I have a frigidaire range glgf377csb. When I turn on the oven the glow lights up but then you can smell gas for about a minute. Then you can hear it ignite. It takes about 10 minutes for it to preheat.

Frigidaire oven FGB24L2ASA. Igniter glows red, gas turns on, but does not light.


I appreciate your inquiry, K Ogle!

From what you have described about your Frigidaire range the igniter glows red and the gas turns on but it will not light. It sounds like it could be a faulty burner or igniter and I would recommend having a professional come out to properly assess your range. This does not sound like a simple DIY job. Good luck. -Matt

Gas stove When I turn on the oven, I smell gas,


This is more than likely the igniter to be sure you will need to do an amp draw on the igniter. To do this watch the video on troubleshooting a gas oven at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html

I have a frigidaire gas stove model #FGF337AWJ.


I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.

The clock(computer?)broke so I replaced that part it seems to work. I then tried the oven it will not light. The ignition glows red but does not light the gas. I can smell gas. I tried lighting the oven...


Just because an igniter glows, does not necessarily mean it is good. The following link explains:

It sounds like you may have had a couple of problems. The gas smell concerns me though. If an igniter is weak, you shouldn't get any gas flow in the oven. This is a designed safety feature that prevents free flowing gas from filling up the oven cavity without ignition. I would recommend checking your igniter for the proper current and/or replace. The link I provided, lists the steps required. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven won't light on low settings (170), no trace gas smell.


Igniting bar located on the inside of the oven it is a rectangular piece with one or two screws. It is basically a heating element that also controls the gas. Change that ignitor and it should fix it no problem.
