Question about Frigidaire FGF376 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

Excessive preheat time, occasional gas smell.

My Frigidaire FGF376 Range has recently started taking an average of 40+ minutes to preheat to 415 degrees, where it used to only take about 15-20. Occasionlly we get a whiff of gas as well, this range is about two or three years old. thanks

    I have the same problem. The oven takes forever to preheat to even 350 degrees (30 plus minutes) and also have a smell of gas. My oven is also about 4 years old.

You could have a gas leak on one of the connections or a leaking safety valve. Mix some dishsoap, (dawn, etc) with water, 50/50. Soak the connections and fittings on the incoming line to the range. If You get bubbles you found the leak. Next find the orfice for the bake burner, take out the drawer and you should see the tube in the center. It will have an opening in the bottom where the orfice goes in. The orfice is brass, spray some soap bubbles on the brass orfice and see if it bubbles, if it does you need a new safety valve. Still no bubbles open the oven and look on the back wall of the cavity for the broil orfice ( if it has a broil burner). Hope that helps

Occasional gas smell


If you have a burner lit and gas build up, strong smell etc., my advice would be to stop using the oven immediately! You no way gas should come out, build up, to the point you smell it, Especially while a burner is lit. Dangerous condition.

KitchenAid gas range superba not reaching/registering right temp.


Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.

Oven takes up to 25 min. to preheat


I would suggest looking at how long before the bake burner ignites. If taking longer than 5 minutes before it ignites, then you are looking at a possible bad ignitor. The ignitors just don't last more than 5 yrs with regular use.
