Question about Frigidaire FEF316 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Burners overheat The temperature of two burners on my FEF316BSC electric stove goes way past their setting. If I turn the setting to medium, the burner glows bright red, as if I'd turned them to high. Is this something I can fix myself, or should I call someone?

The burner control is failing for each burner. That model takes part #316021500 for the 6" units and part #5303935086 for the 8" unit.
This must be an older range, as Frigidaire lists the 6" switch and no longer in production. You can replace a 6" control with an 8" but not the other way around...

Hope this helps. Please rate my answer if this is the case.

Burners turn on sometimes as does the oven but then may not turn off


Hello, when you turn on one of the burner, can you hear some clicking while you turn on one of the burners? This is an electric ignitor, and when you turn one burner on all the burner ignitor will click.


It is possible, that you are turning your burners on the stove to quick. Take a look at one of knobs and you will see ignition--low---medium---high. To get the burning ignited the knob needs to be position at the ignition site. You'll hear it click-click-click and the burner will ignite.



Now, the oven. The oven ignitor is on a time delay. You will push the bake button and across the screen will say something like this "Please set oven temperature" You'll set the oven temperature to---let say 350 degrees---. Then the screen will say "push start button" then you push the start button to turn your oven on. Now, the screen will say "pre" this means that the oven is pre-heating the oven to your desired temperature. Before all this happens there is ignitor in the oven and it has a heater on the ignitor in oven. This heater will heat up to desired temperature and once it reaches the that temperature the ignitor will ignite and the gas will turn on.



Why--one would say for this procedure. The old kitchen stoves had a very bad habit of of flash over---that is gas will built up in the over and once the pilot light ignited the gas---wussh and it blow the oven door open. These ovens would sometimes huff too.



Therefore, take your time and your biscuit will be OK

I am sorry Sandan2. I didn't finish reading your question. Never mind on what I said here.

If the burners will not shut off sometimes, then there could a gas regulator problem.



One very important question. Is your kitchen stove using Natural Gas or LPG--liquid Petroleum Gas?



If it is using either type of fuel as mention above. It is very important that you contact Appliance repair person that is certified by the state that you live in that he/she is license by the state to work with gas appliances.

I wish you luck, but it very it important that you contact a certified Technician... Also, move the stove away from the wall and look behind it. There a black gas pipe and at the end is a brass valve, Take wrench and turn the gas valve off. The gas valve will have a stainless steel flex line attached to it, and the other end is to your stove. Don't use your stove.



If those gas burners and the oven are leaking gas. There is possibility to blow you and your family with your home up. Don't use the stove, Until you have it check out...please. GB you/your family...stewbison

How many BTU's are in each element of a 1990 model hardwick propane stove?


Hello, it will depend on the size of the burner. If you have two large burners, one medium, and one small burner. It will also depend if you are using NG. Now, with LPG, it would be about 10 % less than natural gas. I am take a guess here, OK. Large burners 5000 BTU's. Medium: 2500 BTU's, and the small maybe 1200 BTU's per hour. Now, most of the burner on newer stove/ranges are set by the industrial standards. GB...stewbison

Replace the switch that controls this burner to get it back under control. This will solve your problem as the switch is what controls the burner temperature regulation.

GE electric stove problems, our stove has 3 small burners and one big burner. When we use the big burner at medium heat it does fine then all of a sudden it starts glowing bright red and burns whatever is...


Replace the infinite heat control switch for that burner. (the burner switch that you turn with the knob to select the temp setting) If you list a full model number (usually behind the lower drawer panel on the frame of the range) I can look up the part number for you. It is not a very difficult repair.

Burner temp.


If set to high, burners should remain on. If set to medium high let's say, they would be on for maybe 70 percent of the time, off for 30 percent of the time. If set to warm, they might be on only 10 percent of the time, off 90 percent. There is a high temp limiter which could turn a burner off. If you have a burner on high and are cooking on that burner and it goes off, the high temp limiter may be faulty. It is an integral part of the burner, and would require replacement of the offending burner. Burners are individually replaceable after lifting up the glass cook top.
