Hi

I'm hoping someone can help me. I have a GE gas oven model number JGBS17PEK1WWthat has stopped working. It will not ignite, and there isn't any gas comeing from the burner. just before it stopped working we were having trouble with the tempature always getting up to the setting we had it on. I've replaced the thermostat, and the oven safety valve, but this has not fixed the problem. Anyone have any advice or help?

Cool Just replacing parts without any testing?

What is the ignitor doing at that time?

You can read about how common gas oven ignition systems work and the observations and tests necessary to start diagnosing problems with them at the following link:

There isn't much else in such an ignition system besides the ignitor and the wiring. As long as it is glowing (indicating it is at least getting power - but NOT necessarily that is is "good"), the ignitor is usually ~70-80% chance of being the troublemaker in such an ignition system.

Question Test rather than guess

It should be easy enough to check to see if the ignitor was responsible for certain rather than just guessing. As long as it wasn't glowing at all, the ignitor would have to be electrically open (have no continuity) to be the cause which can be determined with a simple continuity test.
