A few questions first.  How old is your oven?  What is the entire model # that is on the sticker on the oven.  Model # should be somewhere behind the bottom drawer.

We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.

SOURCE: Frigidaire oven -- won't bake, everything else works

had the same problem...99% of the time, if everything else works except for the broil and bake elements, you may have tripped your breaker. shut your power off, and turn it back on. it worked for me!!

Oven won't bake


Sounds like a connection issue to the control panel and the lower portion of the unit. Contact a professional to have the unit diagnosed unless you find the ohm reading to be off for either broil or bake element.

Oven takes forever to preheat


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

Frigidaire stove is about 12 yrs. old. My oven will not heat past 250 degrees and it takes along time to reach that temp. The stove never indicates that the preheat temp. is reached. This just started last...


Hello, welcome to FixYa.

If you can provide the complete model number (usually on inside of door frame or around the bottom door opening), I'll see what I can find for you.

There are many possible scenarios as I hope you can appreciate being this is a global repair site, even within' the Frigidaire brand so I'll need to clarify the make & model before moving forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Model: JDS8850AAS -- Oven won't preheat above 150


Hello,

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

Hope this helps

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

Frigidaire oven -- won't bake, everything else works


Hi, you mentioned the voltage supply appears good, but have you checked the bake element itself for voltage or continuity ? I don't recommend checking ranges while they have power, so you should unplug the unit from the wall. The lower element's (bake) tend to burn out more frequently because they are used more so I'd start by checking it for continuity. Hope that help's. Let me know if you require tips or guidance to check the element and I certainly will try and assist you. **FYI...It should read very little to no resistance with an ohm meter. If it reads infinte, it's time for a new one. Part # 316075104 and retails for about $30.** Thank's for visiting "fixya" amd good luck. Macmarkus :)
