Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.Since your oven still works on broil, it sounds like your bake igniter is just going out and needs to be replaced. Igniters generally last about 6-8 years normally and then they either stop working all together, or they just get weak and don't draw 3.2 amps even though they are glowing. If an igniter doesn't pull 3.2 amps, the oven gas safety valve will not open up. Now the bake igniter is mounted to the bake burner below the floor inside the oven so you'd need to pull the floor out of the oven to access the igniter for replacement. The part usually costs about $40-50 or so depending on the exact model number which is located on a sticker around the front frame of the oven and can be seen if you open the door or remove the drawer below the door if there is one. XL44 is just a model type, not the model number.
