Question about Frigidaire FGS366EC stainless steel Gas Kitchen Range
We have a FGS366EC Full Gas Slide-in Range that is about a year old. Recently, the broiler stopped working--it won't light, nor will the coil that glows before the gas flows warm up and turn red. Frigidaire said that this model has had broiler problems and the model was no longer sold, but I've been unable to find other reports of this problem. If it's an isolated incident, I'll have my appliance repair person fix it, but if there's a bigger problem, I'd like to know, and frigidaire isn't very helpful on that point.

check both oven ignitor and broiler by turning the oven first, and time the time that the ignitor takes before the flame lights up, it should not take more then 60 to 70 seconds, and do the same to the broiler.the one that takes the longer passing that mark of the 70 seconds needs replacing it 's not getting hot enough to light the burner on time that's the one that passes gas with out igniting. replace that one.

Don't you regret now to have shoved your old range out the door?
Sorry, it just seems that each time we replace something we end up regretting it.
Your problem is appparently not uncommon and while the model numbers differ, I think you will find the solution in the discussion lined below:
Oven-Broiler ignition problems

Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.
The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.
Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

SOURCE: Gas broiler won't light
Turn off the gas to the range. Place a amp meter on the wire between the ignitor and the broil gas valve. Turn the control to broil. If the amp draw is between 2.5 and 3.0 the gas valve is the problem. This is for round ignitors. If the ignitor is flat,the amp draw should be 2.8 to 3.7.
The control board is the least likely problem.

Testimonial: "Thanks much for the suggestion. I will try it tomorrow and hopefully we can broil again. Good job!"

Hello Chris Collins - Sounds like the range may be experiencing an issue with a communication error with the EOC, wiring failure or the cycling thermostat. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I had the same problem and the first step you should take is to replace the bake ignitor, you most likely to have a weak ignitor. If this doesn´t solve your problem, than your gas valve is failing. Despite the broiler is ok, the gas valve has independent channels for bake and broiler, so it´s possible for one to fail and the other is good. But i believe that changing nthe ignitor will solve it.
