SOURCE: element light is on but no heat from the burners

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.

SOURCE: Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on

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.

SOURCE: frigidaire Model fgfl79gsa EOC won't lite up

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.

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire GAS stove. Oven doesn't work.

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...
Check out this tip I wrote about this problem...

SOURCE: Our glow bar lights up when gas oven is turned on,

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.

I have a dual fuel Dacor ERD30 range that will not stay hot. Lately, it will heat up to the desired temperature and beep to indicate it is ready, but then will not hold the temperature. And strangely, if...

Sounds similar to what mine is doing.
Since Dacor uses the gas broiler to preheat the oven, the problem is that the lower heating element isn't getting power.
I took out the element and verified that the element is still good, but no AC voltage coming from the relay board to the element.
Try setting on the Pure Convection mode - it will probably heat up and hold the temp fairly well - that still doesn't do any good if you need to bake something covered (convection modes are useless for covered container..

Most problems with gas ranges have to do with the flame—either it isn't quite right or it's nonexistent. Many new gas ranges have "electronic ignition," a spark igniter that starts the flame as gas flows through the burners f, when you turn on a burner, it fails to spark but you hear sparking at other burners, the igniter or the burner switch probably needs replacement by an appliance repairperson. If your range has a pilot light, be sure the pilot light is lit.

have nice time..!! arte the solution!!

Premier 30 inch gas stove oven does not light

do you hear any clicking when you try to start the oven portion of the range? if not lets try this, open the lower drawer so you can see the burner bar and mechanism for lighting the bake bar. as your watching the mechanism turn on the oven (nothing should happen as per your issue) while oven is on try lighting one of the top burners, any one will do wanna check if that lites the spark and in turn lites the oven pilot.if that does infact work you have a bad spark switch for the oven control

Oven igniter will not lite

Replace the igniter. Even if it's glowing red hot, it is still likely the problem. Evidently the oven reads the resistance across the heating element, and when it doesn't detect enough resistance, it knows that the igniter is wearing out, thus not getting hot enough, and you're going to have a hard time igniting the gas. So, it won't turn on the gas -- how thoughtful of your oven to keep you from blowing up.

I had the same problem until I read all about it at

If you're in a bind and need to use your oven tonight (or you want proof that it's the igniter going bad), you can try stealing the igniter from the broiler and using it to replace the igniter for the main part of the oven. Since most people use the broiler less than the regular "bake" feature of the oven, that igniter lasts longer.

Oven will not light - get F1 code

Your touch pad or control board is bad.
To determine what is bad, disconnect the ribbon strip to the board.
If you receive a code replace the board.
If no code appears, replace the touch pad.
