GE Profile Spectra XL44 oven wouldn't light, stove top and broiler works

Oven worked in the morning and all of a sudden the oven doesn't work 7 hours later. I haven't had any spills or did any cleaning or anything different. I have prepared this meal to put in the oven and now the oven is not working. Do you have any advise?

    Oven worken fine on Sunday. On Monday the digital temp reads 100 degrees and no more. It doesn't feel like oven is even at 100 degrees. Broiler doesn't work, either.

    Same thing. Stove top works, broiler/oven gas supply does stops periodically, then sometimes works at a later date. Replaced the thermal sensor a couple of years ago.

  • gillock Jun 14, 2008

    Same problem...the oven started taking longer and longer to start (with the occasional scary "whoomph" sound...now it won't start at all. Top burners work fine.

    I have the GE Spectra XL44 as well. My stove top works, the oven works a little but the broiler doesn't work. The last time I turned on the broiler, I heard a pop and then it just didn't work. No smell of gas. Suppose it is time to call a repairman. Bummer!!

    My oven will not light but the broiler and stove top work. It is very disappointing since the stove is not very old.

  • Broken007 Dec 15, 2008

    GEXL44: Top burners work, broiler lights; but no oven heat. Igniter doesn't glow. Didn't see any fuses to check.

We have our second GE stove and it has started to do the same as the rest of you.  Our first stove began to suffer igniter issues after 4 or 5 years.  I called GE and was given a simple test procedure for the igniter using a multimeter that I don't remember and likely wouldn't post regardless lest someone do things incorrectly... In any event, as I understand, the gas flow is tied to the igniter temp.  As the igniter ages, the temp that it can achieve gets lower. Eventually, it hits a point where the temperature isn't sufficient to reliably ignite the gas and our problems start.  The solution is fairly simple.  Replace the igniter. So, call a repair person and tell them the problem.  They can come out and instal the new igniter.  Unless you are a licensed or certified repair person, DO NOT DO THIS YOURSELF.  Let the pros handle repair to gas appliances.

My GE Sprctra XL44 oven does not work, but the broiler and stove top still work. I guess it's the ignitor. I don't have instructions anymore.

Lower oven burner will not light.


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?
