Question about GE JGBP40 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

JGBP28SEM1SS LP GE Range

We are having problems with adjusting the oven / bake LP adjustment. The broiler, & the top burners all work well. The orfice that is in the bottom bake rail is a 48 - 56 - - - size and we are wondering if the actual orfice hole size is accurate to the numbers provided & what to do next. Is the orfice hole too big or too small. No matter what we try in the initial adjustments, we can not obtain a steady bluish flame. Too much yellow that has scorched the inside sides of our oven.

    none of the "solutions" worked so far. We have tightened and untightened everything possible... we have changed the cap around, we have done everything the manual tells us to do.

    I believe the orifice for the gas valve (for the oven) is too large and there is no replacement part or a gas valve that fits there with a smaller orifice.

    This is a problem and I am really dissapointed at GE for not having a solution for it.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Prpane back to ng. Changed top burner apertures. Is there anything else I should do for the gas supply


The range burner orfices need to be changed to the natural gas ones. I am assuming when you say "apertures" you are talking about the burner orfices. If so then you have already changed the range burner orfices. There is also a orfice that usually needs to be replaced for the oven burner and top broiler burner (if you have a top broiler). And then there is usally a pressure adjustment required on the appliance gas regulator. This is usually adjusted by simply removing the regulator cap and turning over the spring tension plug inside and then re-installing the plug and cap.

Recently purchased Frig. gas stove.Want to convert from natural gas to Lp.Do you remove spud and insert Lp oriface in spud then screw spud back onto line?Lp oriface is a lot smaller than oriface for...


Not really sure which model you have but when converting the over, ether bake or broil burner you tighten down the orfice cap. If you remove the burner off the oven valve you will notice that you can put a wrench on the orfice cap. Just tighten snuggly. If you over tighten you will crush the orfice under the cap.

Ge propane kitchen range changed to natural gas.can't get the ove


Hi, Did you flip the cap on top of the regulator? As far as adjusting the bake/broil orfices, all you will nee to do is turn them 2 full turns counter clockwise. Start the oven and watch the flame. It should have blue tips as much as possible.
You might have to raise or lower the orfice adjustment as needed.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

Lp flames to top of oven


You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.
