Question about Frigidaire FGF316 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven heat I have read possible solutions to my problem here, but not sure if they apply to me. I can preheat oven for 2 hours, no matter what temp, and still remove the metal racks by hand. I have lit the oven manually, but still only holds a low flame. All of my burners work fine. My confusion is, even with manual lighting, the oven does not heat properly. Any advice?

Re: oven heat

The problem with you oven is the FFD (flame faliure device ) also known as FSD (flame safety device) The way is works is that when an oven is ignited first time the heat from the low level flame heats phail at the end of the calliary tube which in turn increases the pressure within this tube forcing open the FSD valve to open allowing full gas through. when this fails it restricts the amount of gas flowing through it leaving the oven with a small flame. these are easily repalaced but the law says it must be done by a corgi registered engineer for gas safetey reasons...But 110 % that is your fault.

My self cleaning oven will not lock, so I am assuming it is broken. My oven needs to be cleaned. Since you can not use an oven cleaner on it, what can I use to clean it?


Please carefully apply the below instruction to clean up your range

self cleaning solution

  • 1 Remove oven racks and soak them in soapy water
  • 2 Turn on your automatic oven cleaner; this usually entails locking the door and turning the function switch to "clean."

    How do I season the griddle that came with my new gas stove?

    This is taken verbatim from page 11 of my Frigidaire Gallery range:
    "Seasoning, using and caring for the griddle Before first use: -Wash griddle in hot soapy water. Rinse and dry completely. -Apply a thin coat of vegetable oil to the entire surface (front and back of griddle). -Preheat your oven to 350*F. Place the griddle on the upper rack in your oven. -Bake griddle for 1 hour at 350*F, then turn oven OFF and let cool before removing. -The surface may have a tacky feel to it from the seasoning process. If desired, wash the griddle in hot soapy water, rinse well, and dry completely.
    Using the griddle: Remove the center burner grate and carefully replace with the griddle (some models). Preheat the griddle for 5 minutes on medium to medium low setting. Slow preheat ensures even heat distribution during the cooking process. DO NOT preheat the griddle on HI setting. Preheating on HI may warp the griddle and prevent even heat distribution.
    After each use: -To prevent rusting, store in a dry place and keep uncovered. -After each use, clean with a stiff brush and hot water only. -Do not clean griddle in the dishwasher. -Dry immediately and apply a light coating of vegetable oil to griddle before storing.

    Oven temp

    I am experiencing the exact same problem. May try to trouble shoot myself if no one provides assistance on this site. It looks like the problem has to do with either the Sensor, Heating Element or etc..

    Temp on oven is not correct

    Good Evening.

    I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.

    You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

    Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

    Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

    Sure. If your oven would light sometimes, but usually not, or take a very long time to ignite, then replace the oven igniter. Even though it probably is glowing, it needs to draw a specific minimum electrical current (in amps) for the gas safety valve to open and release the gas. Also low voltage can affect how many amps the igniter draws, so that may be a factor, but not as often.

    How old is it? Does it have a pilot light or is it an electronic ignition or coil? If it has a pilot light you probably will need to replace the thermostat.
