Question about Frigidaire FGF378AC Gas Kitchen Range
New Frigidaire Stove (model FGFL87GSG) clock resets to 12:00 when stove top igiters are turned on.
I have the same problem. This is an intermittent problem, maybe once every 20 to 30 starts the clock goes resets and the appliance beeps just like if unplugged it and then plugged it in again. I’m an electrical engineer and this sounds like the microcontroller that runs the appliance is being reset by noise caused by the spark igniters. This is definitely a design problem. Separating the wiring of the igniters and the control board should help. When I get a chance I’ll have to connected an oscilloscope and look at the noise. The control board microcontroller reset pin probably needs an RC snubber or an isolated ground. If /when I find something more definite, I’ll place another posting.

Local contractor came back. Said 6 other people have reported the problem according to Frigidaire. Wasn't home so I don't know exactly what they did but they claimed to have moved some wires around. So far no problems. Electrical engineering friend said that they likely swapped some ground connections around so that when the ignitor draws current it doesn't drop the voltage of the whole system. Not sure if a homeowner could troubleshoot and solve this one without directions from manufacturer.

Hi Ron - From what you have described if neither the burners nor oven turns on make sure the electrical connecting is 240V. The oven light and clock portions only required 115V. The clock and oven light working may indicate an electrical circuit breaker supplying the range is tripped or a fuse is blown. Confirm household circuit is correct and the range cord is properly wired to the terminal block.
