Customer Question
Hello I have a...

Hello I have a Frigidaire(###) ###-####stove running on LP gas everything has been working fine till no the oven will not light. The heating element glows red but no gas is released the broiler works fine. Any suggestions

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Sorry the model number is ***** and its about eight years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, I have the oven burner exposed right now

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No, everything has been fine till now my wife went to start the oven to start cooking for Christmas and it wouldnt light so I started to trouble shoot it and all I can determine is no gas appears to be released if though the heating element is glowing red

When that happens you need to replace the oven ignitor on the unit. Turn the oven on and then open the door. If the glow ignitor is getting voltage it will glow unless it is broken. Now even though it is glowing bright it is not enough to pull enough current to open the gas valve. They typically have to draw 3.2-3.6 amps for a square style one or 2.2-2.8 amps for a round style one. If they do not draw enough they will never open the gas valve or take a long long time to open them. The ignitors are pretty easy to change out, just 2 screws and two wires to either plug in or splice together. Here is a video to assist. If you are desperate to make it light you can gently (GENTLY) tap on the side of the gas valve when it has been glowing for awhile and often that will make it open just a temporary fix..then get a new ignitor.
