Frigidaire oven warming light stays on when not using it

Hi waynepaige - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and turn on the oven. Is the warming light still on? An experienced service technician may need to further evaluate this issue if it was not resolved with the power reset. In this case, your unit may possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the EOC (Electronic Oven Control), faulty light switch, or a potential wiring failure.

Could this be a User Interface,Board 316239500 part problem? or a Electronic Control Board part problem?

Normally, the E.O.C. (electronic oven control) only controls power the ehe bake/broil side for the oven. Doesn't control power to the element. If you have already replaced the infinite switch to that eye, the element itself could be faulty. There is a sensor inside the element that is supposed to communicate with the infinite switch to determine the proper cycling temp for what you selected.

Frigidaire Gallery washer motor runs only counterclockwise

Hello there and welcome to fixya
this is due to reverse polarity that is caused by the machines electrical cord has been installed backwards or the plug in on the wall is wired backwards
So what you are going to want to do is first remove the cover that the plug in on the machine and look at the wiring and it should be marked what color or wire goes where IF it is a 3 wire only switch the 2 outside wires meaning the one on the left will be switched with the wire on the right ok the middle wire is the ground wire and does not need to be switched,
IF it only has 2 wired simply swith the position of the 2 wires by putting the one that is on the left on the terminal on the right and the place the terminal on the right on the left ok
Hope this helps
Best regards
