    Hello renald6969,I think this time you need to call a real service tech. here on our site you can find a local repair company in your area! Sounds Like you had the wrong main board!

    Here is an interesting report I just read!

    Repair or replace?

    When to pull the plug on your old range

    Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
    in the owner's manual.

    Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
    The answer depends mostly on the age of your range,
    how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

    Follow these guidelines:

    When a repair makes sense.

    If your range is under warranty or less than four years old ,
    paying for a repair makes sense.
    Note that ranges under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
    readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

    When a repair might be a wise choice.

    If your ranger is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
    it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
    But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
    given that today's models have added features.
    Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
    are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
    more efficient than those built before 1993.

    When it pays to replace.

    The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new range.
    Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive range
    eight or more years old.

    Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
    of ranges you replace are likely to end up in a landfill.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
    Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
    Thank You, HUUUM

Had power outage & when electric company put new transformer on, stove came on with this error f11 error, when open oven door it mesg goes off & on, oven wont work now

I appreciate your post, Katherine!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire range is displaying an "F11" error code after a power outage. An "F11" error code stands for a shorted keypad. I would suggest performing a reset on your range and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not work you may need to have a professional technician out to provide proper repairs. This will prevent you from any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Oven door lock engaged while NOT in cleaning mode with door open

The question isn't that clear as to what your problem is but try unplugging the stove or turning the power off to the stove at your main fuse/breaker box and then turn it back on. You should then have the oven door unlocked

Oven beeping f1 and f3

Here are the error codes for your range:

F1 Circuit board defective Replace control board F2 1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or
2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked 1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits
2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary F3 Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F4 Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms) Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control F5 Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control) F6 Shorted buttons Check push buttons and dome switches on control F8 Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence) Check door lock switches and wiring

Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
