I have a GE gas oven model JGBP40WEH1WW. The glowbar / ignitor doesn't
glow (and the oven won't light). The broiler works fine. I replaced
the ignitor with a genuine GE replacement part, and it still doesn't
work. I used my simple neon circuit tester (similar to
) and it lit
when I turned the oven on, and stopped lighting when I turned it off.
(The part I got had no connectors, I had to cut the old ignitor's wires,
and splice in the connectors using the ceramic wire nuts that came with
the new part. I inserted my circuit tester into those wire nuts.)
I've searched for an answer, and can't find anything. Would a bad
thermostat cause this problem? There are no faults/error codes on my
stove's display. Any suggestions?
Yeah, after I sent my help note, my father-in-law stopped by with his
meter. We didn't know if it would mean anything, but we checked
continuity ohms and got nothing. I was just sitting down to post the
update. I take it we should have expected continuity?
