GE Oven pilot light expands but no gas through tube!

2 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

GE Oven JGBS02PN4AD does not light. When turning on oven the flame gets brighter, but no gas through the tube! I think it might be the pilot assembly?

What are your thoughts?

If the pilot elongates when you turn the thermostat on and the feeler to the gas valve is in the flame, I would suspect your gas valve is bad.  Try heating the safety tip with more heat to see if it will open , could indiate a bad pilot assy.   Tap on the side of ithe gas valve while the flame is elongated to see if it will open.  If it will open by taping on it you know the valve is bad.
