Oven Not Lighting
Question in reguards to a Frigidaire#FGF337AWE, My brother was just givin this unit by a friend(second hand) when we hooked it up yesterday we can not get the oven to fire up. Checked a few things without not really knowing this unit.
-Glow coil lights up pretty good(Stays on) no gas coming through burner.
-Checked saftey valve getting continuaty through it(so assuming still good)
-saftey valve getting voltage when oven is turned on
-Unhood incoming gas tube into back of saftey valve and gas is coming out so I also know valve is getting gas.
Not sure if thermostat probe could be defective and not allow to light, or if coil not getting enough juice?

Very possible a weak GlowBar. Try turning the bake on after the glowbar lights up good tap the safety valve itself with screwdriver or tool. See if the bake lights up or not. Let me know what you get.

Yes, I'm thinking the same thing, your bake igniter glowbar is going bad.

Also is there a certain amount of amperage that I can check and see if the glowbar is dying?
