GE XL44 gas stove

I'm looking for information on an older GE gas range. I have a GE XL44 gas range that's very basic. It has no electrical igniters and no self cleaning. Basically everything works off of pilot lights. I recently changed from LP to city gas or natural gas. I changed the top burner orifices and they work great but my oven will not light. The pilot is lit and when I turn the dial up the pilot gets a little bigger but even after 1-2 minutes it still will not light. The gas valve for some reason is not opening at all. Any suggestions or ideas???

Welcome to the forums.

If the pilot flame is not large enough then the safety device won't allow the valve to open.

I need a model number of your unit to better advise you.
