Question about Ovens
One of the burners takes a while to light the oven doesn't heat up, but the broiler works
I don't know about the burner... but the oven needs a safety valve (or the igniter) The safety valve is about $140. some people would rather replace the whole range than pay for the part and the service call.

Jrzy, even though you can see the bake igniter glowing, that doesn't mean it's good. Igniters actually get weak (unlike a light bulb that simply burns out). It's hooked up in series to a safety valve (the valve that allows main gas into the oven) which actually reads the amps flowing through the igniter. If the igniter is weak and the amps are too low, the valve won't open up. Replace your igniter and you'll be cookin' with gas again. Tip---> before you unscrew your old igniter, put a little liquid dish soap on the threads for lubrication. This'll ensure it comes out with no problems.

Turn the breakers off and wait 10 minutes and then on. If this doesn't clear the problem, you'll need an electronic timer module. Electrical spikes cause problems like this.

I have a Frigidaire Model Number GLGF377ASF. The stovetop burners work just fine but the oven and broiler do not work.

Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...
