Ge profile specrtra gas stove JGBP85WEB5WW

Got zapped during an electrical storm. Power went out to the stove, from a 220 outlet stepped down with an adaptor to 110. I plugged it into a regular live outlet and it sparked / arced. I pulled the plug, it didn't blow the breaker. I dismanted the stove until I found the door locking mechanism fried. It appears a micro switch is vaporized on the mechanism. I don't know if replacing the part will fix the problem or only fix it until I plug it in again. Is there some typde of voltage regulator I should have checked before replacing the door lock? I tried plugging it in without the part, but loose wires sparked, I didn't tape them up, however the clock & ignitors work but the display reads door locked.

    It's a 220 VOLT plug stepped down to 110 VOLTS (not amps). The service is 100 AMPS

There is one way to try to solve but it will involve lot of patients and say workmanship... first thing u need to trace the wires inside and check for all electrical compartments see for burn outs like u said in the door mechanism and clear one by one... but for this again u need electrical knowledge to service.. not much can be explained thru here.. cos even a minute mistake will blow it again... so take ur time and do it... also u need to clean them for healthy operation too..
Thankyou

Hello:

Thats dangerous! You fix it by yourself considering that you are expert enough to do so.
You should isolate each parts that is busted or burnout and then replace it one by one.

recommendation: leave it to the expert to check it personally for you. or call repairman in your location.

    Since you plug it to wrong voltage outlet, Yo should see to it that some parts is ok, You check the voltage regulator. if you plug in and there still power means that fuse is ok. besure to check it carefully before you do some replacement in the sense that when other parts got errors the system will not function correctly.

    good luck!

Sounds as though it was a bit jerry rigged when installed. You had a 220 amp plug with an adapter for 110, but you only have 100 amp service. You need an appliance repair person to even make the appliance safe to use again...

If something sparked when you plugged it, there were electronic components that might have been fried. Go to nearest appliance repair center or electronic repair services and have them check the circuit board for possible part replacement.

Where do i find the pilot light on my ge profile gas stove


Are you sure it has one? A lot of the newer model gas ranges are "pilotless ignition." I had one that did and it had to be plugged into an electrical outlet and the outlet for some reason quit working, so the igniter wouldn't work either...

Try unplugging the oven and let sit for 10 min. This will reset the curcuit board and reboot the electronics. You may have to pull out the stove o get to the cord.

GE Profile Gas cooktop stove- buzzer won't stop


Unfortunately you have to wait until it dries out. I have tried hairdryer before but most of the time I have had to leave it off overnight. FYI if you dont shut off at the circuit breaker and the sparking continues it will short out and definitely get worse

Electric range burners and oven element just stopped working. Burner indicator light came on and oven temp setting displays correctly. Clock went into set mode automatically, though. Burner came back on...


check the power behind the stove, the outlet for 220 volts, i just fix one with the same problem, it was getting 110 volts but not the 220 volts. so there was nothing wrong with the stove but with the power source.when the stove indicator lights work and the clock, it means that only 110 volts are coming to the stove.

GE profile stove, Gas-electric


All oven elements are 115/130 VAC. Stoves use 220/240 so that you can use both the burners and Oven at the same time. Since the burners are Gas, then 220/240 VAC isn't needed.

(Note: 220 is simply dual 110 hot leads with a common ground)

im assuming you dont have to light the pilot.if thats the case and you replaced the ignitor assembly it could possibly be the ignition module/board.

It sounds as if you might have a problem with the gas valve for the oven. This is something that I would not reccomend that you try and fix yourself.

No power...


If the stove was on without the hood fan's being on, it could have put too much heat in the "innards" of the microwave. It may have opened the thermostat or thermal fuse located inside - either on the chassis of the microwave or or the magnetron. It will look something like the one in the attached photo. For helpful exploded view diagrams and to order any needed parts, you can visit the GE parts Web site or the Sears parts Web site at http://www.geappliances.com/shop/prts/ or http://www3.sears.com/ (the 3 is correct) In my profile, you can find a link to my site, where you can find critical safety & disassembly tips. Post back if you need more help.
