The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    I need instructions on how to light the pilot light on a GE XL44 Stove. Model#JGBS15PEA2AD


    MOST modern appliances that use gas ignition (including dryers) no longer use a pilot. These appliances are now equipped with a burner assembly with electric igniters. The following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to access the them on a gas range:

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

    If you are having ignition problems with one of the oven manifolds (bake or broil), it may be a simple matter of a weak or bad igniter. If BOTH manifolds are experiencing the same problem, you may have a bad regulator or electronic oven control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all your oven features.

    The surface burners use an electrode type igniter for ignition. There is one mounted next to each surface burner assembly. They get their electric source from a spark module. If none of the surface igniters are working, you may have a bad spark module. If one single burner is not igniting, the problem is probably the electrode.

    If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

    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.

    My GE XL44 doesn't heat up to full temperature.


    There are several things to check.
    1) check the broil element
    The broil element participates in the preheat and if the element isn't working it will take forever to reach temp.If the element is good 2)check the broil relay
    If the relay does not activate when you press"broil" the control needs to be repaired.They are a few more things to check but you can start with the above.
    We rebuild these controls.

    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.

    GE XL44 Range


    The pilot light is lit to light the main burner. First off, is your pilot light lit or is the igniter lit. There are two thermal sensor in the oven. One is above your pilot light and will not let the pilot light stay lit unless there is a flame. Secondly, you have a thermal sensor in your oven wired all the way to the switch to turn the oven on. If it thinks that it is at temp, then it will never turn on. This sensor may become bad or the case of my oven break. But if these are good, you many have a clogged burning unit underneath. Cleaning according to the owners manual may correct that. Check your owners manual to see what is user serviceable. Gas is nothing to play with.
