I have a Hotpoint range model RGB745BEH. The oven


Check the glowbar ignitor in the oven. If it does not glow or glows weakly replace it. If you are handy with a amp meter you can check the ignitor. If it shows 3 amps or less,replace the ignitor.

Everything else works fine except oven won't light


If its a gas stove/oven and everything else is ok, then its the ignitor at the bottom of your oven. first Open your oven door alittle til its stops the first time then pull it up and out. that gives you freedom to work. then pull out the racks. Now you have two screws that hold down the cover of where the ignitor is, unscrew those and pull off the cover, you'll see the ignitor. Pull out the drawer at the bottom and you'll see where its connected, disconnect it and take it to an appliance parts store where you can order one. Take the new one and splice the original wires onto to the new ignitor( make sure to use the ceramic wire nuts) and reconnect it and there you have it. It'll take you alittle time so dont rush. I change them all the time, it takes me like 10-15 min. You dont have to turn off the breaker, just DONT turn the oven knob ON

How to locate and remove oven ignitor


Will need to remove the panel at the bottom, inside of the oven.  Some have another panel under that, yours may not, to remove.  The ignitor is under that in the back middle.  Should be screws that mount the ignitor to the burner.  You may be able to remove the bottom drawer and unplug the ignitor underneath the oven and remove the ignitor.  If not you can cut the wires on the old ignitor and splice in the new one using ceramic wire nuts.  Let me know if this helps.

Installing WB2x9154


For women from a woman's point of view: Most if not all the screws were hex head 1/4. Have appropriate tools. A socket set will work. I like my little cordless screw driver. You will also need wire strippers and two wire nuts, they say ceramic wire nuts and electrical tape. It is also a good idea to have a someone else there for safety sake. I tipped the stove back.
Take everything our of the oven. Take big screws out at the back bottom of oven. Lift bottom of oven and push toward the back of oven. (There is a lip at the front that oven floor slides unde). Be careful as there are sharp edges all over the place once this oven bottom is off. Next unscrew the screw at the front middle of oven that holds the long burner in place. Next pull the stove drawer out and set aside. Pull stove out just enought to put large juice cans under the front legs. Way at the back you will see where the burner comes down to the gas line. There are two screws holding it to the back of the stove, remove them. Next find the two wires that come from the igniter. Unplug them. Lift out the burner. Unscrew the two screws that hold the igniter on to the burner. Carefully put the new ignitor on the burner. If the new ends do not match the old ones or if they are shorter, cut the old ones off near the old ignitor. Cut the ends off the new ignitor as far from the ignitor as you can. Clean the ends off so that about a half inch of wire is bare. Put the old ends on the new wire so that you can plug them in. Hold the two like wires so that both bare wires are parallel and screw on the wire nut. Lay it parallel to one wire and wrap electrical tape around it so that it will not pull loose. Plug in the way it was originally. Put everything back together opposite of the way you took it apart.

GE XL44 gas oven


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.
