    I'm not sure the ignitor is the problem because I have watched and it glows brightly and is very consistent all the time

    I see this problem quite often, although oyou see it "glowing" its not glowing strong enough( pulling enough amps) to open thesafety valve and releas the gas. indicator(s) of this are,, too long to ignite( gas should ignite within 40-60 seconds after unit is turned on). inconsistant cooking times, as nwellas not being albe to maintain even temp if'when it ever does achieve desired temp, reason forthis is finally after struggling to get o 350 theunit shuts off ( too aintain temp) then when its time to relight its struggles to relight causing loss of temp in oven cavity.. I truely belive that this is your issue, the only other thing affecting oven temp is your thermostat itself, in which case only determines the temp and if this was issue your ove n would merely be off by a certain degree but consistantly off by that same temp no fluctuations..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.

Erratic/slow heating

Hi, It sounds like you need to change the on=ven ignitor. Even tho it glows, it is weak and will not open the gas valve consistantly. It is a very common problem. Please let me know if I can assist you with part# or how to replace the part.
