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.

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.

The oven and broiler work but the broiler flames up like its not getting enough air. the flame burns yellow


you may be correct with the air? is it LP or NG? air adjustment correspond with type of gas also the brass orifice you see going into the burner may be in need of ajustment, if its LP its needs to be screwed all way back even if it seems tight, screw it out away from burner ( clockwise) if NG then it's oppisite. hope this helps

When i turn my oven on, the flames come up into


If the burner pressure is adjustable(some are not) you can use a small adjustable wrench to turn the gas orfice to lower the gas pressure. The orfice is usually located in the broiler/storage comaprtment at the very bottom of the range. It is the brass piece that goes into the burner venturri and is where the gas comes out. If your turn it clockwise it will decrease pressure & counter clockwise will increase pressure. If the flames are coming into the burner compartment that is quite an increase in pressure!!! Make sure the the range did not have the gas regulator removed. If it was then that would explain why the oven burner pressure is so high.

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.
