When you turn the thermostat on the pilot light goes to secondary flame. The flame kicks on to the oven safety valve thermocouple. When it gets hot enough it generates millivolts and opens the safety valve. Here's how to check it; Make sure the flame kicks down and covers the bulb of the thermocouple. You can use a lighter if you're not sure. If no gas comes out It might be the valve that's bad. Now, some of the older models used a flame switch. It looks like a dryer thermostat with two wires on it and the thermocouple coming out of the middle. To check it, short the two wires together or use a ohm meter to see if it's closed.

Hi my stove is gas and the burners work on the surface but the inside of my oven does not hea

check to see if thermal coupling is on the polite. if electric lite see if it is sparking. (thermal coupling is small round tube at back of burner copper), if electric burner inspect element for white or black spots. if found clean, if hole in it replace. most electric stoves have two elements one on top and one on bottom. inspect all electric plugs , may have bad connection in plug hole. If it has lite element, see if it glows if not replace.

the conversion requires the changing of jet sizes for all the units and an adjustment of the air shrouds near the jets

I have a GE XL44 gas stove the oven will not stay lite why?

That's bad. Sounds like the burner is dirty.
and the gas belive it or not is blowing the polit out it hit it so fast. The gas can't go in the burner. There should be two screws that hold it in place take it off and clean. See if that will work. Let me know.

GE XL44 gas range, oven dial doesn't have "lite"?

Set the oven for the desired temperature. It will cycle on and off at that temperature.
It will lite automatically.

Oven will not lite

Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.

Oven will not lite

Replace the oven ignitor. IT probably still gets red but it has to draw enough current to open the gas valve and yours isnt. Replace the ignitor and it should fix you up.
