GE Profile JGBP86WEA2WW Won't get hot...

I read your diagnosis for a GE Profile where the oven won't get hot.  Given that my broiler works, but the oven doesn't it sounds like the igniter is bad.  You indicate that this is a job that I could most likely be done by the consumer, without calling in a professional.  You also indicated that you might have step by step instructions.  Would you be kind enough to share those with me?  I'm assuming that I could find the proper part on-line.

Sure. If you go to my profile and look under "Tips and Tricks" section. I have a complete write up on how to replace an igniter in an electric oven. If you can't find it, let me know and I will forward the instructions to you.

PS Yes, this is a simple job that anyone can do. The igniter will cost you about $30 - $60 depending on where you get it. It will save you big $$ in the long run, if you avoid the labor charges :).

GE Gas Oven and broiler not working

No, there is a "hot-point" ignition for each but they are both controlled by the ignition module, easy fix, follow the wires (2) from the Broiler ignition point.... they will lead you to the module. More then likely it's wire connection came apart.....

Ge oven jtp18 elements won't heat

The limit switch in a Ge oven usually works or is blown. I would look at the oven sensor located at the back of the oven. It should read approximately 1k ohm at room temperature.

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off

  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.


  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.

    GE Profile Oven Door Lock Broken...

    It sounds like your door latch motor, and/or interconnecting wiring may be bad. You will need to carefully lift the top panel and/or rear panel and locate the latch motor and linkage. If you go to and look under the "Body Parts" heading, there is an excellent exploded view diagram. The latch is listed as item #279. Your exact model number was not listed, but if you use JGBP86WEA1WW or JGBP86WEA3WW, these will suffice. With the top of the range lifted, inspect the latch for any broken wires and attempt to operate the control panel to see if the latch works. If not, replace it. The part number is WB2K10010. This same part can be found at for about half the price. Let me kow if you require addtional assistance. I hope this helps you.

    GE Profile Spectra XL 44 gas oven

    If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.
