Question about Roper FGP305 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven Doesn't Even turn on

I have a Roper by Wgirlpool about 2 years old and it may take 4 hours before it will turn on once I set it for 350 degrees. It actually doesn't matter what temperature I choose. Sometimes it will come on and sometimes it won't. I never know if I will be able to cook that night until I turn the oven on. it sometimes warms up to about 200 and stays that way, never heating to a cooking temperature. Any ideas?

The oven thermostat controls the oven temp. It is not working and you need a new one.

Oven temp is inconsistent. Sometimes it works but most of the time it doesn't. Yesterday we set it at 350 degrees. Two hours later it only came up to 250 degrees. I've replaced the oven sensor but...


Is this a gas oven? gas ovens rely on ignitor/glowbar ignition. The system uses amp draw to open the gas valve. If the ignitor is off a tad in amp draw then kickin or bangin on the stove sometimes makes that puppy work.

Oven does not get to temp when it says its preheated


More than likely, its your oven thermometer thats taking a half hour to read correctly. The oven is probably getting there sooner. If you had a digital thermometer, the read would come quicker. So save your money,nothing wrong with your stove.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

My oven heats up, but then does not maintain the temp.


If it has a pilot then I would say the thermal couple is bad. If it has a glow type ignitor then the ignitor is bad.

Fridgidaire stove/ove


I have a Frigidaire electric oven model # PLES389ECE. It is two years old. It has maybe 50hrs of use. I had the oven blower motor go out. Then I had a circuit board malfunction.  The repairman discovered that one of the main terminal connections was loose and caused the terminal block to short. Could this have been the problem all along? Also, we are having a problem with the oven coming up to temp. According to the operating manual, set oven temp. lets say for example  350 degrees. Once the oven is preheated to 350 a beep sounds. With my oven the oven is about 60 degrees to low. You have to wait about 10 more minutes. Is this normal with this model? Has anyone else had problems with this model? I also heard that Frigidaire made a bad batch of ranges. Could this be one of them? 
Thanks, Vincent

I have the exact problem. We had the ignitor replaced 2 already and it works for 18 months and stops. Occasionally, it the oven won't even start to heat. I am ready to throw it out.
