GE 44xl gas stove (no electrical plug)

How do I light the pilot light on this stove? There is no electrical plug (I guess it's an oldie.

Is it just taking time to get the gas to flow through?

    fixed....I turned on the burner with the match at the pilot section and it drew the gas up to light. (just the other pilot would not light, but the burner did turn on--the gas is turned off until I fix that).

    If anyone knows how to clean it, please advise. Thank you.

I smell gas and my burners wont light - is there a pilot light in these ranges?


The best way to find out if if your stove has a pilot light, is to lift the top panel of the range . The pilot will usually be located between the burners. Typically you will have two pilots. One for the left and one for the right. The pilot light will ignite with a match without having to turn the burner knobs to the "on" position. Good luck

How do I turn off the pilots on a Hotpoint RGA720?


The mfg does not want you to turn off the pilots, because of the potential for a gas leak and an explosion, so not designed to do that. You would have to probably disconnect the tubing to the pilot light, and cap it off, but I can't recommend circumventing the design on something like this.

If you do, after turning gas back on, make sure you check closely for leaks.

(This is why new styles of stoves eliminate the pilot light and use igniters)

Burners wont ignite


is this an electric start stove (is there a "light" choice on the knob)? If so, does it click? If it does have "light" and doesn't click, make sure it is plugged it and getting electricity. If not, then it is a "standing pilot" stove and the pilots are out. Let me know and/or good luck!

I cant find the stove top pilot


Electric Ignition (sparking clicking noise when control knob is turned to "light" setting) do not have pilots. The spark ignites the gas.

For the GE XL44 model, where would i find the pilot light? the stove is not working


There is not pilot light on the stove top since the burner is activated by a spark generate by high voltage to a small ceramic disk with a wire protruding from it by the burner.
You have the have AC Power to the stove and you should hear a clicking when you slightly turn on the burner. Once the burner is on fire then turn the burner control to the desired temperature. If the burner will not light after 4 seconds of clicking sounds turn the burner control off and make sure the round gas diffuser on top of the burner is correctly seated on the burner. It should lock in place and is removable for daily cleaning of the stove. Now try the burner control again in the light position for no more than four seconds to see if it lights.
Do you smell gas? Do you hear clicking when slightly turning the burner knob? If yes to both the stove is working and the top of the burner is not seated correctly. If no on either or both you may have a stove, electrical or gas problem.

Where do i find the pilot light on my ge profile gas stove


Are you sure it has one? A lot of the newer model gas ranges are "pilotless ignition." I had one that did and it had to be plugged into an electrical outlet and the outlet for some reason quit working, so the igniter wouldn't work either...

Gas stove works, but oven does not


A gas oven will have some built in safety devices. Assuming that you have an electric pilot light sparking device, anything in the pilot light circuit could cause your problem

The oven does not "want" to turn the gas on unless there is an operating pilot system.

Since you never smell gas, but gas is available, then something in the pilot light circuit sounds like the culprit.

It could be as simple as carbon build up on the igniter or an internal fusing mechanism.

If you can get into the oven to the igniter, you could try cleaning the unit with a plastic scrunge.

I'm going to guess that this is not going to respond well to 'home grown' measures and that it will require replacement of parts.

Perhaps it is time to bite the bullet and call in repair......

good luck

Stove top pilot light


I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

LP or natural? Are the valves set correctly for such and the regulator value changed if a different gas is used than what the manufacturer set the stove up as?
Good Luck...
