Frigidaire smooth cooktop PLEC30S9EC

I have a professional installer put in the unit Sept 25 but I have not used it as up to date, reasons described below... Right after it was installed, one burner would not come on. After warranty service #1, none of the burners came on. Warranty service #2 ordered power supply board to replace. Throughout the whole repair history, our smoke alarm would come on after the unit staying on for a while for testing purpose. The time the alarm triggered varied but the pattern was consistent. I was told that this model is 2006's model. I am deeply concerned that this could be a safety related design flaw. Please advise.

Re: Frigidaire smooth cooktop PLEC30S9EC

I have planned to buy a Frigidaire cooktop but after learning all the complications about 220V and 120V I decided to buy an American-made cooktop instead.

Smalltree, You may want to make sure that they have 220 wired to the cooktop. I've seen a lot of new construction where they are hooking the cooktops up to 120V and wondering why they're not working. Check this first and post back..Catriver.

Burner won't turn off. stays in simmer mode

Good Afternoon Judy, thanks for your post!
From what you have described the burner on your Frigidaire cooktop will not shut down and continues to run in simmer mode. I would suggest performing a reset on your cooktop and you can do that by disconnecting power from your cooktop for at least ten minutes. If that does not help alleviate your situation you may need to have a burner switch or control panel replaced and that is not a simple DIY job. If any electrical components need to be replaced I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs to be completed. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful. -OOS

How to unlock the door when not cleaning by itself

Thank you for your post, wilma jones!

I understand that the door on your Frigidaire range is not unlocking. I see that you have attempted several troubleshooting steps and the door is still locked. From what you have described it sounds like a possible faulty door switch or wiring harness. I would recommend having a professional technician out to properly diagnosis your range this will help to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

I am having error codes 35 and 75 come up on my induction cooktop

Thank you for your post, friend!
I located that on Electrolux Cooktop error codes "35" and "75" stand for input voltage too low. It could be an issue with your filter board or an issue within the voltages. I would recommend having a professional come out to your cooktop to properly diagnose to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Hello arab125 - I understand that the timer and clock works fine, however from what you have described it sounds like the range could possibly have a wiring failure, faulty sensor, or an issue with the EOC. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately.

Cleaning of stove top

I assume you are talking about a glass smooth top stove. Use any of the liquid polishing type cleaners made for this use. Regular use leaves a build up that makes it easier to clean without streaking.

Frigidaire glass cooktop

first try putting pans on top and see what they do you should not operate these type of eyes with nothing on them as you will burn out the sensors in the eyes if nothing is there to reflect the heat back to them if it does the same thing with pans on them then you will have to replace the elements
