Tim Alan :

hi my name isXXXXX can help you with this issue.

Tim Alan :

is your bake and broil feature not working

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Correct, nothing happens when you try to use those features.

Tim Alan :

could you supply me with the model number please

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

possibly 8114P927-60

Tim Alan :

no that's not it you did say it was a gas range correct

Tim Alan :

do you have a volt ohm meter

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Yes. I don't see a model number anywhere inside the door. It's a gas range about 3 years old.

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

I do not have a meter.

Tim Alan :

more often than not a no heat in the oven are bad igniters lets check that first

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Okay

Tim Alan :

remove the oven racks and the oven bottom cover

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

The cover inside the oven?

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Or the panel below the door?

Tim Alan :

yes the bottom panel inside the oven

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Okay, got it.

Tim Alan :

that model number may be down below behind the lower cover were the blower is

Tim Alan :

do you see the igniter

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Model number was behind the panel under the door - JGS990BDS

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Will look for igniter

Tim Alan :

ok thanks

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

Not sure what I am looking for, might be in over my head here. Looks just like top of the oven, v-shape panel. Could the igniter be in the tube in the center?

Tim Alan :

no its near the rear of the burner has 2 wires going to it

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

okay, I see a rectangle piece at the back w/2 wires

Tim Alan :

thats it now turn the oven to bake and see if it glows

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

somewhat under that panel

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

hold on

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

no, nothing happens.

Tim Alan :

ok

Tim Alan :

ok is the display working

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

display panel works, shows that it is preheating when I try the bake feature

Tim Alan :

ok is the display working

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

yes

Tim Alan :

ok turn it to broil on hi see what happens the broiler is on top

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

same thing, nothing happens

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

both quit working at the same time

Tim Alan :

ok if both are not working the problem is either the electronic control or the gas valve I had you check both of the igniters to rule those out

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

would it be the gas valve if the burners work fine? is there one for each?

Tim Alan :

sometimes there just weak and they will glow but not open the gas valve if you had a meter we could check some other components but without a meter this is as far as we can go yes there is another valve that controls bake and broil seperate from the cooktop

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

gotcha. how expensive of a repair am I looking at do you think?

Tim Alan :

the power for the igniters goes through the oven control to the igniters and the circuit is completed through the gas valve

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

I see.

Tim Alan :

give me one more minute there may be a limit also

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

okay

Tim Alan :

there is a high limit but if that was bad the control wouldn't function and have no power

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

so you think the valve may be okay?

Tim Alan :

so it should be the valve or the control just remember to hit the accept button and leave a comment thank you

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

so, no idea what $$ range the repair could run?

Tim Alan :

it's either the valve or control simple test would be a voltage test at the igniters

Tim Alan :

150 in parts 150 in labor

JACUSTOMER-hf5ivqk4- :

that helps - thanks a bunch

Tim Alan :

your welcome have a good day
