ES300 Frigidaire Flattop Electric Range

The digital control panel is not displaying. There is a constant clicking sound. I was thinking it could be timer but did not set a timer. I tried to clear but it does nothing. I have unplugged. I cannot turn the oven on because the display will not allow me to set the time. None of the buttons for controlling the oven are working. I just bought this stove two weeks ago. The oven was working fine up until today. Do you have any suggestions??

SOURCE: My Frigidaire range display has gone out and the oven doesn't work.

sun, first test is to power the unit down. Find the pair of breakers which are generally 40 or more amperes. Turn them both off and back on. If this doesn't fix it, you will probably need a circuit board.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Smooth Top Range/Oven stopped working

Hello all with this oven not working problem!!! I had this happen and I found exactly what causes this to fail. The circuits operate in the following manner... The oven is controlled by a double pole single throw heavy relay (wired as a single pole single throw or simple off/on relay) that supplies power to 2 other relays.. The oven relay is a double pole double throw relay (6 contacts 12 volt coil, ) it is normally open circuit, that is when the main relay turns on the power goes to the oven relay but no further. The other sie of the oven relay is wired to a second relay connected to the broil element that is normally open circuit with the other side of the DPDT relay going to Leg 2 120 volts. So in normal off mode the broiler is connected to the one side of the relay, common is connected to Leg 2 and the other side of the relay is connected to the other side of the oven relay.
SO when you call for the Bake Oven element, the power goes through the main relay to the oven relay, the oven relay clicks and now connects the oven relay to the set of contacts on the broiler relay that is connected to Leg 2- now the oven turns on. When you ask for broil the oven relay turns off and the broiler relay tirns on connecting the broiler to leg 2 (bypassing the oven relay.
I know its long winded but basically to operate the oven the power goes through 3 relays where the broiler only uses 2 of the relays (not the oven relay) Kinda dumb way to do it I suppose BUT the idea is to never have a situation where the oven and broiler can be on at the same time.
Heres what happened with my oven.. the broiler relay failed (broke internally) and the common contact shorted across both of the other terminals momentarily turning on BOTH elements, the sudden inrush of current literally exploded the output contact on the main relay and vaporizing the lead, trace and solder joint.
It was a mess... badly burned.. I found a new relay (omron) to replace the main relay.. but the other 2 were Omrons that I could not find replacements for (12 volt coils is the issue) So I did find some potter brumfield relays that were rated 10 amps per pole so I wired these externally from the timer board (ran wires to them) (doubled up so each relay was using both sides in parallel so it can handle 20 amps) The elements only use about 8 amps each anyways this worked great and since the new relays are on spade terminals with quick disconnects, are easy to swap out of they fry again (doubtful) Its a forgone conclusion these timers are ready to fry at any time and I can almost guarantee the WILL blow.. the relays arent very heavy duty at all... I would not buy another of these.. pretty weak control.. expecially these small relays.
Good luck in your repair.. a new timer was 300 my repair was 50 and WILL NOT fail like theirs did.
Cheers
Dave

I have an F5 error message..What does this mean....Fridgedaire es300


The failure code list says to replace your Electronic Oven Controll. Contact a Frigidaire parts dealer and check the price and availability.
You will need to give them your make and model number.
Buckle up! It may get expensive!

Where is the fuse panel located in Frigidaire Professional Series Slide in Cooktop range?


I can help , The fuse panel/control board is located behind the digital display in the front of the unit. Some drop in ranges are tricky getting into so be carefull when removing the face , there are screws under the display when opening the oven door look up and there may be a few more on the top side corners reveled when you pull the unit out 12" or so. there is a small glass fuse in the board some of these are not removable so if there is no digital display on your oven and your sure you have 240V to control board you will need to replace the entire control board. Hope this gets you there. Good luck let me know if you have anymore problems.

Slow heating and control panel clicking


I have a similar problem with my Frigidaire FAM156R1A Air conditioner. The unit is stuck on a temp setting and occasionally makes a beeping sound. Repair tech came out and told me the control panel was broken and that this is a common problem. I wrote more detail here: http://www.epinions.com/content_404700761732
