Pilot light for the oven not igniting

We have a GE gas Stove/Oven. The oven is not working. It is not heating up.

After researching on the internet it seems that the reason is the ignition element is not in working order.

The stove top is still working but the pilot light for the oven is out and will not relight.

In most cases the reason the pilot light for the oven not igniting is because the ignition elements are out and need to be replaced.

Who had this issue and can help fix it?

Thank you

They haven't used pilot lights in ovens in many years.
Most ovens use a ceramic igniter that glows bright red to light the gas.

If you post the GE model number for your range I can give you further detailed information.

The XL 44 is just a GE trade name. Look for the ID plate down the bottom if you have a pull out drawer or in the oven doorway.

The owners manual won't help me.

You do have a glow type igniter in your oven. I found the following video to be helpful.

The igniter should be replaced. Do you know the part number of the igniter for XL44?

I found this:

The OEM part number for your igniter is WB2X9154
You can search for that part number and you'll find many places that sell it.

Be careful when installing..... it is a very fragile part and will crack easily if dropped, hit or struck.
