GE Profile Gas Range Igniters working but gas takes a while to start flowing

10 year old GE Profile gas range that takes a while to light. The iginiters are sparking, but it takes about 30 and sometimes longer for the gas to start flowing. The gas used to come on immediately. Is this a problem w/the range or could it be something with the gas line?

    I have the same problem (on a JGSP23 range), but I think the proposed solution is wrong. The solution mentions the glow bar, which applies to the oven, and the problem is with the range top. Since all four burners exhibit the problem, I don't think it's a bad igniter.

    I should also mention that once the range is warmed up, the burners will re-start immediately. The 30 second delay in gas flow occurs only when cold.

    We have the exact same problem.  Igniters are working just fine, but it can take up to thirty seconds with the gas open for the gas to start coming out of the burners.  Gas comes right out when the range is warmed up, but the delay returns after it has been a while.

    igniters sparking, but gas flow takes awhile. when new, gas flow was immed, but now almost 30 s or more. seems to help if I turn on ALL the burners and then gas will flow sooner?

HI thanks for your question. the igniter is the cause for this problem. the heat from the glow bar is just not hot enough to ignite the gas. i would replace the igniter. thanks

Ge gas kitchen range 2 igniters work and 2 don't


Lift top upward & look under, you'll probably see small wire(s) running to ingnitors, see if perhaps wire fell off side not working.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


no gas flow sounds like a bad gas regulato on the stove. as for the 5 year old ge profile with ignitors not working, you need a part called a spark modual

Ge spectra gas stove top not lighting


There is nothing fancy about how the gas controls work on this unit. Do all burners give you the same problem? If so, it could be a kinked service hose or a service valve that has been partly shut. If it is limited to a single burner or two, the valve may be gummed up and should be replaced.

Make sure the pin on the regulator is pulled to open which will allow gas flow to the oven.  Let me know what you find.
