Question about GE Spectra JGBP35 Gas Kitchen Range
I have the GE Spectra Oven JGBP35BEA5BB and the lower (oven bake) will not turn fire. Generally happens every weekend, go figure! Now I am about to purchase a new ignitor and install it. Is it better to buy a GE part or will other after market parts work. Just looking at the cost factor. $90.00 vs $48.00. Fairly easy repair. The stove is 6 years old.
It works fine during the week, but always seems to choose the weekends not to work.
As long as you replace the existing igniter with one of compatible specifications, you should be okay. The type of igniter you have is called a Carborundum and produces 2.5 to 3.0 amps. I found a replacement at searspartsdirect.com for about $68. Just type in your model number and look under the "Gas Burner Parts" heading for item number 28 (part #WB2X9154). The part number used by Sears is the SAME number used by GE and sells for about $30 less! I also found the part listed at repairclinic.com for about $64 (item 1990). Click on the following link for a complete explanation of the igniter types and how to replace:
If you can find the part for less, that's great. Make sure you use the GE part number as a cross-reference to ensure you are getting the correct igniter. I hope this helps you.
