SOURCE: Ge Profile XL44 - Everything works except the Oven, it just stopped

I figured out what the Issue is with my oven. I took off the back panel, a wire which runs from the teperature control knob to what I think mught be the thermostat is burnt off. I cleaned the wire and temporarily twisted it back on and the oven works now. I will call a tech tomorrow to replace the wire and put the tester on it to make sure the thermostat works properly so the wire wont burn off again or catch the oven on fire.

SOURCE: Oven wont light

Mine did that and I found the ignitor for the oven was bad. It was the "glow" type for pilotless ignition and it was burned out. It is supposed to glow bright red and the gas comes on and the oven will light. It was easy to tell that it was bad. But to check it I swapped the broiler ignitor with the oven ignitor and the oven worked.

Our LG range suffered from the "4" and "5" buttons not working, the large-to-small element selector not working plus several up and down functions not enabled. Technician unplugged the range, removed the back, unplugged and repluggged all the ribbon connectors. All works now.

SOURCE: My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range

Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)

It is possible the touch pad is not working. If you unplug the stove and the oven shuts off then it is more that likely the touch pad.

Me GE Gas oven is not working, but broiler and range do ?

I am working with model JGBP26WEH1WW GE Gas range: You do not need to remove the back or even turn over, just remove the storage pan at the base of the unit and disconect the two plugs (unique plugs). You will need to splice your old conectors to your new igniter. Yes you have the correct igniter for that model.

I have a GE oven that is getting an intermittent F3 or sometimes F2 error. I am an electronics technician. I just need to know what to look for to fix this problem. Thanks Model# JDP3980W188

F2 indicates that the oven detected an over temperature condition. This could be caused by several things including a bad temperature sensor or problem in the door lock circuit.

F3 indicates an open temperature sensor ... so likely the cause of both. It should read 1180 ohms at 70F unplugged from the controller.

I can send you the tech sheet if you email me at (include the details in your email).

Malfunctioning Display and Start Button for Oven

The problem is with your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board and/or keyboard overlay. All the oven features are controlled by the EOC. That's why you're experiencing problems with the oven operations, while the surface burners should be working fine. The cost of a new EOC varies between models. I tried to do a parts search, but could not find any information with the model number you provided. Double check your model number again. It should be located on a nameplate somewhere around the oven door or lower drawer opening. On some models, this information will be located on the back of the range.

To locate parts information, you can go to either or Just type in your COMPLETE model number in the Search menu. The part may be listed as an "Electronic Oven Control", "Oven Control", "Main Control", or "Timer Control". Both sites offer competitive pricing, but the Sears site has helpful illustrations that make part identification and assembly much easier.

Do you have a current warranty? Unless you purchased an extended warranty or service plan with your range, most manufacturers only provide a one-year limited warranty. In some cases, however, the manufacturer may have extended coverage on certain items. It may be worth while to refer to your owner's manual to see if there is any warranty information available.

If you go to there is some helpful information under the "Service & Support" heading in the drop down listing under the "Search" window. In addition, there are toll free numbers provided to assist you with any questions you may have.

I hope you find this information helpful to you. Replacing the part yourself will reduce the cost of the repair greatly (if not covered under warranty). Let me know if you decide to repair this yourself and need further instructions.
