The pilot your seeing is the ignitor the gas valve coils are probably bad these are mounted on top of the gas supply valve on the burner tube,you need to unplug the unit and remove the top and front cover to access the valve and coils,there are 2 screws securing the gas coil valves onto the gas valve remove these and remove the bracket,unplug the coils and reverse to re assemble the unit

Gas dryers have electronic ignition. No pilot to worry about. Dry away. Careful, don't lose those socks now. Have a good day.

I have a VC Wonderfire model 2610. The pilot flame is perfect blue on both sides... however, when I hit the switch for the main burner to come on...the pilot goes out... any ideas ???


You may have moved the safety sensor or pilot flame tip. The pilot light heats a wire. The wire is the safety sensor. The wire has to be clean and in the pilot flame near the flame tip.

The oven pilot does not light. The broiler will not work. The only thing that does is the light. GE XL44 range. The burners light and the pilots stay lit.


    If you have standing pilots, make sure the pilot for the oven/broiler is lit as well.  When you turn the thermostat up to call for heat, you should see the pilot get larger. That larger pilot flame heats a hydraulic sensor and opens the main burner valve.

    The oven doesn't come on-but the self clean and broiler work


    Check the electronic starter/pilot ignition on the bottom oven burner. It may be dirty, too far away from the pilot gas or the temp sensor on the pilot light flame may need replacing.

    Dryer won't heat. Replaced sensor and ignitor. Flame initially comes on and heats temporarily but then shuts back off. Any ideas?


    Make sure the thermocouple is in the flame of the pilot light,and using compressed air clean out the pilot light,and see if that will solve the problem.

    GE Spectra TrueTemp Oven Pilot is Out


    REmove bottom panel from stove. shut gas off for at LEAST 5 min. Longer is better. Then placel open flame above gas nozzle, slowly turn to ignite posiiton. After it is lit, wait 30 seconds and turn to on positon.
    If by chance this model doens't have a knob for this, then turn gas valve off for 5 min, let fumes evaporate, light flame, place over nozzle, turn gas on.replace bottom oven panel slowly.

    Gas oven dosnt work


    the pilot light is there for 2 purposes. number 1 to light the burner and number 2 to heat up the thermocouple, thermocouple is a wire that the flame from pilot suppose to surround by fire. if the pilot is to low it will not reach the thermocouple. you can take the gas line that supplies gas to the pilot and clean it with a safety pin or a small needle. you can test the thermocouple by heating it up with a blow torch on low heat, get it red hot and then turned on the oven. if the oven works clean the pilot, if the oven do not work, replace the thermocouple if separate from safety valve. if thermocouple is part of it replace the safety valve.

    Stove top pilot light


    I have a GE Gas Stove XL44 the stove top buners don't light by themselves without manual lighting. When I turn on the buner knob the buner doesn't click. Also I used my self- cleaning oven for the first time and stopped it before the time was up after that is when the stove top buners wouldn't light by theirselves.

    GE GAS RANGE OVEN PROBLEM


    two options.first does the pilot flame look good (a nice blue flame)?if so you will see a metal probe next to the pilot,use some sandpaper and clean that probe up.if that solves your problem so be it.second if the first thing doesnt work its probably the ignitor board not sensing the flame.the way to definitly tell the one or the other use a small torch and heat up the probe like i said and turn the oven on.if the main burner comes on then you know its the probe which is called a thermocouple and is cheap.hope this helps.

    GE XL44 Range


    The pilot light is lit to light the main burner. First off, is your pilot light lit or is the igniter lit. There are two thermal sensor in the oven. One is above your pilot light and will not let the pilot light stay lit unless there is a flame. Secondly, you have a thermal sensor in your oven wired all the way to the switch to turn the oven on. If it thinks that it is at temp, then it will never turn on. This sensor may become bad or the case of my oven break. But if these are good, you many have a clogged burning unit underneath. Cleaning according to the owners manual may correct that. Check your owners manual to see what is user serviceable. Gas is nothing to play with.
