GE Gas Range JGBS23SEM1SS – Burners work, Oven and Broiler do not

Recommended Posts

Hi,

GE Gas Range JGBS23SEM1SS, gas burners on top work fine.  Oven and broiler do not heat at all.  Oven worked fine yesterday and has had no indication that there was a problem until today.  

I removed the bottom panel inside the oven and tried turning the oven on.  The igniter shows no sign of getting hot at all.  Same when I turn the broiler on, the igniter appears to do nothing.

Just wanted to run it past the pros before I order parts…  should I just replace the ignitor?  Or is there something else I need to check as well?

Thanks!

Jeff

Are you comfortable working with live circuits and do you have a multimeter?

Thanks for the quick response! 

I’m not an electrician, but yes…  I have a multimeter and with some guidance I’m ok with testing a live circuit. 

Thanks!

If both bake and broil went out at same time I would suspect control board or gas valve. To test this set oven to bake or broil and test voltage to the igniter. You should recieve 120Volts to the igniter.

Bake/Broil same burner this model.

Before live testing, check continuity of the igniter, no glow at all is probably an open igniter.

Yes like Chat says there's only one Ignitor in this one. (I originally was thinking two because the way the complaint was written) 

if you pull Ignitor you will likely see the break.

I have a GE JGBP38GES that when the broiler is selected, the oven comes on. No glow from the broiler ignitor either. FYI - all top burners ops normally.

While I haven't noticed the oven coming on before when the broiler was operational, is that normal? Or does the oven circuit "see" the broiler not working and is trying to make up for the inop broiler?
