gas range oven may prove useful for cooking and baking, they may fail
to ignite if they aren't properly maintained and set up. Lighting a gas
range often involves simply turning a knob; however, blockages from food
particles and debris caught in the burners, improper burner cap
installation and gas supply are common problems that interfere with your
gas range oven's performance. A few troubleshooting guidelines may
solve these problems safely.
Check you have gas in your tank if your gas range oven won't heat. Contact your gas supplier if you've run out of gas.
Clean the burners if you have gas but your burners still
won't ignite. To clean the burners, lift the burner caps
Inspect the small vertical holes on the side of your burners
for dirt, food and debris. The gas won't ignite if they are clogged.
Scrape dirt, debris and food from the vertical holes using a pointy
object such as a toothpick or paperclip.
Reinstall the burner caps properly. If they are tilted or
wobbly, the gas may not ignite. Install the caps on the right burners.
Some burners are smaller than others, so match the caps to the
Move the burner knob to the "Lite" position and wait for the
gas to ignite. If it ignites, rotate the knob to your desired setting.
If it doesn't ignite, contact a qualified appliance technician.
Turn the knob because that's when gas will be coming out but of course you cant see it. Then put a sparkler, lighter, or match right above or near the burner. That should keep it going for now until it gets fixed.
there isn't a pilot in it,it has an electronic spark module in it.what problem are you having?when you turn it to lite it you'll hear a clicking sound,that's the sparking that lites the gas just like you're gas grill.if you want to remove the top you have to remove the two phillips screws out of each burner head,sometimes they don't come out and you have to drill them out,if the burner isn't shutting off the gas valve could be broke or the knob could be broke,if it's clicking just unplug it and you can lite the top burners with a match or bbq clicker to lite them until you get it fixed depending on what problem you are having.if the gas won't shut off by turning the knob you'll have to shut down the gas at the valve that feeds the stove.but like i said if you want to lift the top you have to remove all the screws in the burner heads.hope this helps you out.http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Frigidaire-Parts/Range-Parts/Model-FGF366DCB/1428/0124002?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=FGF366DCB go to this site and you can look up your machine.
On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.
hey mate i have had this problem with my oven, they get moisture in them. Turn it off at the power point for a few hours or before you go to bed and turn it back on the next morning and it should be fine. that should get the moisture out. hope this helps. Keeno in OZ
Unplug the unit, change the igniter maybe it does not draw enough ampage.
or check the gas control knob if somebody mistakenly turned it to off position. the ON position should be inline with the gas pipe.
