Question about Frigidaire FGF326AS Gas Kitchen Range

Oven and clock don't work and display simply reads "U"

The other day my oven and clock stopped working and the display reads U. The burners still work fine but I see no pilot light underneath. The unit is only 5 years old and has never given us any trouble. In fact the warranty just came up last month and we did not renew because we have never had an issue. Does anyone know what the "U" stands for and how I can fix this issue. Thank you for your help.

Re: Oven and clock don't work and display simply reads...

Hello Sheridanclan, there was a service flash regarding this problem. The affected models have a serial number beginning with VF121 through VF209. Condition is that the spark module causes RF noise that affects the EOC. The safety circuits built into the EOC (clock) will shut down the display. The EOC needs to have a filter kit installed in the wiring. Part number is 316207400. This may be covered under this service flash, SF 22-723. Check to see if your serial numbers fall under what I posted. If so, call for back. One thing you can try in the meantime is to unplug the range for 30 seconds. See if it comes back to life..

Svd48600w clock out can't turn on oven, or down draft fan

see this causes and fix it: God bless you


If your gas oven is not heating, the igniter is the most likely the cause. This is a simple gas oven repair. To check the igniter, remove the storage drawer and the bottom of the oven (only if you are working on the bake burner). Now turn on the oven and observe, from a distance, the burner that is not heating. In a minute or so the igniter should glow red. If not, unplug power from oven. Then unplug the igniter and using your ohmmeter ,check to see if you have continuity between the two wires going to the igniter. If you don't have continuity, replace the igniter. If you do have continuity the igniter is still the likely problem, If you turned on the oven and the igniter did glow red, the igniter still is most likely the problem. This video will walk you through properly testing an oven igniter. You have to have an amp meter to check for sure, but I would not suggest buying an amp meter just to check this because 99% of the time its going to be the igniter. So I suggest just replacing the igniter. For those of you that already have an amp meter, clamp the amp meter on one of the wires going to the igniter then turn on the oven. If your igniter is round, the amp meter should read 2.6 to 3.0. If you have a flat igniter then the amp meter should read 3.3 to 3.6. If the amps are not in this range, the gas valve will not open to release gas to the igniter. To repair this, replace the igniter.


This is another simple gas oven repair and it's one thing you may need to check before you change any parts. The burner has a lot of small holes that connect the flame all the way around the burner. If one of these small holes is stopped up, the burner will not light properly. To repair this, simply use a large needle or thin wire to clean each hole out. Note that this is not a very common problem but if this does fix your oven, it will save you a lot of money.


If your gas oven is not heating, the gas valve may be your problem. If your igniter isn't bad then the gas valve is the problem. This is a very uncommon failure in most ovens. But this is not a simple gas oven repair and it's best if this is changed by a professional because if the gas valve leaks it can be a major fire hazard and you have to adjust the valve to the kind of gas you are using.

Main Control

This is the last thing to check. If you have no power to the igniter when the oven is turned on the main control is the likely problem. On glowbar style igniters if you have no reading and there is continuity of the igniter replace the main control. On ovens with electronic igniters (these are the ones that click) these ovens have a separate spark control module that sends the power to the igniter. This can be difficult to check but in general if you have no power reaching the igniter the spark module or igniter module (there are many different names for this part) would need replacing.

Electric oven does not work

After a power failure, some models will automatically resume their setting once the power is restored. On models with a clock, you must reset the clock. If the oven was in use, you must reset it by
pressing the CLEAR/OFF pad, setting the clock and resetting any cooking function.

To Set the Clock
The clock must be set to the correct time
of day for the automatic oven timing
functions to work properly. The time of day
cannot be changed during a timed baking
or self-cleaning cycle.
Touch the CLOCK pad twice.
Touch the + or – pads.
If the + or – pads are not touched within
one minute after you touch the CLOCK pad,
the display reverts to the original setting.
If this happens, touch the CLOCK pad and
reenter the time of day.
Touch the START/ON pad until the
time of day shows in the display. This
enters the time and starts the clock.
To check the time of day when the display is
showing other information, simply touch the
CLOCK pad. The time of day shows until another
pad is touched.

If you do not have the owner's use and care manual,
go to this website and get a free download
of your manual by clicking on your model #.
Once you have downloaded it, you can print it up.

Electric range burners and oven element just stopped working. Burner indicator light came on and oven temp setting displays correctly. Clock went into set mode automatically, though. Burner came back on...

check the power behind the stove, the outlet for 220 volts, i just fix one with the same problem, it was getting 110 volts but not the 220 volts. so there was nothing wrong with the stove but with the power source.when the stove indicator lights work and the clock, it means that only 110 volts are coming to the stove.

Oven display won't work

rmedrano, Try pressing and holding the stop-time and cancel pads together for 5 seconds, see if it comes back to life. If not, try the cancel and clock keypads together for 3 seconds. First is the control lock-out funtion and the second is the display blank mode. If these fail to work, you are going to have to test for power at the board. The clock (ERC) has a 3 year warranty incase you have to call for service. back.
