Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

All the stove top ignitiers work intermitantly.

They spark sometimes and others they don't. I have tried cleaning everything I can think of including the screws that are used to ground the heads, but nothing fixes the problem. I'm guessing the control board may be the problem, is there a way to test it? Also if that is it where is the best place to get the part?
Thanks,
Rob

If ALL the igniters are affected in the same way, I would suspect a spark module that is going bad. All the top igniters are the spark type and are fed by a spark module located either behind the bottom drawer or behind panel on the back of the range. Repairclinic.com carries the part for about $65. Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu and scroll through the pictorial list of parts for a "Spark Module". You can also try searspartsdirect.com. They also carry an inventory of parts for quite a few name brands. I hope this helps you. Please post back if you need further assistance.

Kenmore range 665.75842005 stove burners won't light & can't open top


Do you hear the faint "clicking" noise that indicates the oven is making an ignition spark? Sometimes those ignition posts need to be "Cleaned" due to contamination from food residue, or even excess cleaner residue. I use a stiff tooth brush and literally brush the ignition tips like you brush your teeth. Sometimes it takes more thsn one try. If not, the below parts replacement site might help.

Xl44 top burners light


There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

Kenmore gas 4burner cooktop model#229c44330p001-0 when its off the pilot keeps clicking(sparking) every 5-7secondstcarthen@


Hi
There are a few things to check for: First make sure the electrode (the small metal piece that the spark comes off from) is clean and the holes in the burner are clean, use a pin or paper clip to clean out the burner holes. The next thing to check for are theignition switchesunder the surface control knobs, the switches can twist and break and keep the spark module on and the spark keeps "clicking" even when the burner is light. If every thing looks good, you may have a badsparkmodule which should be replaced as sometimes cleaning can get moisture into the surface switches; try drying them with a hair dryer to see if this will help. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Clicking on stove top will not stop


Unplug the stove top for a few days, and let the burner switches dry out. Sometimes this is caused by moisture getting into the switches from a boil over, or from someone cleaning the stove top. If your unit still sparks after a few days then you will have to replace the bad burner switch, or switches. I am assuming that you are talking about a cook top that is sparking all the time, and not about a cooktop that is sparking, even after the burner lights. If your burner is still sparking after it lights, you usually have a bad spark module. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

What is a f13 error code on a Frigidaire Gallery smooth top stove


Hi danair2,

the F13 error is related to the clock. this error can occur when the clock looses communication between the keypad or any of the sensor in the stove, including the heat probe. sometimes resetting the power will fix the problem.

try disconnecting power to the stove completely and flip the corresponding breaker on and off on the breaker box. 
wait 30 seconds and than turn everything back on.
if the problem returns after power-up, replace the clock.

Regards
R.K.

How do you clean the un-removable burner tops


I have a MGR4452BDW. The burners turn 1/4 turn, then pull out. Yours should too.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
