GE HotPoint XL44 Gas Range Model RGB528

Hello Gurus. Neither the oven or broiler ignites (but the stovetop does). The glo-bar in the oven does not glow. I assume at this point (due to a little research online) that the glo-bar or igniter failed. What has me confused is this statement that I found on this site:

"An easy way to determine if you may have an igniter problem is to check BOTH your oven features. If the oven doesn’t light, check the broiler and vice versa. Since both the BROIL manifold and BAKE manifold are fed from the same gas source, but have separate igniters, it’s an easy assumption to make that the igniter may be bad, if one or the other doesn’t light."

Does this mean that even if one item (oven or broiler) isn't working, the other still should be since they use two separate igniters?

If neither the oven or broiler ignites, and the gas regulator is open, and the glo-bar doesn't glow, does that mean that two igniters need to be replaced?

Any other info you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    thanks. The oven and broiler have been working up to this point (wife constantly uses both). The glo-bar is not "glowing". The glo-bar is in the oven near the top, and the igniter is down in the broiler area.

    So it is most likely the glo-bar or the igniter?

Hi,
My bet is that the broiler ignitor has been out for a while and you just never knew it...
I would change the ignitor as a first try to fix it it is themost common failure..

Me GE Gas oven is not working, but broiler and range do ?


I am working with model JGBP26WEH1WW GE Gas range: You do not need to remove the back or even turn over, just remove the storage pan at the base of the unit and disconect the two plugs (unique plugs). You will need to splice your old conectors to your new igniter. Yes you have the correct igniter for that model.

GE XL44 Oven and stovetop work - broiler does not work


The broiler is the top element in the oven. Look at it. Bad ones sometimes have burnt into or have a melted spot. If it looks ok take it out by removing the screws at the back and pull the wires out a little and unplug the element. With an ohm meter it should show continuity. Replace it if any of these things apply.

Broiler and stovetop work oven does not


You may have a simple problem of a defective igniter. The following link explains igniters 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. Just because an igniter glows, does not mean it is good. If the igniter is weak, the gas safety valve will not open and gas will not flow.

NOTE: If BOTH manifolds were experiencing the same problem, you would potentially have had a bad regulator or electronic oven control (EOC) board. The EOC controls all your oven features.

A replacement igniter for your range can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcapplaincerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The part should come complete with installation instructions as well.

If you require additional assistance, please let me know. Please post back with a COMPLETE model number (usually located on a nameplate around the oven door, or lower drawer opening) so that I may assist you better. Some manufacturers place the model number on the back of the operator console.

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

Ours is a xl44 spectra oven will not ignite, broiler sometimes.


Don't you regret now to have shoved your old range out the door? Sorry, it just seems that each time we replace something we end up regretting it.

Your problem is appparently not uncommon and while the model numbers differ, I think you will find the solution in the discussion lined below:
