Tip - do not change the safety valve first even if the ignitor seem "ok" if you gently tap the safety valve and the flame comes on initially but fails to come on after awhile after each"tapping" - the ignitor is the most likely culprit

I have a Frigidaire model FGFL87DCE gas range and the oven will not work. It doesn't light and the gas doesn't come on


the first thing to check is the ignitor.turn the oven on and look to see if the ignitor is getting hot if it not you will need to check the power to the ignitor.if there is power to it then you may neeed to replace the ignitor.

If the ignitir is not drawing enough current then it will not open the gas safety valve

Oven won't start


Very interesting. The ignitor is working, so that means you have power and the control is working. The safety valve is working, and you have a complete circuit. So why won' t she fire off? Inside the safety valve is a bi-metal that only opens if the resistance is right. The resistance only changes when the ignitor is on. As it gets hotter it changes in resistance. This allows the gas safety valve to release the gas and ignite. Watch this:

Igniter comes on but gas won't light


It should glow almost a bright white. If its just an orange glow then replace the ignitor. Its probably just weak. If its weak it will not allow enough current to flow through it to open the gas valve. Good luck _MJ_

Oven wont light unless you turn on a stove eye and


Hi,

Sound`s to me you need a new hot surface ignitor. Sorry to hear you may have changed the valve & regulator for nothing, but that happen`s quite often when you get the symptom`s you`ve described, I`ve even seen tech`s. do it. The reality is 9 times out of 10 when a hot surface ignition gas/lpg oven won`t light it is the ignitor.

Pick up part number 74007498 for approx. $40 and you`ll be cooking.

Hope that help`s. If so please take a second and rate the solution I provided here at fixya for you.

Good luck.

Oven burner will not light. Ignitor is orange hot.


When ignitor gets worn it will come on but not get hot enough to open the gas valve. Very rarely the valve fails.

Gas oven does not get hot enough


You probably have a bad ignitor. Oftentimes the ignitor lights but doesn't draw the proper amps (3.2) to open the safety valve. If you have an amp probe you can test that.

Lighting an old Frigidaire gas oven


Sounds as though the pilot light in your oven went out. On the inside of the oven there should be a small hole about the size of a 50cent piece on the floor of the oven. Turn on the gas for the oven, light a matchstick or rolled up piece of paper, stick it into that hole and it should light, monitor the oven for 30 seconds to see if it starts to heat. SAFETY 1st!

Oven won't work


This could be a defective ignitor (glow bar) or gas valve (safety valve). If you gently tap the safety valve and it lights up very likely ingnitor problem

Oven pilot light won't light


Part of the problem was my own ignorance about this particular Kenmore gas oven. It doesn't even have a pilot light. Instead, there is an electric heating element close to the burner which gets so hot that it ignites the gas. It seems that the heating element also doubles as a temperature sensor, so that it opens the gas valve only when the heating element is hot enough to ignite the gas. This heating element, called the "ignitor", no longer gets hot in my oven even though there is 120VAC applied to it when the oven knob is turned on. Therefore, the ignitor is defective. I ordered a new one on-line from "Appliance Parts of America" for $31.50 plus shipping, and this should fix the problem. If it does NOT, I'll add to this post.
