I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Stove clock resets to 12:00 when igniters turned on

I have the same problem. This is an intermittent problem, maybe once every 20 to 30 starts the clock goes resets and the appliance beeps just like if unplugged it and then plugged it in again. I’m an electrical engineer and this sounds like the microcontroller that runs the appliance is being reset by noise caused by the spark igniters. This is definitely a design problem. Separating the wiring of the igniters and the control board should help. When I get a chance I’ll have to connected an oscilloscope and look at the noise. The control board microcontroller reset pin probably needs an RC snubber or an isolated ground. If /when I find something more definite, I’ll place another posting.

Top and bottom heating element does not work on Frigidaire electric range ES300


Usually when both elements are not working and everything else is working fine, the problem is your OCU (oven control unit), commonly known to consumers as the clock.
The clock controls the oven and most times does not produce an error code when it fails.
You will need the actual model number from a sticker located on the oven frame when you open the bottom drawer, the sticker will have the model and serial number clearly listed.
Do a Google search for that model number and find the clock.
I've provided a link for what probably is the proper clock but without the full model number I can't say for sure:

Clock works fine, but surface elements do not light up or heat.


it sounds like you are only getting 110 volts to the stove.
have someone that knows a little about your breaker box. check the breakers
you may only need to wire it right or may need to add another breaker.
should be an relatively cheap fix.
good luck remember electricity bites!

If everything checks out fine, and you have no wires grounding out, then the issue is the control or circuit board( same thing).

Stove won't heat


Oven was working, I had it on pre-heat, then I turned on the stove top, but the burners won't heat. When I turn on the stove top the stove makes a short BUZZ noise and the clock area lights up, when the burner is turned off all the lights go out. Please help, food prepared.
Thank You

Frigidaire Smooth Top Range/Oven stopped working


for all others with this problem: I had the stove serviced. Repairman reported a loose wire to the elemets (tightened and did not fix the problem) followed by a stuck relay, and after some banging on the back of the control panel, the elements now work fine. He said if it happened again the only solution would be to replace the relay/control panel, a part of about $160, but I'll get credit for the price of the service call already paid. Compare to the price of the stove, I'll accept the $125 for the service call.

so tapping on the back of the control panel is worth a try if your stove is pulling this trick.

Frigidaire Electric Slide-in Range - Oven Flash


Richard, sounds like you did all the pretests. You'll need a new display panel. When you work on it, be sure to cut the power.
