Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range
XL44 Profile. Oven will not ignite. Top burners are good. Temprature indicator reads 100 degrees, doesn't change. No gas smell present in oven.
The oven doesn't heat, but the broiler works.
I think the problem is the igniter has failed.
That is a very good possibility. The oven ignitor is the most likely component to fail in such an oven ignition system. And yes, it is possible for an oven ignitor to glow and still be defective. You can read about how the different types of gas oven ignition systems work and some of the problems that experience at the following link:

The oven that you have has the electronic ignition system (please correct me if I am wrong), where most likely is the cause if the problem.
The way this works is power flows from the thermostat or electronic control through the ignitor and heats it. They are all in series. It then allows a specific amount of current to flow to the oven valve. Once a certain amount of current is reached, it opens the valve and allow gas to flow to the oven burner where it is ignited by the hot ignitor.
This could be a faulty thermostat if there is no current from the thermostat going out to the system and the valve. You may want to open the bottom of the oven (inside the oven) and see if the ignitor glows (which may cause th temp to rise to 100 degrees. If it is glowing, the issue could be in the valve.
