REMOVE THE KNOB BY PULLING OUT ON IT. LOOK IN THE CENTER OF THE SHAFT THAT THE KNOB GOES ON.....IS IT HOLLOW? CAN YOU SEE A SMALL SCREW HEAD IN THE HOLE? IF SO, YOU CAN TURN THIS SCREW CLOCKWISE FOR MORE FLAME AND COUNTERCLOCKWISE FOR LESS FLAME. YOU WILL NEED A VERY SMALL DIAMETER FLATBLADE SCREWDRIVER FOR THIS ADJUSTMENT AND MAKE SURE YOU PUSH BLADE INTO SCREW SLOT FIRMLY AND TWIST FIRMLY TAKING CARE NOT TO STRIP THE HEAD OF THE SCREW. ALWAYS PERFORM ADJUSTMENT WHILE BURNER IS ON WITH FLAME LOW.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    Range burner will not turn off, the knob is tight and stuck


    Not knowing age - very often older (standing pilot) ranges will have burner valves that become hard to operate. These are usually a tapered core valve that can be greased with a high temperature valve grease.

    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.

    GE XL44 Oven - On/Off heating of bottom burner.


    Mag...not sure here. Is there a particular reason that you're suspecting a problem? Does the unit heat much slower than before? Does it bake properly? You may be looking for problems that aren't.

    GE XL44 Gas Stove


    Hi I have a GE X44 gas stove. The 4 top burners work just fine, but the oven no longer turns on. I don't see the blue flame inside the oven. Is it safe to relight the pilot light?????

    GE XL44 Range


    The pilot light is lit to light the main burner. First off, is your pilot light lit or is the igniter lit. There are two thermal sensor in the oven. One is above your pilot light and will not let the pilot light stay lit unless there is a flame. Secondly, you have a thermal sensor in your oven wired all the way to the switch to turn the oven on. If it thinks that it is at temp, then it will never turn on. This sensor may become bad or the case of my oven break. But if these are good, you many have a clogged burning unit underneath. Cleaning according to the owners manual may correct that. Check your owners manual to see what is user serviceable. Gas is nothing to play with.
