Fuse blows when I plug in my Gibson oven/stove

When I plug in my Gibson stove/oven the fust downstairs blows out it does not matter if I have a 30 amp or 20 amp fuse it sparks at the wall and blows fuse out, I can not see any obvious defects with cord I am wondering if there is a fuse inside the back panel that could be blown?

SOURCE: My Fridgidaire FEF366BCC just popped my breaker

This sounds like a main control problem. More specifically like one of the relays is shorted. You will need to acess the main control and carefully inspect it for any burn marks. If you don't see any disconnect the main power supply wire going to the main control. Then plug it back in if it trips the breaker the problem is in the power cord or wiring from the cord junction to the main control. If it does not trip the breaker the problem is the main control.

Some stoves have an override on the oven side... oven pilot light must be lit or it will go to safe mode. if it is an auto light then check the fuse usually located up by the top left side on bk of stove.

No heat from burners or oven after relocating stove


Hi Ron - From what you have described if neither the burners nor oven turns on make sure the electrical connecting is 240V. The oven light and clock portions only required 115V. The clock and oven light working may indicate an electrical circuit breaker supplying the range is tripped or a fuse is blown. Confirm household circuit is correct and the range cord is properly wired to the terminal block.

Frigidaire stove(smooth top -electric) all of sudden started to beep' constantly w/F1 flashing.Tried to reset - unsuccessful. Unplugged & waited an hour to plug back in & still beeping...


Hello,
The F1 error code means a button on the touchpad is stuck,usually pushing clear/off will clear it. Since you have done that and it returns the touchpad needs to be replaced

We have a 40amp hot wired stove but now we just bought a frigidaire fef366dce with a 50amp. Will the new stove work well if hot wired to the 40amp


Hi,
The new stove may work but you may also blow the breaker/ fuse which ever you have... make sure to leave the 40 amp fuses or breaker in the box as the wiring will not be heavy enough to support a larger amp. fuse or breaker... that will start a fire!
You may find that you just cannot run all of the burners and the oven or broiler at the same time.

Gas stove keeps blowing fuse


Don't need to buy a new stove for that! Just need to track down the fault. It's just a component or a loose wire touching. Have you got inside the control panel yet and looked around?

Ran Self Cleaning - Display went blank & Oven Door stayed locked


You need thermostat limiter #8300802. It is on the back of the stove behind some sheet metal towards the top. With shipping this part is about $39.00. But don't waste your money. If you replace it, it will burn out again! I am currently trying to find a way for either a class action lawsuit or a total recall. Kitchenaid/Whirpool is well aware of this problem. A $1500.00 stove and it won't self clean.
