Default Ignitor/Safety valve problem??
Model Number: JGS968S0H3SS   Brand: GE   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I kept on smelling gas while the oven was on so I figured I had an ignitor that went.. I replaced no problem... (thanks guys)
It worked for some time now, but I seem to have got another problem. There is too much gas being released in the oven when I first put it on. I motly hear a big whoosh and some times the door pots a bit. Is it the ignitor, the gas safety valve or something else. Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

Hello,

There are two igniters in the oven: Bake and Broil. Which one and when did you replace?

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for GE JGS968SH3SS Range - AppliancePartsPros.com

Visually inspect the bake burner for any blocked and/or burned through flame holes. Make sure the igniter is properly aligned with the burner lighting holes.

If there is nothing wrong then most likely the igniter is bad.

The igniter and the burner tube should be parallel.

Ok....... Thanks
If it is the igniter that is the problem, what could the issue be that the igniter keeps on "going"?
What could I check next?
Thanks for all your help!

I have no idea. Average live time for oven igniter should be 2-3 years or even more.

thanks...
I would like to check the amps to the ignitor. Are the wires to the ignitor accessible from underneath the stove or only from the back on this model?

Remove the oven floor and the flame spreader. You probably did it before when you replaced the igniter?

The normal reading should be more than 3.2 amps.
