    We lost power in the ice storm here in the NE- we just got our power back on and the stove top works but not the oven. We didnt buy this oven and there were no books to show where the pilot light is to light the oven. Can you tell me where the pilot light is in the oven so I can light it?!
    Thanks!

    GE XL44 stove oven. The oven worked fine and then two hours later it went dead even though then igniter still is working. I tried to light the oven manually and there is no gas coming to be ignited with the match. THe stove top works fine. This is for natural gas and is 10 or more years old.

Hi thanks for the question just because the igniter lights up doesn't mean its good, the gas will not light, if igniter isn,t hot enough. and a very common problem is that the igniter does come on, but not hot enough to ignite the gas . replace the igniter thanks the appliance doc

My GE gas XL44 oven will not broil (upper flame burner). It worked as recently as last night. The Broil indicator is lit when selected. The upper broil burners do not flame-on. Thanks, Jeremy


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

GE XL44 Gas Stove and Oven. Everything works normal except the oven which stopped working suddenly (no flame). Couldn't find the manual to check troubleshooting guide.


The oven uses a silicone carbide ignitor which requires 3.6 amps or better to open the gas safety valve.
If you don't see any glow from it then it is either blown or the gas valve has gone bad. If it is glowing but not real bright it probably is weak.
How it works: Silicone Carbide Ignition

I have a GE Spectra XL44, model #JGBP40BEC4WH gas oven. The 4 burners on top work but the oven will not. I replaced the oven safety valve (dual type 1), thinking that it was stuck and not directing gas to...


Most likely, you're oven igniter is not getting hot enough to open the gas valve to ignite the burner. It glows like normal, but does not reach the temperature required to open the gas valve. Replace the igniter. Before you replace that, make sure that the small shutoff lever on the appliance regulator was not accidentally closed, which would turn off the gas to the oven, while still allowing gas to the stovetop. The silver lever should be sticking straight out or up. Douglas

Replaced gas safety valve, burner flame now too hot


Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the safety valve.Probably about 2 turns. Then adjust the air shutter to mostly open.

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

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.

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!
