GE JGB918SEK3SS gas oven burner not igniting

6 posts in this topic

We have a GE JGB918SEK3SS gas range and the gas oven burner will not ignite. The igniter glows red hot but the burner never ignites. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Check the amperage draw on the ignitor.  They will glow like they are good but the resistance cops put so they do not get enough amps to open the gas valve.   Change the ignitor if the draw is less than 3.25 amps I believe.

Is it just the bake burner not lighting or is it bake and broil burners not lighting?  If neither are lighting might be the safety/combi valve.

You could swap the Bake and Broil Ignitors, for now, if not used much

Only the bake burner wasn't igniting. I moved the broil ignitor to the bake burner and that fixed the problem. Great suggestions by all and we nailed it on the first try. Now I just need to buy an ignitor. Thanks to everyone for the help!!
