Frigidaire oven won't stay lit

I have a model FGF354BGWC Frigidaire stove that is converted for propane. When I turn on the oven, the pre heat light comes on, I press the button, the light above the temp setting comes on, the igniter glows but the oven does not always light. Sometimes it lights then goes out. Sometimes you can hear a barely audiable high pitch squeel just before it lights, and sometimes you can smell propane before it lights. I've been out of work a lot over the past two years, and don't have the money to replace parts hoping to get the right component, or to pay a service tech to come trouble shoot, so I'm hoping someone knows what the problem is and can advise what should be replaced.

    Most of the time it just does not lite, with no smell of gas, so it seems more like a lack of propane.

Hi there,

the hissing sound would be the propane escaping from one of the venturi tubes going into the igniter. check to make sure you don't have any kinks in any of the tubes in your oven.

check out this website for the parts & exploded view of your stove http://www.frigidaire.com/support/ResultsPage.asp?strModel=FGF354BGWC&User=

The pilot light must be lit and stay lit before you will have any propane coming into the oven. This is a safety feature.

Problem gas cooker


Go on line to westing house.com and look up your model, go to the help page and ask for their assistance, gas is not something to fool around with, I suspect it is the orifice that have not been converted to propane, I had a similar problenm with the stove top burners, and the orifices needed to be changed to (converted ) to run on propane gas.Some times manufactures send the converter orfices but most of the time you have to ask for them if you are running on propane, most stoves are set up for natural gas not propane.Most of the time the store clerks don't ask you if you will be running on propane , you have to tell them and the professional who installs the unit needs to install the orifices. Please be careful! If you installed the stove your self, you need to contact a professional installer to correctly adjust these .

Model # fgf347awj propane oven will not pre-heat.


Sounds like gas valve is bad and the thermostat also. I would change the gas valve first. But when you said oven would not lite sure sign the gas valve is bad. New gas valve is about 50ish t-stat could be another 20. I would almost just get another gas stove at a used appliance store for 125 or something like that if unit is very old.
