    Default how long should your oven stay lit?

    I just replaced the igniter on my frigidaire oven fgf337awe, everything seems to be working fine with that, while i was down there checking to make sure the igniter was functioning properly i noticed that after i turn off the oven that the flame stays lit for about 2min after i switch it off. i think the igniter has to reach a certain temperature for the valve to open, does it have to be a certain temp for it to close? it seemed to slowly taper off like the valve was sticking open maybe... is this how it normally works? i never noticed how it functioned before i changed the igniter, and i cant seem to find any information about this anywhere... any help greatly appreciated

    Maybe.
    Two checks.
    1) confirm the 110-120 volts AC disappears immediately when the oven is turned off.
    2) check the current (amps) draw at the same moment.
    3) time the actual amount of time it does stay on after you shut off the oven.
    As long as all the electrical parts check ok, the gas valve may be the suspect.
