GE XL44 gas oven

Can anyone provide instructions to change an oven igniter The stove works, but not the oven or broiler. The igniter works (it glows and I feel a lot of heat), but I don't smell any gas when I turn on the oven switch. Any suggestions?

Starfish, remove the oven racks, in back there will be two chrome screws, remove them. Lift the lower oven panel out by pulling up from the rear. Remove the screws holding the flame spreader and remove the flame spreader. Now you will see the burner and igniter attached to it. There are 2 quarter inch hex screws holding the ignitor on. GE likes to put them on an angle where you cant get at them. If you have trouble you can remove the bottom drawer and remove the screws securing the burner to the back wall. There should be one in the front too. The burner will now lift up and you can get at the screws. The new ignitor should come with ceramic wire nuts. Just cut the old igniter, strip the ends of the wires going to it and wire nut the new one on. Reverse the rest of the steps. Here's a little trouble shooting schem. Catriver...post back.

Well..that's a gas issue, not an ignitor issue..did you check for the pilot to be active? or is this pilot less?

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..

My GE Sprctra XL44 oven does not work, but the broiler and stove top still work. I guess it's the ignitor. I don't have instructions anymore.

XL44 oven will not work


The fact that the igniter on the broiler actually begins to glow rules out your Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. Usually when both oven features fail to work the EOC, or wiring, is the culprit. But...in your situation, the broiler igniter glows, but the bake igniter doesn't. You don't see this happen very often, but I believe you may have two bad igniters. The following link explains how to replace an igniter and gives you some theory behind how they operate:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r401858-replacing_oven_igniter_gas_range

Although an igniter glows, it still may be bad. This is usually dependent upon the age of the stove and the frequency of use. Usually, the bake igniter burns out first, because it is used more often. These igniters also grow weak with age. Which means, if they do not draw the required current necessary to open the gas safety valve, you will not have ignition. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling the oven box before ignition. I would recommend replacing both igniters to see if this corrects your problem. If you require additional assistance, or have questions, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps solve your problem.

Getting to the Pilot


Your model JGBP28DED2WH uses spark ignition on the stove top burners, and a glow bar ignitor, part number WB2X9154 for the oven and broiler. To get to the bake ignitor if oven will not light: Take the racks out of the oven. Remove oven floor by removing two screws at back of oven floor and lifting floor. Remove the square metal flame spreader to get to the burner / ignitor assembly. (note: The ignitor may still glow when you try it, but usually is still the problem)
