Using amp clamp with the igniter on should 3.2 amps or higher. Change the igniter, even tho it is glowing it is not pulling enough amps. Common problem and will fool you.

My Frigidaire oven and broiler will not turn on my model number is LSEF3019MWB


Hi,

Does the ignitor glow? Its possible your ignitor is too weak to open the gas valve, this is very common in ovens.If you have an amp meter you can verify this by splitting the wire and test for 3.2-3.6 amps needed to open the valve. If the amps are low (below 3.0) replace the ignitor. Good Luck

SET DIGITAL THERMOSTAT TO SAY 350 DEGREES WILL NOT TURN ON OVEN,,, ? IF I SET TO BROIL BROIL WORKS BUT OVEN WILL NOT TURN ON ?


Possibly the ignitor for the main oven burner has failed--

An observation question:

When the Broiler 'lights' and comes on, do you notice the ignitor glowing bright, before the gas valve (to the Broiler) opens, and you get the Broiler lighting---

Now-- for the main burner to come on, -- there has to be a similar bright glow from the MAIN BURNER ignitor, before its main burner gas valve can open-- No Ignitor?-- No ignition, and not Main Oven burner!

Let me know what you need from this point on --

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


Hello,
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...

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Kenmore oven wont work


Hi, The most common issue when the oven doesn't work is the ignitor. You can open the door and remove the floor panel inside the oven. Start the bake and see if the ignotor glows. It probibly will but, that doesn't mean it is ok. It just means the ignitor is getting voltage. When the ignitor is glowing, you can try (BE CAREFULL not to be to close to the buner) and tap on the side of the gas valve with the handle of a screwdriver. If the gas ignites, you will need to change that ignitor.
Again, this is very common.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Frigidaire gas range oven won't come on


the oven ignitor needs replacing, this is the part that makes everything works, it's a glow coil in side the oven, nest to the burner, that is the electronic pilot, when it goes bad the safety valve, the one that sends gas to the oven will not open to light the oven burner.

New igniter, still won't work


Turn on oven. Ignitor should begin to glow. (if no glow after 30 seconds or so, check to make sure you have 120 volts to ignitor) Observe amperage draw using a clamp on amp meter. When amperage reaches 3.2 to 3.6 (for square syle ignitors) the oven safety valve should open, releasing gas and lighting the burner when the gas hits the red hot ignitor. For broiler, just substitute the word broiler for oven. Old ignitors get " weak " and may not draw enough amperage to allow safety valve to open. Also, voltage will affect the amperage draw, as lower voltage = lower amp draw.

When turn oven on GE XL 44 Gas Stove bottom of oven does not get hot. However there is an orange glow coming from bottom of oven under the shield. What do you think it could be? Broiler works fine. Thanks...


The glow that you see is the electronic ignitor. If it is glowing and not getting hot you will need to replace the ignitor. It is not strong enough to open the gas valve. They grow weak over time.
