Default Frigidaire oven takes 5 minutes to light
Model Number: FGF337ABA   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When I turn the oven on to any temperature, it takes a minimum of 5 minutes for the gas to light. Sometimes it takes a lot longer. When the bake button is pushed, the glow plug starts glowing immediately. Then I wait.

What do I need to replace?

First make sure no gas is flowing by trying to light with a match.
If that does not work the valve is bad, follow the wires from the glow plug the the valve at the base of the burner.

Is gas flowing to the oven burner before that? Can you smell unignited gas while waiting for ignition??

If gas is NOT flowing to the oven burner once the ignitor is glowing as hot as it can, there could be a problem in the oven gas valve but more likely the ignitor. And yes, an ignitor can glow and still be defective.

The only way to determine which is responsible with any certainty is by testing the amperage draw on the ignitor circuit as described at the following link.

LINK > Understanding Gas Oven Ignition Systems


If gas IS being released into the oven burner and it is just not igniting (which would usually produce a noticeable odor), the ignitor not glowing hot enough or possibly the gas ports nearest the ignitor may be obstructed.
