Default GE oven igniter
Model Number: JGBP35AEA2AA   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


1. I am in the process of replacing the oven igniter. I cannot remove the entire spreader because it is connected by more than one screw. I was able to access the front screw, but the two at the back are inaccessible without taking other parts out and I would need instruction for this. I was able to tilt the spreader and remove the 2 screws with great effort. This is the second time this igniter is being replaced. A GE technician did the first replacement and apparently cut one of the wires too short to reach down in the oven. I can touch the cap, but not work with it. The other wire is easily accessible. Would it be safe to cut the wire closer to where I can handle it? This would mean that one wire would be capped twice. Is that safe to do? If not, please tell me how to dismantle the next level to get at where that wire is capped, since I can't pull it up any closer. I don't want to take any more of the oven apart than necessary. I am trying to do a repair job, not rebuild the oven, but if I have to I will.

2. Once the igniter is replaced, if the oven still does not light, what other part could be defective? Please advise on how to troubleshoot and detect the problem. If it is a control module, please tell me where to locate such device and how to test it. If it could be the thermostat, please identify where to locate it and how to test it, etc.

Please respond ASAP.

Thanks,

Terry

You do not need to take off the spreader. Once the bottom is removed and you see the burner and glowbar, you can remove the 1 screw at the burner bar up front. Next, remove the oven drawer, and in the backwhere the burner goes into the valve, you will see 2 screws holding it to the back wall, remove those 2 screws and you will be able to lift the burner up and get to the screws to remove the glowbar. the new glowbar wires should be long enough to make a new connection, you can connect everything from where the drawer was. To check the glowbar to see if it is bad, you need to take a resistance reading, should be between 50-150 ohms if not it is bad. keep us posted
