Question about GE Ovens
Using key pad I can select either bake or broil, and can set the temperature or Hi/low for broil. But when bake or broil button is pushed again to set the mode of operation ( start the operation) little happens. The indicator light for bake or broil does not stop blinking. After approx 1.5 second a faint click is heard behind the control pad. For the oven there is no glowing of the ignitor (?), no gas smell, and no flame/heat.
In the broil mode, the ignitor lights (glows) and low level flames appear
along the lentgth of the broiler element, but full broil status is never achieved. This is for GE XL44, Model # : JGBP35GEP4WG.

Rosanne, he problem with your oven is the igniter. The igniter is wired in
series with a safety valve. The safety valve monitors the amount of
electrical current flowing through the igniter when you ask it to
"bake". When the igniter gets "weak" it won't allow current to flow
through it properly, this will keep the oven from heating.
Before you begin the repair, you should have the new part on hand. The part number is WB2X9154 and can be purchased at your local appliance parts retailer for about $50.00. Here's one online for $65.00.
First, UNPLUG YOUR OVEN OR TURN IT OFF AT THE BREAKER!
To replace it... Remove the racks and look up at the broiler manifold. You'll see the igniter mounted at the rear (the round thing with 2 wires going to it). You'll need a 1/4" socket or nut driver to remove it.
(*TIP---> before removing the screws from the igniter, put a few drops of liquid dish soap on the threads to lubricate them. If you do this, you will not strip the threads of the screws and it will ease their removal.)
The new igniter kit will have two ceramic wire nuts in it. Cut the two wires off of the old igniter and strip them back about 3/8". Then connect the wires of your new one to the wires in the oven using the ceramic wire nuts provided. Then mount the new igniter, tuck any loose wires as far back into the oven as possible and replace the racks.
(*TIP---> The new igniter is very fragile! [that's why it came wrapped tightly in bubble wrap] Handle it gently!)
There ya go! Total job time? ~45 minutes.

SOURCE: F2 error code
Similar problem. When baking over 400 degrees we get the F2 code that can only be reset by cycling the power at the breaker. Replaced the electonics to no avail. I'm thinking its the cooling fan located between the oven and microwave (upper unit) it never comes on which may cause a separate temp switch to generate the F2... but I'm not a pro. :)

go to www.repairclinic.com enter model number and look for the igniter it seems to me you need to change this part. Note it is very fragile.
