Hi, happy returning customer. I have a GE Profile oven JGBP79WEW1WW. Top burners and broiler works fine but the oven will not light. If I turn the oven up to say 350, the digital temperature display only reads 100 no matter how long it is is on 350 and the oven does not heat. Broiler works fine and I know there is also an ignitor for the oven, but are they the same interchangeable part? I need the oven to heat. Thanks. Waiting on your response before I make my purchase from you.
ANSWER Hello. Check and see if the igniter glows. If not, test for power. If it is there, replace the igniter. If it glows, Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
