Question and Answers

Q:

Safety Valve FGFB337GCG Frigidaire Gas range

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

I am sorry to hear that the safety valve replacement didn't solve the issue with the burner not igniting in the oven cavity, I know how frustrating that is to have occur.

Safety valves very rarely go out, usually in cases where the gas is not getting to the burner, it's an ignitor issue. The ignitor must glow to a specified temperature before the safety valve will open to release the gas. Even if the ignitor is glowing, it may not be glowing hot enough to allow the safety valve to open and release the gas.

The normal method for verifying this type of failure is to measure the amp draw through the circuit with a clamp-on ammeter as shown in the second image below. (Since you have a square glow bar igniter on your oven, it will need at least 3.2 amps of current draw to open the safety gas valve.) Most people don't have a clamp-on ammeter and it would likely be impractical to buy one just to test this single component (they are fairly expensive). Measuring the amp draw is also a test that should normally be performed a by a service technician.

If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, click here to be directed to the page to set up service. 

If by chance you need a replacement ignitor for the range, I have included a blue link below that you may click on to be directed to the PartsDirect site to view and purchase the part. Hopefully this helps.
