The specifications on this page state that this oven has a timer and timed bake, it does not. It does not appear to have a temperature preheat notification, either. It doesn’t even have the most basic clock. Why does GE even make this in 2021? I could understand if it was significantly lower cost than models with these features, but it isn’t. Best Buy - at least update the specifications section to accurately reflect this model.
I love my new gas range. Only thing I have an issue with is the burners and caps. My range was installed on July 4th, and one burner is already messed up and 2 of the burner caps paint is coming off. I do not know what happened, but it does not look so good. I went to wash them and they looked horrible. Those are made cheap to me. Range however is beautiful and works great.
I fell in love with this gas range as soon as I received it. Invited my sister over to cook oven favorites and she was charmed. Simply, my whole family loves it. Why? It lights up quick with plenty of room to heat, bake, and broil. Easy to clean up.
This stove was just what we needed as a replacement stove. It was perfect for our rental home. It is dependable and does exactly what we need it to do. The delivery guys were great. They moved our old stove and installed the new one in about 10 minutes. They were professional, timely, and fast especially considering that they delivered in the midst of Covid-19
this particular product purchase is a replacement of the same range we had recently purchased. The first range came with a dent on the left side (facing the range). This replacement also has a dent on the left side (facing the range)!! The people who delivered the range pointed out the dent when they removed the range from its packaging. When I asked them for copy of the delivery statement/receipt I was told a copy would be emailed to me. I have yet to receive that form.
We decided to keep the range, but would like some form of compensation for a damaged product! Especially, given that this is a replacement of an identical range which had the same damage!
I would recommend this to a friend

Purchased the item for a rental property we have in Southern California. Interacted with an associate via internet. The associate was fantastic- great customer service- and the product was delivered in a timely manner. Our tenants are very happy with the new gas range.
I will continue to purchase appliances from Best Buy for our rental properties as needed in the future
Perfect gas range for all your cooking needs - perfect size that fits in any kitchen with a oven window and light so that you can check on your roasting without opening up the oven and losing precious heat.
A:AnswerHi - Thanks for viewing our GE Gas Ranges! Model JGBS30DEKWW has an electronic ignition system. The automatic pilotless ignition (also called automatic electric or automatic electronic ignition) saves energy by eliminating the task of lighting the burners. It also saves money by using 30% less gas than a standing pilot range. Because this system has no standing pilot light, no gas is being used unless it is needed. With the spark ignitor system, electricity simply sparks when control is turned to the LITE position. Gas is simultaneously released and ignites when it comes in contact with the spark. Should there be a power failure, the oven will not function but the burners may be lit with a match. Simply hold the match near the burner, turn the control to LITE. Exercise extreme caution when lighting the burners in this manner. The cooktop surface is cool to the touch when not in use because there is no pilot light burning continuously. The glow bar in the oven will cycle on and off with the oven temperature. We do not offer a model with a standing pilot. Also, check out our Hotpoint range model RGB518PCHWH with Cordless Ignition. A 9 volt battery supplies the power to the electronic igniters. Depending on the use of the range the battery is estimated to last 3 years. Cordless gas ranges may also be referred to as battery-operated ignition gas ranges. Thanks for checking with us! SUE@GEA
A:AnswerWe appreciate you considering GE Appliances. I am happy to help. This model comes from the factory set for natural gas. A conversion kit is included to convert to LP. GE Appliances recommends a qualified installer or servicer convert the gas range, oven, or cooktop to the proper gas supply needed. The conversion must be in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction.
The conversion instructions are located in the wiring diagram (mini-manual) or included with the LP kit attached to the appliance near the pressure regulator. I hope this helps. Thank you for checking with us. Lisa from GE Appliances.
A:AnswerHi JuliusL - The range has an electronic ignition, therefore, requires 120V/15A. The automatic pilotless ignition eliminates the need to light the burners. It also saves money by using less gas than a standing pilot range. Because this system has no standing pilot light, no gas is being used unless it is needed. With the spark igniter system, electricity simply sparks when the control is turned to the LITE position. Gas is simultaneously released and ignites when it comes in contact with the spark. Should there be a power failure, the oven will not function but the burners may be lit with a match. Simply hold the match near the burner, turn the control to LITE. Exercise extreme caution when lighting the burners in this manner. The glo-bar in the oven will cycle on and off with the oven temperature. When it cycles on to heat, the gas valve opens and the gas is ignited. When the oven is at temperature, the gas valve closes there are no longer flames. You only uses gas and see flames in the oven when the oven is actively heating. Thanks for your interest! Sue
A:AnswerHi - Model JGBS30DEKWW is not equipped with a clock/timer. Models with no clock or timer do not have automatic shutdown. Most ovens and ranges with touch pad clock controls will automatically shut off after 12 hours. The benefit of this is the peace-of-mind and energy savings if the oven is accidentally left on. GE® 30" Free-Standing Gas Range
JGBS60DEKWW has an electronic clock and timer with auto 12 hour shut-off.
Thanks for viewing GE. Keep in touch at GEAppliances.com. Sue

A:AnswerHi Peter - Yes, all of our gas cooking appliances come ready to be connected to natural gas; however, they also come with an LP Conversion Kit to connect to LP (Liquid Propane). We recommend a qualified installer or servicer convert the gas range to the proper gas supply needed. The conversion must be in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and all codes and requirements of the authority having jurisdiction. The conversion instructions are located in the wiring diagram (mini-manual) or included with the LP kit attached to the appliance near the pressure regulator. Thanks for choosing GE! Sue
