Question about GE JTP20 Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

GE JTP20 oven. Do I need to replace light fixture after spark from a short?

New to me home and I did not understand how replace light inside of oven. Assumed I needed to unscrew the screws to remove bulb (only needed to unscrew the glass). After unscrewing the screws a bright flash happened and I noticed some char on the back of the light fixture as well as connection for a missing wire (that I assume burnt up in the short). When I look up into the area where the fixture belongs I see what looks like insulation but cannot see another end of a wire. Do I need a professional to take my oven apart to replace this wire, or is this a possible DIY project? Thanks

    Thanks for the quick response , however this is not a free standing range (it is a built in). Do I need to pull it all the way out to get the back panel? The light on this model is on the top of the oven by the way.

First, no First, no First unplug the range after you gently scoot away from wall. Then check youy main circut breaker for house to see if you tripped fuse. Then with stove still unplugged remove back access panel, look to area where light goes into oven. Check again and make sure oven is unplugged, then repair the wire by splicing wire with new wire line splice purchased at your nearest local auto parts store, sales person can show how to install. THEN plug in to see if you can see the light!

    Yes you will need to slide it out. Wiring for light is at the top of the oven. Please make sure the correct circuit breaker is turned off and make sure you have something nearby to set oven on to get to the light. You will find the oven is "hard wired" (wired direct to home lighting) to main electrical. Then follow same proceedure as I reccomended earlier.

SOURCE: GE JTP48 console wouldn't display after spark

if the console is not displaying then most likely due to the spark you have shorted the LED inside the electronic control and would have to replace the electronic control on the unit and there are 27 units with that model number. If you have the full model number I can provide schematics of the unit and the part that you would have to replace. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply Thanks Rick

The oven beeps and has a error F1


Hello,F1 means Stuck touch pad.
Usually means that either the touch pad or the oven control (also called clock or ERC) is defective and needs to be replaced. If this fault code cannot be canceled,replace the oven control(also called clock or ERC),touch pad,or both.

Thanks

Igniters will not stop clicking.


Hi


Thanks for using FIxYa.The igniter doesn't stop clicking due to a short inside the igniter circuit or due to moisture present on the ignition switch.Turn off the gas supply immediately and also unplug it from the mains power. Now take a blower or your hair dryer and blow hot air over the igniter. Also check for the following troubleshooting steps---


1) The gap between the igniter and the burner base is too large. *Should be approximately the thickness of two dimes.

2) Soiled igniter or burner base.

The above can be tested by switching the suspected burner with a known operating burner.

3) Loose wiring connections at the igniter, the grounding strap, or spark module.

4) Broken or pinched igniter wire between the burner and module.

Both of the above are physical inspections under the main top.

5) The module may have a week coil, which is not providing sufficient voltage to ignite the gas.

Even after performing these steps the igniter doesn't stop clicking then you need to replace the spark module.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
