Question about Frigidaire FGF316 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven does not maintain temp.

It takes the burner 3 to 4 min, to ignite. Once the oven reaches it's set temp it turns off, then does not turn back on to maintain temp. The broiler works normal once burner is light.

It sounds like a thermocouple problem. While using the broiler, you gave the gas set to full and the thermostat is basically out of the loop.

Replaced igniter. Is it suppose to stay on the whole time the gas oven is on?


I assume you are talking about a glow bar type igniter. Yes they stay on as long as the burner is on but will cycle off when the oven reached the set temperature then come on to light the burner again when the oven cools back down to maintain the temperature.

The oven will not stay on. I replaced the ignitor in september. The oven comes to temp but turns on and off.


That's normal operation. As the set temp is reached the burner turns off. When the temp falls below the set temp the burner turns on to compensate.

Ka gas range the glow bar comes on but it takes sometimes 15 to 20 min before gas is supplied to burner in oven and finaly ignites


Hi, 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, if it does light the burner, there may be delayed ignition (pop), 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.

Turn on oven and broiler comes on.


If the broiler burner is the only burner, then it should come on. If there are two burners, chances are the broiler burner comes on to get the oven heated up more quickly. Once near temperature, the other burner maintains temperature.

Check your owner manual to confirm.

GE Spectra XL44 oes not heat to desired setting


The oven sensor ( WB21X5301) is suppose to tell the oven control when to turn on and off to reach and maintain oven temp, but before you go replacing it, try to observe how long it takes from the time you turn the oven on to the time the oven ignites. Ignition should be 30 seconds to about 90 seconds. If it is taking a very long time, replace the igniter (
WB2X9154
). Ignitors get weaker over time, and this should be looked at first, as both parts are not real cheap, so you don't want to just start throwing parts at it. Here is a trick you can try: On the JGBP90 (model you posted under) the broil ignitor is the same part number as the oven ignitor, so if the broiler, which is generally used much less than the oven, is working fine you can interchange the two ignitors to see if that solves your oven temp problem without having to buy a oven temp sensor first.
