Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP85 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

We have a GE Spectra XL44 model gas freestanding oven. There is a strong gas smell if we try to use the oven or stove top burners. When everything is turned off the smell goes away. The oven is about 7 years old now and we are trying to decide if we should buy a new one or try fixing this model. I was wanting to know if it could be a regulator problem and if so how much those run to replace?

Ray, sometimes the burners get gunked up. Remove the cap and burner and see if the small orifice that is located by the spark electrode is clogged. Clean it out with a paper clip. Make sure the burner cap has good contact with the burner. Catriver..post back.

Hi there,

Not sure that I can help but will give it a go. Often the igniter plastic covering comes off the wiring from the heat of the oven and the igniter arcs on a metal surface on the oven. I had this problem with a gas oven I had. Check along the igniter wiring to see if it is arcing. Best way to find it is to firstly locate the wiring then ignite the oven WITHOUT THE GAS ON. If it is arcing you should be able to see a little flash. Check to make sure it is flashing at the right spot first near the pilot. Easiest way to rectify this problem is to wind electrical tape around the igniter providing you can get to the wire. If you have to pull out the igniter you can buy a plastic product called Heatshrink from places like Tandy or Electrical Hardware Stores. Just put some Heatshrink or Electricians Tape around it and it should solve the problem. Only other thing it could be is the igniter needs replacing. Hope this helps.

Regards
Bryan

SOURCE: Bake ignitor Location

Hi Kurt, welcome to FixYA!
In the diagram below, Part #28 is your ovwn ignitor. (See the red markings to highlight it)
It is located underneath the oven floor, and the floor should come out by removing the two screws located in the bottom rear of the oven cavity. Take out the racks, take out those two screws, and lift the oven bottom up from the rear, then disengage the front lip and lift it out. I hope this is helpful info and thanks for allowing us to be of service to you.

SOURCE: Lower oven burner will not light.

Hi I have a older GE that the oven won't light. It is a gas range that is electric ignited. The top burners do work but the oven will not light. Is it pricey to have this fixed?

I have a GE XL44 gas stove the oven will not stay lite why?


That's bad. Sounds like the burner is dirty.
and the gas belive it or not is blowing the polit out it hit it so fast. The gas can't go in the burner. There should be two screws that hold it in place take it off and clean. See if that will work. Let me know.

Getting to the Pilot


Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)

Ge xl44 range gas smell


it's the safety valve, it's bypassing the gas. for you to put soup in there you will have to remove the oven burner. and put the soup on the tip of the orifice that's where the burner sits on.

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.
