Check to see if there is something blocking the burner tube. It sounds like it is blocked.

According to the model number you supplied it looks like your oven use a glow bar ignitor not a pilot light. In that case there is no place to hold a fire. what happens with these when you turn the oven on 120 volts goes to the ignitor causing it to heat up ,the amp draw across the ignitor causes the gas safety valve to open, and then lights the gas. So if you turn your oven on you should see a bright red glow if not probably the the ignitor, to check it you would have to verify you actually have power going to it. If the ignitor glows but the gas valve does not open you will still need to replace the ignitor has to pull about 3.2 amps across ignitor to open safety valve. Your broil burner works the same way. And most of the ovens the floor of the oven comes out to allow easier acess to the ignitor. also if you have to change the ignitor put just a dab of dish detergent on the screws to help from stripping them

this is normal as after manufacture these units are stored before shipment and they put a coating on the elements and bake racks so they don't rust during storage

Does the bottom element heat up red hot?

If there is no spark at all then the circut is not being completed. The main problem that I had was that there was no ignition even though there WAS a spark and gas. I cleaned out the small pin hole sized inlet on the gas valve with a needle. This allowed the gas to enter the feeder and distribute the gas towards the ignition spark properly.

Also it is very important that the range be level. If there is a pitch to the range the gas may be exiting the distribution cap improperly resulting in improper distribution!

Hello,

The F3 error code means the oven sensor has shorted. To check the oven sensor disconnect or isolate the wire plug to it and on the plug at the sensor,use a ohm meter set to measure up to 2000 ohms and check the oven sensor at room temp. to be between 1060-1100 ohms if way more or much less the sensor is bad and needs to be replaced.
This is what the sensor looks like oldtech2332_71.jpgit will be inside of the baking chamber of the oven.

There are two cause for this condition one is the temperature sensor and the other is the main control board. Since the sensor is cheap and easy to replace I sugest you take that road first. If the sensor thinks that the oven is over heated it will send a signal to the board and shut the oven down and lock the door to keep someone from being burned, it actually thinks the oven is in cleaning cycle. Here is a link to testing the sensor for your oven.
http://www.applianceaid.com/oven_temp_sensors_help.html

The sensor may be inside the oven near the top it is going to have a tube that is filled with liquid, some come out the back others out the front most of the time it is not hard to do just be sure that you do not kink the tube on the new one or it well not work. If a new sensor does not fix the issue it will be the control board.

Hi

F3 Error indicates a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

Your model number was missing digits so I used this manual:
GRP17WEWWW
http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=981380002.PDF
and if your unit is older this one:
http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/Dispatcher?REQUEST=ShowPDF&FileName=49-8514.PDF

Automatic Ignition

The oven burner is lighted by electric ignition. To light the burner, press the pad for the desired electrical function and press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the desired temperature is displayed. The burner should ignite within 60 seconds. After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner cycles off completely, then on with a full flame to keep the oven temperature controlled.

Both the new and OLD units use a glow bar for lighting the burner. Most likely your Glow Bar has failed: GE PN: WB2X9154

The Glow Bar is item 316 this link:

If the glow bar is glowing and you still do not get ignition respond here and we can go through troubleshooting.

Hi, my name is Jason and I'll be helping you today. Chances are one of your ignitors, more than likely, the bake ignitor, has gone bad. Usually it is located under the bottom pan of the oven, so you will have to remove some screws to take that out. Once you have the bottom out, you'll see a long aluminum pipe, which is your gas line, and a piece attached to it with two wires coming out, which is your ignitor. It will either be a rectangular shape or a cylindrical one depending on the exact model. Turn the oven on to see if this piece starts glowing, if it does and it doesn't light the oven, then the ignitor is bad because it isn't drawing enough amperage to open the gas safety valve to light. If it doesn't glow at all you'll need to check to see if you have power going to it using a voltage tester. If there is power there then the ignitor is totally bad and needs to be changed. If there is no power then your oven control, be it electronic or manual, is not working properly and will need to be change. Chances are its just the ignitor, but be careful when testing with live voltage, and if/when replacing a part always remember to unplug the machine to prevent shock of any kind. Once the problem is isolated, get the complete model number, which will be located on a tag somewhere on the oven and call a parts distrubtor to order the part. A reliable place is appliance parts depot.

Hi, Error F7 on your oven means that the keypad is shorted or stuck and to resolve this issue you'll have to replace the Electronic Range control (ERC).
