Installing new gas Frigidaire Stove


I have a new Frigidaire, MODEL #PLGFMZ96EC, that was replacing my old gas stove. I hooked it up and am having some problems. The burners work, but don't always ignite properly (takes a while to ignite, but they all will work if you wait long enough). Also, it takes too long to boil water, and sometimes the flame will only light on 1/2 of the burner. It almost seems like the gas flow is too slow.

The broiler works, but I can't get the oven to light at all. I set the temp, but nothing happens.

Although it is a new stove, I purchased it from a person that just never used it. I'm starting to wonder if maybe it was converted to propane or something and I didn't know it.

Any ideas on what steps I should take to get this fixed? Thanks.

Hello infinity1313. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Based upon the problem description only, I would say the gas flow from the natural gas source is restricted. But cannot determine that with the limited information supplied.

Gas supply from supply pipe may be the cause or may not be.

Problem may be appliance is set up for propane but the supply is natural gas. In such cases, appliances set up for wrong fuel types, the fuel mixture is incorrect. Which would create ignition and burner-burning problems like or similar to those described.

If the person from whom the stove was purchased from is still able to be contacted, contact them. Inquire which fuel type they used while stove was installed at their place. The answer to the problem may simply be the fuel used is different from that which you use.
