My oven takes forever to heat up if it does at all


If it's a gas range and you can see the ignitor glow, but there is no flame within 90 seconds after you turned the oven on - replace ignitor.

Large oven is not heating properly.


Had same issue - replaced the ceramic ignitors and most of my problem was solved. Apparently ignitors require replacement every 3-5 years. When they start to go it takes forever for your oven to heat up ... they don't glow properly causes the gas valve stays partially closed - ie hence less flame/heat. It may also significantly increase the amount of time it takes for the burner to light at all - essentially for the same reason.

On my oven the other issue was the burner itself ... it had corroded somewhat so the flame didn't automatically 'move' around to the other side of the burner. I removed the burner & cleaned the surface with a brass brush - problem soved. So essentially I had two issues - burner requiring maintenance & replacment of the ignitors.

As an aside I'm no expert - just relaying my experience.

My maytag mgr5770bdb gas range takes forever to heat up and the burner goes from a hi flame to a low flame.


It is very possible that the oven ignitor is getting weak and not pulling the required amount of amps/current through it any longer to allow the gas safety valve to open completely/properly.
You will need to find someone with an amp probe of some kind and verify that you have between 3.3-3.6 amps thru the ignitor circuit. If it is below that threshold replace the ignitor. If it is within that range or above replace the gas safety valve..
best of luck, have fun,

I have a frigidaire gas stove model #FGF337AWJ.


I went through that once and believe it or not it was the ignitor. Instead of a thermocouple these new ovens use the amount of current going through the ignitor to prove the flame. Seems like after it gets ot a certain temperature the amps drop off enough to cut out the flame and then it will try to recycle. If it is not that it would be the thermostat but they very seldom go bad. I would reolace the ignitor first I think it will solve your problem.

No flame in oven


How does it warm if there is no flame? The only thing is that it maybe catching on the first ignition but not the second and third which is why it warms but does not heat further. May need a new ignitor. I think there are 2 in this range. 2 bake ignitors could run about 500 - 600 depending. 300 - $400 for 1 ignitor. Good luck.

Changing to LP ... Oven flames very hi during pre heat


Convert the gas regulator to LP. Then adjust all burner orifice outlets clockwise until the correct flame height is achieved.

We have Frigidaire electric range ovan and we don't get heat in ovan, please advice.


You need to open the oven and look at the heating elements. Pull them out and check them with a ohm meter. That will tell you if the element is open or bad. i hope this was helpfull. Sawdust
