Question about Frigidaire GLGF386DC Stainless Steel Gas Kitchen Range
When the oven tries to light the element stays lite a long time. when it finally lites, there is a flsh fire in the oven, and the house fills with gas odor. i took the panels off to get to the burner, and tried turning on the oven, and it lit fine, put the panels back on and same problem. help
You only have voltage coming in on one leg of the 240 line. Either the terminal block connectors are loose or burned or you need to check the circuit breaker in the house and reset it. It is also possible that one of the wires burned off in the back of the unit between the terminal block and the clock.

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.
I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.
Hope this helps.

If it has 120 volts to the EOC, with a good line and nuetral, and it won't show the clock or turn the oven on it has to be replaced. Frigidaire doesn't offer repair parts for the EOC.

Even though the ignitor glows it does not mean that it is working...sounds crazy but it is true... the ignitor needs to pull a certain amperage to let the gas valve open and as they get older they stop pulling enough current...

Typically the issue here is a weak glow bar (hot surface ignitor). When they weaken they open the gas valve slowly and it takes a bit for the ignitor to light up the oven burner.
It is a safe bet that you need to replace it.
