine for the same reason (self-clean mode works). Top burners work well.

  • larryableguy Feb 22, 2008

    None of the situations on that site apply. Neither the oven nor the broiler work (two separate igniters) yet both igniters work fine in self-clean mode. Based on what is actually happening, it is not an igniter problem and it is not a gas valve problem but it is something that is common to both the oven and broiler. I am not sure what that might be other than the ERC.

    clock works fine. timer works fine. all burners work fine. everything on the "brains" panel seems to be working except "broil" and "bake". However, nothing "clicks" after setting the temperature and hitting "start". thanks for your efforts.

    No one has responded since Feb. 22. Please see response of Feb. 25.

  • larryableguy Mar 06, 2008

    I can find no reference anywhere to a "switch". What "switch" are you referring to and where might it be? Thanks.

  • larryableguy Mar 07, 2008

    To summarize:
    GE XL44 Model #JGBP86AEA2AA, serial HV226529P. Top burners work fine. Self-clean works fine so igniters are OK and gas valves are open. Neither the broiler nor oven work: when you hit "Bake", punch in a temperature, and hit "Start" or when you hit "Broil" and hit "Start". In both cases you hear one click after hitting start but nothing else happens. When you hit "Self-Clean" and then "Start", everything works fine. Same "Start" button in all three cases.

    Sweet_rascal, assuming it is a welded relay (and that sounds pretty good), does that mean that the electronic range control needs to be replaced or is there another "fix"? Thanks.

  • larryableguy Mar 08, 2008

    New update: Ran the self-clean cycle again. Only the top igniter fired up (the one in the broiler). The bottom igniter (oven) did not heat up. Is this looking like an oven igniter problem even though the broiler does not work by itself? Thanks.

  • Anonymous Mar 17, 2014

    we hadn't used it turned it off but try the oven and is stuck in clean mode. Is there a fix?

If not you may have low supply pressure to your range or the regulator may be limiting the gas flow. Also, I have a wolf gas range and it takes 30 minutes to heat to 350 as well, haven't timed it to 400. Has it always taken that long? Another thing to check is the door seal. If its not sealing it could cause a long preheat. If the door seal is smashed flat and/or not soft it needs replaced.

    There's 2 common problem with the one like your/s. First if the burner does not fired up it could possibly the pressure of gas or no gas is coming out into the burner hole/s that why it's not fire-up. Second when the gas is present and the amount of pressure is OK when you switch on the ignition and never give a flame into the burner, this can be possibly that the ignition doesn't have that enough supply of electric to ignite the gas..



    .i..e possible that the ignition pin have not align to the burner holes where the gas air flow, and for the #2 the side of the burn have a dust or a corrosion that limit the gas came out to that hole where the ignition pin is pointing, for the #3 is the ignition key have to replace a new one.

    You've got a welded closed relay on the control board, shouldn't be
    hard to track down once you access the schematic which should be folded
    up behind the control panel.

    If you have tryed everything in regards to the igniters, gas valve and still does not work.

    Next step should be to check the electrical parts.

    Are you getting power to the appliance?

    Is the clock or timer working properly?

    Do you hear the relays clicking?

Used self cleaning process on my oven yesterday and today the oven will not turn on, we keep getting message to unlock the oven door even though it is. What can we do?


The oven gets extremely hot during the self-cleaning mode... the door switch might have got stuck in locked position, or broken in locked position (to be replaced), let's hope it's just stuck...which you'll need to work the mechanical lock-unlock latching back and forth to hopefully unstick....and if that doesn't work just re-run self-cleaning process but this time let the oven cool completely before unlocking the door. Hope this helps.

Oven does not heat. Broiler and stove work. NO gas smell.


could be the oven thermostat, get a plumber/heating engineer out, but make sure you can trust him, cause he could try and say u need a new cooker when it MIGHT only be a new oven thermostat.

had same problem, had computer checked out by profesisonal. Was ok. But it seems it is the control pad that clean cycle screws up. Try this (thanks to my wife and her experimental prowess). 1. turn oven on to custom broil. 2. push down temp button to 375. 3. press bake button. 4. You should now have up or down temp. We think you have to get past pre heat cycle in order for this to work. But work it does.
