Question about Ovens

1 Answer

I have a GE XL44 range/oven that the ignitors on the top burners are clicking even when all the control knobs are turned off. The only way I can get them to stop is to switch off the breaker. What are some of the possibilities to fix?

    I knew about the ignitor, but I was checking to see if it was just wet from a cleaning. I will order the new part and install.

It's most likely that the switch in one of your burners has gone shorted out causing it to remain on. Some models can be adjusted to control the ignition but on most you'll need to replace the control that's malfunctioning. Although you don't notice it most stove have only one igniter that fires at all the burners when ever you light a burner. You should be able to get the parts you need at the link below or they can direct you to a local parts store:

I have a GE True Temp XL44 oven the stove burners work fine but the oven will not light. When I turn it on the oven, I do not smell any gas. What is the problem and how do I fix it?


could be a problem with the ignitor. take the racks out of the oven. remove bottom panel in oven. remove metal plate covering the flame spreader. the ignitor should now be visible. turn the oven on. the ignitor should begin to glow. if it doesn't glow bright white, or bright glow, ignitor is bad and needs to be changed.

Ge xl44 gas range, oven will not come on. everthing else works fine


If you see the ignitor glowing down there that means power is getting to the oven circuit. You have a weak ignitor if that is the case. Sometimes you can bump it and make it work. Check out this video

Ge xl44 oven not igniting but burners ignite


The most common failure for a nobake on this type of oven is the bake ignitor. turn unit on and look at the bottom of the oven, you should after about 30-45 seconds see an ORANGE glow, if you do not, chances are you have a failed ignitor.Remove lower part of oven and if you have a meter, place one lead on each terminal and check for continuity( a closed circuit)
If you have an "open" circuit, the ignitor is bad

GE XL44 heating issue


I have not seen a regulator issue on a gas range, other than if one was not converted when Nat to LP gas (or vise versa) was done. At this point a repair person may have to be called to use a manometer to check gas pressures. They will check pressure at the oven burner orifice with at least one top burner on. The range does not have more than one burner setting. It's either on or off. For this issue, you may have the best luck contacting your gas supplier.

My GE Xl44 gas burners will not ignite


If there is no spark at all then the circut is not being completed. The main problem that I had was that there was no ignition even though there WAS a spark and gas. I cleaned out the small pin hole sized inlet on the gas valve with a needle. This allowed the gas to enter the feeder and distribute the gas towards the ignition spark properly.

Also it is very important that the range be level. If there is a pitch to the range the gas may be exiting the distribution cap improperly resulting in improper distribution!
