My frigidair oven model # fgf316dsd Regulator problems

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

Hi

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.
Thank you

HI 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.

I have a Frigidaire gas stove model FGF337BCGL. It makes a groaning sound when I first turn on the stove top also when i turn on the oven. Sometimes it does the groaning 15 min after being turned on. It...


The groaning your hearing is the internal gas regulator. It is nothing to be worried about unless your having problems with the size of the flame whn the oven is in use. The groan is the gas passing under the diaphram and the diaphram is gently vibrating against the regulator mating face. It can be annoying but really nothing to be concerned about. If you really want to rid yourself of the nuisance you can either have the regulator changed (legally) or change it yourself:
The regulator is item 14 this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5151291&diagram_id=1241169#d1241169

My thoughts are as a 35 + year in home repair person is: Unless there is some other problem.. do not be too concerned.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
