Question about Kitchen Ranges
Both the broiler and oven igniters have been replaced at the same time about 6 weeks ago. Both the igniters for the oven and the broiler light and ignite the gas . At some point(it changes each time)the oven or broiler will just turn off. With the broiler the control screen indicates it is on. With the oven the screen reverts back to just the clock display. I can restart the broiler but it continues to shut off and each time it is restarted the time until it shuts off gets shorter. The oven has just started shutting itself off and so far I have been able to have it stay lit and maintain temps.

Often times, just leaving the range unplugged for a time will solve the problem, which is most often caused by water or a cleaning agent getting into an igniter switch behind a burner knob. After the switch drys out it usually starts working again. In the mean time, you can still use the burners by lighting them manually with one of those long lighters, but you will not be able to use the oven or broiler without electricity. If the range continues to spark after being left unplugged for more than a day or two, you will have to determine which switch behind the burner knobs is causing the problem. Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.

Hi I have a older GE that the oven won't light. It is a gas range that is electric ignited. The top burners do work but the oven will not light. Is it pricey to have this fixed?

If it is a ge it would have a glow bar ignitor, either a flat rectangle shaped or a round ignitor. That is want the problem is 95% of the time. It is pretty easy to do. The floor of the stove will come right out and it probably has two screws in the back corners you can see. Remove them and the floor will lift out and you can see the burner and the ignitor.
