I replaced the ignitor on my XL44 and it still doesn't kick on, I am looking for a new solution.

** GE XL44 **

I'm afraid that is not enough information to identify the appliance in question. What is needed is its exact model number ("XL44" isn't it). If you post it we can look it up to see what appliance design you're dealing with.

You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:

- Model Number Tag Location Guide

** I replaced the ignitor and it still doesn't kick on **

What won't "kick on"? The oven burner or the ignitor??

More accurate details of what is or is not occurring is needed before anyone will be able to accurately suggest possible causes. You can read about how common gas oven ignition systems work and the observations and tests necessary to start diagnosing problems with them at the following link:

** Model Number is JGBP35WEA6WW **

Great but we also need accurate details of what is or is not occurring.

At first the oven didn't work. The broiler did, the burners did, but the oven did not. I replaced the ignitor, and it does not glow and thus no oven.

** [the ignitor] does not glow **

As described at the Understanding Gas Oven Ignition Systems page for that symptom:

If the ignitor is NOT glowing at all:

Does the oven ignitor have continuity? (it probably does if it is new)

Does the oven gas valve have continuity?

Is the electronic control (see the following link) providing power to the oven ignition components?

There shouldn't usually be anything else in the ignitor circuit that would prevent the ignitor from glowing when the oven is turned on but someone could check the range's wiring diagram to be sure.

I tested the ignitor and got continuity.

I tested the leads that would connect to the ignitor and got nothing.

I have been trying to find a diagram to know the location of the gas valve.

Is there a web page that would have that information?

You tested there for what exactly???

** I have been trying to find a diagram to know the location of the gas valve. **

Follow the tubing from the oven burner and it will lead to it. I don't know exactly where it is mounted but shouldn't usually be far from the burner. You can see what it looks like at the following link:

LINK > www.appliance411.com/data.php?ap=AP2022753

** Is there a web page that would have that information? **

Nothing with photos, no. You can however see exploded parts views for your range model at the following link. I don't know how much they'll help.

I tested the ignitor first for continuity. It passed. Then the two wires connecting to the ignitor, that failed. But my thought it that it is connected to more than one device, the gas valve and the electronic control thing. I found the gas valve and will check it for continuity.

You "tested" there for what? Continuity, voltage??

In either case I don't know what that would achieve.

** I found the gas valve and will check it for continuity. **

Good. If open it is definitely defective.

If both the ignitor and gas valve have continuity and the wiring between them and the control is also good, it may be that the control is just not powering the ignition circuit in which case the control itself may be the problem.

As I sated, there shouldn't usually be any other components in that circuit which would prevent power from getting there if the control is supplying it.
