GE Spectra Oven won't heat

I have a GE Spectra oven model JGBP35BEA7BB. The problem is the oven won't heat. I set the temperature and hit start, but nothing happens (no sounds, no flame from the oven, digital reads 100). The broiler works still works, though. This is the 2nd time in 4 years this has happened. The first time we had a technician repair it for a couple hundred dollars. I am looking to avoid this costly repair and fix it myself if possible, but need assistance. Thanks!

Why t takes long time for oven to heat up?


Does the oven actually heat up with the temperature more than 100 or does it just stay at 100? Alternatively, when you open the oven can you see the orange glow of the flame through the vents in the bottom of the oven and hear the gas hissing?

GE Profile Spectra XL44 oven- Makes a popping noise while heating up


assuming you have a gas rang here sounds like a bad ignitor, too long to light causes a "popping "noise when it finally does, as well as extending cooking time and perhaps slight smell of gas while cooking, all signs of bad ignitor.when you start the oven should light bake bar in 40-60 secs. any longer, bad ignitor
easy part to replace yourself part num wb2x9154, remove bottom of oven cavity, 2 screws mount ignitor to burner and 2 wires lead from ignitor( use wire nuts provided if needed . and makes no difference which wire goes where theres no polarity.

GE gas oven spectra xl44 takes forever to preheat &sometimes will not


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)
Will all that said, more than likely the ignitor is bad in the oven, not drawing enough amperage to allow the safety valve to open. Even though the ignitor is lighting up and glowing, I'm 99% certain that this is the problem. Here is the part number for ignitor. WB2X9154 and can be ordered from any parts distributor or from a local supplier.

Replace the oven ignitor. (they get weak after a period of time, and will give those results, or stop heating altogether)
