Question about Frigidaire PLCF489AC Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Having problem with Frigidair PLGF389CCB oven will not lite.

Broiler works fine. Oven is giving me a problem. When I set the tempeture the igniter comes on and I could smell gas but the valve will not let the gas flow unless I tap it. If I tap it the gas flows then I tap it again and the gas stops. Also the the igniter stays on the whole time. This is the second igniter I have put in. It sure looks like it is getting brite enough to let the gas flow.

You may need a new gas valve....but i think you should replace the ignitor first. the gasvalve won't open unless the ignitor pulls a certain amp draw to keep it open, since yours is just opening when you hit it, and closing when you hit it again, i believe it is the ignitor

Oven & Broiler quit working on same day.


Yes, I think you have the answer. If you have the knowledge, check the electrical supply side, fuse etc. Check out your user manual in the fault finding section. The oven has a thermo switch that prevents the gas opening if theres no ignition.

Viking pro. gas range/oven leaks when all knobs turned off


check both oven ignitor and broiler by turning the oven first, and time the time that the ignitor takes before the flame lights up, it should not take more then 60 to 70 seconds, and do the same to the broiler.the one that takes the longer passing that mark of the 70 seconds needs replacing it 's not getting hot enough to light the burner on time that's the one that passes gas with out igniting. replace that one.

Oven igniter will not lite


Replace the igniter. Even if it's glowing red hot, it is still likely the problem. Evidently the oven reads the resistance across the heating element, and when it doesn't detect enough resistance, it knows that the igniter is wearing out, thus not getting hot enough, and you're going to have a hard time igniting the gas. So, it won't turn on the gas -- how thoughtful of your oven to keep you from blowing up.

I had the same problem until I read all about it at http://fixitnow.com/wp/2004/09/19/appliance-repair-revelation-troubleshooting-a-gas-oven-that-wont-fire-up/

If you're in a bind and need to use your oven tonight (or you want proof that it's the igniter going bad), you can try stealing the igniter from the broiler and using it to replace the igniter for the main part of the oven. Since most people use the broiler less than the regular "bake" feature of the oven, that igniter lasts longer.
