Question about Frigidaire GLGF377 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The clock(computer?)broke so I replaced that part it seems to work. I then tried the oven it will not light. The ignition glows red but does not light the gas. I can smell gas. I tried lighting the oven with a lighter and it lights up but the flame seems low. Any ideas? Frigidaire model:glgf377abs

Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. The following link explains:

It sounds like you may have had a couple of problems. The gas smell concerns me though. If an igniter is weak, you shouldn't get any gas flow in the oven. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling up the oven cavity without ignition. I would recommend checking your igniter for the proper current and/or replace. The link I provided, lists the steps required. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

    Try using the broiler. If the broiler works, but the bake feature does not, you have a weak igniter. Longer ignition times is usually an indication of an igniter that is going bad. Each oven manifold uses a separate igniter. The bake selection tends to wear out faster due to the frequency of use.

Oven does not light. Top ignitor glows red bottom


Since BOTH oven manifolds and surface burners are usually fed from the same source, this is probably the result of failed igniter(s) in the oven. This is assuming that your surface burners are working, or course. If you are trying to light the BAKE manifold, the broiler manifold is used on some model to speed up the pre-heat process. So, you may see the broiler attempt to light as well. If you have tried using only the broiler by itself and it still does not light, you may have a weak igniter on that manifold as well. Double check your symptoms.

If this is a GAS range, as these igniters age from repeated use, they can become weak and longer function. If you are experiencing ignition problems, the following link explains a little theory about how these igniters work and how to replace one:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3575727-replacing_an_oven_igniter_on_a_gas_range


The burner manifolds in the oven each use a glow bar or electrode type igniter with a gas safety valve to ignite. Both oven manifolds are controlled by the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board, which is your clock/timer on the control panel. If the surface burners work, but the oven does not, the problem is usually not a gas related issue. It can be a control board issue, but is usually a weak or failed oven igniter.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also offer helpful exploded view diagrams to help you locate and properly identify the parts you need.

If you have any questions please post back with a complete MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven will not come on


Does your clock work? This sounds like either a lack of voltage to the oven igniter, or a failed spark igniter or both. Your oven igniter is the easiest to check. With broiler door open or the plate above your oven burner removed, turn your oven on and look for a red to white glow near your ovens burner. This is a ceramic glow plug, and it will not allow gas to leave your manifold until the igniter has reached the proper temperature. If there is no glow, then your igniter has failed and needs to be replaced. The spark module that clicks as you turn your burner has obviously either died, or there isn't enough voltage being supplied to allow it to start up. Unplug your 110v wire from the stove and try a hair dryer or other 110v appliance at the wall outlet to determine if you have proper voltage there.

The worst case scenario is that both your oven igniter and spark module have died, which is rare unless you have had a power surge or lightning strike near the power transformer to your house.

The cheapest way to test this is to buy the oven igniter first, since they are far cheaper than the spark module. If the new igniter lights up, then you can be pretty sure it isn't your power outlet, and can safely move on to the spark module.

The way it works is the igniter gets voltage signal from the control and will start to glow. The gas valve for the burner and the igniter are wired on the same circuit. When the igniter starts to glow it takes all the voltage from the circuit. As the igniter increases in temp the resistence changes and the voltage starts to travel to the gas valve. Once the gas valve registers 3 to 4 volts it will open allowing gas to the burner for ignition. The igniter needs to reach approx 2200 degrees for this to happen. So it could be the igniter or the gas valve. The igniter should test approx 500 to 700 ohms with a ohm meter. The gas valve could also be sticking. If the igniter is glowing bright and you tap the gas valve with a wrench and it comes on then the gas valve is sticking and needs replacement(as long as the igniter tests good)...Hope that helps.

The oven won't light. I've took off the ignitor


Hello, The igniter may look like it is in good shape but it could have a hairline crack or it could just be worn. The igniter should glow a brillient yellow that you would find hard to look at...If it is glowing with a hint of orange it needs to be replaced. Igniters are very fragile parts and could last a couple of years or 15 years. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Good Luck!!! Mike

The lower oven ignighter does not glow


I had the same problem and swapped the oven igniter with the broiler igniter and the oven now works. This proved the oven igniter itself was the fault, now I have to replace the broiler igniter with a new one(which is much easier to get to).

FYI: An igniter may glow red and still not allow the oven to work. The igniter has to draw a certain amount of electrical current for the main gas valve to open.

Oven won't light, even with ignitor getting red


If your oven won't bake, check these:

Bake igniter
Other causes
Bake igniter 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:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
