Common problems with Frigidaire gas cooktop – Troubleshoot and Diagnosis

So here are some of the common problems and how to fix them in your Frigidaire gas cooktop.

Power Connection:

Starting from the very beginning, if your gas stove’s igniter is not working at all then before hassling around, try to check power connection of your gas stove.

Many times you may have observed that your gas cooktop is not igniting up and it may be annoying for you. Well, that could be the reason.

Troubleshoot:

  • Plug your gas cooktop into different power sockets or try testing different switches with a multimeter.
  • Check that the stove is correctly plugged into a working outlet.
  • To power your stove, avoid using extension cables. They are unable to securely transfer the amount of electricity required for the stove to function.

Check Gas Supply:

Frigidaire Cooktops are generally equipped with automatic gas valve which helps its users to turn on or off the gas supply when they feel necessary.

This is to ensure that you do not happen to contract any mishap in future relates to natural gas.

If your Frigidaire’s flames are not proper then you may follow the below mentioned steps for troubleshooting

Troubleshoot:

  • Locate your stove’s gas valve and try to turn it off or on.
  • If you feel/observe that your gas valve is either very loose or very tight then you should get it replaced.

Faulty Igniter:

This is generally the most commonly occurring defect in the gas cooktops and particularly in Frigidaire (from the experience of other and not mine).

As you know, the igniters are responsible to ignite the burners on a cooktop. An igniter is a bridge between electricity and gas, which allows gas into burners by lighting it up through electricity.

If your gas cooktop is not burning even after checking power and gas supply then it may be because of the faulty igniters.

Troubleshooting:

  • Check it with multimeter if you suspect this is the case. Then change the igniter.
  • If problem still prevails, then igniters needs replacing.
