Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question


The oven will not come on in the GE gas stove that we have. The house is only a few years old and the appliance is like new. The oven has been working up until yesterday but now the stove top burners are fine but the oven will not start heating up. The electronic control panel will allow you to select Bake and select a temperature but when you hit the keypad to start nothing happens, no clicking, no gradual increase of the temperature, etc. The GE manual doesn't give you much other than calling their service guys. I read something on the GE site that discussed "re-setting" of the electronics by unplugging the stove and plugging it back in. Is this adviseable and could it hurt anything else? I presume this could also be an oven ignitor problem?? Thanks for the help! __ Larry

Small gas leak smelled inside house from GE Adora (just 2 yrs old). Have moved stove and have put soapy water with paint brush on every connection including regulator...don't see any leak evidence...any...

You may have to use dish soap straight, do not use the brush. I use an old spray bottle and dish soap straight, not watered down, to find my leaks. Gas is a very low psi. Soapy water will not bubble up. It can and will just be pushed out of the way. Do not forget any other gas appliances in the house, hot water heater, stove, any thing that uses gas. Please check all. Recheck your stove and even any connections inside, on/off valve etc. Hope this helps Fixya up.

I turn on the stove and it lights and then it dies, then it won't turn on anymore. The other pilots don't turn on either. It worked this morning and when I came home this is the problem I encountered.

Ok, now that I know it's natural gas, what I would like for you to do is fire off the other gas appliances (furnace, water heater, etc) you have in the house to see if you having a similar problem with them as well. If so, you may may a regulator problem (at the meter) and will need to contact your gas co to replace or repair their equipment. If not, and the problem is isolated to the stove only, then you may have a defective appliance regulator, which supplies gas to all the burners on the stovetop and the oven. How old is the stove? Is it still under warranty? If so, you can call G.E. and have them service the stove for free.

My GE XL44 Gas Range (Model JGBP34 GEP 1A) control

If you like the stove and it in good shape otherwise, have it fixed. The parts are still available. The stove in good used condition (without leak) is probably worth $75.00. May cost that much to repair it. Will cost approximately $450.00 to replace it with equal range. If it's a standing pilot model (no electricity needed) they are unavailable and your new range will require power to use the oven. Hope this helps.

I just moved into a house and the GE oven appears to be approx. 16 years old. The oven will not cook between 300 and 450 degrees. It will either undercook or burn the food.

16 Years old? Sounds like you need to buy a new one. One thing you don't want to do now is to start putting lots of money into an old appliance.

Oven takes FOREVER to pre-heat

You probably have a bad heating element. Trip the breaker and make sure that all power is removed from the stove/oven. Remove the element, and test it for continuity. If it tests open, obtain a replacement from an appliance parts supply house. If it tests good, you should suspect either a bad switch or thermostat.

GE oven ignitor replaced, gas turns on but no flame

Yeah, blowing up the house is never a good way to replace an appliance :)

Try contacting GE at: It should be free and they'll be able to help you narrow down what's going on.

Alternately, new GE ranges start at a little over $400 at Home Depot... You certainly have to appreciate keeping a good appliance going, but if it starts nickel & dimeing you, it may be that range's time to go.

Stove won't stay lit!!

So, you cleaned the burner per the manual (or the one you looked at when visiting the appliance store,) and it still flames out right after coming on? Sometimes things catch in the works and there are a few methods to clear them out (e.g. at the controls) depending on the model. Beyond that,in order to disconnect the stove and check the inlet filters, you might want to call the appliance or gas co for a technician. No use having leaks, searching forever for the main shutoff valve, etc.
