Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
The oven igniter is no longer working on my 4 year old stove. It's a model XL44. Is this something I can fix myself, or do I have to call a service company?
Not sure that I can help but will give it a go. Often the igniter plastic covering comes off the wiring from the heat of the oven and the igniter arcs on a metal surface on the oven. I had this problem with a gas oven I had. Check along the igniter wiring to see if it is arcing. Best way to find it is to firstly locate the wiring then ignite the oven WITHOUT THE GAS ON. If it is arcing you should be able to see a little flash. Check to make sure it is flashing at the right spot first near the pilot. Easiest way to rectify this problem is to wind electrical tape around the igniter providing you can get to the wire. If you have to pull out the igniter you can buy a plastic product called Heatshrink from places like Tandy or Electrical Hardware Stores. Just put some Heatshrink or Electricians Tape around it and it should solve the problem. Only other thing it could be is the igniter needs replacing. Hope this helps.
