Our oven quit working but the broiler and burners still work so we replaced the oven igniter which I thought would solve the problem but the oven still doesn't work. We haven't had any error codes appear on the oven display either. What else should I look for except for a new unit?

I understand that the burners and broiler are working in your Frigidaire range, model# PLGFZ390ECB, but the bake element does not work. I also see that you have replaced the igniter and it is still not working. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why your oven will not come on. Hope this is helpful.
I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).
FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.
My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.
Most ovens, unless they have an electric igniter (does it go tick tick tick when plugged in and turned on? If so, it has an electic ignition.) have a pilot light. In order to keep gas from flowing out, and to prevent a possible explosion when the pilot light has gotten put out, they have an electric thermocouple on them that shuts off the gas when it gets cold. Plug the cord back in, and relight your pilot light by holding the lighter (I recommend a fireplace match or bbq lighter, not a cigarette lighter to prevent singed knuckle hairs!) over the thermocouple for a couple of minutes.
