This is commonly caused by an igniter failure. The following link explains a little igniter theory and how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. They can become weak due to frequency of use and fail to draw the necessary current to open the gas safety valve. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven cavity without ignition. Such a condition could potentially cause an explosion. Each oven manifold has its own igniter. That's why the broiler still works.

The part number for a replacement for your range is 4342528. It sells for about $35 at pcappliancerepair.com.

If you have questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

How do I level the stove once it's installed?


Pull out the bottom drawer if you need to. Stove has four adjustable legs. Raise front or lower back. They screw in and out of the frame of the stove. Just turn them by hand or pliers. Sometimes they can be a pain. You can use a level, but put it on the oven rack because that's where the cake will be.

Bottom oven not working when you turn oven on no gas seems to be going in rest off cooker fine


This problem is commonly attributed to a bad igniter on the bake manifold in the bottom of the oven. As the igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and no longer function properly. Just because they glow, does not mean they are good. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in most ovens each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. If a single igniter is still working (i.e., the broiler still works), its more than likely not a control board issue, either.



NOTE: You cannot light the oven with a match because the manifold uses a safety valve that requires a certain current potential flowing through the igniter to open and allow gas flow. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from entering the oven cavity without ignition. Such a condition could potentially create an explosion hazard.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.
NOTE: It is common for the BAKE igniter to require replacement more often than the broiler, due to the frequency of use.

If you have any questions please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

The bake ignitor has failed.Turn off the gas supply. Remove the racks. Then remove the bottom pan cover in the oven to access the ignitor. Place a amp meter on one wire of the ignitor.Turn the BAKE switch on. If it reads less than 3 amps,replace the ignitor.

GE XL44 stove, broiler work fine. Oven won't light.


If this is a GAS range, the majority of the cases this problem is attributed to a bad igniter on the bake manifold. Each oven manifold (one for bake, one for broil) has its own igniter. They are both fed from the same gas source, though. So, if the broiler works, more than likely you simply need to replace the bake igniter. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

The bake igniter tends to wear out faster, due to the frequency of use.

You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Just use you model number as your search criteria.

This is a simple repair that anyone can do on their without the need of a service call. Just follow the steps provided. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Range Oven Will not light


Check your igniter for the bake manifold. Open the oven door and look down at the bottom oven pan. Set the oven to bake and see if you can notice a glowing or clicking noise coming from under the oven pan. This will tell you if your igniter is attempting to work or not.

Now...just because an igniter glows or clicks does not necessarily mean it is good. They can become weak with age and fail to draw the required current to open the gas safety valve. The bake igniter commonly goes bad first, because of the frequency it gets used. The following link will explain:

If you have questions, or require addtional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Oven produces soot when running, broiler ok, stove top ok


Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.
