Hi,

This may sound strange but it is most often the glow plug that is bad. What happens is as the ignitor (glow plug) ages the resistance internally rises, this rise gets to a point where it limits the electrical current just enough that the valve no longer opens.

Fridgiaire range model XFGF3005LWB


the glow plug may be working as in its glowing,but even so they can seem to be working,but if they are weak they can appear o.k. but wont pass enough current to completely open the gas valve and keep it fully open,thats why it sometimes wont light or if they do the flame is wavering or small and you smell gas,just replace the glow plug

Glow plug gets red but oven will not ignite. Broiler ignites but has seperate glow plug.


Check to see if you are getting gas to the oven burner. If it will light with a match then look into adjustment of the flow plug, but if it won't light, then look at the gas valve or switch.

Model number fgb24t3aba the ignitar glows but the gas dosent come on frigidaire. i t lights sometimes.


The problem is usually the igniter not reaching the correct amp draw .When the igniter does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The igniters are inexpensive and easy to replace. This video will walk you thru the correct procedure for testing an oven igniter. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.

Igniter comes on but gas won't light


It should glow almost a bright white. If its just an orange glow then replace the ignitor. Its probably just weak. If its weak it will not allow enough current to flow through it to open the gas valve. Good luck _MJ_

Oven will not light. it is a frigidaire model #


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

  1. Defective thermostat
  2. Defective selector switch
  3. Defective gas safety valve
  4. Defective gas valve coils

MY oven is not working. The burners and broiler do work.This is a gas oven.


If you can see the oven ignitor glowing bright orange when you turn theoven control on to say 350 degrees. (look down at the back bottom of the oven compartment near the back wall of the oven).

If there is no glow, then you have a faulty ignitor. If you can see the ignitor glowing and the owen doesn't light, then it is the thermocouple that controls the flow of gas from gas supply valve that is bad.

You'll need to replace the defective part(s) to get the oven working properly. You can find the parts on the link included along with some pricing at searspartsdirect.com but you can buy parts anywhere you wish.

You'll have to pick which oven version you have as you need one more letter at the end of your model number (it's usually a small printed letter after the larger model number on the label eg: A, B, or C.) so you can look at the parts list to select the correct parts for your oven.

Hope this helps you get cooking again! Best Regards!

Wall oven will not light


Remove the flame spreader panel to access the ignitor.
Place a clamp on amp meter on the ignitor wire and turn the oven on.
If you read less than 2.9 amps, replace the ignitor.
If you read 2.9 to 3.2 amps replace the gas safety valve.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve

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!
