Question about GE JGBP40 Gas Kitchen Range
Damsel in Distress!
My oven won't heat. Burners and broiler work just fine. I belive that I need to replace the ignitor. I want to do it right the first time, so I've some questions.
1. My model number is JGBP 40 BEh1WH, serial number MF248995P, is the part number that I need EAP243425?
2. I would like to see a diagram of how the part is wired, where can I find one?
3. Is there a possibility that I've miss diagnosed the problem, and if so, what else should I consider?
Any and all help would be appreciated!
SOURCE: JGBP33 BAKE IGNITOR
You did not post a complete model number, but this should help:
Take racks out of oven. Remove two screws at the very back of the oven bottom. Lift back side of bottom up and back a bit to remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader (one nut at center). ignitor is at the back left of burner, most likely a WB2X9154 (round style) ignitor. The entire burner can be removed rather easily at this point if you remove the two screws at the front and disconnect the ignitor wire (if you wish to have easier access to ignitor mounting screws.)

the ignitor has to be on before the gas valve opens up and until the stove recognizes a flame, if it doesnt the gas will shut off and the ignitor will cool off, If you use the self clean setting to clean the oven you will destroy the ignitor much faster because they are only rated for about 1000 degreese for just a minute and self clean keeps it around 800 for an hour or so. You may just need to replace the ignitor.

SOURCE: Gas broiler won't light
Turn off the gas to the range. Place a amp meter on the wire between the ignitor and the broil gas valve. Turn the control to broil. If the amp draw is between 2.5 and 3.0 the gas valve is the problem. This is for round ignitors. If the ignitor is flat,the amp draw should be 2.8 to 3.7.
The control board is the least likely problem.

Testimonial: "Thanks much for the suggestion. I will try it tomorrow and hopefully we can broil again. Good job!"
