GE XL44 Stove top works, oven/broiler don't

Model #JGBC20BEW2WH. I cannot get the oven to work. Looks to be an electric ignition (the unit was is the house when we moved in so I'm not familar w/ it). Stove top lights just fine, but when I turn on the Stove I'm not even smelling gas. I saw on one website where they had a diagram of a switch for the gas to the oven but my unit does not have this (at least not where it is supposed to be).

    I know the gas is connected because the stovetop works fine. It does concern me that I don't smell any gas when I try to light the oven however.

I looked up your model. This stove has sealed burners on top and uses silicone carbide igniotrs to operate the oven. The ignitor must pull at least 3.2 amps or beter to light the oven. They get weak.

I have recently moved into a new house and can't get the oven to work. I was hoping to get a manual for the wall oven and see if this information will solve my problem. It is a 1993 model EVBS3193...


So you have moved to a new house. I am assumeing that the Oven worked fine at the old house. I am also assumeing that you have plugged the Oven into your new house and that is when you noticed that it was not working.

If this is the case then the problem may be that the Breaker in the Electrical Sevice Panel of the new house is off. You need to reset the breaker and the Oven should then work.

Elderly tenant unable to use oven as they don't know how to turn it on. elements work ok as new so what is the trick. manual not avl from owner of rental house


You have not mentioned the make model of the oven, whether it is gas or electric.
Please check for gas line, gas valve, gas regulator to open and ignite.
If electric make sure there is power at the outlet, if the circuit has tripped, check mains.
Please consult your landlord before you pull out any units as he could be the best help.

You need to replace the igniters for the top or the ignition filiment if it is the bottom.  You can get these at any appliance center.

Lighting a pilot light in a 30 year old roper gas range


Lift the top lid and look for a cylinder or something similar with tubing going into it there should be a button of some sort on the side. if you are lucky the button will have a red cap on it. press the button in and light the pilot inside the oven. hold the button for a minute or so until the pilot stays on. kind of like lighting a water heater.
