The glow that you see is the electronic ignitor. If it is glowing and not getting hot you will need to replace the ignitor. It is not strong enough to open the gas valve. They grow weak over time.

My ge xl44 gas range ..all of a sudden the oven does not work...eveything else does... do i need someone to come out? HELP...


Probably just a weak ignitor. Fairly common on these. If you can change a spark lug you can change an ignitor.. These get weak and dim. if yours comes on but is dim orange it is weak and not allowing the bi-metal to open. If yall bump the stove and the oven comes on that is another sign of a worn out ignitor:

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)

GE gas stove the burners on top work, the oven won't get hot


The most common reason a gas oven won't heat is a bad igniter. It is located near the valve and burner under the oven bottom. You can usually see it glow orange just before the fire lights. Most GE ranges take a cylindrical igniter part #WB2X9154 or #WB13K21 rectangular igniter.

Oven won't light


Probably a bad oven igniter. Remove oven floor then remove flame spreader. Turn oven on and see if igniter glows. If it does and still doesn't light gas, it's probably weak. Replace the igniter!
If it doesn't glow, remove and take to your parts store. They should ne able to check it to see if it's opened up.. If so replace it!
