Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a GE Spectra XL44 stove. Model # JGBP30BEA5WH. The front right burner will click, throw a spark and light after about 10 seconds. That is the only burner that works. The other 3 will light if I use a match. The strange thing is if I try to light the other 3 using the appropriate knob, the front right burner will click and spark. I cleaned up the burners good and used sand paper to lightly clean off the stop of the ignitor.
There are a few things that can do this... First check the burner top to make sure the holes are not blocked. 2nd, Are the other ignitors sparking? If so then try rotating the slack in the burners left and right - this works sometimes. If not then try placing a screwdriver (you holding the handle only) and touch the burner and lean the screwdriver towards the ignitor... making the spark gap smaller. If you have used the ignition without a burner in place the ignition pack will short out inside it and there will not be a spark until the gap is very small. 3rd, are the ceramic part of the ignitors cracked at the base... take care when washing as they break easy if caught on the cloth. The ignition pack works in pairs so having one work suggests the pair of this one is something in the lead if there is no spark... A huge spillover causing a short or a bad earth... check the burners are firmly in place. There is more but too much detail to post here. Good luck

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak. You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor. If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:
If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.
If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.
First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.
Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.
Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.
Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

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?????

I have the same problem. The burners work but not the oven. Ours started beeping with a FO code. The tech came out and said the control panel is bad and needs to be replaced. He also said ALOT of people are having the same problem and they might do some kind of recall down the road but for know we have to wait til Jan to get our part to fix it. Boo

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
