Gas range, can't remove bottom oven panel - frigidaire FGFB55ASD
I have a frigidaire crown gas range FGFB55ASD. I'm pretty sure I have a problem with the igniter for the lower burner. However, I cannot get the oven bottom panel out! All it has are two screws in the back, easily removed. You can then tilt the oven bottom up from the back, but the front edge will not disengage from whatever it is hooked on. No matter how I push, pull, pry or yank (note I started with gentle pushing and pulling and progressed to yank as I got more frustrated...lol) at whatever angle, no dice.
Is there some trick to this I'm missing?

It pulls out toward the back or the oven. I usually lift it up as high as I can before yanking on it. If it is stuck, try sliding 2 small screwdrivers in the screw holes for more yanking leverage. As a lats resort, pry it out from the front; you may damage the finish this way. Hope this helps!

This happens when an oven igniter (glow bar) is bad. The igniter must draw enough amps to turn on the gas to ignite the flame. If you have a square shaped igniter use this part#5303935066 If your have a round shaped igniter use part#wb2x9154. These igniter will pretty much work universally for most gas ranges or ovens.
Remove the racks
Take out the screw holding the bottom pan
Remove screws holding manifold where igniter is attached
Remove manifold cut wires about 2in link from igniter and clean leads.
Unscrew and remove igniter
Replace Igniter with new one and fasten onto manifold
Clean wires and screw on ceramic nuts to wires
Tuck wires back and Reinstall all components
Test your new igniter. You might notice it taking a little longer to light up but that is okay.

Thanks so much have a great weekend.
I figured it was the ignitor given the burners work fine and I could smell gas from the oven when I would try to turn it on. So I found a local parts store and bought the replacement ignitor. I cut the wires of the old ignitor close to the ceramic and spliced the new one on with porcelain nuts and voila my oven now works again!
replace the glowbar just because it glowes doesnt mean its good the one you want to replace is the bottom one take the racks out and remove the bottom panel there are two screws remove the then under that will be a flame spreader remove that under that will be the burner bar and ignighter
CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE BAKE ELEMENT. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL OF THE RANGE. SOMETIMES THE TERMINAL WILL BURN OFF OF THE WIRE GOING TO THE ELEMENT. THE WIRE WILL JUST BE HANGING THERE. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE OVEN BEFORE REMOVING BACK PANEL. IF THE WIRE IS BURNT, REPLACE THE TERMINAL AND REATTACH TO THE ELEMENTS TERMINAL. IF THE TERMINAL IS DAMAGED, REPLACE BAKE ELEMENT.
IF THERE IS NO VOLTAGE TO THE ELEMENT, REPLACE CONTROL.
