SOURCE: Frigidaire FGF326ASF Oven/Broiler stopped working.

The igniter is replaced, but still not working.That means igniter is good.-------- need to draw at least 3.2 amps or else they won't open the gas valve correctly and it will either crack the valve open, or open and shut the valve several times when it should just be holding open.

either your safety gas valve is bad, or your control board is bad and not sending down 120 volts. You really need a multimeter to determine which one is really at fault. If you check the 2 wires going to the igniter, test each wire to ground and see if you have 120 volts on one of them. If so, then you need to replace the control gas valve because the neutral line isn't making it through the gas valve to complete the circuit for the igniter. If you're not getting 120 volts, you need to replace the control board.

Those are the 3 parts that would stop the igniter from glowing .
1) the igniter itself.
2) The gas valve. 3) the control board. -------- The igniter is already replaced, so other two possibilities needs to be checked and replaced. ----------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Ingnitor glows bright yellow or red but oven doesn't light

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your description,I`d suggest it is the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner that is likely the problem...even though it glows, I'll explain further below.

Here's what you can try to verify if it's indeed the ignitor...if you're mechanically inclined. It'll look like this...


** FIRST unplug the range and turn off the gas to the appliance before attempting any first**

NOTE: Some ranges have an upper broiler the same as the lower (bake) ignitor ( some do some don't ) one could swap the ignitor`s ( very carefully, they are very fragile and don`t like to be handled ) this will allow you to use the bake burner, but it will leave you without the broil function...until you can purchase another.

Here's a helpful link...

This will confirm or dismiss if the ignitor is at fault...99% of the time this is the case. Many people overlook the ignitor, especially if it "glows" since that gives the untrained person the impression it works...that is not the case however. (Ignitor may glow but not have sufficient amperage to open valve, or open the valve slightly, even intermittently...but not hot enough to ignite the gas).

As far as checking them you don't actually need a clamp on (though it is the preferred method) you can also ohm it out to test it as follows...

You should be able to find one at most brick & mortar appliance parts vendors or on-line depot's such as "", "" to name a couple.

You can ask for part number based on the model number for the bake ignitor. The number I use in most applications (it's fairly universal and replaces both long and short ignitors and works in 90% of ranges out there)... is part #12400035.

I would still double check with your model number with the part`s professional`s if you're more comfortable with that.

Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further or if anything is not clear and good luck.

Thank`s for visiting "fixya" for your repair needs. Please take a moment to rate the assistance you received here and a brief testimony is also appreciated.

Hope you can help i have a frigidare 30 in stove 7 years old oven does not go on glow coil is working help thanks andrew

the "glow coil" /ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced , to get a bit techinal for a minute since the ignitor comes on at all that eliminates all other possibilities and the ignitor must draw between 3.2-3.6 amps to open the gas valve it indeed is coming on yet not drawing enough amps(getting hot enough) to open the gas valve.I base my oponion on 30 years plus as a appliance repair technician

The oven wont heat up and the glow plugs are working and the gas is on

Most often the problem is the ignitor is not drawing enough amps to open the safety valve. Without knowing your model # , your valve could be rated 2.5-3.0 amps or 3.2-3.6 amps. If you can access one of the wires on the ignitor , you can read with an ammeter. Proper amperage will be printed on sticker on side of valve. Be sure to replace ignitor with one of proper amperage.

How to test oven igniter


The best way to test the igintor is with an amp meter. Connect a clamp on amp probe to one of wires going to the ignitor (either one is fine) turn the oven on, match the current you get from the amp probe to the rating on the gas valve to see if you have enough current. (typically you need 3.2 amps for most systems).

As ignitors get weak the resistance in them gets higher causing the amp draw to go down.

You can also get 'a feel' for the strength of the ignitor by how bright it glows, when working right, the orange will be bright almost whiteish in color. As it ages and weakens it will be more of a dull orange.

As a rule of thumb, if the ignitor is glowing and the burner will not come on the ignitor is bad.

I hope this helps

Our Frigidaire 24 in wall oven won't light. The igniter glows but there appears to not be any gas present.

The ignitor is weak and needs to be replaced. You can not tell by looking at it. You have to measure the amp draw through the ignitor.

Model fgf334bgwj gas range oven will not operate. I removed the oven bottom plate and deflection plate , the glow bar turns on but no gas flows to ignitor? Is it the gas safety valve?

When the ignitor glows brightly and the oven doesn't light it is usually a defective ignitor. The way to know if the ignitor is good or bad is to read the amp draw of the ignitor with an amp or watt meter. The gas valve and the ignitor are wired in series and for the gas valve to draw the current the ignitor has to draw 3.5-3.8 amps.If the ignitor is drawing 3.5-3.8 amps the new gas valve is defective. If it is drawing less amps the ignitor is defective.

Oven heating element works but gas wil not ignight

the oven ignitor has to consume 3.2 to 3.6 amps in order for the oven valve to open. The valve is a bi-metal valve; which means the proper amount of current must be drawn through the valve to warp the bi-metal and allow gas flow. Oven ignitors will glow bright but only pull around 2.8 amps, not enough to open the valve. In most cases this is the scenario. The only way to determine which is bad(ignitor or valve) is to check the amp draw of the ignitor using a clamp on meter. If the ignitor is flat in appearance it must pull 3.2 to 3.6 amps, if the ignitor is round it must pull 2.5 amps. Being a kenmore stove it could be built by frigidaire or many others for that matter,the model # indicates this, so be sure to check the amp draw if possible.I have seen many Frigidaire oven valves bad.However, 9 times out of 10 the ignitor is bad. If your model begins with 790. its a frigidaire, 362. its a roper/ge, 665. its a whirlpool built, 911. its a roper, etc. hope this helps...
