Amp draw on a GE JKS0500P2BG

I am hooking up a used oven and the range plate with the amp draw is scratched off can you tell me what the amp draw on a GE JKS0500P2BG is? Also the exsisting wiring has 30 amp breakers in disconnect where I am going to be puting this oven in at.

Replacing igniter on wallmount gas oven


If your gas oven isn't firing up, start your diagnosis by checking the ignitor for the proper current draw. "Uh, do what?" you ax, with glazed eyes. Don't be intimidated by techie-sounding procedures. This is simple stuff- if you can fog a mirror, you can measure current draw. This article explains how to make simple electrical measurements and this one explains what you're looking for in the gas oven ignitor.

Once you've proven that the ignitor is drawing insufficient current (and, therefore, is the correct part to replace to fix the problem), use this handy pictorial guide to hepya change it out. The wiring for most range ignitors is accessed underneath the oven by removing the pots drawer, as shown here. Why do you need to access the wiring? Two reasons: 1) so you can measure the current draw and 2) it's part of replacing the ignitor since the new one has to be wired in the same way as the existing one. Take note of where the wires go. The ignitor wires are not polarity-sensitive so don't worry about "reversing" them.


In this particular range (a Maytag), I had to remove a covering panel to expose all the wires.


Here, I have my clamp-on ammeter on one of the ignitor wires to make a current draw measurement. You can see the closeup of the meter in the next pic. You can see the current draw reading is 2.4 amps. For a square ignitor, such as this one (you'll see it in a subsequent picture), the minimum acceptable current draw is 3.4 amps, well above what I'm measuring here. Obviously, in order to make this measurement, the oven has to be turned on and the ignitor getting voltage. This is a LIVE test, meaning there's live voltage on the circuit. Fire in the hole! Fry yo ace if'n you ain't careful, Hoss, so... BE CAREFUL!On some ranges, you'll need to remove the back panel to get to wiring for one or both ignitors (there's one each for bake and broil). Yes, this means the range needs to be pulled out from the wall. In the case of a wall oven where the freakin' engineers didn't bother to make it service-friendly, you'll need to remove the entire wall oven from the cavity. If this is the case with yours, you'll quickly understand why I abhor wall ovens. Here's a typical bake ignitor. Note that this one is square. Some ranges, such as older Whirlpools and GEs, use a round ignitor. These two types of ignitors have different current draw specs and are made to be used with different types of valves. This means they are not interchangeable. So, if your range uses the square ignitors, you can only replace it with another square ignitor. The brand doesn't matter since, by convention, all square ignitors have the same current draw and all round ignitors have the same current draw. For replacement square ignitors, I find that the Maytag universal square ignitor kit is the most cost-effective and reliable. I use this kit in all brands that require a square ignitor.

Kitchenaid kgrs807 problem breaker trips in broil cycle


it sounds like it is drawing more power than it should.check the amperage rating on the data plate. it should be on back of range (about 55 amps),then check breaker amperage.if breaker is larger( 55 or bigger), you need to check wire gauge,It should be #8agw min. #6agw would be better #8agw has a max rating of 55amps.If thw wire is 20 years old or more it is rated at 50 amps thing anything else call me 831 235 7291

Gas range oven heating slowlyJenn-Air Electric/Gas Range JDS9861AAP heats slowly


The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

I hope this helps

Hello, my GE TrueTemp electric range just went out. I was cooking on 3 burners and had the oven on. Does the range have an auto shutoff if it is overheating? how long do i have to wait before it will turn...


You blew a breaker in the house probably,I would check that first. You were drawing quite a few amps there with all that on zt the same time

Oven will not start correctly


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/gasoventroubleshootvideo.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

GE gas oven--Spectra--the oven does not heat--the broiler works, however


Most common problem is the glow bar ignitor. Lift off the bottom panel of the oven and remove. (Some have two screws holding the panel at the back of the panel.) Turn the oven on and see if the glow bar glows.
Even if the glow bar glows doesn't mean that it is working 100%. An amp probe is need to see if the glow bar is drawing the proper amperage to allow the gas valve to open allowing gas to come to the burner. The glow bar should draw about 3.5 to3.8 amps. If drawing more or less than this, replace the glow bar ignitor.
I hope this helps.

Kitchenaid gas range model# ykgsc308lso oven


If it takes more than 2 minutes to light then that ignitor is weak. It should be very bright. It has to draw 3.5 amps to open the valve. The valve is good because the ignitor is working the oven control is good, all it can be is a weak ignitor. It should draw 3.5 amps or have measure 37 ohms.

Oven wont light


Check the amp draw on the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or less, replace the ignitor. If 2.9 amps or more, replace the gas safety valve.
