Customer Question
Hi- The lower oven...

Hi- The lower oven on our GE double oven (gas) won't work. The display shows that the temperature steady at 100F. But it doesn't get above that, and there's not heat coming from the unit. The range burners and the upper oven work. Any ideas?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It's about five years old. The model number is *****

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible. I'm hoping there's a quick and easy fix. If not, I'll have to call someone.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. Thx.

To start, this isn't a thermostat issue because the thermostat knows it's not heating since it's displaying 100F. 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. Below is a link to the igniter for your model and it costs about $50.
