Question about GE JGBS07PEAWW Gas Kitchen Range
Please assist - I have followed the GE owner's manual and used a match and even tried a Scripto igniter to light the pilot and it never appeared to be lit. Do I need to replace the pilot mechanism and if so how difficult is that to do? I do not want to get ripped off by some repairman that sees me as an easy target due to my ignorance about oven repair. Does anyone have an opinion regarding home warranties -- does it make sense to get one? I have a feeling that parts of our other appliances may be sputtering out soon. Any advice would be appreciated.
Trey, this is not a hard fix. More than likley your ignitor for the oven has gone bad. It has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas valve. If you remove the bottom panel in the oven, should be 2 screws in the back and lift it out, you will see the flame spreader. Remove this, should be a couple 1/4 inch screws. Now you will be looking at the burner and ignitor. The part number for the ignitor is wb13k0021. The ignitor is held on to the burner with 2 1/4 inch screws. It is not uncommon for these ignitors to fail within 4 years....Catriver...post back.

The world today and gas prices.....people are even charging people to answer simple question as well in this world today.
long story short....i have a kenmore gas range and thought my pilot would not light, so in such for answer and a 300 hundred dollar extra protection ran out. nobody could answer a question without a buck in there hand.
solution. i give up.....as i give up after three hours. i decide to put everything back together that i ripped apart. i figured let me put the burner plates back on that my wife decided to take off to clean in which thats when hell broke loose. i thought she broke it trying to over clean the stove. anyways....problem solved.
the buner plates needed to be ON has a safety feature to the free standing gas range. in which everything ignited all well. so i hope this will help someone in the future... good luck to your problems cause i did not have any. well, i kind of did, did not cost me a thing but a night in the dog house.
kenmore freestanding gas range.
