GE XL44 heating issue

You helped me with some ideas which I implemented. Both ignitors work, so I changed the sensor. I noticed with the deflector pan off the bottom that the flame starts high and after a while drops quite a bit lower even before the temperature is near what is programmed. I.E. temp set to 350 and at 175 flames goes low making the heating process very slow to reach 350. Is there some gas pressure regulator or something like that that might be the issue?

I have not seen a regulator issue on a gas range, other than if one was not converted when Nat to LP gas (or vise versa) was done. At this point a repair person may have to be called to use a manometer to check gas pressures. They will check pressure at the oven burner orifice with at least one top burner on. The range does not have more than one burner setting. It's either on or off. For this issue, you may have the best luck contacting your gas supplier.

Ge xl44 gas range, oven will not come on. everthing else works fine


If you see the ignitor glowing down there that means power is getting to the oven circuit. You have a weak ignitor if that is the case. Sometimes you can bump it and make it work. Check out this video

Gas oven is not working but broiler is working


Hi,
The problem usually is the ignitor. Even if it glows it may not be pulling enough current to open the gas valve. They also are very fragile and break easily.

MY XL44 GAS OVEN IS HEATING UP BUT IT DOES'NT STAY AT THAT TEMPERATURE CONSISTANTLEY. I HAVE TO SHUT THE OVEN OFF AND THEN PUT IT BACK ON PRE-HEAT.i NOTICE THIS THE MOST AT TEMPS BELOW 400 DEGREES. MODEL#...


Your model number is not showing to be valid, please double check it.there are a few differant issues you could be having.
  1. the bake ignitor is going bad and its on the edge of total failure
  2. the sensor may be developing a short in it and the odds of the short occuring increases the higher the temperature
you can look up the parts here http://lartoday.com/order_parts.htm using your model number

GE Gas built in oven Model JRS14 will not heat up


The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

Magic chef oven/stove top range not staying hot


Hi, It very well could be the ignitor. Sometimes they work at first and then will not open the gas valve later in cycle. You can set the oven to heat and watch the ignitor. If it glows and the gas will not ignite in 30 to 45 seconds, the igniter is getting weak. I jope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assit you further.
