    The igniter works, but the oven won't light. I don't hear the gas kick on. The burners work fine on top. Model FGF334BGWF

The igniter needs to be replaced. I had the exact same thing happen to my oven. The igniter would glow, but after tested, it did not have enough amperage to actually ignite the gas, so the gas kept running with no ignition. You can get a replacement at an appliance parts store. If you have a friend or relative who is a heating/air conditioning repairperson they can test your current igniter. Good luck!

The Glow Plug is glowing, but oven will not light up.


Hi,

This may sound strange but it is most often the glow plug that is bad. What happens is as the ignitor (glow plug) ages the resistance internally rises, this rise gets to a point where it limits the electrical current just enough that the valve no longer opens.

Oven will not light. it is a frigidaire model #


When the bake igniter becomes weak or burns out, your oven will not bake. The bake igniter is usually mounted on the oven burner. It's about 1 inch by 4-8 inches (depending on the model), and comes in round or flat styles. If you don't see the igniter glow at all, it's probably burned out. Replace the igniter if found defective. Note: one of the exceptions could be that your oven is set to automatic mode instead of manual. If this is the case, set your oven to manual mode and check again.

If the bake igniter glows red and not bright yellow or white, it is probably because it is too weak. When this happens, the safety valve will not let the gas out into the oven burner. A weak igniter must be replaced.

A faulty igniter is probably the most common cause, however there are others:

  1. Defective thermostat
  2. Defective selector switch
  3. Defective gas safety valve
  4. Defective gas valve coils

Slow oven lighting....bakes for 20 minutes than stops heating


Hi, The oven should ignite within 20 to 30 seconds. The most common problem is that the ignitor gets weak and will not open the gas valve like it should. This would be my first part to change.

Frididaire gas oven won't light


Does the cooktop burners work? if they do then the problem is either the safety valve or the glow plug (even though it glows). Try tapping the safety valve. If the oven lights up change the glow plug.Otherwise change the safety valve

WHY WON'T MY OVEN HEAT UP?


Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
