Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP79 Gas Kitchen Range
My control panel doesn't work. No display, no control on the oven. The range lights work, the range top ignites and runs fine but no oven controls. No clock, nothing. Could the control panel be cooked? Is there a fuse to replace some where? Is it less expensive to replace the oven than the control panel?

It sounds like the controls have been placed into a lockout mode. If your model is a JGBP79 do the following:
1) Press the BAKE and BROIL HI/LO pads at the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
2) Press the SELF CLEAN pad. The display will show LOC OFF.
Now here is where the directions are kind of confusing, I will give it as they say it:
3) Press the SELF CLEAN pad again. The display will show LOC.
4) Press the START pad to activate the control lockout feature and leave
the control set in this special features mode.
Seems to me if its locked already, you would just do steps 1 and 2. And if you wish to lock it do steps 1 thru 4.

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven
ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas
valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately
(see the link below).
In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two

The good news for you is that your gas provider, the folks who bill you for the gas offer a free service whereby they will send out a technician to adjust your stove for no cost.
