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?

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.

How to preheat oven


Hello, Cristina -

Since you have not stated the make and model of your oven, all I can advise is for you to turn your oven on and set it to the desired temperature and wait for 10 - 15 minutes until the oven comes up to the full heat temperature.

You can read the instructions here, if you wish:

Best wishes.

Convection oven shuts off after a minute when trying to bake. Does this during Compubake also.. Does not preheat


Possibly a bad oven temp sensor. If the uinit doesnt read a temperature it will shut down to prevent a fire or over heating. The temp sensor is a thermister A temperature variable resistor that changes value as the temp changes. so If the main board doesnt get a response within a vertain resistance range it shuts things down. Sometimes since those parts are in the actual cooking area and subject to the heat and steam from cooking they can rust and break, or just get old and break. Or slam the door and break, you get the idea!!

When I preheat the oven it takes an hour to reach 200 degrees. Is this normal? I am sure it was a lot quicker than this.


An hour to go from room temperature to 200 degrees F (or even C for that matter) is unacceptable.

There is a problem with either a control, sensor or heating element. You should have this oven serviced to restore it to proper working order.

My Kenmore Elite oven will take over an hour to preheat to 350 degrees and never does get done preheating.


There's a few things that can cause this.

1. Check to see if the both that Bake and Broil elements (burners) are heating up. Check the Broil element in Broil mode.

- during pre-heat the Broil element gets cycled on and off for short time durations to speed up the heating. If the Bake element is not working, then the oven will heat, but very slowly and never reach high temperature.

2. If the elements are both working, then it's possible that you have a bad temperature sensor.

- this is a temperature dependent resistance device that should measure 1080 ohms at 70 deg F (room temp).

3. If #1 and #2 are ok, then the problem is with your oven clock/control unit. We rebuild these at fixyourboard.com.

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..

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.

15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450


After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

Oven not heating(magic chef


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.
