Question about Frigidare FGB24S5DC Gas Single Oven
When I turn on the oven, the electronic ignition lights and gets very hot, but the gas does not come out and light.
We did not have this problem prior to a power outage that lasted for 15 hours. I dont know if the problem is related.
The most common problem for gas surface burners is that they get gas but don't light. This is generally caused by dirt or grease splatters on the burner itself. Residential-grade range/stove burners are round and have small holes around their perimeter to allow gas to flow out and create a round flame. The gas coming from these holes is often ignited by a small vertical row of holes on the side of the burner. If these vertical holes are clogged or obstructed, the gas can't ignite.
The solution is to clean the burners thoroughly. Use a toothpick to clear the small vertical holes, then allow the burner to dry completely and try lighting it again. If it doesn't light immediately, either repeat the procedure or call a qualified appliance repair technician.

Hi, Even thos the ignitor is getting red, it has gotten weak and can not open the gas valve. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and locate the gas valve and ignitor. This is very common issue with the newer ovens.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
