my oven pilot light does not lite on my ge xl44

The oven will not light. I'm assuming it has a pilot light of some sort and it is not coming on when I turn the oven on. It is a GE XL44 model HF227023P serial number JGBP28BEA7WH. Some suggested the ignitor is out. Please help need to make a pizza....

The model JGBP28BEA7WH range has an ignitor that lights the bake burner. There is also an ignitor for the broil burner. Turn the broil burner on and you can see how the ignitor glows for 30-40 seconds then the gas to the burner comes on. The ignitor for the bake burner should do the same thing.

If the bake burner does not glow, it is probably bad. The ignitors for the bake and broil burners are not interchangeable.

If you have more questions reply with details of the testing you have done and we will try to help.
