Inspect your flame tube to see if all the holes have a nice blue flame coming from them.
If the flame is not coming from all the holes or the flame is yellow or orange with some soot build up, then have a qualified technician service the unit immediately.
Do not use the oven until it has been inspected and certfied safe.

I have a GE Hotpoint stove/range model num 317B6641P001 that the oven will not ignite nor will the igniter turn on.


It sounds like the ignitor is bad...you will not or should not smell gas if ignitor is bad...gas valve is not supposed to open until the sensor by the ignitor has reached a certain temp. It's a safety feature. If you replace the ignitor, it should work like normal.

I have a used kenmore propane gas stove that i just bought from someone. We have hooked it up but can only get the oven to come on. The stove top burners will not come on. We we turn on the burners we do...


In the old days stoves were lit with a match. If this does not work for you it would be due to the stove's lines remaining "airlogged" after the move. The oven purged and ignited more easily because it has a much larger orifice, so the air bled more quickly. I expect if you were to leave one burner turned on long enough for the air to bleed out you will find it to ignite normally. Do not leave the stove to bleed unattended, and if you encounter a strong smell of the gas, turn off the burner, and ventilate the room as needed. The smell of gas would indicate that gas is present, it may be possible that a lead came disconnected from the ignition module in the back of the stove. Again if this is the case, the ol' match will light the burner. Be Careful!

Ge xl44 range gas smell


it's the safety valve, it's bypassing the gas. for you to put soup in there you will have to remove the oven burner. and put the soup on the tip of the orifice that's where the burner sits on.

The gas valve may be failing. The 'whooshing sound' you hear may be the gas valve closing too slowly when the oven cycles off or the cavity is filling with gas and igniting when the oven cycles on. The gas you smell may be an indication that the valve is not closing completely. This can be potentially dangerous if the oven fills with gas then ignites. I would not operate the stove any longer and shut off the gas to the stove.
