HelloCustomer

Since you were using the broiler I would suspect the broiler igniter blew out. Look at the broiler burner , in back mounted to the burner is the igniter. Two kinds - round or flat but work the same - silicon made in a spiral encased in an open metal case. They get very hot very quickly and that is what lights and keeps the burner on. So inspect that.

this keeps the oven from working also? the broiler had been lit for a couple minutes when this happened
Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 6 years ago.
Well not normally but if it shorted out it could have damaged the entire circuit but still take a look at that igniter because you need to find what popped before you go any further.

Replaced both igniters and oven nor broiler are working still. Broiler igniter was definitely blown. I do not see 120 v at the igniters when the oven is turned on. I hear the relay click What now?
Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 5 years ago.

OK,

I will now need the model number of range to look up wiring schematic.

Thank you

Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 5 years ago.

OK,


You will need a volt-ohmmeter to do the following . Unplug and remove the back of range. On the electronic control board there is a 5 pin connector, there are two small white wires in this connector , set meter to ohms and measure these two wires - should get about 1100 ohms ( this is the oven sensor ) If that checks OK next plug range back in and on this same board with meter set to AC Volts measure from L ( red wire) to N ( white wire) should get 120 volts , if you do now set control to Bake and hit start you should now get 120 volts AC from N to BA ( yellow wire ) If you got as far as the very last check but no voltage from BA to N the electronic board is bad . Here's the part number WB27K10049 . One place to get it is www.partselect.com

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Thank you Tom. I get about 1 volt between Ba and N. When I put that part number in the search it says the control board is for a JGBP31WEC4WW. Will this work fine in my JGBP30WEA6WW?

Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 5 years ago.

Sorry - correct part number is XXXXX all the the other voltages and ohms check OK ?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Everything else measured as you said it would.


Some places online have said the new part number for the control is WB27K10143


Is t08-2k a type of control or just another part# XXXXX the same control?


Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 5 years ago.

You'll find all kinds of numbers on this board . Everything but the GE part number . They are vendor numbers of some kind but nothing you can cross to a part number. All GE part numbers start with a W next letter B for ranges , R - refrigerator , H - washer , E - dryer, D- dishwasher, J- air cond., S - water product

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

The reason I ask is that there are several t08-2k Ge controls that are a varying amount of $. Yet they all are genuine GE parts that look just like the one I have. And the WB27k10143 is supposed to have replaced the original part. I do not want to spend any more than I have to cause I am looking for a job right now.


 

Expert:  Tom Goellner replied 5 years ago.

The cheapest place I found to get the part using the second part number WB27K10143 ( which is the latest sub for WB27K10050) is www.repairclinic.com for $119.00 I can't tell you about the t08-2k parts you are coming up with - they may look alike but might not fit or have the right circuitry - don't go that route . Use the correct GE part number - WB
