Why oven not heating


Bad element, bad switch or other electrical problem. You could double check switch by turning on broiler element to see if that
gets hot. If so then either oven thermostat, or element. Did the circuit breaker pop off and then you reset? So there is a short somewhere, especially if it happens again. The above test with broiler element could verify power to oven. If it pops the
circuit breaker again. You need a service technician. Usually the oven requires a dedicated wire to the oven. Don't use the oven again until the problem is resolved. There's a slim possibility
that the circuit breaker needs to be replaced. How long did you use the oven? If a long time circuit breaker is more likely because
when they begin to fail they get too hot and therefore pop. You will need an electrician to change the circuit breaker if that is the problem.

Oven does not heat


Nothing Works, or the Oven / Range / Stovetop Works Only At Certain Times:

1.Home breaker flipped or the fuse blown?Possibly an electrical surge has flipped the breaker. Check your breaker or fuse box and replace or reset as necessary.
2.Power cord plugged in?Grab the plug and wiggle to determine a good connection.
3.Power cord damage?Damaged rubber with wires showing through or the wire is being pinched can cause issues. Electrical tape is acceptable for covering damaged wires.
4.Aclicking sound could be something wrong with a relay. Check for any loose connections around the main control board on your oven. The click you hear is a relay losing power and switching back on. If the clock resets then something is causing power interruptions to the board.

Have a Frigidare custom imperial double oven, built in, 60-70's. Bottom oven unit went out sometime ago. now my top broiler unit went out. do they still make those units???


I doubt if they still make that model, but the repair parts should be able to be found and ordered. If you can find the equipment id tag on the unit and write down the model number from it, then you can search for the parts.

Most likely you have either switch problems or the heating element and now the broiler element problems.

Broiler won't turn off. Error code F-3


The broiler won't turn off even when you press the "Off/cancel" button? It sounds like the broiler control relay is stuck shut. The F3 code means the oven temperature sensor has failed, this probably happened because the oven got too hot when the broiler was stuck on. There is fail-safe thermal fuse that will blow if the oven gets too hot, so the oven won't melt down but you should leave the unit off so you don't blow the fuse.

To fix the relay, you will have to replace the oven control module. I think this is about $200 and not too hard to replace if you are somewhat handy. The temperature sensor is also serviceable, you can find parts at Appliance Parts Pros on the web. Hopefully you haven't thrown the range out yet, let me know if you need further assistance.

Oven/Broiler fails th heat


Sounds like a bimetal switch is blown. first I would check SWITCH LIMIT BIMETAL next the LIMIT SWITCH-UPPER(LOCK) Too check them first trip the breaker so you don't have power to the oven, then you will have to take the oven out of the wall..next remove the top cover. then in the center-front there are two round bimetal switchs with two wires coming out of them..remove the wires and check them with an ohm meter both should have continuity across them ...if no continuity you have a bad switch. let me know what you find out..
