SOURCE: Replacing oven thermostat GE XL 44 (WGBS23WEA6WW)

i cannot look up the part diag. for the model you provided( no model exests), but for the most part, its a mater of unscrewing the burner heads fromthe maintop to allow yo to lift teh top further back, by lifting without uinscrewing them, you runn the chance of kinking/ loosing the gas fittings leading to them. In which case yooull wind up unscrewing htem anyway to repair the leak. As far as the capillary tube, it shoud push right through te opening in cavity where old one comes out

SOURCE: Whirlpool 465. The top range burners will not

The bake is seperate from the burner ignition system. You may need a new spark module for the top burners. All burners should spark at the same time even if you are only trying to lite one burner.

Electric ge hotpoint 317b6641p001

The burner is just a plug in unit. Take off the plate on the top and lift up on the opposite side for the burner from where it is plugged in. Give it a pull and it will come out just fine and plug the new one in.

The gas is connected on the rear side of the stove but the pilot light is not lit, nor will it light. trying to trouble shoot the problem before deciding to purchase a new oven/range. Also, I remember...

You may have a pilotless ignition.Check around door frames for model #plate.
Also , open broiler door ,turn on oven and look inside . If you see an orange glow appear after awhile, that is the electronic igniter and you have an electronic ignition(no pilot).In this case the top burners use a spark ignition system.If you don,t hear clicking when you turn on a burner your ignition module might be bad.
Easily fixed though.

The broiler and the burners all light but the oven doesn't.

your oven igniter is no good. remove racks from oven, unscrew the 2 screws in the back of he bottom panel. remove panel. there will be a metal plate on top of the flame spreader. remove the wing nut holding the plate and remove plate. you should now see the igniter. now try turning the oven on. after a few seconds you should see the igniter glowing. if it gets to a real bright then it is good. if it doesnt it is bad. unplug the stove.changing it is fairly simple. just remove the 2 screws holding it in place, gently pull on the wire to see if there is a connector, if not then you can always cut and join the wires to install the new igniter. igniter should run you less that $20 bucks. its pretty simple to change. after changing the igniter and before reassembling your oven, just plug it back in and turn the oven on. oven should lite. do not put hands or ace inside the oven while attemping to lite.

Whirlpool imperial series 465 electric range - light indicating a burner is on won't go off though all burners and oven are off

There is a fault on your plate sensor (the rod crossing through the center of the plate). You should be able to get a replacement if not you can replace the plate, but my advice is just ignore it. Its only there to make you aware that the surface is still hot during and after use.

I just moved into an apartment that has an older Caloric Prestige oven and range and cannot find the Pilot light--Please help

Hi, The caloric ranges use diferent types of pilot igniters, to avoid any further delays, I suggest geting the model number off the stove usually located under the stove's top, you don't need any tools just lift the range top(like when you are going to clean it) the model number is located usually on a metal plate in between the burners, or if it's not there , it will be inside the oven around the door liner or the oven liner. When you do locate the model, just go to the repair website and type in the model number, follow instruction after that. see the following figure it might help in locating the model number: small_13_4.jpg

Stove top ignitors do not ignite but oven does.

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.

My Maytag oven (mgs5870adw) isn't getting as hot as it should.The boiler works and all of the burners work. I haven't confirmed my problem other than noticing that things don't cook evenly and/or take way...

mlong9876 - I am having the same problem as you posted re: Maytag (mgs5870adw). I am trying to arrive at the same resolution changing the lower igniter in my same model oven. Were you able to remove the lower oven plate to access the top of the burner and igniter with the convection bake fan housing in the back? I am having difficulty getting to the igniter.

Front right burner on GE glass top range not working

If you have the glass cooktop slide-in model, the problem is most likely the burner "ribbon' under the glass top for the small burner has come loose. I fixed mine with only a phillips-head screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, and a 1/4" wrench (1/4" socket on the end of a nutdriver works better). Here are the steps I took to fix it: 1) Slide the oven out from the counter so the sides of the oven are clear of the counter top. 2) Remove the phillips head screws-1 on each side of the oven near the top/rear. These will be the only phillips-head screws you will need to remove. 3) Open the oven door and remove the 4 hex-head screws at the top/front/inside the oven- there are 2 on each side which follow the opening of the door. Then close the door. 4) Pull off the burner knobs by gripping them and pulling straight up. Don't worry, you will not break them but you will need to give them a good tug. 5) Remove the burner retaining nuts that are under the knobs-you may need a wrench to loosen them but only tighten them by hand when reinstalling. 6) Pull the face of the control panel away from the oven slowly until you see a ribbon connector on the right side and then disconnect the ribbon and remove the face plate from the oven. 7) Remove the 4 hex-head screws from the face plate bracket (the plastic part that was holding the face plate) and pull the bracket toward the front of the oven until it flops over and rests on the oven door handle. 8) remove the 2 black screws holding down the glass top-one on each side of the oven-the screw heads face the front of the oven. 9) Disconnect the two wiring harnesses attached to the cook top. Don't worry, they only fit one way so you don't need to label them. 10) Lift the cook top until the wiring harnesses are clear of the holes and place it upside down on a flat surrface. 11) Remove the two retaining bracket screws and brackets from each side of the non-working burner. 12) Slowly lift the burner and flip it upwards until you see the ribbon coils. It should not be necessary to disconnect any wires. 13) Look at the ribbon coils very carefully to see if any of them are disconnected from their main connection points. If so, feed the ribbon back inside the pinch point (you may need a small screwdriver to open the pinch point first) and then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pinch the ribbon to hold it in place. I had to use a voltage meter set in the OHM position to find where mine were disconnected. Once you pinch the ribbon end back into place, put everything back together in reverse order. If your burner still does not work, your burner knob switch may be bad. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
