    Default GE Profile Spectra XL44 Gas Range - no gas flow to oven and broil burners

    Model Number: JGBP90MEB2BC
    Brand: GE
    Age: 6-10 years

    The 4 stove top burners all work nornally. Both oven and broil ignitors are glowing. Checked 120 VAC at the control panel between N and Bake, and between N and Broil when set to a specific temp. I would like to know how to specifically troubleshoot the dual safety valve. Thanks!

    Any wiring diagram of the dual safety valve? Hand drawn would be ok too. Thanks again!

    No wiring diagrams on GE, they don't provide them online.

    Are both bake and broil igniters glowing orange when you start each?

    Hi Jake,

    Yes they are both glowing orange, and the bake ignitor was just changed out for a new one. I will get the amp reading from the bake ignitor and let you know. Thanks for checking on the diagrams. It has 4 wires connected to the dual safety valve. 2 on top and 2 on bottom. I think the 2 white wires connected together are common. The other one on the bottom comes from the bake ignitor. And the other top connection is a blue wire that goes back up to the control panel or the broil ignitor? I will also check the resistance of all the electrical terminals on the dual safety valve. Thanks!

    Yes DJS, it definitely sounds like a bad safety valve since you already replaced the bake igniter glow bar.

    Here's the oven safety valve for your model you can order here:
    Manufacturer's Number: WB19K14

    Hi Jake,

    It's fixed! here's what I found during troubleshooting this issue. I checked the resistance on the oven safety valve to be 1.6 ohms on both sides. Then I checked the current to the valve while calling for bake and found 2.65 amps which is in the correct range. Still no gas flow to the oven when calling for bake or broil. Then I removed the incoming gas pipe to the oven safety valve to see if any gas was flowing and found none. So now I am looking and suspect a faulty regulator since the stove top burners were normal. As I am looking and feeling around the regulator I found a loose red tab behind it and noticed where it belonged. It fell off the regulator that holds the valve open to the oven safety valve. I was unable to put it on without taking out the regulator and then able to fit it on correctly. Not sure how if fell off, but that's all it was! Thanks for all your help!!!
