    Model is ES300 with another number of P/N 316417121 (06/05)
    Does that make sense?

  • yorkbill Sep 26, 2008

    The range was purchased with the new house (already installed). We are not sure where the developer/builder purchased it. It was purchased in the states.

    Model Number: model # FGF366ECC

    Thank you.

    I have had the same problem. My oven is only 7 mos old, model # FGFLMC55GCC. The fumes and smoke from cleaning it set my fire alarm off, the fumes made me sick. The repairman stated that it caught fire under the bottom, there was a small spill that may have went into the vent on each side of the oven.

    Same here I just bought my home about 5 months ago. Builder had picked out appliances...My oven has caught on fire twice & the dishwasher it makes these really weird very loud noises you can't hold a conversation in the kitchen while it runs...I think it will break soon there is a website you may want to check out

    because there is more then just the oven catching on fire read the post sorry to say I think we are screwed unless builder will replace with other

Wecome to fixya,
Huuum at your service.

You said, your self-cleaning oven (Frigidaire) caught fire while cleaning.
Any recalls on this problem? Stove was purchased about one and a half years ago.

Please give me the model number so I may check for recalls!

If you attempted to clean the oven with drippings or heavy food on the bottom of the oven from spills,
then you can have a small fire in the oven .
But it will burn out.
The user guides all tell the reader that if you drip or spill food in the oven to first, "wipe out loose soil to reduce smoke and avoid damage!"

    Where did you purchase it?
    Not in the states?????????
    Unusual model # unless it was from Sears who makes up their own numbers!

    I'm still looking with this number and will get back to you!

    Model Number: model # FGF366ECC
    is a consumer reports best buy and a great range that I sell all day long.
    There was no recall for this and I never heard of the fire in the oven, except if there was a large spill in the oven.Then we need to clean away the stuff first so it will not catch fire while doing the self clean ing for hours!
    Was this the case where the oven caught fire during the self cleaning process?
    The appliances made before 2006 had the old warranty, which was longer and better thatn today.
    Did you call frigidaire and tell them it almost burned down your house????
    This can get some sparks burning under their rears!
    They are pretty good about taking care of their customers with fixes and swaps even after warranty is up!
    tell me the complete story!
    And I have a phone number for "Consumer Affairs" at frigidaire or Electrolux, who owns frigidaire.
    It's Friday 9am hear on the east coast and i'll be at my store at 12 noon and I'll get you the number and or call for you!
    If you give me the serial # and your name and address an tel number.
    I am a dealer and can get them to do more for my customers than the average buyer!

    You know what email me at so you do not have to post your personal stuff on line and with this info I'll try to get them to fix or replace or get you money towards a replacement.
    I would not be surprised it they take the bull by the horns and they give us some results!

If element caught on fire, I would suspect stove needs cleaning. Do that then elements should not smoke for long. (I hope all moisture was removed from stove!!!)

The left rear stove element went on High and would not turn off by controls, why? There was an F550 code that came earlier with the oven?

My range was doing the same thing. I finally called the Consumer Protection Agency and reported it. It launched a national recall. With their help, Frigidaire replaced my range. On Easter 2014, the new one did the same thing. Burner turned on by itself, to 8.5 with knob in the off position. We had to unplug it. Frigidaire once again did not care. I contacted the CPSA again - they are investigating. I will NEVER have another Frigidaire Range. Check your model number against the recall information. Don't trust it! It is a fire hazard.

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,

The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

Electrice oven not working

You are quite correct in saying that a new element will solve the problem.
It is usually located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

Yesterday I heard a loud pop from inside the stove. Frigidaire smooth top professional series just about 5 years old. Looked inside and my parchment paper had caught on fire which had never happned before...

Is this an oven or the cook top?

A blown oven element is possible. You may still be able to bake but the oven will seem to take forever to warm up. An easy check would be to crank the heat up full bore and put your hand near the top then the bottom. You should feel more intense heat the nearer you get to a working element.
