Question about Frigidaire FGB24S5A Gas Single Oven
For some reason the 2 stage regulator didn't drop the pressure and I believe the ovens regulator came under extreme pressure. I replace the 2 stage regulator yet when I turn the knobs on for the gas (with the oven unplugged), the pressure is to high. The internal regulator can take what PSI....converting it to 1/2psi ? To replace on look like a lot of work,and $. What are your thoughts
Could I over ride the system with another regulator
A burner doesn't work Heating elements eventually burn out. Sometimes, when an element burns out, you can see that the coil burns in two, or blisters and bubbles.
When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too. Also see the "A burner works only intermittently" section, next.
A burner works only intermittently If one of your burner heating elements works only intermittently, it's probably because of worn or bad contacts in the receptacle that the element plugs into. On most electric ranges, you can remove the element by lifting it up several inches and firmly pulling it away from its attachment (receptacle). Read your owner's manual to learn the correct technique for your range.
If, after removing the element, you see that the ends of the element that were plugged in are pitted, corroded, burned, scarred, or rusted, replace both the element and the receptacle.
I can't adjust the burner temperature If your burner always heats to "high" when it's on--regardless of how you set the burner knob--the switch contacts are shorted closed. Check the circuit for any other grounds, then replace the switch.

One pilot light usually serves all the top burners of a gas range. Some ranges have two pilot lights, one for each side of the range. A correctly adjusted pilot flame is steady and blue, between 1/4 and 1/2 inch high. If the flame goes out repeatedly, or if it's yellow at the tip, it's getting too little air. If there's a space between the flame and the pilot feed tube, it's getting too much air. To correct either condition, turn the pilot adjustment screw on the gas line slightly, as directed by the manufacturer of the range.
Most modern gas ranges use an electronic pilot igniter to start the pilot.
If the pilot flame is properly adjusted, but the flame doesn't ignite the burners, the problem is probably in the flash tubes that run from the pilot to the burners. These tubes may be blocked by spilled food from the burners. If this is the case, turn off the power to the range and clean out the tubes using a short piece of wire. Push the wire through the opening until the tube is clear. You may have to disconnect the tube to clear it. After cleaning the tube, replace it in the same position.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello friend, thank you for your post!
From what you are describing it sounds like a potential issue with your control or pressure regulator within your Frigidaire oven. I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional for further help regarding the oven not lighting due to the gas.
If you need assistance connecting with a professional technician you can visit the manufacture's website for further help. -Matt

Hello Carlos - Does you range have an LP conversion kit installed? If so, I would recommend verifying that unit is set to appropriate fuel and fuel conversion kit is finished. Also trying adjusting the pressure regulator and/or air shutter.

Your problem could be or probably is with the regulator...not enough gas pressure...
