GE XL44 Gas Range Self clean not working!

11 posts in this topic

I have a GE XL44 Self Cleaning Gas Range.

The self cleaning portion does not work.

Burners and oven do work, and the door does lock.

Timer starts but oven does not heat up.

Let me know where to start!

Thank You!

Yes, The oven does work as mentioned in the original post.

I did replace the oven igniter about two years ago.

Although the door will latch shut it may not be sending the signal to the ERC.

There are 2 micro switches on the door latch mechanism. One N/O and one N/C.

One or both may be defective.

Test these switches for open and closed.

The switches themselves may be good,but the actuator arm on the switches may not be making contact.

Hello Freinds,

Thanks for the replies.

I'm sorry I did not get back to you sooner, I had some PC problems I had to deal with. :verymad:

At any rate I will try to test the switch or switches next week.

But first, How do I get to the switch? :whistling:

I may need that switch! let me know what you want for it.

Actually I found the micro switch at a local app. parts dealer. He had three in stock.

I tested it (bench & installed), and the actuator arm does make contact.

But the 'oven clean' still does not work!

Any other suggestions!

Do you have a wire schematic, possibly in the control panel or remove the drawer and look inside to the left side and up a little...................with one door switch, I would look for another switch that tells the O.C.U. that the door is closed......could be the door light switch.........
