SOURCE: Having problem with Frigidair PLGF389CCB oven will not lite.

you may need a new gas valve....but i think you should replace the ignitor first. the gasvalve won't open unless the ignitor pulls a certain amp draw to keep it open, since yours is just opening when you hit it, and closing when you hit it again, i believe it is the ignitor

SOURCE: Oven won't light unles you tap on bottom parts.

This might be grit or ash that might have found it's into the burner. When the gas flows into the burner has enough velocity to pick up and carry small debris to the inside of the openings in the burner. When you tap it the debris falls from the holes and gas can flow again. If you are on propane, it is common to have grit in the lines. Natural is less likely to have grit unless you have had construction nearby. Finally, does this system use a flame sense probe? If yes the sense probe might also be dirty and need to be wiped with steel wool (soap free)

you may have a weak ignitor. it is exactly what you are describing for troubles. just replace the bake ignitor and see if that gets you to have heat from the bake burner.
very common problem.

Can get the oven to stay lite


If the oven lights for 4 seconds and shuts off you are experiencing an ignition module safety lockout. First verify that the flame is lighting at the top of the burner and reaching the very bottom venturii tube where the flame sensor is located. If this bottom tube isn't lighting or it takes longer than 4 seconds to light then you have a dirty burner and it needs to be taken out and rinsed. If the bottom tube is lighting and then going out your flame sensor needs to be cleaned, which is easy.

I have a Tappan gas stove that takes forever to heat up (oven) and I smell gas before it starts to heat. Help?


Hello,
Thanks for answering my questions. It sounds to me like your oven's safety valve is going bad. There have been many times when I am at a customer's house and it has been a while since they used the oven, and it seems to take forever to light the oven. Just tapping the oven safety valve with a wrench or handle of a screw driver is all that's needed to open the valve and light the burner. As long as your oven's igniter glow bar is lighting, (glowing orange or sparking), then the oven safety valve is your problem. It is a silver rectangular valve in the far back bottom of the oven with the orifice on top of it and the burner tube coming down over the orifice. Try tapping it and see if that works. Otherwise, just have it replaced. Douglas

No gas to oven


The gas will not go on in the oven unless the ignitor is working as it should.
Remove the bottom panel of the oven so you can see the burner tube. Turn on the oven and watch the ignitor. When the ignitor starts to glow it should get a really bright almost hard to look at glow. If it just turns red then it is not pulling the correct amperage to let the valve know to release the gas.
Replace the ignitor and you should be good to go!

Oven takes up to 15 minutes to light. glow plug does appear to be bright orange immediately after turning oven on. it is a propane unit.


Hi, glow plug (element) should glow red, maybe you got faulty thermocouple, located ot bottom of oven burner, unit where gas enter oven burner, they could either be gas pilot or electrical element as metering device, give a little tap, could be stuck, could also be your thermostat, check oven thermostat, many ways to check oven thermostat, give thermocouple a little tap located at beginning of oven burner, if it didn't work, call a mechnic to make futher checks. good luck.
