Question about GE Kitchen Ranges
There could be several reasons.
Posted on Jul 31, 2008
The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven
ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas
valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately
(see the link below).
In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

This problem is commonly attributed to a bad igniter on the bake manifold. Each oven manifold (one for bake, one for broil) has its own igniter. They are both fed from the same gas source, though. So, if the broiler works, more than likely you simply need to replace the bake igniter. The following link explains:
The bake igniter tends to wear out faster, due to the frequency of use.
You can purchase replacements on line at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com, or repairclinic.com. Just use you model number as your search criteria.

you need to check the ignitor even if the ignitor glows it might not be pulling enough amps to call for gas replace the ignitor and this should take care of the problem

It appears your Ignitor has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.
