    Model is Frigidaire FGF368MXASA gas oven

  • gpug Jul 27, 2008

    Frigidaire Model #FGF368MXASA, which was posted in the original question. Again, the question is: stove top and broiler work. The glow bar lights up but no sound of gas and oven won't light.

    Frigidaire Model #FGF368MXASA gas oven. The stove top works and the broiler works. The oven won't go on. The glow bar is lit, but there is no sound of gas coming out. Previously the oven would go on, but would not stay on. Now it won't go on at all.

First of all on oter posts i see people are telling you to go and get a circuit tester by the way people this is a gas range and most of all the tester will do nothing except cost money . now if you are not familar with a gas appliance be very careful . i tend to think that you will have a thermocouple that needs to be replaced this is a long copper tube that runs from the oven controll knob to the oven area real close to the pilot flame or the ignighter it tells the thermostat controll that there is a source to ignite the gas the thermocouple usually can be replaced for cheap 25.00 or less it rund from the controll valve to the inside of the oven .take a look small copper bulb with a thin copper tube . turn off the gas to the oven and remove the thermocouple take it to local appliance store and purchase a new one install it and turn on the gas and fire up oven . good luck and work safe with gas its dangerous ok
set me up with a fixya solution thank you

Hi,

you can check the solenoid valve of te oven if there is presence of voltage, if there is then the problem is the valve but if there is none, then it could be the thermostat or the power from where you are pluging the oven, pls check the power supply, it could have tripped off at the circuit breaker...

i hope i was able to fix ur problem,

drcool

tnx, pls rate me...

    Try to test the ignitor ..

    Theres Couple of ways....first do a visual inspection and look for cracks.
    Second you can do a continuity test of the igniter, and the one I like
    to do is...Go to Home Depot, purchase a circuit tester that tests
    voltage through wires (costs less than 20.00 bucks) leave the igniter
    plugged in and turn on your oven. Take the tester and place it against
    the wires on the igniter and if the tester starts beeping that means
    your igniter is getting power and therefore if the igniter does not
    glow, replace it...Thank you.....

Bottom oven does not start


I HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM THIS WEEK. MY REPAIRMAN TOLD ME THE GLOW BAR IGNITOR ARE BAD TO GO BAD. EVEN IF IT STILL GLOWS IT PROBABLY ISN'T PUTTING OUT ENOUGH GLOW TO OPEN UP THE SAFETY GAS VALVE. I THOUGHT MY PILOT LIGHT MIGHT BE OUT, BUT THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE ONE FOR THE OVEN/BROILER IN THE BOTTOM OF STOVE, BUT IT DID HAVE ONE FOR THE TOP BURNERS.
YOU CAN WATCH SOME YOU TUBE VIDEOS OF HOW TO FIX THE GLOW BAR IGNITOR FOR THE OVEN AND LEARN MORE--HOPE THIS HELPS..

Gas burners on top of stove work but broiler & oven do not heat up.


Hello'
Does your model have an electronic ignition? If so open broiler drawer ,turn on oven and look for bright orange glow. May take a few seconds.If it glows but no or poor flame .replace oven igniter.If no glow at all , check for voltage at igniter when switched on to see if it may be oven thermostat . Get a tech to test if not sure.All easy to fix.



Hope this helps

When you turn the temp knob the light will come on the panel but the oven will not light. Stove works fine. We have had this unit for 12 years. Thanks Bob.....


can you hear gas coming in when you turn the know to "ligth" if not the you may have either a bad gas valve or the safety feature has detected something wrong, and has shut the gas off to the oven. first determine if you do indeed have gas., how does the oven light, is it pilot lit, or does it have a glow plug, if its pilot lit, make sure the pilot is running. if its a glow plug, you should be able to see it glow when you turn the oven on, if its not glowing it has to be replaced (or maybe the wiring has gone bad). either way that's where to start.

GE gas oven--Spectra--the oven does not heat--the broiler works, however


Most common problem is the glow bar ignitor. Lift off the bottom panel of the oven and remove. (Some have two screws holding the panel at the back of the panel.) Turn the oven on and see if the glow bar glows.
Even if the glow bar glows doesn't mean that it is working 100%. An amp probe is need to see if the glow bar is drawing the proper amperage to allow the gas valve to open allowing gas to come to the burner. The glow bar should draw about 3.5 to3.8 amps. If drawing more or less than this, replace the glow bar ignitor.
I hope this helps.

Whirlpool Accubake Super Capacity 465 gas range. Oven won't light


Some gas ranges may take 10 or so minutes to light.
Other than that you may have a defective glow bar ignitor.
If it glows and does not light the reistance in the ignitior has failed.

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.

Hotpoint oven glowbar not working


My oven glowbar stopped working christmas morning. Yesterday we bought a whirlpool brand (igntr-oven #4342528) because it is twenty something dollars cheaper then GE. My husband installed it today. The only difference is you have to splice the wires (it comes with everthing you need) The first time he put it in it did not work because he had the wires backwards. He switched the wires and now its working fine.
My oven is two years old also.

1 Answer

Gas stove


The JGRP17 (not a full model number) does not have a pilot light. It uses glow bar ignitors. Watch the burner at the top of your oven when you turn on broil. After a short time the glow bar ignitor begins to glow, and a short time after that the broiler burner should ignite. The same thing should happen with the oven burner under the floor of the oven when you attempt to bake. If the igniter does not glow, or glows and burner does not light, replace ignitor. (looks like part # WB2X9154)

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.
