The pilot lay may not be igniting. Inside the pilot step is a little probe. This probe stays heated to ignite the pilot at the correct time. If the probe is sooted or dirty, it will not let the pilot and ignitor burn properly.
I would use oven cleaner and a wire brush and clean the pilot and the internal ignitor stem.

Gas oven will not heat up when turned on. No gas is being turned on in oven. Lights on display read oven and preheat but it does nothing. Same thing if you turn it to Broil. Tried unplugging for a few...


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.

I have a Frigidaire Gas Range Mdl FGF335CGTF - the top surface burners have gas , but the oven and the broiler do not. The glow plug comes on and I hear the gas - but it does not light.


you may need to clean your fuel rail from soot build up.
there is also a chance that the ignitor is not pulling enough current to light the gas.

Gas smell coming from oven during preheat. once oven is warmed up, smell goes away. I have a Frigidaire FGF366EBC S/N VF6289284.What would cause this?


Typically, all gas operated appliances will get a "gas smell" from time to time. What you're really smelling is the odorant (rotten egg smell) that is added into both propane and natural gas, as these gases have no smell by themselves.

The smell will vary from normal to very strong as the "receipe" for how much ordorant is added into either your propane tanks or the gas supplied to your home. Typically, when tanks start getting low, the smell is more concentrated, while with piped natural gas, the smell can be very strong at different times, based on how and when the gas company adds odorant into the main supply lines.

Usually when a gas appliance is first turned on, the smell can be rather strong, until the gas ignites. So long as your oven is lighting properly, there is nothing to worry about.

However, if you're hearing a rather loud "whoosh" sound as the oven lights, it could be that your ignitor is getting weak and might need to be replaced. If you've got a weak ignitor, it could be allowing a little bit too much gas to build up in the oven compartment before it lights, hence the reason you're smelling the gas.

You can check for a weak ignitor by simply watching the oven when you start it, if the gas lights quickly, once the ignitor is glowing brightly and you've heard the "click" of the gas valve opening (in the oven), then everything is fine.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Gas build up


Definitely the ignitor. Change the bake ignitor and all should be well. Good luck.

My gas frigidaire oven is working, but the top


Hi,

It sounds like you have a faulty solenoid on your FSD (Flame Safeguard Device) This should,when working correctly, allow a small amount of gas through to the burner, if faulty no gas will come through despite being turned on at the control.

It's quite a fiddly job and i would highly recommend a 'Gas Safe' engineer take a look at it for you.

I hope this helps.

Frigidaire Gas Oven


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!

Oven not lighting


Sounds like the ignitor in the oven is weak and not building up enough resistance to the gas valve to allow gas to the burner. I would replace the ignitor if it is more than 3 or 4 yrs. old.
