SOURCE: Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,

This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

GE wall oven gas model # JGRS14 won't heat past 100 and I don't see any flames


if you can see the ignitor glowing on either the broiler or the lower area of the oven then the gas valve is bad and not opening anymore,sometimes the ignitors are the culprit as they are in series with the gas valve and if weak wont let the valve open,but both upper and lower burners not operating i would suspect a gas valve first

Hi Ya, I have a GE XL44 the oven and broiler won't go on. Without having a meter to check the amps how safe to assume is it that I need to replace the igniter? Could this also be a fuse? I don't...


If your lucky you may have the same exact ignitor in the bake and broil section. If so you might want to switch them just to see if it works. Hope this is helpful.

Oven not working properly


I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.
