Question about GE J2B915SS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
The basic measurement width is the same at 30inches across. The Depth is about 2inches deeper. That means it will stick out about 2 more inches then the old one. Besides that, and the inconvience of not having the overhang on both sides of counter to catch food and juice, what other problems will I run into installing this Range. I also have to take out and disconnect gas shutoff on old one. Do I need a plumber? I am told this is an easy installation that shouldnt take more then 30minutes. Also have a new Dishwasher to install. Any tips? Should I replace all the old stuff in back since its all been there for 12 years. Waterfeedhoses and stuff. I am also told that the new one will not come with a power cord. Any help you can give me on these 2 items would be most helpful. Thanks in advance
HI thanks for your question. the igniter is the cause for this problem. the heat from the glow bar is just not hot enough to ignite the gas. i would replace the igniter. thanks

SOURCE: Low Heat from GE XL44 gas range
you can increase the sides of the flames by opening the orifices, if not differences. make the orifices holes a bit bigger, you can have as big of a flame as you want. those orifices are at the connection of the burner with the valve that supplies gas to the burners.

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

If this is a GAS range, the majority of the cases this problem is attributed to a bad igniter on the bake manifold. Each oven manifold (one for bake, one for broil) has its own igniter. They are both fed from the same gas source, though. So, if the broiler works, more than likely you simply need to replace the bake igniter. The following link explains:
The bake igniter tends to wear out faster, due to the frequency of use.
