Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

Broiler not working

We purchased a GE Profile JGBP90MEA3BC gas oven about 8 years ago. We used the broiler all of about 5 times before it quit working. That was probably 7 years ago. Well, yesterday the oven quit working, so I pulled out the igniters for both the oven and broiler. I tested them with a DMM and they both showed no resistance. The broiler one was obviously broken because pieces of the internal element were falling out of it. So I bought new ones and reinstalled them. The oven works fine now, but the broiler still doesn't work. Now I'm thinking it might be the controller board or blown fuse?? Any suggestions? It would be really nice to have the broiler working again.

    The broiler element does not glow at all and remains cold.

    Just tested the ignitor and got resistance so I know that is good (it should be it's brand new). I also turned the broiler on and tested the voltage on the connector (oven side) and got nothing. What could it be?

I have a GE Profile XL 44 gas range, Model #JGBP79BEA2BB, Serial #RV224810P. The Broiler works, the oven does not. I am fairly certain the problem is the round style oven Igniter. I am trying to verif

What have you got to lose , 25.00-65.00 I would see if the ignitor works . Have someone else turn it on while you watch underneath if it sparks the try to get it closer to burner .

GE Profile Spectra XL 44 gas oven

If you can smell the gas when you turn on the oven, it may be on a separate igniter that has gone bad. I would check this first. If you are not getting gas to the oven, there is possibly an issue with the supply line.

GE Profile Spectra Broiler not lighting

I'm not an expert, and I'm reading you're post while looking for a solution for our oven, so this is in no way should be taken as a suggested solution, it isn't!!! it is anyway: I think it might be a bad ignitor, I have replaced a couple on our stove and both times we had exactly the same symptoms you're experiencing, I think also we're in line for a third ignitor for this "less then 10 year old Magic Chef". Good luck
