Exclamation GE XL44 gas range problems

When using the oven it will heat up to the set temp. but will not kick back on to maintain the set temp. Any ideas of what could be wrong?

Hello mrs-fix-it and Welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and to the Gas Appliances topic.

If the oven will not turn (kick) back on but the HSI (Hot Surface Igniter) glows, the HSI is weak. Glows but not hot enough to ignite gas in an already warm oven.

Replace the HSI as a first attempt to fix it. Should or may resolve the problem.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Cautionary Reminder Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
