Question about Frigidaire GLGF386DC Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range

Frigidaire Range - Oven does not work

I have a Frigidaire Gallery Professional Series Stainless Steel Gas Range. When I try and operate the oven part of cooker, I have to press the "Bake Temp" button. The word 'bake' comes up on the screen along with 3 dashed lines.

I set the temperature using the temp up and down arows, and it shows me the temparature that I have set (i,e. 360C).

However after about 5 secs, the temp on the display changes to 100C and the work "ON" appears in the display, and the oven does not heat up.

The gas hobs work fine, as do the broil part and the Pre-heat function (which is part of the top of the oven), but the part of the oven where the gas comes out does not work.

It has worked before.

I have taken the bottom baffling off to see if there is anything obvious but I can't see anything.

Please can you help?

Many thanks.

    Thank you TheMobilian.

    The ignitor does not seem to come on and no gas seems to some out. For the boil part of the range cooker, the ignitor seems to glow bright orange, then you can hear the gas start to come out and it ignites.

    For the bottom part the ignitor does not come on at all.

    Do you have any thoughts?

    Many thanks.

    Same issue here but broiler works and range top works. Oven just won't ignite. Is there a separate pilot light for it?

If your ignitor looks real dull orange then that is what is wrong. It needs to be bright as the sun or it is weak.

    If it was me I would check the ignitor. If you dont' want to spend any money just swap out the broil ignitor and the bake. They are the same.

I appreciate your post, Ronald!

From the information you have provided you would like to calibrate the oven temperature on your Frigidaire range. I was unable to locate any instructions on how to perform a calibration on your oven. I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper calibration of your range. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

I have a frigidaire gallery range that is slow to ignite when the oven is turned on and when it does ignite it"s slow in reaching the set temperature. Also there is a smell of gas.

You would definitely want to seek out a professional technician to diagnose the unit. Gas units are very dangerous if you are not use to working on them. You could have a slow gas connection or flow, a faulty valve, or bad ignition. All would absolutely need a professional to diagnose and repair, this is not a typical DIY job.

You like myself have purchased a miracle item....a stainless steel lump of ****. I;ve had mine 4 yrs and cant remember when something wasnt broken. The computer panel with the clock ($155) is normally the main problem and you should probably by two replacements as you will need the other one down the road. I have also had to replace by burner switches. I have a 1945 willys jeep that I spend less time repairing than this ****-o-la. Feel lucky that your burners and oven is actually working..matter of fact you might ought to alert the media so they can run a story on this one. Good luck!

My professional series oven preheats and then stops heating.

HI, there may be some issues within the dual safety gas valves. they mat be malfunctioning. these valves control the gas flow and if the shut prematurely, it will disrupt the heating process. You could also have a sensor issue as well but, im sensing that this abnormal shutdown is being cuased by a fualty Dual oven safety valve assembly.

Please rate and god bless:)
