Hello,

You can calibrate the oven on this model. Press the bake button, adjust the bake temperature up to 550 degrees and then press and hold the bake button until a 0 displays. Now you can adjust the oven temperature up or down to match the display.

Here is a repair manual link that you can use to download frigidaire repair manuals. The one for 30 inch freestanding ranges will have the section on calibrating the oven's electronic control.

Thanks

Yes there is something you can do. you can close the gap in temp by + or - 30degress by pressing and holding the bake button the display will change to 0 and now you can press up or down to what you want to calibrate it to. when set press start. now it's set. If your temp wonders off again you will have to replace the temp sensor. NOTE: SOME MODELS ARE DIFFERENT IN CHANGING THE CALIBRATION REFER TO THE OWNERS MANUAL IF THIS DOESN'T CHANGE YOUR CAL-SETTING

Gas oven doesn't get hot enough


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire oven will not heat to temperature if you set it to 350 degrees. I see that you have to set it to 450 degrees for it to heat up, and then turn it back down to the desired temperature. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power, set the clock and try setting the temperature to 350 degrees. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Our frigidaire range oven is not able to hold temp...if I set it to 350 it may go as high as 550...but it doesn't always rise that high but it never goes to the temp set or stay at it.


Hi

This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control board however, as the issue is only with upper oven it is most likely that the temperature sensor is bad and should be replaced.

My GE Profile electric oven keeps shutting off on me, it shows a "F3" code on the screen. What does this mean?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

your F3 means: Oven temperature sensor open you cannot reset this type of problem.

Check oven temperature sensor, should be ~1100 ohms at room temperature. If too high or low, replace oven temperature sensor

We get F3 when we try to set the temperature on the oven. What does F3 mean?


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Error F3 in your range/oven means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Oven Temperature rises above setting


You may or may not see the error code.
The temp probe is less expensive and is most likely your problem.
If you choose to replace it and the problem remians your ERC will have to be replaced.

Oven Temperature Probe


It could be your ignitor, if weak it might not be good enough to draw ampage.I would suggest to change both ignitor and temp probe to be in a safer side. part number for ignitor is 12872 $56.0+, Part # for your oven temp. sensor 833085, it should not be more than $28. other part from www.repairclinic.com.
