Oven burner doesn't light

Gas stovetop works, broiler burner lights, electric coil in oven works. Bottom burner in oven became sporatic, now doesn't light. We know only from strong gas smell since oven heats (slowly) from electric coil. Should oven "floor" be removed to inspect igniter? How? Thanks in advance - Happy New Year! Bob

Replaced the ignitor on mine 10 mins ago.... Works like it's brand new. You have to remove the bake pan in the bottom of the stove, remove the drawer, and the sheet metal shield protection the connection. Entire job was 10 mins.

If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.

DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat

This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

I have a Frigidaire Gallery gas oven (electronic digital controls). Neither oven nor broiler is lighting. Stovetop burners light fine.

Have to check if there is power at the oven & broiler first.Maybe a bad thermostat located in back of oven wall.

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.
