GE Profile model # JKP55W0P3WG

Must have used this oven only 4 times and we've lived in this home for 18 years now. tried to use the other day, won't even turn on; there is power to the oven. I suspect the sensor assembly may be bad? Help is greatly appreicatd.

Hello 96targa. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Rather difficult to determine exactly what the problem might be. Might first try unplugging the appliance from the power source. Wait one or two minutes and then plug it back in. Might reset to main circuit board.

Does the oven have a glow igniter glowing when turned on? Appliance may have electrical power but the Hot Surface Igniter (HSI) may be dead and not glowing at all. Which may lead you to think no power is getting to the oven when it really is there.

Does the oven light turn on? If so, power is getting to the oven. Might just be a dead and or defective circuit board. No an inexpressive part. Therefore, best to know for sure before replacing it and not have that resolve the condition or problem.

You might have to remove the HSI and take it to a local appliance parts store in your area and have it tested. If defective, try replacing it as a first attempt to resolve the problem.
