I have a GE XL44 (gas). My stove burners work just fine but my oven won't start and neither will my broiler. I don't use the broiler at all so my only concern is what could be the problem? When I start the oven there is no sound at all.
ANSWER Renee, You're on track, If the glow bar igniter WB2X9154 is cracked or broken, The burner will not release and ignite the gas. You'll need to remove the racks, and oven bottom panel, remove the flame spreader on the top of the burner and see if you can find the cracked or broken spot in the igniter. You can then program a bake cycle and temperature, if the igniter does not start to glow in 30 seconds, a bad igniter is a very good educated guess and replacing it will probably solve your issue.
