Didn't get a minute to do it,btw that was replaced with a new igniter so I would need to do a quick swap out and put in this old one. Requires me to take apart the inside a bit, didn't have the strength to do that last night, will try soon. And plan on buying a prong to attach to my romex wire and see if I can use the probes to test as well.
 Will keep you updated with my results.

Can you just put the probe into one side of the connector? The other probe you can wrap the romex around.
Now if plan on doing this again get an alligator clip to put on the romex.
ETA: Any old appliance plug/cord is great for this.

Just curios which amp setting would you use?



  The 600A~ shows 3.18

While the 4A~
                 40A~. Shows a reading of 2.7-2.8

They should both read the same but I would use the lowest possible scale.
ETA: You are set to AC, correct?

I took a short video, check your messages.
  I played with both settings.
Put the clamp on in middle of the oven preheating.
  You don't have to watch the whole video as all I do is go back and forth, just the first few seconds.

Video didn't come out great.
 But tried it with a 3 Piece prong and some Romex, readings coming out the same, meaning one higher than the other, with the 600apm and then the lower setting.

   And using the tester in-between I couldn't get it to work. Didn't put something correct.

   Will draw it on a paper to show you what I did.. maybe I need to swap it around?

I'm going to be making an extension for a telephone landline.  In an apartment in a sturdy old apartment building.  I'll need to string a wire from the original outlet to the new location.
How do I attach the wire to the wall/ceiling?  The walls are too dense to knock in a nail, so I assume staples from a staple gun won't penetrate enough to hold.
I was thinking of running tape along the whole wire to keep it tucked into the curve between the ceiling and wall.
What type of tape should I use?
What other options do I  have?

Question about GE oven re Shabbos mode:

I have a GE model JGBP30WEA1WW gas oven. The manual for the oven says that some models come with Shabbos mode. However, it seems mine does not (I cycle through the options using the keypad combinations they give and it only goes through "on" and "off", which I think are for turning the automatic shutoff on and off, but no "sab" which would indicate Sabbath mode).

I would like to replace the control board with one that has Shabbos mode. Is this even possible? Also, I can't seem to find anywhere a way to tell which specific models of either the oven or the control board have Shabbos mode (only that some similar models have it, but no model numbers like the one I gave above). Is it something that GE started putting in their ovens at some point and mine is just old? If that's the case, I guess any later model control board will work, right? If not, which model control board do I need? The model I found is WB27K10143, and here's an example of a used one I found on eBay:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/GE-Range-Oven-Control-Board-WB27K10143/264724894091?hash=item3da2d5518b:g:dbgAAOSw3tNetZrN

Anyone have experience doing this? Thanks in advance.


EDIT: I should say that the original model # for the control panel is WB11K10013, but the one I gave up above replaces that one (so I guess it's the updated version)

Call GE.  Their phone people should know enough to give you the information you need.

Thanks. Hadn't really considered that because it's such an old model and I guess I don't feel optimistic about customer service in geenral. But worth a try I suppose.

If you want to borrow my display to test it out you're more than welcome! 😉

Genuinely appreciate it, but I'm assuming that if a board has a model number and it has Shabbos mode, if you tell me the model number of the board, that would answer my question, no? If it doesn't have a model number, then even if I test it out, it wouldn't answer my question since I wouldn't know which model to order. Thank you in any case.

This is with the assumption that you have the right connectors for a different motherboard.

 Here's a picture of my oven with the shabbos feature.

 And here's the exact item you need.

There's a few pictures of the control board which you should compare to own own board to see if it matches up.

All the parts for my model.

If there's anything else I can be of assistance, feel free to ask away. I hope I was of help.
