Question about Frigidaire FEFB78DC Electric Kitchen Range
We were cleaning behind our Frigidaire electric range the other day, and when we went to move it back, there were sparks and even a little smoke. We left everything alone for a while to make sure nothing was going to catch on fire. Nothing more happened, and there were no more sparks when we tried to slide it back again. Now, all of the burner elements (glass top) and the oven take forever to preheat (over 1 hour to get the oven to 400 degrees).
Elec stoves require 220 volts to heat properly.so because of long heat times on all parts your only getting half the voltage.turn off the power 2 your stove at the breakers before doing anything else.then pull out range and inspect all cord connections.I offten find aburnt cord at the block where cord attaches.If thats all good check your receptcal ,as long as you turned power off theres no danger.you can use a volt meter if unsure.repair or replace parts as needed.all new connections must be tight,you can do it yes we can

Tips for a great answer:
Hello - I would first suggest confirming that the range is plug to the proper voltage (120/240 Volts 40/50 Amp). Was there anything located behind the range before pushing it back? From what you have described it sounds like the control board will need diagnosing. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
