Question about GE Kitchen Ranges
I have a GE gas stove/oven model #JGSC12GEV1BG (best I can tell). The oven pilot is on but the oven will not come on. It worked fine Sunday, but will not light today. The burners on top work fine and the pilot will stay lit, but the "burner" just wont light up and get hot. Any ideas?

SOURCE: stove top pilot light
I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

SOURCE: gas oven dosnt work
the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

There is no pilot. The oven has an electric ignitor to light the flame. This ignitor is very common repair.
You can remove the floor panel inside the oven and start the oven. Watch to see if the ignitor glows. Even if the ignitor glows, it should ignite the flame with in 30 seconds. They get weak and don't pull enough amps to open the gas valve.
I hope this helps you. please let me know if I can assist you further.
