This is a flat style oven igniter used to light the element in a gas range. When the element in this igniter glows white hot, the gas is released from the safety valves, which lights the oven burner. If your range is not heating properly, or not heating at all, it might indicate a problem with this part. If the element in the igniter is only glowing red or orange, or not glowing at all, it will need to be replaced. This is a shorter style igniter. It is 3.72 inches in length, and it features an 18-inch wire lead. This kit includes the igniter, an instruction sheet, a mounting bracket, and the two ceramic wire nuts needed for installation. This part has an amperage range of 3.2 to 3.6. Unplug your appliance before you start any repair work.

Question:

If my oven is taking too long to heat up and i’m hearing a banging noise when it starts up but I can smell the gas is that the igniter?

Bailie
Answer:

Hi Bailey, thanks for the question. It sounds like it is the igniter causing your problem, but you can test it to be sure. First you should remove any covers or shields so you can observe the igniter. The igniter needs to glow white hot to open the gas safety valve. If your element is glowing but won't light the burner after 90 seconds your igniter is too weak to open the gas safety valve and will need to be replaced. If the igniter is not glowing at all you can use a multi-meter to test it for continuity, if there is no continuity that means the igniter needs to be replaced. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions please let us know.

Question:

My oven isn’t turning on and heating up so I tested my igniter and it tested fine and it isn’t visibly damaged but what else could it be?

Lee
Answer:

Hi Lee, I recommend observing the igniter as it tries to light the burner. The igniter will need to be glowing white hot to open the gas safety valve, if it is too weak to do that the burner will not light. If the igniter is glowing but the the burner does not light after 90 seconds this also indicates the igniter is weak and needs to be replaced. I hope this helps, if you have any further questions please let us know.

Question:

I've read about problems caused by a weak igniter. Mine glows bright orange and the element lights, but with about half the normal amount of Flame. This takes close to 90 seconds. Once gas is flowing, i tap the valve housing lightly with my screwdriver, the valve fully opens and there is a normal Flame. Is this a situation where a new igniter will probably fix the problem?

ROCCO for model number FGF374CCSB
Answer:

Hi Rocco, Thank you for your question. It sounds like it could be that part. I would suggest also testing it with a multi meter as well, just to make sure. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I have a 5.0 amp igniter what you think? Work or not

Gonzalo
Answer:

Hi Gonzalo, Thank you for the question. The igniter has to be drawing at least 3 amps for the gas valve to open,so your igniter should be good. Hope this helps!

Question:

The igniter is glowing yellow but the bottom burner will not get hot. The top burners all work. Thoughts?

Marge
Answer:

Hi Marge, the igniter needs to glow white hot to open the gas safety valve, if yours is not getting white hot it is too weak and will need to be replaced. I hope this helps.

Oven wouldn't get hot..smell of gas

Replaced the flat style oven igniter. Turn off gas and unplug oven. Removed the broiler drawer, cut wires, unscrewed oven igniter (using a small/medium adjustable wrench), connected wires, fastened new igniter to bracket, spliced wire, twisted together, plugged oven back in, turned gas on, turned on oven after a few minutes...worked great.

Oven would not light; gas odor

This was a very easy project.
-First, I removed the two bolts holding the old igniter. Second, I clipped the wires then stripped them. Next, I connected the wires with the wire nuts. Finally, I attached the igniter with the old bolts. I plugged it back in, and it worked better than ever. My husband was very impressed that I repaired our stove myself!

Oven would not light

1st took out switch from thermostat unit, located right on the other side of where the temperature knob is located (that controls cooking temp of the oven). Had to lift up range cover to get to the thermostat. Tested this switch with a meter and found it was OK. This made me suspect the igniter, so I ordered one.
To install I first unplugged oven (to prevent getting shocked) then took off the drawer on the bottom compartment (push in on tabs on rails until they release). Then take out two screws holding igniter. Mark wires with tape so you know which one goes to the upper part of the igniter and which one goes to the lower part. Then cut wires as close to the body of the igniter as you can so that you have plenty of wire to work with. Then hold igniter in about the place it will be mounted and mark the wires on the new igniter where you want to cut them. Leave a little extra so you have wire at a length that is easier to work with. Scrape off 3/8 inch of insulation off the end of each wire and connect the wires with wire nuts. Re-mount igniter. Put drawer back in. Plug oven back in and try the oven. I hope it works. Mine did thanks to God. Take care.

There was a glow in the oven but the oven wouldn't heat up

First I removed the two screws that held the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconected the two wires. Take the old element out, and attach the new one. Assemble in reverse order.

Had a problem igniting the gas.

took the old igniter out and swapped the connectors onto the new one. Kept the connectors close to the connector end to prevent them from being to close to the ovens heat.

Oven wouldn't light

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. I made sure I memorized just how the wires would re-connect with the wirenuts. I then re-assembled everything. Be sure to read all the instructions, especially how to properly install wirenuts. I was able to access the wire connections below the oven chamber through the drawer at the bottom of the range. This is an important detail.

Oven would not light

I just sent in a generic description of my problem and a couple of ideas on what it might be. Within 2 days an online repair person answered me back with the solution. I ordered the part and 2 days later I was back in business and baking cookies.

Wouldn't light.

First, I read all the instrutions that came with my replacement part from Parts Select thoroughly (twice) then follewed them like an experienced surgeon. I removed the lower drawr after turning off the gas and unplugging the stove and then took out the bottom panels inside the oven to expose the screws holding the ignitor coil. Removed it, then cnnected the new one to the existing wires as they were in the stove and the drawing in the instructions, then replaced everything in the reverse of them coming apart. Plugged it back in, turned the gas back on and now it,ll bake things again. YEAH!! Parts Select!!!

Oven stopped working

Removed racks. removed two screws in back of bottom shelf of oven.Do not know what type of nut or other fastener was on other end of those screws as they would not tighten when I put them back in. However they are in the holes and the shelf isnt going anywhere.The shelf lifted right out lifting the back up first and sliding out from under lip in front. easy access to igniter use a nut driver for this.In the bottom left corner there was a triangle shape cover that needed removed held by one screw. both wires had clip in style connectors that come right out.Cut these off with plenty of wire to attach to new wires with wire nuts provided with new igniter.Put everything back like the old came off. I used a little electrical tape over wire nuts.Closed oven door and tuned on oven and watched my wife begin to smile as the igniter turned red and oven kicked on.

Christmas day the oven would not ignite. Had to pull out the camper's folding oven for the cheesy potatoes and cook the chicken over an open fire. We had 10 adults and 5 children (6 and under).

The day after Christmas I searched the net reading various reviews, etc. PartSelect seemed to be the easiest site to navigate and offered How To's notes. Wednesday, less than two days later the oven igniter arrived. This was the third igniter in six years. The grandkids watched me intensly as I read the How to's and easily installed the new igniter. Because of the ease with the website and the fast delivery I am keeping PartSelect.com as part of my resources for the home self doer. The cost was competitive saving me over $100.00 doing it myself. Thank you PartSelect. Joe W Cleveland, Ohio.
