How to turn on a pilot for a Frigidaire gas stove
- Open the oven door.
- Carefully lift the bottom of the oven so that the light becomes visible.
- Light the match and hold it against the pilot hole.
- Turn on the oven by pressing and turning the oven button to make sure the light detects gas.
Find and turn on the night light: Often labeled as a night light, it can be a small hole in the bottom of the stove, in the center of the bezel near the door or in a back corner. If you can’t see it in the oven, it could be in the back of the cooking space.
To light the stove flame, press and hold the stove control button while lighting the pilot flame with a match. If the oven control is on, press and hold the oven control button for another minute before releasing it. Replace the bottom of the oven, the racks and the oven door. No modification is required for natural gas.
Most gas chambers and newer ovens do not have indicator lights. Instead, the gas is ignited by an electric ignition system. In this type of system, an element heats up and lights up like a light bulb filament when an electric current flows through it. The heat from the filament ignites the gas.
Your Frigidaire gas stove model FGF337AWA and Whirlpool gas dryer model LGR764 * EQ2 do not have an indicator light. Both devices have an electronic ignition system.
Turn on the night light. Press and hold the oven button and turn it to the on position. Press the oven button with one hand so that it can be turned and keep it pressed until the light comes on. Turn to the left of the power symbol or the first temperature setting.
Hold a lit match against the burner, then turn the knob to the down position. Be very careful when lighting the burners in this way. The stove in your gas chamber is lit with an electric ignition, so there is no need for indicator lights. Gas stoves manufactured in 1990 and later cannot be turned on without turning on the power.
You can manually light virtually any modern gas stove with a match or lighter, even if the ignition is broken. Matches are safer and work better than regular lighters. Set the gas to medium level.
- Check the temperature control on the oven and make sure it is in the off position.
- If you have one, refer to the instruction manual to find the light.
- Open the grill door if you cannot find the guide hole in the oven.
- Light a long match.
- Remove the hand and adjust immediately.
Gas stoves do not explode. However, if you allow the gas to build up in the furnace and then try to ignite it, the gas will explode. Prevention is easy. Light the match and hold it against the stove while you light the gas.
Turn the valve to pilot. Next to the valve you will see a small button labeled Reset. Press this button while applying the lit match or butane lighter to the pilot valve. Hold the flame until the igniter ignites, then release the button.
If you smell gas and no stove is on, evacuate the house as soon as possible and call 112. Then call your natural gas supplier (your instrument). Note: One tool does not produce propane. Another situation where you can smell gas is if you accidentally get out of the oven.
If the stove has an igniter, you will see a gas pipe which may have a small blue flame on the end. However, if your oven has a glow plug, you will see an isolated electronic device in the center of the burner.
When the indicator goes out, the thermocouple is cooling rapidly. Stops the production of electricity and the valve closes. To turn the light back on, press a button that manually opens the measured value. Then turn on the indicator light and wait for the thermocouple to warm up (about 30 seconds).
At the same time, it will burn the gas check light and prevent toxic fumes from entering the house. Some pilot lights have an automatic shut-off when the flame goes out, but not all of them do, so every pilot in the house should be checked regularly to make sure they are still on.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer has also classified hot steam as a carcinogen. Today, researchers from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim compared cooking methods with gas and electricity and found that the gas produces more carcinogenic smoke.
