GE XL44 Gas Range

I have a GE JGBS23WEA1WW gas range (1996). Last week everything worked fine. Today I tried to light the burners, oven and broil with no success. My gas dryer, water heater, furnace all work fine but not the range. I ckecked to make sure the oven gas shut-off vavle was on. The glow light burner in the broiler compartment functions and the stove top electrodes appear to be working properly. Can you help?

Most likely the oven ignitor is bad or weak.  You can look at it and see how it compares to the broil ignitor.  If you see a whitish color on the ignitor and if it doesn't fully glow then it needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: KENMORE GAS STOVE OVEN LOWER BURNER WON'T WORK

bad oven ignitor is the most common cause of bake failure, located onthe side of hte burner bar itself, if youd like with a multi-meter, you can check the wires leading to the ignitor for 110v. if you have power and nothing was glowing from ignitor theres your problem

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?

XL44 Gas Range will not light


Kinda sounds like the hot surface igniter is out. It is located under the oven section under the bottom panel. They are relatively easy to replace except you need that oven today I'm sure. Let me know how it turned out.

To replace the hot surface you need to take the bottom panel off and access the assy you need a 1/4 nut runner and remove couple small screws unplug the igniter take it to a parts house and 12 to 20 dollars later you're good as gold. When I say parts house appliance parts.

XL44 GE oven not working. Bottom burner not getting gas.


You probably have a bad ignitor. If the ignitor does not draw at least 3.5 amps the gas valve will not open. This is a safety feature.
