Re: problem with gas double oven
Im in uk not us so don't know this particular appliance. however many gas appliances turn on the ignitors for other parts than the one required - ie if one burner on a hob is lit, the other ignitors spark as well. suspect you don't really have a fault

Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.
Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.
Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.
When the ignitor glows brightly and the oven doesn't light it is
usually a defective ignitor. The way to know if the ignitor is good or
bad is to read the amp draw of the ignitor with an amp or watt meter.
The gas valve and the ignitor are wired in series and for the gas valve
to draw the current the ignitor has to draw 3.5-3.8 amps.If the ignitor is drawing 3.5-3.8 amps the new gas valve is defective. If it is drawing less amps the ignitor is defective.
First the ignitor must glow very bright / compare the broiler ignitor to the bake on... the ignitor must pull 3.6 amps to open the gas valve... so even if it does glow it must glow bright and evenly to pull the 3.6 amp... you can test it if you have an AMP meter...
Gas valve do fail but it is rare... it is most likely a weak ignitor... hope it help please let me know...
Check the voltage on the 2 wires going to the oven gas valve. If you get 120v when the ignitor is on with no gas coming out, you have a bad gas valve. If you get voltage, but it is not much, it is the ignitor. The ignitors don't burn out completely on the ovens, they just get a little dim and no longer ignite the gas and eventually will not turn on the gas valve
if you remove the 2 screws on the right and left bottom plate and open the door and youll see 2 screws that panel will come off turn the oven on and you should see 2 burners on both sides and they should ignite.if they do and go right out you could have 2 problems.when the burners light they hit a probe called a flame sense.this probe plugs into a heat board and if the board doesnt sense the flame you will get a red no ignition light.clean the probes that sit right on the burners with sandpaper and see what happens,if that doesnt work if the unit has pilots clean the pilot orfice and if that doesnt work the heat board may be bad.how old is the unit?
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.
Trey, this is not a hard fix. More than likley your ignitor for the oven has gone bad. It has to draw a certain amount of amps to open the gas valve. If you remove the bottom panel in the oven, should be 2 screws in the back and lift it out, you will see the flame spreader. Remove this, should be a couple 1/4 inch screws. Now you will be looking at the burner and ignitor. The part number for the ignitor is wb13k0021. The ignitor is held on to the burner with 2 1/4 inch screws. It is not uncommon for these ignitors to fail within 4 years....Catriver...post back.
