Question about GE Profile Spectra JBP95 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven light switch shorted out.

After this happened, there was a strong burning smell. We turned off the power to this range. The burning smell resumes each time we turn on power to this range. Took off the back panel and there is a charring around some of the insulation surrounding two electrical connector locations, the two round holds in the middle of the white back panel.

My maytag mgr5729adw gas range oven omits a strong gas smell when attempting to preheat. Sometimes it heats sometimes it doesn't but use to get a small boom when igniting. Ignitor still glows oran


see the next steps and proceed with common sense: God bless you
Main Control / Oven Switch
The main control or oven switch may have failed. You will need to identify the wires from the switch/control that lead to the igniter that is clicking. These wires may pass through the spark module and change colors. Refer to the wiring diagram or tech sheet. If you have power leaving the switch/ control when in the off position replace the switch /control. Manual switches can be tested with an ohmeter.

Spark Module / Igniter Module
If your oven igniter keeps clicking the igniter module or spark module is the likely problem. First be sure the igniter is clean and the surrounding contact points are clean. Make sure power is off when cleaning. If the oven keeps clicking after it's cleaned and the oven switch / control checks good replace the spark module.

Bottom Burner in oven stays heated with 1/8th inch red illuminated section even when controls are off. Had to remove power from oven to resolve. Do I replace lower element? Or do I have a controller issue?


Turn power off immediately! Replace the element.

What is happening is the calrod element has a short to the case which returns to neutral. Hence you have 120 volts across part of the element that is not the side that the oven control switches to turn that element on.

DO NOT leave this on as the element may start arcing badly and burn the inside of the oven underneath it. The large breaker will NOT protect the wiring in the stove against this problem.

If you can't DIY, turn off power and call for service.

Bought used ge spectra range had to change the power cord to 3 prong to fit outlet--now nothing works except light when turning burners on and clock


Did you hear a "pop" or smell like something was burning? Sounds like old oven could have been 3 phase, and you new oven single phase, Check the power requirements for oven and see what kind of power you are supplying it with.

Smelling gas but not lighting


I've had ignitors fail that way, they don't always just burn into an open circuit. I'd advise replacing it.

Oven element burning without being turned on


no the element, but the thermostat that turns it on, you see the thermostat works like a light switch on the wall for the house lights, it's what turns it on and off.

Smeg Oven electric burning smell


My Smeg cooker worked fine for 5 years. Then I noticed that the fan which stays on after you turn off the oven did not ever turn off, unless you switched the oven off at the fuse box. I think this is a fan that cools the oven down, but some bit of it is now broken because it doesn't realise that the oven has cooled down. It smells funny when you first turn it on, so I don't know if that is an electrical fault smell. Model possibly 70cm A420-5, but could be an earlier model (bought in April 2000). Is double oven with 4 rings on top, 70cm wide.
