10 year old DCS Oven does ignite. Oven ignitor glows but maybe not enough to trigger LP from being introduced?


just because the ignitor glows it doesn't mean it's good,it takes 3.2 amps for the ignitor to open the gas valve and ignite the flame,usually if the flame doesn't ignite in around 40 seconds the ignitor is bad.also check the burner tube,your model number doesn't come up so i don't know if you have one or two ignitors in this oven but i've found that when the ignitor starts to fail and the customer waits to long to have it looked at the ignitor burns a hole in the tube and then both the ignitor and tube has to be changed,hope this helps and good luck with your oven.

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.

Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,


This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

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.

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.
