I have a GE XL44 oven. The baking part of the oven does not work the ignitor does not light up. All the burners on top are working including the broiller part of the oven. I think it is the ignitor but I'm not sure.
Can you please tell me how to be a 100% sure that the ignitor is the problem. Thank you.

Re: The baking part of the oven does not work
Joseph, you should hear a sparking when the ignitor is functioning. Very often, the ignitor for all burners is the same unit. You can try to light the burner when you first turn on the unit. If it lights, then find out what is going on. It is possible that the gap is damaged or dirty.

Unplug the range. Remove the oven racks. remove the oven base pan. remove the flame spreader pan. remove the glow bar ignitor on the left hand side of the gas burner and replace it with a good ignitor.
Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)
oven never lights , but shows its on,? never heats past 100 deg?? soundslike a bad bake ignitor to me take down the model number and order a bake ignitor, installs on the bake burner, under the floor of oven, with just a few screws and 2 wires.
I have XL44 oven JGBP26. I replaced the glow ignitore on the oven but still will not glow. I carfully tested the current to the ignitore and showed 125 volts, I also tested the resistance on the control valve lead and to ignitore and showed 1100.
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.
Sister, there is no pilot light on this model. Sounds like you have a bad ignitor, however the F7 code shows as a bad touch pad membrane. d7 must represent how many times this fault occured, although Im not finding anything that shows a d7 code. Try resetting the board by killing power to the range for about a minute. After turning the power back on press the COOKING TIME, DELAY START AND NUMBER 8 PADS ALL TOGETHER. The words test should be displayed. Now you are going to energize the bake circuit; press the bake and start, you should hear a click, this is the bake relay on the board. By holding the start button in you are energizing the ignitor (glow bar) in the oven. If you do not hear the click, suspect the control board. If you do hear the click and the ignitor is not glowing, you have a bad ignitor. Have someone with you to verify the ignitor is glowing when you are holding the start button in. To exit the test, just push CLEAR/OFF key pad. Catriver...post back
