Question about Frigidaire Ovens
Igniter lights oven wont
If the igniter is lighting it is either the gas control valve is sticking or the igniter is not reaching the 2200 degrees to open the gas valve. What you can try to do is turn on the oven and watch the igniter glow. Then you can use a wrench or screw driver and tap the gas control valve. If the burner igniter comes on then the control valve was sticking. After it comes back on shut off the oven and try turning it on and off again several times. If it comes on and off right away then you may have fixed the problem by loosening debris in the valve. If it does not come back on again then you will need to test the igniter with a fluke meter. It should read at least 500 to 700 ohms. Most places that sell replacement igniters can test it for you. If the igniter is testing goo then the gas control valve is sticking and needs replacement.

When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven would not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.
If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve would not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.
A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:
-- defective thermostat
-- defective selector switch
-- defective gas safety valve
-- defective gas valve coils(This will be the next possible issue if the igniter is functional)
