My GE (jgbp28beawh) gas oven would not turn off. I manunally shut off the gas, unplugged the power, then plugged it back in, turned on the gas, and restarted. Again, the oven continually fires. I assume this is a thermostat or sensor problem- am I right?
I have not been able to find the part number or instructions on how to fix it.
That model number looks to be missing a number (Eg. JGBP28BEA_WH). Did you get it right off the appliance's model and serial number tag?
You can find tips for locating the model number and serial identification tag on your appliances in the 'Repair Parts' section of my web site linked below.
** the oven continually [burns]. I assume this is a thermostat or sensor problem- am I right? **
No sensor problem should cause such an occurrence (if you model even uses one).
If you model uses a thermostat, it could cause it, yes. If your model uses an electronic control for the oven, it being defective could cause it. Also, in either case, a short in the oven's control system wiring might also cause it.
