I have read other post in reference to this problem where the oven will not lite and glow bar will not lite, but the burners and broiler and the self cleaning does. My question is how do I get to the ignigtor where the glo-bar is located. It looks like its in the far right rear corner at the bottom. Does the bottom cover lift up or do you get to it from the back. Also do you take the whole ignightor assembly out. Is there a drawing on the net somewhere I can look at this set up.

thank you,

I was able to get the cover off at the bottom of the inside oven. There are two small screws holding the ignightor casing in place. How do i get to the screws, or does the ignightor just slide out of the metal casing? Please respond.

thank you,

** GE self cleaning [range] M # JGB90MEB2BC **

I'm afraid I can find no listing for such a model number. Can you double check it? Most GE range model numbers will either start with 3-letters followed by 3-numbers or 4-letters then 2-numbers.

** how do I get to the ignigtor where the glo-bar is located. **

The ignitor IS the glow bar.

** Does the bottom cover lift up or do you get to it from the back. **

Usually the oven bottom panel is removed as illustrated at the following link although on some models the bake ignitor is accessed from below in the broiler drawer area. It will NOT be accessed from the rear.

Here is the correct model number

M# - JGBP90MEB2BC

S# - ZZ273377P

Again, I was able to get the bottom off and see the ignightor. How do I get the two screws off that hold the cage for the glo-bar. The cage is attached to the burner assembly. Does the glo-bar just pull out of the metal assembly or do the screws come out. If the screws come out there is no way to get to them without taking the burner off, and i am not sure if that should be disturbed. Of course the manual doesn't tell you anything on how to take the glo-bar off.

thank you,

** Does the glo-bar just pull out of the metal [protection cage] **

An oven ignitor can be removed from the shield but shouldn't be as the ignitor filament is VERY brittle and can easily be broken. The cage protects it.

Screws hold the ignitor to the burner and yes the burner may need to be removed to gain sufficient access to unscrew them depending on the way the oven was assembled.

** Of course the manual doesn't tell you anything on how to take the glo-bar off **

No because it is a user's manual not a service or repair manual.

Why are you taking the ignitor off at this point anyway? Have you confirmed it has failed and are already replacing it?
