    Same problem, but we also periodically get a good wiff of natural gas odor. We occasionally will hear a "waoompfff" when the gas ignites.

    Same problem, same approximate age of stove. Oven does not light as it should. If you leave it on for 30 minutes, it might light. Also, we sometimes smell gas. The "glow plug" that should light the gas is glowing bright. I think the gas is not coming into the burner properly. What to do?

    I am having the same problems with the ARG7800 stove. The temperature never go beyond 125, and sometimes there's a strong gas smell. I see that a few people posted the same problems, but I am wonder did anyone has a fix for this issue.

    Gas oven works fine sometimes, then at other times, it is just warm. I see the light at the base of the oven but it is just luke warm - and there is a slight smell of gas.

Replace the bake igniter in the bottom of the oven. It corrodes over time and as the resistance increases it finally reaches a point where the voltage is two low to open the gas valve. It's a ten minute job and the part cost $45-65.

I have the same problem with mine. It just started a few days ago. I would turn the oven on, and it would take forever to heat up. The gas flame has been making a lot of noise when lighting and when going out. I removed the bottom plate in the oven and have found that the gas is not coming on. It would after a while, and occasionally. But not when called for. Either it needs a new valve, or the electronics are messed up. I will have to look into it. may have to call someone to fix it. If you find the solution please let me know.

Oven takes forever to preheat

The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

The number one problem for these ovens is the ignitor. This one is your ignitor according to your model number When it is weak it is intermittent. Sometimes you can get the oven to work if you give it a swift kick. This video explains how it works:

GE Spacemaker Microwave XL1400- No heat

The problem could be anything from a defective control circuit board or a burned out magnetron tube. Either fix is quite expensive and you'll have to evaluate whether you think the repair is worth the cost vs buying a new microwave.

Bear in mind that a fixed microwave is still a used microwave. So to get an apples-to-apples comparison you have to ask yourself, would I pay $XXX (substitute XXX's with actual repair cost) for my used microwave?
