Question and Answers

Q:

GE Oven Won't Light

A:

I know how important it is to have a good working oven in the home so that you can cook up some baked goods. I am sorry for the inconvenience and I did manage to find a link that will provide you with some good information. I hope this helps with your oven troubles, while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Yes, if just the bake igniter was broken, the broil igniter would still operate providing it's not broken.

It would be unusual for both bake and broil igniters to quit glowing at the same time providing the broil igniter was working prior to the bake igniter failing.

It's not likely an oven control board failure but it's possible. It's also possible to have a broken bake and broil igniter too. The bake and broil element has a common neutral supply and if it lost the neutral, both igniter will quit working. The bake and broil power supply is supplied to the igniter when the bake or broil relay closes. The voltage path is in series with oven safety valve. If the oven safety valve as an open circuit, it will break the voltage circuit to the igniter. You could diagnose which component is faulty by disconnecting the igniters and checking them for continuity with an Ohm meter. You can also disconnect the oven safety valve and check it too with the Ohm meter. The electronic oven control voltage output at the bake and broil relays with one meter lead and the other meter lead would have to be placed on the Neutral. NOTE: I do not recommend making voltage measurements unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so; otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your GE range.

I added an image below of the best wiring diagram I could find. I traced the igniter circuits in red and green. Red represents the line voltage and green represents the return. I circled the components in the circuit to check.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for the excellent response and I'm sorry for not getting back to this more quickly. I did as you suggested using a voltmeter and when I read across the bake ignitor I got 110 volts and I didn�t think it should get any volts�if it were closed then it would open the gas valve. Does it sound like I have a bad bake ignitor?

A:

Sam: If you measured 110 volts across the two leads connecting the igniter, the bake igniter is broken. You should measure 110-120 volts at the igniter wires.

Q:

I have a GE Spectra XL44 Model Number Jgbp35ded2ww whose oven will not light. When I turn on the oven or broiler I hear a click, but the ignitor does not glow.

A:

Having an appliance not working properly and hearing clicking noise can be really frustrating. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I suggest you set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Have a nice day!

A:

You are correct about that broiler ignitor still glowing if just the oven ignitor is bad. It would be very unusual for both ignitors to go bad at once. You could have a problem with the safety gas valve or the electronic control board. The wiring diagram for that range is shown in the image below. That clicking indicates that the control board is apparently closing the relay to send voltage through that circuit. If the ignitors are getting voltage from the control board but not glowing, then you could have a wiring failure in that circuit, a bad safety gas valve or a failed ignitor. You can unplug the range and check the resistance through that safety gas valve using a volt/ohm meter. The resistance will normally measure about 1.7 ohms through the safety valve for each circuit. If that safety gas valve is bad, then it will need to be replaced. If that safety gas valve is okay, then you can check the wiring in the circuit (with the range still unplugged ). If you find not problems with the wiring then the next step would be to check the voltage coming out of the control board. NOTE: You should only check that live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when measuring that live voltage. Unplug the range as soon as live testing is completed . If you are not getting voltage out of the control board then that component will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from this page: GE Spectra XL44 Gas Range Model JGBP35DED2WW Parts . Be sure that you unplug the range and shut off the gas supply before accessing and replacing parts.

NOTE: If that safety gas valve needs to be replaced, I recommend that you have a service technician complete that repair. The gas connections on that component will need to be properly sealed and tightened. The component will need to be properly leak checked. Improper replacement of that component could result in a dangerous situation such as a fire .

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
