The model # is GE JGBP79WEA3WW.

I have seen other GE ranges on here with the same problem. The usual response is that the model number is needed.

When I try to start the oven, nothing happens. There is no gas being dispensed to the oven as well.

I can't find the fuses to check them. Where are they located?

Thank you for your time and help.

Yes, the complete model number *off the appliance's model and serial number identification tag* (not the owner's manual or elsewhere) is needed to properly identify a major home appliance.

** When I try to start the oven, nothing happens. **

Nothing AT ALL? Not even the oven ignitor glowing??

Your range's oven uses a 'hot surface' ignition system. You can read about how they work and what observations will be needed to start to diagnose such systems at the following link.

- Understanding Gas Oven Ignition Systems


If the oven ignitor IS glowing, a 'weak' oven ignitor (see the following link) is the most common cause of problems in such a gas oven ignition system. Unfortunately, unless you have an ammmeter or amp probe, you will not be able to properly test for such failure and may just have to use trial and error.

- G.E. JGBP79WEA3WW Oven Igniter


If the ignitor is NOT glowing AT ALL, any of the parts of the ignition system (igniter, gas valve, the control and the wiring between them) could be at fault. Further testing would be required to determine which.

** I can't find the fuses to check them. Where are they located? **

I'm not surprised. There are not usually any fuses in most gas ranges.
