Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP79 Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Hi...need help with my oven it won't heat up

Hi Mr. Bean-

Any help would be appreciated...GE profile model #JGBP79AEV1AA. The oven is not working properly. The broiler works, the pilots on the stovetop work fine but when I turn on the oven the digital display stays at 100 degrees and generates no heat. I took out the sliding storage bin underneath to see if there is any light but I see nothing. I'm not sure if it is behind a panel or it is not on....please help. Any advice is deeply appreciated.

I would love to be able to fix this myself without blowing up the family. If I am in over my head let me know and I will go oven shopping. Thanks....

If your surface burners work and the broiler operates normally, more than likely you have a failed igniter on your bake manifold. There are two separate igniters on your oven. One is for bake, and one is for broil. This is a common failure, due to the fact that the bake function gets used more often than broil. I found your part listed at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number and the igniter is listed as item number 1990. For instructions on how to replace the igniter, click on the following link:

Just make sure you turn off the gas and unplug the range before starting any repairs. If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Ge oven jtp18 elements won't heat


The limit switch in a Ge oven usually works or is blown. I would look at the oven sensor located at the back of the oven. It should read approximately 1k ohm at room temperature.

Ge profile oven lock button won't go off


  • 1.Press the "Clear/Off" button on the control panel to reset the oven. This will clear the lock setting and unlock the door.

    2.Allow the oven to cool to room temperature to avoid turning the lock on again during this heating cycle.

    3.Reset the oven to the temperature you require to finish cooking by pressing the correct temperature control on the control pad.

    or

  • 1.If your GE Profile microwave won't turn on, unplug it, then plug it back in. A power outage may have occurred due to a power surge. Check your home's fuses and circuit breakers.

    2.Set the clock of your GE Profile microwave. Certain models will not operate until you set the clock. Select the "Clock" key and type in the correct time.

  • 3.Hold down your microwave's "Off" button. You may have accidentally hit the control-lock feature on your GE Profile microwave. Hold down the "Off" button for three seconds to turn the lock off.

  • 4.If the sensors of your GE Profile microwave are not working correctly, remove the food from the machine. If the sensors detect food-surface temperatures over 200 degrees Fahrenheit, it will not work properly until the area cools down.

  • 5.Contact GE Support if you are unable to resolve the issue on your own. Call the GE Support hotline or browse the help library on the GE website. You can also schedule a service visit on GE's website.
