Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
Sorry I am new and am not sure where to ask my question. I am not even sure where to find the answer to this email. Suddenly I don't have any sparks coming out of my Ge gas range. i think that is is the spark module since I didn't see any broken wire. Does it make sense? Now a more serious problem. When I used the front burner the rear burner randomly will lit. I am not sure where the gas is coming from or how it lit istelflp up, please help Thank you someone in distress
The igniter is usually located behind the switch--it gives off a spark and such spark triggers the flame. I often adjusted its spark to directly hit the gas passage way but i wouldnt recommend it. You burner may also be too dirty- this may be the reason why you are seeing flames behind the switch( behind the switch is the initial gas passageway)... Do get an expert to do it!!!!

You say you have no sparks coming from your gas range, but your rear burner is lighting. That doesn't quite make sense. If some of your burners are lighting, then the problem can't be with the spark module. The spark module sends a spark to ALL the igniters at the same time. That is, EACH burner switch, when turned to ignite, will cause a spark to go to ALL the burner igniters at the same time. Just watch the next time you turn one of your burner switches on, and you'll see a spark at all the burners simultaneously. This is normal. I suspect that you have a bad igniter switch or wiring harness. For example, if you have a front burner that won't light, but WILL light when you turn on another burner, the spark is being provided by a working burner switch. This is also normal. Now, am I assuming that your back burner will not light properly, but will light if you use the front burner? If so, the burner switch for the rear burner is probably bad, or the wiring harness has a break somewhere. Now...if you have no sparks, as you say, but randomly a burner will light, then I would suspect a bad spark module. I hope I'm not confusing you here. In a nutshell: One burner doesn't work, but all others do - bad burner switch, or wiring harness. No burners light, or light randomly - spark module. I hope this helps you.
