Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White

1 Answer

Frigidaire plef398dca While baking, Range made a sizzling sound followed by a loud pop. It also blew the breaker and smelled like the magic smoke that makes all electronics work. I reset the breaker. The burner indicators showed "PF" but the main display was dead. When I turned a burner knob, the display showed "F5". Did the Main board fry? Did an element in the oven go? Both? Niether?

Hello Bill Robbins - From what you are describing it sounds like a wiring failure or a communication break failure between the power board and UIB has occurred. Error code F5, typically indicates that the EOC will need replacing. A certified technician will need to test the wiring harness between the ESC, UIB and EOC.

Testimonial: "Thanks. Tech checked it out. EOC replaced. The oven relay torched both boards badly. The breaker did it's job in preventing a fire. Expensive fix, but still cheaper than a new range."

To be certain the elements are o/k you need to test them with a meter. I suspect one of them has failed.
You normally cannot always tell if they are o/k simply by looking at them.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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?

How to test oven control board on a Frigidaire FEF366DBE?


Hello Shawn Lloyd, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire range blew the breaker to your home out and now the oven will not heat up properly. There is not information provided in order to test the control panel I would recommend having a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. The technician will be able to use appropriate tools in order to verify the control panel is working properly. -Matt

I appreciate your inquiry, Stephanie Givan!

From what you are describing it sounds like a possible short with your breaker box or issue with your terminal block within your Frigidaire range. I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. The technician will have the correct tools to check for any electrical issues within the range to make sure the correct component is being replaced. This will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Element blew in oven; now stove doesn't work....


Sounds like the loose oven element caused a short circuit, which may have fried a wire inside the range. Or, it may have tripped the circuit breaker (or blown the fuse) for the range circuit. Check your electrical panel. If the circuit is open, don't reset it until you've removed the remnants of the oven element.

Bake or broil does not work


if an element itself had shorted it would not stop the other from working and you could inspect each element and see blistering as evidence.the pop you heard has to be in common with both elements but not the cook top[burners]so thats going to be the wiring in the back of range, or switching,[thermostat,clock timer or oven selector switch,depends on which model you have]you will have to pull range and remove back pannels.you will find an obivous burn't connection.too repair all new connections must be clean and tight,or will burn again.
