My stove doesn't heat up or the broiler? A repair man says I need a new control panel for $150...he just cost $81 to come down and look at it? Is there anyway to fix a control panel or buy a used one? It is a Frigidaire fef366hsg.

If this is brand new you need to get this taken care of under warranty. Any thing you try to do to repair will void the warranty and with all the electronics on this stove you want warranty to repair. Sorry I wasn't much help but you don't want the warranty voided.
Call the manufacturer and ask them what to do, they can advise you as to what to expect when unit operates and possible cause. Most ranges on broiler will have some heat transfer to top, but this sounds extreme
The problem is caused by a shorted BROIL relay on the Electronic Oven Control board. I have experienced this problem before. The oven will continue to heat because it's being provided a constant power source. You are right to assume the reason for the oven temp error. This is common too.
Here's a TEMPORARY fix you can try:
1. Secure power to the range and remove the back panel from the console.
2. Unplug the BROIL element wires from the EOC and wrap them with electrical tape. It should be marked on the circuit card.
This will leave your broiler out of service, but you should be able to use the bake function. This should only be a TEMPORARY fix. The real fix is to replace the EOC. In the mean time, DO NOT leave the range plugged in while not in use (especially, if you are not going to be home, or while sleeping). This could be a definite fire hazard. If you post back with your model number (located around the oven door, or bottom drawer opening) I can give you an idea of how much the EOC would cost, and give you advice on how to replace it.
