Question about Frigidaire FGF337 Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
I am having touble with the oven. the element glows bright red so i think it's working but there doesn't seem to be any propane coming through the lines. another expert said it's probably the regulator valve not switched on...where do i find this??
Just because an igniter is glowing does not necessarily mean it is good. Click on the following link for some helpful advice on how to determine if the igniter is working properly:
Now...if you still suspect a gas regulator problem, it is usually located in the back of the range near the bottom. Following the gas lines form the oven manifolds will help you. You may have to remove the back panel or remove the bottom drawer to access. CAUTION: Use care if you have to move the range that you don't stress the gas lines. This can cause gas leaks. On the side of the regulator or gas safety valve is a gas safety switch. Sometimes this switch gets turned off when moving the range. There should be printed instructions on the valve showing what position the switch should be in.
I hope this helps you. If you need further assistance, please let me know.

oven control supplies voltage to the oven igniter/gas valve circuit. When the
oven control is set to Bake, voltage is supplied to the oven igniter which
should glow bright red to almost white hot. Once the igniter comes on and
begins to glow it must pull enough current to cause the gas valve to open so
the burner can ignite from the igniter. I added an image below with the theory
of operation. Click this link:--http://media.fotki.com/1_p,swbbsqrsgstsqkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/wrgtsbrktxwdfwfbgdg/1/1303472/5961857/image5576034710104836299img-or.png
the broiler drawer and then set the oven control to bake and watch to see if
the glow bar igniter glows or not. If it does not glow, the failure could be a
broken Igniter, failed oven control board or gas valve. If the igniter is
glowing red, then it can be possible that gas valve is faulty. To see how
igniter looks. See the fig below:--

Also to confirm, check to see if the igniter is getting 120 volts
when it's turned on. If it gets 120 volts, then your safety gas valve is bad
because it's not letting the neutral go through. Otherwise, if it's NOT getting
120 volts, your control board shorted out and you need a new control board.
But as you mentioned that control board is replaced. So igniter should get 120 volts. If valve is faulty. But if igniter is not glowing then its faulty igniter confirmed.

In most of the cases the igniter is faulty, because gas
valve getting faulty is very rare. But still getting the voltages checked, will
confirm. These will help. Thanks. Helpmech.
