Question about GE Kitchen Ranges

My gas range model number JGS968SOH33SS will not heat. Thermastat stays at 100 degrees. The gas burners and broiler work. Repair man says it can be a problem in the control panel. Any other things that it could be?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description, I`d suggest the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner is likely the problem. Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined.

It'll look like this...

** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any service...safety first**

since your boiler has the same ignitor ( some do some don't, only a model number would confirm or dismiss this...thankfully you provided yours ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case.

You can also ohm it out to test it as follows...

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "repairclinic.com", "searspartsdirect.com" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake & broil ignitor.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s.

Hope that help`s. It is very unlikely to be the control panel/timer contrary to what your repairman has said...in my opinion. Let me know if I can assist you further and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs.


Regards,

Macmarkus :)

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.
