Gas Ovens Only (Excludes Dual Fuel Ranges):
- Check the bake element. Turn your range OFF and either remove the fuses or turn the breaker OFF. Then unplug the range. Carefully inspect the bake element (lower element) for cracks or breaks. If it is cracked or broken, it will need to be replaced. To purchase a GE part or accessory on-line .
Even if the bake element is not broken or cracked, if it does not heat, service is needed. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
- On new gas range installations, make sure the range's main gas regulator on the range is set in the ON position. They are all shipped with the regulator in the ON position but, if jarred or bumped during installation, it can spring back to the OFF position. (This on/off lever on the regulator may not be apparent to most consumers. There is a picture of it in the Use and Care for all XL44's in the LP conversion section. Otherwise, service may have to reset the lever. Burners will still work with the valve off, but the oven will not!)

To view a short video on the oven not working with a standard burner:
Check the oven Glo-Bar Igniter. Turn the oven to the ON position, open the oven door, and look for a red glow. If no red glow is observed, there may be a malfunction with the Glo-Bar, the on/off control, or other electrical components. You will likely need service.
