What i have discovered on my GE XL44 range is that on the front burner, which does not light, the auto ignition does not arc - all of the other 3 burner ignitors arc when any knob is turned to the "lite" position. If I jiggle the ignitor on this front burner, it will arc and light once and then will no longer do so. Do I need to replace the ignitor electrode or adjust the wiring on this burner and how do I get to this part?

If it is the electrode that I replaced this looks like the part number information but I'm not sure how to replace it: Electrode Part for GE, Model # JGBP28BEA1WH Number: WB13K10003

A:

You need to remove the range top to access the clip that holds the electrode in the burner.

Remove the grates and burner caps. Remove the screws on each burner that mount it to the range. You might have to pry the burners off the cooktop with a putty knife. The burners tend to stick to the cooktop.

With the burners removed, you can lift the cooktop off the range.

The part number of the electrode you sent is the correct part number.

Thanks. Is there anything special I need to know or special tools I need to use to disconnect and reconnect the electrode (eg, how is the wiring to the electrode handled - is there a terminal that plugs onto the electrode or do I need to attach the wiring with wire nuts or solder)? Does the electrode plug into something?

Also is the fact that the electrode arcs sometimes and not others a sign of the electrode being bad or the writing to the electrode?

A:

There is a terminal on the electrode and a wire that plugs on it. You won't need any special tools to remove the wire or the clip on the electrode. The fact that the electrode is erratic indicates the probable cause is the wiring or the electrode. If you make the room dark and look at the electrode as you turn it on, you will probably see where the arcing is taking place.

Many repairs require some assistance. While your waiting on an expert to respond I have provided you with a link on how to change the electrode on your range. This isn't the exact model but it should give you an idea of what to expect when you do repair the electrode. If you wish to schedule service you could visit the Sears Home Services website. I attached both links below. I hope this helps!

I sent you this answer earlier. I did not realize the screws on your range are under the top burners. The rest of the answer is accurate.

Good luck.

I am not able to find information on a GE stove with model number 317B6034. Most GE model numbers begin with letters such as JB . . . I recommend that you check the range for a model number. There is normally a sticker on the side of the opening to the oven cavity. Open the oven door to view this area.

If you have a gas range, your problem with the oven not working could be caused by a failed igniter on the bake burner. A bad control board (or thermostat) could also cause this problem. Check to see if the ignitor is glowing when you set the oven in a bake mode. You can pull the bottom panel out of the oven cavity and remove the flame spreader to observe the ignitor. If the ignitor is glowing, then your most likely failure is the ignitor itself. Although it is glowing, it is not likely reaching the ignition temperature. It must heat properly and the resistance of the ignitor must decrease to a point where enough current flows through the circuit to light the burner. I provided an image below that explains the theory of operation for a glow bar ignitor system.

If you have pilot lights in your gas range, you will likely need to check the pilot light for the bake burner.

This failure on an electric range could be caused by a bad bake element. You can unplug the range and check the resistance of the bake element using a volt/ohm meter. The resistance through most bake elements will be between 10 and 30 ohms. If the bake element is "open" (measures Ol -- open load or infinite resistance) then it will need to be replaced.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

These tips may help you resolve this bake problem in your range. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and the full model number of your GE range.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thanks for providing the model number. The image below shows the theory of operation for the glow bar ignitor system on this range. You can pull up the bottom panel of the oven and the flame spreader to see if the ignitor is glowing on the bake burner when it is set to heat. If the ignitor is glowing but the burner won't ignite (or stay burning) then a weak ignitor is your likely failure. You can order the ignitor from the Sears PartsDirect.com website. I provided a direct link to that part below this reply. If the ignitor is not glowing, you could still have a bad ignitor, a bad control board, an "open" safety gas valve or a wiring failure in the circuit. Reply with additional details if you need more help with this problem.
