SOURCE: GE Spectra TrueTemp Oven Pilot is Out

REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

Hi, There is a glow igniter that has to glow and open the gas valve to ignite the flame.
Are you seeing any glow below the floor of the oven? Remove the floor on=f the oven and you will see the igniter. If you have a voltage meter, You can remove the ignitor from the manifold ans test it. Put your meter leads into the connection and turn the oven on, (ONLY long enough to see if you have 120V.
If there is voltage, replace the igniter. They can still glow but be bad. The igniter gets weak and will not open the gas valve. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

There is likely some kind of gas line blockage or valve problem. This is not a do-it-yourself fix. Call a repair person.

SOURCE: ge x stove, burners work, oven does not, where is

I tried to get a picture of the range with you model #, but I think the number is wrong. Maybe you could check it. However, if the oven isn't lighting you may need a new igniter. These are also called glow coils, when they get weak they glow orange and they need to be white hot to ignite the gas for you. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will

    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    Modern ovens, especially Profile top-of-the-GE-line don;'t usually have pilot lights. Light with electric element when thermostat is good.

    Oven pilot went out due to power outage. I don't know where the pilot oven light is. where is the pilot light to light the oven?Ge XL44


    pilot over lights do not require power to stay light or should it go out in a power outage! do you have to normally light pilot with a match? if not you have a glow coil and its a electronic ignition range and power will affect it. once power is restored you should just be able to turn on over and everything would be ok.if it is a pilot light you need to remove the bottom door stick arm in to back and you'll see the pilot assembly at back if you look up! hopethis helps...

    The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.

      How to light Oven Pilot for Magic Chef stove 31000 PAW


      There is a cover plate that has two screws holding it down. Inspect the pilot area and you will see a hot surface igniter sitting right next to it.. That is what lights pilot and then the pilot lights main burner. You need a new igniter. Also do not touch any part of the hot surface igniter as human oil will shorten the life of part.

      Often times you will have problems with the gas thermostat and not necessarily with the safety valve. Once you have lit the pilot light, turn the oven knob to any temperature. The pilot light should get bigger in size of flame. If not, the thermostat that controls the oven must be replaced. If the pilot light does get bigger, but the stove does not ignite, it is the safety valve.

      GE XL44 Range


      The pilot light is lit to light the main burner. First off, is your pilot light lit or is the igniter lit. There are two thermal sensor in the oven. One is above your pilot light and will not let the pilot light stay lit unless there is a flame. Secondly, you have a thermal sensor in your oven wired all the way to the switch to turn the oven on. If it thinks that it is at temp, then it will never turn on. This sensor may become bad or the case of my oven break. But if these are good, you many have a clogged burning unit underneath. Cleaning according to the owners manual may correct that. Check your owners manual to see what is user serviceable. Gas is nothing to play with.
