The whining on this GE gas range M#JGBS23BEA2CT starts shortly after the gas lights. The whining comes and goes. What can do about this; is there a FixitNow article on this?

After reading our appliantological shogun's post here (http://fixitnow.com/...ir-oven-repair/), I recognized my range problem. The "booms" aren't as dramatic, but they are there (cursed Nokia Surge from which I can't upload video). My customer's gas valve is less than a year old, though. Call in the warranty from Good Enough (GE)?

Is this on surface burners or oven? Sounds like a gas pressure adjustment is needed. LP or NG?

The whining occurs in the bake compartment, and the oven uses natural gas.

What color are the flames and tips?
Are the flames lifting from the base of the burner tube?
Is the gas cock turned completely on?
Is any soot being created?

Sensei Reg, I installed a new, flat OEM igniter two months ago.

The flames emit from the bake arm, and are mostly (i.e. 85% of the time) blue. There is a flame coming from the front, underside of the bake arm. I didn't turn the gas cock on; my partner did. There was soot before I replaced the gas valve two months ago, and there still is soot in the broil area.

I would remove,clean and inspect the bake burner. What you are describing sounds like a gas pressure or restricted gas flow problem. After cleaning the burner the air shutter needs adjusting for the optimal flame color. Pay attention to the burner where you see flame underneath. The burner may have a hairline crack. You may also need to adjust the nozzle on the gas valve.

No, I've replaced one other igniter at the first of the year.

Jumptrout, where's the air shutter and how do I adjust it?

Look where the burner tube attaches at the gas valve nozzle. The air shutter is at the base of the burner tube.

Speculation can cease, for the moment; the bake arm (http://www.repaircli...er=JGBS23BEA2CT) contains a pencil-eraser-sized hole at the igniter.

Here we go again. After some passive-aggressive complaint about "...I could've had a NEW range for what I've put into this one," the customer calls back.

I get there, pull the bake cover, and turn on the "BAKE" knob to 350. After a little over a minute, I hear a low volume, high pitch whine over the burning of the LP gas. The whine goes away once the temperature sensor is satisfied, and the gas valve closes.

The gas valve, bake arm, and hot surface igniter ALL have been replaced...what's next?

Have there been any adjustment to the orifice hood on the gas valve?

The range uses LP gas. Where on this image (http://www.repaircli...er=JGBS23BEA2CT) is the orfice hood?

It is the part the gas burner goes over.
Adjustable with a 1/2 inch wrench.
CW for LP ccw for NG.
The air shutter is at the base of the burner tube that goes over the orifice.
