frigidaire oven??

(1/1)

team s.a. blue:
hello to all!!

I have a gas frigidaire stove.  The top works fine but when i try to lite the oven it just glows bright red but the flame never starts.  Any ideas? Thanks.

Oven ignitor.

JWWebster:
The oven control is working because the ignitor is going. The safety valve has continuity because the ignitor is glowing so that means that the ignitor is weak. It should pull at least 3.5 amps or it will not open the bi-metal flap located deep within the safety valve. Replace the ignitor. Read more:
