Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Hear a boom, oven door opens/closes, oven stays lit, burners blown out

Ok, I know not to use the stove as this surprised and scared me. I was cooking on the stove top and pre-heating the oven. I heard a slight boom and the door blew open about 2 or 3 inches and closed on its own. I opened the oven door and smelled gas, but noticed that the oven was still on and preheating. The burner on the top of the stove went out, and out of curiosity, I did relight it with no problem.
What could be causing this problem? While using the oven over Easter, I thought I heard the oven "popping" a little as it adjusted its heat while cooking dinner. 
Thank you

    My GE XL44 gas oven is close to five years old and the first problem I had with it was the warming tray not warming. We have a GE service plan and GE fixed it. A week ago my oven stopped working completely except for the broiler. A GE service man who was not use to working with gas ovens replaced the ignitor, turned on the oven and boom, except the oven door did not open but you could hear it explode. He ordered a gas pressure valve that he installed today. The problem is when the oven seems to ignite it makes a very big noise and there is definitely a very large gas smell throughout my whole kitchen. I've been concerned my house is going to blow up so I have not used the oven and will call the gas company tomorrow to have them check it out. Any idea what the problem could be? The oven is working and heating up but the smell of gas is extremely strong and that really worries me.

SOURCE: no heat at burners or oven

check your fuse / breaker box make sure you have power (sounds like you dropped a leg of power) make sure breakers/fuse is on/good flip it to off the to on if oven don't work then take a look at the cord to the range check power at the wall then open where cord goes into range check power or you may even find the cord burnt in there if so replace all damaged wires good luck

SOURCE: stove top pilot light

I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

SOURCE: GE Profile Stove, stove top works but the oven will not heat up.

You will most likely have to replace the oven igniter. If you have the model number you posted under, I believe the igniter for the broiler is the same as the oven broiler, and could be swapped out to get the oven working again. (of course, now the broiler won't work until that igniter is replaced) If you'd like the part number or any further advise, comment back with the full model number off the sticker just behind the lower drawer panel on the frame of the range. Tonight, you may have to finish the chicken on the stove top.

SOURCE: Gas smell when oven is on and heating.

This sounds like a gas leak at the gas control valve for the oven, probably somewhere just past the control valve. If the leak was before the valve, you would either hear or smell gas leaking all the time.
The line could simply be loose at the fitting or the gas valve could be faulty. You could also have a leak somewhere at or before the oven burner assembly.

At any rate, this condition can be dangerous. The oven gas leak (any gas leak) should be diagnosed by a competent technician and the cause(s) of the gas leak determined as soon as possible and corrected.

Electric combination range/ovens are stoves that have both surface burners and an oven. Depending on their features, some electric range/oven units are quite complex. To understand how they work, let's look at the following areas:

The control panel
The cooktop
The area beneath the cooktop
The interior of the oven
The broiler

I need to know how to light the oven? Does it have a pilot light like the stove top


most stoves do not have pilot lights but work from a pizo ignition system
when you turn on the gas knob ,the first action is to energize the pizo and that continually sparks to ignite the gas at the hob
the same is with the oven
ovens should be lit with the oven door open and once lit then the door can be closed

My stove lights very slow with a low flame. Should the igniter stay on after it lights oven


Yes the ignitor stays on even after the burner is lit. The ignitor is wired in series with the oven valve. It sounds like the oven valve isn't opening all the way. A new ignitor should solve this problem. The old igniter builds up resistance and doesn't let the correct voltage through to the oven valve for it to open properly.

Oven won't ignite


Your range is a Direct spark model.ce00970.jpg8278a1e.pngIf you want a Direct spark manual, let me know. The module gets confirmation from relay on the oven control and sends dc power to the gas valve. I suspect that gas valve be cause the top burners work which is usually and indicator that the module is fine. The terminals ohms should be 216 ohms between each of the 3. If any are open the valve won't work.

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Hi,

Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove


You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.
