Question about Kitchen Ranges
The top right (front) burner does not always light. The insulation is broken around the ignitor so it sparks all over and sometimes lights the gas. Can you tell me how to change it and get a new one. The ignitor tip is shaped like the working end of a hockey stick. Just like the other three. I could not find one that looked like that in the parts catalog or a diagram to see how to get under the burner to replace it..

This Randy again. I checked out the top of the stove as you suggested and found every thing to be ok. Where might the pilot light be located on this ge xl44? this unit is about 13 to14 years old.
Thanks for your help

replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

SOURCE: XL44 oven will not work
The fact that the igniter on the broiler actually begins to glow rules out your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Usually when both oven features fail to work the EOC, or wiring, is the culprit. But...in your situation, the broiler igniter glows, but the bake igniter doesn't. You don't see this happen very often, but I believe you may have two bad igniters. The following link explains how to replace an igniter and gives you some theory behind how they operate:
Although an igniter glows, it still may be bad. This is usually dependent upon the age of the stove and the frequency of use. Usually, the bake igniter burns out first, because it is used more often. These igniters also grow weak with age. Which means, if they do not draw the required current necessary to open the gas safety valve, you will not have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven box before ignition. I would recommend replacing both igniters to see if this corrects your problem. If you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps solve your problem.

I have the same problem. The burners work but not the oven. Ours started beeping with a FO code. The tech came out and said the control panel is bad and needs to be replaced. He also said ALOT of people are having the same problem and they might do some kind of recall down the road but for know we have to wait til Jan to get our part to fix it. Boo
