Sopunds like a little to much gas is being released upon first inital start up, then igniting extra gas causing the "puff", i might check the oven bar under the oven floor, perhaps the little holes in the burner bar have become clogged . ofthe electrode is a little to far from the bar try twisting just a little bit closer(careful thougfh you dont wanna break it)

Gas oven is slow to ignite & preheat


What kind of range? Taking that long to ignite and small flame. Sounds like both weak ignitor and safety valve is not opening.

Very small flame takes like ten minetes for flame to get high


Hello,

The reason the flame in the oven is so small and takes for ever to heat up is because the oven igniter is weak and can not open the gas valve very much so hardly any gas flows resulting in a low flame size. By replacing the oven igniter the flame will be full size and heat quickly.

I had problem with the GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range try to turn the stoe on , clicking noice but no flame. smell lots of gas. how can I light the pilot light back, where is it?


This range doesn't have a pilot,it has an electronic igniter. If you are smelling gas while trying to light, your igniter is bad and needs to be replaced. Remove the racks from the oven. Remove bottom panel in the oven. Remove the metal plate that covers the flame spreader. The igniter will now be visible. Try turning on the oven again. Take note of how bright the igniter gets. If it stays a orangish color it needs to be replaced. It needs to get to an almost bright white,

The fan is working bt the oven isnt getting hot


I assume you have already checked the gas supply by turning on a burner on top.

Do you smell gas when the oven first tries to light? If the flame sensor isn't picking up a fire on the oven burner within a few seconds after the igniter is supposed to start firing, it will shut off the gas valve. The first thing to check is the oven igniter. Can you hear it sparking (repeated snapping sound until main flame starts)? The sound may be drowned out by the fan, so hearing it would only verify that it's making sparks; not hearing it doesn't tell you anything unless you were able to hear it before the problem started. If you had a major spill in the oven recently, it's possible some residue made its way to the igniter or pilot flame tube and is gumming up the works.

The next items to check would be the oven gas valve and thermostat.

Oven will not turn on. the gas burners are working. i don't smell gas, however, the oven will not heat up. any suggestions? we've had this range for about 5 years, and this is the first problem we've had...


the gas oven is ignited by a small electric element that glows red at a pre-set current it opens the gas valve and ignites the gas 9/10 times its as simple as replacing the igniter. the other 1 is a gas valve or the themostat control or a board ...try the igniter first cheap "relatvily" easy and you can probably do it your self ( if you are so inclined) Good Luck turn off the gas turn off the electricity and work carefully

The electric spark lights the gas at the spark area but the rest of the oven flame never materializes and the spark continues to click even though the initial flame is there


Make sure the thermocouple from the gas valve is in the pilot flame. If it is and you have no ignition,replace the gas valve. The clicking stops once the oven ignites.

Tappan gas kitchen oven will not heat


Almost always a weak oven igniter. Remove oven floor by removing 2 screws at rear of floor. Remove flame spreader from burner, if it has one. Turn on oven and see if igniter gets red. It's the caged thing on burner tube. If it does but doesn't light gas, replace igniter. UNPLUG UNIT FIRST!!
Put dishwashing soap on threads of 2 screws holding igniter in place. This will allow it to come out easier. Do-not use oil. It will make your oven smell like a diesel truck.
Remove screws. You will have to remove drawer in front. Underneath you can fin wires from igniter. These will be cut at igniter and connected to igniter with enclosed wire nuts. The 2 wires to igniter go either way.

Gas smell when oven turned on


CALL THE GAS COMPANY AND TELL THEM YOU SMELL GAS ... SOME GAS COMPANIES STILL COME OUT FOR FREE TO CHECK. DO NOT TELL HIM A BUNCH OF DETAILS. JUST THAT YOU SMELL GAS AT THE STOVE. CHANCES ARE YOU WILL GET A NICE GUY WHO MAY TELL YOU EXACTLY WHATS WRONG AND FIX IT. EVEN IF THEY CHARGE YOU CAN PAY THEM IN SMALL AMOUNTS EACH MOTH FOR THE BILL. 50 SECONDS IS TOO LONG ...THE 20-40 SECONDS ALLOWS FOR THE SLOW STEADY INCREASE OF GAS FLOW TO START ... TO AVOID THE GAS COMMING ON AT FULL PREASURE AND CAUSING A "HARD IGNITION" OF THE BURNERS. THE GAP AND THE CORECT DISTANCE OF THE LOCATION OF THE IGNITOR TO THE BURNERS SHOULD BE CHECKED.THIS GAP IS USUALLY IN THE SPEC. MANUAL. ALSO MAKE SURE THE FLAME SENSOR IS IN THE FLAME. FOR THE FACT YOU SAY THIS IS HAPPENING TO BOTH UPPER AND LOWER BURNERS LEAVES ME TO THINK THE GAS PRESSURE IS NOT CORRECT GOING INTO THE APPLIANCE ... THE GAS COMPANY WILL CORRECT THAT. GOOD LUCK AND BE SAFE !!!! Joe_Rex
