Customer Question

I have a GE Profile Spectra XL44 gas oven and rage. The range works fine but the oven will not heat to a temperature over 100 degrees F. What do I need to do?

Hi, Thank you for using justanswer for your appliance questions!

First we need to see if your ignitor is heating up. Turn your oven on and see if you see a glow.

Reply to Chuck G.'s Post: I do not see a glow
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
No glow appears. It seems like my wife was mistaken about the oven actually heating up. The digital display does show 100 degrees after you push the enter button.
Expert:  Chuck G. replied 9 years ago.
Most likely your igniter is bad. It is located under the bottom oven liner, the part below the racks.
The part # XXXXX need is WB02X9154 readily available at your local appliance dealer. Approx cost about 65.00.Be SURE TO UNPLUG your range before servicing!

Hope this helps!

Yes! it has a different ignitor. Here is a break down of your part. You need # XXXXX

Do I remove the ignitor and metal casing, or just the ignitor itself? How do I disconnect the two wires?
Expert:  Chuck G. replied 9 years ago.
The new ignitor should have some instructions. The ignitor should have a disconnect (green in color) on one wire, the other wire should have a terminal on it. I would remove the manifold #26 on the diagram, for ease of ignitor replacement.
