GE XL44 Gas Range; OVEN not working

My GE XL44 Gas Range Oven does not work but the stove top does (I think its only 4-5 years old).

Can someone tell me why this happened? Please email me at r.mchale@comcast.net.
Should a service call be placed or is this an easy fix that I could take care of? I have a GE XL44. It is almost 10 years old. The burners are OK, but the oven does not work. I turn the knob to the highest setting and/or to broil, but threre is not even a sound that gas is coming out.

    The burners and the clock work. How do I check if the problem is with a fuse (power)?

You need to have the ovens thermostat replaced! this is why it will not work! the stovetop does not use a thermostat and that is why it still works!
Replace thermostat!
Happy New Year!

Are you able to see if the pilot light is on for the oven ?... i would presume there would be a seperate one for the oven as well as the stove top.

My GE XL44 Gas Range (Model JGBP34 GEP 1A) control


If you like the stove and it in good shape otherwise, have it fixed. The parts are still available. The stove in good used condition (without leak) is probably worth $75.00. May cost that much to repair it. Will cost approximately $450.00 to replace it with equal range. If it's a standing pilot model (no electricity needed) they are unavailable and your new range will require power to use the oven. Hope this helps.

GE XL44 oven does not heat


12 years old? If it is a gas rnge yo need to get a gas technician out to fix it. I would probably say it s time for a new one. Hers is a couple of things to think of when getting a new stove. 1) Everyone wants a self clean. But 90% never self clean. can save up to $200 w/o that option. 2) 80% off people buy a stovebased on looks. A stove may not be pretty but work just as good as one that is.

GE Profile Spectra XL44 oven wouldn't light, stove top and broiler works


We have our second GE stove and it has started to do the same as the rest of you.  Our first stove began to suffer igniter issues after 4 or 5 years.  I called GE and was given a simple test procedure for the igniter using a multimeter that I don't remember and likely wouldn't post regardless lest someone do things incorrectly... In any event, as I understand, the gas flow is tied to the igniter temp.  As the igniter ages, the temp that it can achieve gets lower. Eventually, it hits a point where the temperature isn't sufficient to reliably ignite the gas and our problems start.  The solution is fairly simple.  Replace the igniter. So, call a repair person and tell them the problem.  They can come out and instal the new igniter.  Unless you are a licensed or certified repair person, DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.  Let the pros handle repair to gas appliances.
