Re: Fiigidaire gas oven trips power when I turn oven on
Disconnect the wires going to the oven ignitor,turn the unit on see if its trips.if so the ignitor is shorted if not then disconnect the wires that go to the coil of the gas valve and do the same.i think either one of these is your problem.also if theres a fan in the oven do the same.

It could possibly be you are not getting 240 volts to the range. The top igniter may be getting a current back through the other side of the 240 circuit and that is why it works when the oven is turned on but the oven will not be getting power to heat. Have the 240 circuit checked or make sure the circuit breakers are reset correctly.
Check for volts to the new ignitor. The ignitor draws current which opens the gas valve. If it is not glowing it is not drawing power. Test the ignitor,disconnected, with an ohm meter, it should be under 200 ohms.
What you want to check or have checked is if the wiring on the new igniter was accidently not properly insulated and some or the wiring is bare and touching metel shorting the breaker each time the oven is turned on.
This happens when an oven igniter (glow bar) is bad. The igniter must draw enough amps to turn on the gas to ignite the flame. If you have a square shaped igniter use this part#5303935066 If your have a round shaped igniter use part#wb2x9154. These igniter will pretty much work universally for most gas ranges or ovens.
Remove the racks
Take out the screw holding the bottom pan
Remove screws holding manifold where igniter is attached
Remove manifold cut wires about 2in link from igniter and clean leads.
Unscrew and remove igniter
Replace Igniter with new one and fasten onto manifold
Clean wires and screw on ceramic nuts to wires
Tuck wires back and Reinstall all components
Test your new igniter. You might notice it taking a little longer to light up but that is okay. Please let me know if this was helpful by rating me a 4. Thanks so much have a great weekend.
Hi there.. I Just recently had the same problem, also with a diplomat gas oven.. The problem I found was down to a small resetable component under the main cover. .. It took me ages to find the problem and I had taken the whole electical parts of the oven to bits before 'accidentaly' coming across this 'thermal switch' (located inside the main cover, at the top, behind the display module).. - to reset this there is a tiny red button between the connectors.. press this - and it should all be fine again... : One importnat note is that this may be tripping as a consequence of the fan not running or by my thinking not running on after the oven is switched off, leaving the casing to heat up and then trip this switch component.. - if this component is faulty it can be found in RS components or Farnell components.. look for Thermal swich manual reset part no: L100C 9082 470.
The igniter needs to be replaced. I had the exact same thing happen to
my oven. The igniter would glow, but after tested, it did not have
enough amperage to actually ignite the gas, so the gas kept running
with no ignition. You can get a replacement at an appliance parts store. If you have a friend or relative who is a heating/air conditioning repairperson they can test your current igniter. Good luck!
Unplug your power cord from the socket outlet.
remove the back cover where the power cord connection is housed. visually check the connection, expose wire harness might touches the cover somehow. or the cover was dent that causes the bare wire to touched the cover. correct the dent if any, or tighen loose wire.assemble back cover. Reset your circuit breaker to your Stove because the pop sound might trip off your breaker. That should solve the problem.
