The leg bone connects to the hip bone, the blue wire off tab 4 connects to . . .?

14 posts in this topic

What have I been doing New Year's Eve?

 

Lemme tell ya: I've been looking for wiring schematics for a GE Spectra XL44 (model #JGBP79MEF2BC) gas range. Since it seems that locating those would be akin to finding a unicorn, I figured I'd just ask someone what it is I need to know.

 

We recently went through an involuntary kitchen remodel when our piping went and life got ugly. We pulled our appliances and stored them, covered, in the garage for the duration. Upon reconnection, things went from bad to worse. We may have beaten the 10-year-old Bosch dishwasher into submission, but the GE gas range is still an issue. We've figured out that, after it was infested by rats, we needed to (1) scrub the beejezus out of it with bleach-based cleaning products, and (2) replace the left and right front burner tubes.

 

However, in his cleaning enthusiasm, my husband and one of his buddies disconnected all kinds of things but didn't bother to notice where they reconnect. We've gotten nearly everything back together except for one thing. There's a blue wire that connects at tab 4 on the control panel, runs down the back of the stove through a connector (extension) and then is supposed to terminate . . . where? My husband claims this loose end isn't his fault and that the dog ripped the wire out of something, but I'm not buying it. He blames other things on the dog that I'm sure are his fault, too, if you know what I mean.

 

So, here's what I'd like to know, if anyone can help:

 

1. Where does the blue wire want to terminate?

2. Is it responsible for or part of a larger assembly?

3. Does anyone have a wiring schematic for this model of range?

4. Is there a diagram or photograph of how the wire connects up and what it connects to?

5. Does anyone have a foolproof way for killing rats?

 

Please . . . help me to start the new year right.

 

:woohoo:

 

Thank you!

Good lord . . . my thread topic title should have included the word "connects", not "coonts". "Coonts" sounds like something my mother would wash my mouth out with soap for saying. Suffice to say, I can't find an edit button, or I'd correct my own seeming potty-finger accident before anyone sees it. Good thing it's still only 2012. If it were already 2013, I'd say I was doomed for another year.

... Blue = N, Broil.

I thought so, too, at first, but

"runs down the back of the stove through a connector (extension)"

Broil ?

Stays blue through connector E4, But if the connector he's talking about is for the broil ignitor, it changes to white at "B1" for the ignitor... Not sure about wording "terminate"

OK, let me see if I can clarify - when I said "runs down the back of the stove", that's me interpreting the guy who is working on it. What I can confirm is that the wire starts at tab 4 on the control panel, goes to another plastic connect "thingy" (my technical term for it), and then a wire comes out of the "thingy" and we don't know what that wire connects to (that connection is what I'm calling a "termination point" - meaning the wire connects to something and terminates at that point). I'm thinking the broiler connection is probably right.

 

The thumbnails Chat has provided are looking helpful. I was trying to find a copy of that wiring mini manual but couldn't locate it anywhere.

 

If there are additional/larger files that would help, my email is grumpyterrier@gmail.com.

 

Thank you!

Does the Broil Ignitor have any wires on it now ?

I will have to investigate that one, RegUS. Anything else I should check if I'm going in (or sending one of the boys in after it)?

 

Thanks.

Stays blue through connector E4 ("thingy"1), But if the connector he's talking about is for the broil ignitor, it changes to white at "B1" ("thingy"2) for the ignitor...

:wink:
