GE Oven does not light - no gas smell and no electronic ignition clicking sound

It worked fine one day and then it just didn't work at all. The stovetop burners work fine.

There is no sound of anything happening at all when started.
Gas oven does not work. Burners and broiler work. When oven knob is turned on, there is no glow at ignitor, nor any gas smell. Because there is no gas smell when it is turned on for 5 minutes, does that mean the control valve needs to be replaced vs the ignitor?

Thanks.

    I have precisely the same problem--the oven won't light but the burners and broiler are fine (Model JGBP28WEKWW). It worked last night, but not this morning. Was your oven successfully repaired?

    The answer to my July 21 question was to install a new oven ignitor. It has been working fine ever since!

    Am still working on determining which component is bad. Another website provided a free methodic route to take (using a multi-meter to measure ohms/voltage) in order to find out if it is an ignitor, valve, thermostat. Thanks for checking.

I have a GE Hotpoint stove/range model num 317B6641P001 that the oven will not ignite nor will the igniter turn on.


It sounds like the ignitor is bad...you will not or should not smell gas if ignitor is bad...gas valve is not supposed to open until the sensor by the ignitor has reached a certain temp. It's a safety feature. If you replace the ignitor, it should work like normal.

I had problem with the GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range try to turn the stoe on , clicking noice but no flame. smell lots of gas. how can I light the pilot light back, where is it?


This range doesn't have a pilot,it has an electronic igniter. If you are smelling gas while trying to light, your igniter is bad and needs to be replaced. Remove the racks from the oven. Remove bottom panel in the oven. Remove the metal plate that covers the flame spreader. The igniter will now be visible. Try turning on the oven again. Take note of how bright the igniter gets. If it stays a orangish color it needs to be replaced. It needs to get to an almost bright white,

Hi, To complete the circuit for the electronic ignition the 3 screwheads under the aluminum burner need to be really clean. The same goes for the 3 posts on the bottom of the aluminum burner. They touch to apply grounding for the ignition spark. GL!

My gas oven is not working-just used this afternoon for bread and chicken-it was fine-broiler and burners work ok


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

GE Oven does not light - no gas smell and no electronic ignition clicking sound


It probably needs an oven igniter. Remove oven racks. Remove oven floor. Usually 2 screws towards back. Remove flame spreader if it has one. You can see long tube with holes in sides and igniter with 2 wires from rear. Now try oven. See if igniter glows. If it does but doesn't light within 1 minute, replace igniter.
If it doesn't glow, you need to check for power to igniter. Should be about 100 volts. If not may need ERC, "Electronic Range Control".
