Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I need to replace the lower igniter on my GE oven. There is very little clearance between the bottom of the oven and the igniter screws. What is the best way to access those screws: remove the metal plates in the bottom of the oven or pull out the oven burner (to which the igniter is attached)? Thanks in advance.

I believe my oven igniter is bad in my GE Profile XL44 Stove. How do I go about replacing it myself?


On most GE models: Remove oven bottom by removing two screws at very back of oven floor, lifting up back side of floor, pulling back a bit to disengage front of oven floor, and remove. Next, remove flame spreader, allowing you to see burner and igniter. It is easiest to remove the burner assembly to change out the igniter.

Oven's bake funktion does not work


Hi,You need to replace the oven igniter. You will find that this is a very common problem with that model and other models that use this igniter. It is very simple to do.
Look inside the oven and you will find 2 screws at the bottom of the oven in the back. Loosen them up and remove the bottom panel of the oven.
Remove the broiler, and oven trays and it is a 10 minute swap out. Removing the above items allows you the access needed to get to the two screws that mount the oven igniter to the burner.
Using either a socket (1/4") or a nut driver, remove the 2 screws and unplug the igniter. The most difficult part of the exchange is unplugging the igniter. The plastic will most likely break because it has become very brittle by being exposed to the heat. Be careful to break only the part that is being replaced.
If you do happen to break the fittings, they can be replaced with any male/female connector. If you need to replace this, I recommend that you stay away from plastic encased plugs.
You then install the ingiter, plug it in, and you are back in business. It is a very simple part to replace, but it is costly.
Thanks and take care

How do I get to the oven igniter. Oven function stopped working, broiler still works


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 screws holding the igniter on. GE likes to put them on an angle, so it is easier to remove the burner tube. Remove the bottom drawer and remove the screws securing the burner to the back wall. There should be one in the front to. The burner will now lift up and you can get at the screws. The new igniter 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 steps to reassemble.
You can go to www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html and watch a free ideo on performing an amp draw check on the igniter. Also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model.

Replacing Oven Igniter


PULL OUT THE DRAWER AND THAT WILL ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO THE 1/4" SCREWS IN THE LOWER REAR THAT HOLDS THE BURNER IN PLACE ALONG WITH THE FRONT SINGLE 1/4" SCREW. NEED A FLASHLIGHT FOR THIS. THIS FREES UP THE BURNER SO YOU CAN ACCESS THE IGNITER MOUNT SCREWS.

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.

Oven will not heat up


The oven ignitor is more than likley your problem. It has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas valve all the way. If it is weak it may not be doing it's job. The part number I have for this ignitor is 316030600. It's located under the flame spreader in the oven. One other thing to check is the burner itself. This would be the tube that the flames come out of. Make sure that is is not rotted or plugged. Catriver
