GE JGBP 40 Gas Range Ignitor Norton Style Glowbar Replacement

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!
Thank you.

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.)

Try doing a clean cycle for 4 hours to remove accumulated grease film from the ceramic surface. It worked for me

SOURCE: Kenmore Oven Problem

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.

I have a GE Profile XL 44 gas range, Model #JGBP79BEA2BB, Serial #RV224810P. The Broiler works, the oven does not. I am fairly certain the problem is the round style oven Igniter. I am trying to verif


What have you got to lose , 25.00-65.00 I would see if the ignitor works . Have someone else turn it on while you watch underneath if it sparks the try to get it closer to burner .

Our GE profile oven model JGsp31wet1ww oven will not heat up. When i set the oven to say 400 degrees, it just stays at 100 and never heats up. The broiler seems to work fine and the stove top gas burners...


pull out the racks and remove the bottom floor of the oven,turn it on bake,if the ignitor doesn't glow most likely it's bad,if it does glow and it doesn't ignite within 40 to 60 seconds the ignitor is bad.even though it glows doesn't mean it's good,it works by amps.it takes 3.2 amps.for a flat ignitor to open the gas valve and 2.5 amps for a round ignitor to open the gas valve.

Me GE Gas oven is not working, but broiler and range do ?


I am working with model JGBP26WEH1WW GE Gas range: You do not need to remove the back or even turn over, just remove the storage pan at the base of the unit and disconect the two plugs (unique plugs). You will need to splice your old conectors to your new igniter. Yes you have the correct igniter for that model.

Your glowbar ignitor for the bake burner is bad.
Use the attached diagram to show location.

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic
