The problem is likely a faulty igniter. It's an easy fix, though an expensive part to replace (about $75 from APP). I had the exact problem and found this answer on another site. Just check out your igniter (under the plate on the bottom of your oven.. remove the screws in the back and lift off that plate).. the igniter is a long flat piece that should be glowing red.. if not.. that's your problem. Good luck.

Our new home has a GE XL44 gas stove the top works fine but when I use the oven it smokes and sets off the smoke alarms.The stove is over 3 years old Any ideas before I have to call the repairman in?


A gas stove shouldn't smoke. Is is clean? There is some grease that has eluded your cleaning efforts of interior surface?

Here are some tips that may help you resolve this problem:

Check the broiler flame. If the broiler flame is not adjusted properly, you could be creating soot from the burner flame.

Position the items that your are broiling lower so that they do not splatter grease up onto the broiler baffle.

Use a broiler pan that will drain grease and drippings down below the top surface.

Broiling many items will naturally produce some smoke. If you have the oven door closed when broiling then the only place that the smoke can go is up and out of the oven vent. If you partially open the oven door, some of the smoke will come out of the door opening.

You may have residue on the top walls of the inner oven cavity. Do you have self-clean feature on your range to clean the oven? Follow all of the procedures in your owner's manual to properly clean the oven using the self-clean cycle. This may clear out any undetected residue that could be causing excessive smoke during broiling.

Gas oven dosnt work


the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

Oven does not work


I assume the oven has worked at one point? Does the broil still work?

This is my experience with my White-Westinghouse gas stove:
The igniter bar is toast. There is 1 igniter bar each for the bake and broil (1 on top, 1 below). This is instead of a pilot light. Its an element that heats up to be hot enough to ignite the gas. If it doesn't get hot enough, the gas does not turn on and therefore not heat.

I went to my store and asked about this. "90+% of the time, that's the problem" So I bought a replacement and installed it myself. Problem fixed. Just had to undo a few screws to get at the bar, then connect the new one's wiring under the stove using marettes & some electrical tape, but the rest back together and that was it. I think the part cost me about $60-80 here in Winnipeg a few years ago. But it would've been at least that just for the guy to show up to look at the stove, never mind fixing it.
