Re: fridgidaire stove

You probably have a week oven igniter. Unplug unit first!!
Remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader. Igniter is attached to side od burner tube. It removes with 2 screws. Remove drawer to access connections. New igniter will come with wire nuts. Cut wires at old igniter, strip back insulation and connect to new igniter. The 2 wires can go either way. Re-assemble and test.

I have a Whirlpool GS773LXSS gas range. You press bake, it clicks once and doesn't heat up at all. Press Broil, clicks twice and doesn't heat up.

Is the gas turned on to the stove? Is the pilot light lit?
Any special circumstances surrounding this incident? like this stove is new or old. Or you are new to gas stoves etc.

Frigidaire oven will not light

The control panel behind the knobs is the most likely problem.

The heating element rarely fails.

Can't get pilot light to stay lite in oven

make sure the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light this part needs to be heated up by the pilot light to keep gas going to the pilot light. if the thermocouple is positioned above pilot light and it doesn't stay light, replace thermocouple.

When i ignite the oven and let go of it the gas goes out all the time..


It's usually down to carbon clogging the pilot light. This typically happens where gas is on a meter like we have. Everytime the gas runs out, dust and other particles get sucked along into the nozzle where the pilot light is.

The best solution is to try cleaning it. I'd recommend trying to run the vacuum cleaner nozzle over it if you can (with it turned off of course) and perhaps even try cleaning it with a toothbrush (preferably an old one of course as nothing tastes worse than soot) and if this fails, let me know.

Good luck!

Where is the pilotlight on a ge xl44 gas stove I belive it is in the door under the oven well I turned the gas on and stuck a flame down there and nothen took off is there a certian place to put the flame....

In general lets be clear. The OVEN pilot is located under the oven door at the top of the Broiler.It is a small piece of metal just before the GAS safety Valve which acts on temperature so gas won't flow unless Pilot is lit,That's the OVEN PILOT.The stove's RANGE is the top burners where you heat Pots and Pans.It has either 2 Pilot lights that connect the burners to the Flame they are under the Range Top.Newer Models use electronic ignitions no flame.Please note if you had your stove/oven disconected or Gas off when you turn it back on there will be air in the line that needs to escape before you light.This is why in NYC when Utility on steet main the MUST re-light your appliances.Be Careful with Gas.Good Luck.

Pilot light still going out

If this oven has a "stack" (where the hot gases & heat vent to your hood) air could be blowing down the stack affecting the pilot. Simple test, Bic lighter lit at the top of the stack in the middle of the opening. If the flame is being sucked down the stack, then you have air blowing the pilot out. How old is the thermocouple on this unit ? Pilot flame heats this up to send a signal to your main gas valve to open up so the burners light. A weak t-couple could be your problem. Hope this helps

Kenmore gas stove Model 790

It could be that the sensor wire that controls the main gas valve is out of position. It should sit in the pilot light flame.
Look, and adjust if needed.
If it's ok, then you need a replacement main gas safety valve.
This should only be fitted by qualified personnel.
They do give up eventually after years of heating, and fail safe.

Oven is no longer heating

If this is an electric oven you probably need to change the heating element. If it gas check to see if the pilot is lit
