Question and Answers

Q:

My oven top burner (Broiler) and ignitor function properly. The bottom burner is not working.

A:

Check to see if the ignitor is glowing when you have the oven set in the bake mode. The second image below shows the theory of operation for the glow bar ignition system in this oven. If the ignitor is not glowing, then you could have a wiring failure or a bad relay on the electronic oven control board. The wiring diagram for this oven is shown in the first image. The bake circuit is traced in yellow and the broil circuit is traced in violet. The broil circuit is apparently okay since the broil burner works. You can check the bake circuit by conducting this test:

  • Shut off the circuit breaker to disconnect electrical power.

  • Access the control board using the procedure shown in the second image below.

  • Switch the purple and the yellow wires on the control board so that the bake burner circuit will be connected to the broil relay on the control board and the broil circuit will be connected through the bake relay.

  • Reassemble the oven and power it back up. Set the oven in the broil mode and see if the bake element ignites. If it does then the circuit except for the bake relay on the control board is okay. Check to see if the broil igniter glows when the oven is set in the bake mode. This can help you verify whether the bake relay on the control board is bad.

NOTE: If you are not confident that you can safely conduct this test, I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair the oven. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .

This test can help you determine whether your problem is in the circuit or the control board. If the control board is bad, you can order a new one from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the control board is WB27T10267. Here is a direct link to that part: Oven control . Be sure that you shut off the circuit breaker before accessing internal oven components.

If the bake relay is apparently okay, you could have a problem with the safety gas valve or the wiring in the bake circuit.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

Q:

ge gas oven not heating properly JGRP17WEW4WW Ge Gas wall oven

A:

Your symptoms point to a problem with the bake burner igniter (part WB2X9154).  The theory of operation for the ignition system in your oven is shown in the image below.

 

Note: If you cannot view the image from the Sears PartsDirect website thread, you can copy and paste this URL into your browzer to view the thread on the Manage My Life website: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/337016-ge-gas-oven-heating-properly-jgrp17wew4ww-ge-gas-wall-oven 

 

Here is a link for a brief video that illustrates that ignition process in the oven: Gas Ignition Operation.  (You may need to visit the above URL to view the video.)

 

Since the bake burner is not working properly, that igniter for the bake burner will probably need to be replaced. If you want, you can shut off the house circuit breaker for the oven and then switch the bake and broil igniters to see if the bake burner will work properly. If it works after switching the igniters, then this verifies that the weak igniter is causing your problems.


You can order the igniter from this page:  Igniter Part WB2X9154 for GE Oven Model JGRP17WEW4WW. 

 

Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breaker and the gas supply to the oven before accessing and replacing internal components. 

 

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
