Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good "blue" arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Burner won't ignite. Spark is there gas we can smell, but it doesn't light the burner?This is a six month old Gallary Frigidaire range.


An electric range with gas? The heading must be the wrong model...

Assuming gas, this can be caused by either holes in the burner that jet gas out thru a channel to the sparker being plugged by spill overs or a mis-alignment of the tube like channels.

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

Hello, I have a Frigidaire freestanding crown series gas range that has two problems. The most important being that the oven does not light. The stovetop lights, except one burner that you hav to light...


I figured it was the ignitor given the burners work fine and I could smell gas from the oven when I would try to turn it on. So I found a local parts store and bought the replacement ignitor. I cut the wires of the old ignitor close to the ceramic and spliced the new one on with porcelain nuts and voila my oven now works again!

Frigidaire gas range makes loud whirring sound when oven is set above 250


You don't give a lot of info here (like if the range was converted from natural to LP, or if the burners are OK, or if it is a self clean model and how the broil works, etc) and I can't guess all that, especially because a lot of people post under whatever model pops up when they enter a key word while posting a problem, but,..........
Any range that was professionally installed should have been tested for proper burner and oven operation by the installer before they left. Call the installer back and let them know you are not satisfied.
