I just moved my almost new frigidaire electronic ignition gas oven and now the oven won't heat up. The stove top works fine. What's up?

Damaged...Defective and or Burned Out Glow Coil

Hello and Welcome Paul to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliance forum.

It's a good possibility the glow coil got damaged during the moving. A weak coil is even more frail then a new one. Movement of almost any type can cause it to develope a hairline crack, which would cause it to fail to glow.

If the coil doesn't glow, check all the control panel selections and be sure they are set correctly.

If the coil does glow but the burner fails to light, it's possible but not likely, the burners isolation valve got turned off during the handling and moving.

The isolation alve may be located under the top burners cover or in the rear of the stove on or near the aluminum gas tube or appliance regulator valve, that supplies gas to the ovens burner.

Regards & Good Luck

Thanks for the advice. There's no control panel that I can see, and the element doesn't glow. It lit up the first time I turned the oven on a couple of days ago, but there's nothing there now. I suspect that it was weakened or cracked in transit and finally gave out.
