    Please indicate whether you are using Propane/LP or Natural gas to fire this oven.
    Did the oven ever operate correctly, and if so, has anything changed about it's installation?

    You indicated small explosion, but sometimes you will hear a rumble as the main burner lights. If you can watch the sequence of the lighting process, then we will have a better idea of what is happening.

    You should see the following sequence -

    1) Turn oven on
    2) See the glow plug glow, then a pilot.
    3) After a period of time, say 30-60 seconds, you may hear the gas valve open, then within 5 seconds, the main burner light. If, at this point in the sequence, the burner delays lighting, look to see if the pilot has somehow moved away from the main burner (bent bracket, screw came out, etc.). This is where the type of gas is important, as well as whether this unit is orificed for that specific type of gas.

Frigidaire GLG=F366asd stove igniter problems and solutions . ... on the element lights up the smell of gas is real strong and then it lights and sounds like an explosion.


Where is the problem -- in the oven burner or a stovetop burner?
If something got spilled on a burner ring and clogged the small holes, especially near the igniter, the burner will be slow to light. A stiff wire (small enough to fit) can be used to clean out the holes.

Top burners on Frigidaire gas stove come on but the oven will not.Whats the problem?


This sounds like a weak igniter, it would have to be a gas oven and the symptoms usually are: takes longer than normal to ignite the burner, may or may not smell gas in the oven, does not maintain set temperature or burner does not come on fully, eventually won't heat at all. On gas ovens, a glo igniter is like a light bulb, the more you cook, the faster it wears out. Bottom line, needs to be replaced. Good luck.

I have a frigidaire gas stove model #FGF337AWJ.


I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.

Gas smell, oven not heating up


You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1

It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.

Oven won't light on low settings (170), no trace gas smell.


Igniting bar located on the inside of the oven it is a rectangular piece with one or two screws. It is basically a heating element that also controls the gas. Change that ignitor and it should fix it no problem.

Gas Odor and Oven Heating


The gas valve may be failing. The 'whooshing sound' you hear may be the gas valve closing too slowly when the oven cycles off or the cavity is filling with gas and igniting when the oven cycles on. The gas you smell may be an indication that the valve is not closing completely. This can be potentially dangerous if the oven fills with gas then ignites. I would not operate the stove any longer and shut off the gas to the stove.
