Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My GE electric range has power. I have checked the breaker and all the wiring. The key pads, clock and lights do not work unless I turned a burner knob on, but nothing heats up oven or burners. What is wrong?

    Hello, I have fixed the problem. It was the circuit breaker only giving me half the 240 I needed so I replaced the breaker and it works fine now. Thank you for the response.

The first thought is that the control board may be bad, but this is a strange problem indeed. Here's a general answer to a similar question from repairclinic.com:

The non-electronic clocks on electric range/ovens often don't last long. That's a problem, because the clock is essential to the self-cleaning and timed-bake features. Clocks are rarely repairable--you usually just have to replace them.
Electronic clocks have been more reliable. But, they're often integrated with several other features of the range/oven. So when the clock develops a defect, it often renders the entire oven and broiler inoperative. The electronic clock is usually integrated with a circuit board, and the touchpad that holds the buttons you press is often a separate component. If your electronic clock is defective, you may need to replace the touchpad, circuit board, or both. Although these may be expensive, they aren't usually very complicated to replace. This doesn't explain why turning a burner know on supplies power, unless the burner knob is routing power to the clock panel. Try contacting GE to see if they have identified what causes this- they get feedback from their customers and may know what's going on: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/ Good luck, and hope this helps.

Electric oven and stovetop do not work, clock and oven light do.


Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts instead of 240 volts. Either a house electical problem or wiring in range. First go to your breaker and turn it off and on three times and give it a little extra push each time you flip it. ( You can actually flip a breaker off and on without resetting a blown breaker if you doni't push it all the way off and all the way on. If the breaker throws itself off do not reset it. You have an elecrical short in your house or range. If resetting the breaker does not work then you need to test for 240 volts coming into the range. We don't recommend you do any electical testing unless you know what you are doing with electicity. If you have 240 volts going to the range then unplug your range and remove the backing panel off the back of the range. Look for burned wiring or terminal blocks. If there is nothing obvious then you need to know how to read a wiring schematic and use a electical tester to go any farther. Let me know if this helps. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Burners, oven will not heat, all lights work


Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts. All heating elements require 240 volts to operate. Start by taking the covers off the back of the range and looking for loose or burnt off wires. Look first at were the range cord connects onto the range. If all OK with range wires, check wires inside range receptacle (where the range cord plugs in) and also the connections on the household circuit breaker or fuses. If you use a meter to test for 240, you may see it, but if a connection is poor, it may not be good enough to supply the required power.

GE JBP64 Radiant Range - won't work


This is a very strange one, and you don't say how old this unit is or how long you have had problems with it, but most likely you have a poor electrical connection. Turn the breaker off and unplug the range. Remove the cover over the receptacle you just pulled the plug from and check all the electrical connections. If all OK, check the electrical connections where the cord attaches to the range. If still OK, inspect additional range and household wiring to range, including the connections right on the circuit breaker.

Burners and oven not heating tappan range 560s111po1


You need to check the connection at the back of the unit that hooks to the house power. Turn off breakers or pull fuses before checking. It sounds like you only have half of the voltage you need. One of the wire connectors may be burnt or you may have a problem with the house wiring.

No power at all


sounds like you have a wire harness problem. Turn off the electric and take off the back panel. The two wires you want to be concerned with are the red and black that are coming off the terminal block. Check for burns or breakage.
