The range takes an hour to pre-heat. Is this related to the regulator or could there be something else?
Answer Hello Tarun. 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
The burners on my stove work but the oven does not. You cannot hear or smell gas when the oven is turned on. I already replaced the igniter just in case but that did not solve the problem.
Answer Hello Janet,
You will most likely have to replace either the control or the gas valve. If 120Vac is getting to the gas valve, it is the issue. If there is no voltage to the gas valve the issue is most likely the control or the harness between the control and the gas valve.
I want to change from propane to natural gas, what is the part #?
Answer Frank, yo will need to order the NG orifices part numbers WB28K141 for the small burner, WB28K143 for the large burner, and WB28K142 for the medium burners. Flip the pressure regulator cap back to natural gas. Thanks!
I have a gas stove with an electric starter. The oven does not turn off. Would this regulator correct the problem? Thank you.
Answer Hi Gianni. The pressure regulator does not shut the oven off from cooking. The oven thermostat will control the temperature regulation of the oven. It is part # WB20K8. Make sure you straighten the sensor completely and curve it careful in bends. Re pack the insulation around the entry point into the oven cavity so it will retain the cavity heat inward and not burn the rear wires. Thank You.
Does this regulator work for LP?
Answer Hello Tom. Yes, you can use the regulator WB19K28 for LP, but it will need to be converted. Hope this helps.
Just ordered a pressure regulator for this GE oven. Are there installation instructions available? Thank you very much!
Answer Hello Jacob. These are easy to change. Just turn off the gas and disconnect the power to the range. Next remove the old regulator. Install the new regulator WB19K28 and use pipe dope on the fittings. Turn on gas and check for leaks. Hope this helps.
