Question about Bosch HGS442UC Gas Kitchen Range
Igniter activates and glows red for minutes. Gas does not turn on to burner. No sign of a t'couple close to igniter to cycle on gas valve. Range top works fine so natural gas connection is good. Only have install & operation manuals. Any advice/guidance is appreciated.
Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.
The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Just repaired my Bosch rangeHGS255UC/02 - would not heat up in bake mode. Replaced the hot surface ignitor. Fairly simple task.

Tips for a great answer:
I appreciate your inquiry, K Ogle!
From what you have described about your Frigidaire range the igniter glows red and the gas turns on but it will not light. It sounds like it could be a faulty burner or igniter and I would recommend having a professional come out to properly assess your range. This does not sound like a simple DIY job. Good luck. -Matt
