Question about Frigidaire Ovens
SOURCE: Frigidaire Gas Oven
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!

That range does have sealed burners.
Are you sure it has a pilot light and not Electronic ignition?
Where I live , if we call public service they will come out for free and light it for you!
I'm checking that model and I'll get back to you!

SOURCE: oven will not light
gas ranges currently available employ one of 3 basic gas ignition
systems; pilot ignition, hot surface ignition system (which uses a
'glow bar' or 'glow coil' - aka an "ignitor") and a spark ignition
system. The latter two being referred to as "electronic ignition"
systems as they use electricity in one form or another to operate the
oven heating system. Only the pilot ignition system has an actual "pilot" (which is a small but real "flame") which might need manual lighting.
If the surface burners of a range are a spark ignition type, the oven IS one of the possible kinds of electronic ignition systems and thus will not usually have a "pilot" which needs lighting. Be aware though that just because the surface burners might light via a spark doesn't necessarily mean the oven uses the spark type ignition system too.
There is one older style of electronic ignition system which does also use an oven pilot but it is very rare and such a system hasn't been used in oven models since the early to mid 70's. It is the 'constant pilot' *electronic ignition* system
