Question about GE Spectra JBP84 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

GE Spectra Range JBP84D purchased 10/20/2008 as best my wife can remember she was never able to get self cleaning oven to clean. she thought that we had extended service hovever service says no. When you follow self clean procedure and then press start LOCKING light blinks but door latch does not lock and cleaning does not start. We tried shuting off power for over 12 hours then clock will blink and has to be reset, If we did it for shorter periods time did not have to be reset so we left if off overnitght, as local tech said that may reset computer chip.

    Every thing else works great. only does not lock door for self clean.
    Local service man would not work on it because he said everything is controlled by electronic panel in range panel He did not change me anything

  • jth5686 Nov 12, 2010

    he also said that this model is a high end range, if it was a lower end model no problem replacing individual parts

  • jth5686 Nov 27, 2010

    I have been busy so did not post answer to my problem that GE technician found.
    The door switch on this model is single pol dual throw
    if door is open light comes on, if door is closed power goes to controller for convections oven and cleaning control.
    He replaced the switch but the problem was actually caused by a loose connection to rear of switch. He tested the old switch it tested good but he had to put the new switch in because if the old switch failed it would be his problem.
    If some one had suggested the door switch instead of infinate switch I would have tsaved almost $200.00 not counting cost of Fixya.com

Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


It looks like you may have a bad Infinite switch. It controls the complete oven for bake, broil, and self cleaning. Remove all wires from the switch terminals. Set the infinite switch on high and place your ohmmeter on the L2, H2, P and H1 terminals to check for continuity. If there is no continuity between L1 and H1 or between L2 and H2, the infinite switch is defective. If there is no continuity between P and H1, the indicator light circuit is defective. Remove the infinite switch by removing the screws or nuts that hold it in place and install a new infinite switch by following the disassembly instructions in reverse order. You will not be able to find it at lowest; you will need to order it from a supply house. You can order this part at the following locations online... WWW.APWAGNER.COM, or WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM, or WWW.PARTSTORE.COM. All 3 of these places are a good place to order your parts because of their liberal return policy.


Please get back to us if you have any further query.

Have a nice day.

    Correct. But the symptoms that you mentioned is clear indication of a bad or partly bad infinite switch.

    I have seen similar cases with other customers and had to replace the same.

    Thanks

Don't know how to start the self cleaning oven. Please advise.


Most service techs will advise you not to use self clean features on a oven due to excessive parts failures from the extreme heat.

I don't remember how to use the self cleaning feature


Remove everything from the inside of the oven, lock the door if your model has a latch handle that you move from left to right to lock the door, then set the oven selector switch to clean.

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.
