Question about Kitchen Ranges
I purchased this range in August. From day one, the oven will not light. The glow bar glows, but oven will not light. I have been in touch with Sunbeam several times but cannot get any satisfaction. The warranty people sent out a television technician to look at my stove. Wasn't that stupid?
More often than not the glow bar is resticting the voltage to open the valve or the valve itself is stuck

Tips for a great answer:
The oven burner is lighted by electric ignition. To light the burner, press the pad for the desired electrical function and press the INCREASE or DECREASE pad until the desired temperature is displayed. The burner should ignite within 60 seconds. After the oven reaches the selected temperature, the oven burner cycles off completely, then on with a full flame to keep the oven temperature controlled.

Both the new and OLD units use a glow bar for lighting the burner. Most likely your Glow Bar has failed: GE PN: WB2X9154
