Re: no power to frigidaire range
How much "power" do you have at the plug/connection? (You need 240v)
You may only have partial power. Ensure to reset the 240v range circuit breakers (at least twice forcefully) and ensure proper securing "seating" of the breaker. This is very common and remember; "I am not trying to sell you a part"; but rather a solution.
* Be safe and ensure proper testing techniques and equipment usage.

check if the breaker tripped, sub panel usually indoor, establish power at the power outlet where your stove/oven plugs into. If you have power at the outlet, then look for a inline fuse in the wiring.Usually located in or by the circuit board for your appliance.
all repairs should be performed by an authorized service person.you may have blown your home electrical breaker for the range. reset the home breakers make sure you reset both breakers. high voltage ranges have dual switches.the range should work after resetting the breakers.
To start off make sure that the electrical outlet the range is connected to has power and is functioning properly. You can do this by simply plugging another appliance into the outlet. It is possible that the breaker will not be tripped and the electrical outlet is shorted out. If you find the outlet is bad then it will need to be replaced obviously.
When you were installing the bulb you might have somehow shorted out the electrical system for the range. This could have been caused by loose wiring to the bulb socket. And by trying to install the bulb you may have shifted the wires causing a short. If this is the case then the socket and or wiring will need to be repaired/replaced.
There will be a fuse located inside the range where the main power wires come in. This is there to protect the key components inside the range from an electrical short. This fuse is usually an in-line fusable link and not a standard plug type. The location and fuse type can vary from unit to unit and consult the wiring schematic located at the back of the range(usually inside panel). The schematic will guide you to the fuse location. To check this you will need to remove the back panel of the range and then test for power at each leg before and after the fuse. If you are getting power and the fuse is tested good then you may have damaged the ERC(brain) of the unit.
Some things to consider is the following...
1. Is the range under warranty? You might not want to dis-assemble the range if it is still under warranty. This damage might be covered under a warranty.
2. How comfortable and experienced with ranges? Not to discourage you from trying to repair yourself but improperly repairing a range can be dangerous. As with all repairs you will assume all risks including dangers of fire and electrocution.
Let me know if you have any other questions...
I hope you find my advice helpful and thanks for using FixYa.
why you replace the fuse? no power? or what? the fuse is in the plug if your plug is fuse type,and check your main outlet if is no power inside the oven no fuse,all parts is direct line to the power but its hard to explain how to check the unit if is ok or not if you are no basic idea how to do in the 1st place,call and service technician to make sure.
Take a 12v test light and wrap the probe with electrical tape, leave about
1/4" exposed. With the key on, ground the test light wire and insert the
probe into the outlet and touch it to the center power contact. If the light
stays out and you have a good ground, you don't have +power at the
outlet. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad wire or socket. But if it
lights up, we go to the next step. Touch the probe to a known +power
source and ground the wire to the metal side in the outlet. If you don't
get light, check the ground for the outlet socket. Repair as needed.
If it lights up, then you know you have power and ground. Check the
plug on the device you're trying to use. I hope I was of some help.
Well first you want to verify that the range is getting power from your electrical outlet. It is possible that the GFCI has tripped causing no power to the outlet. Once you have verified that there is power to the range you will next need to unplug the range and remove the back panel to do a visual inspection. Verify that there are no loose or disconnected wiring. Also look for any melted wiring or parts. Also check for any burned electrical odor. There might be an inline fuse located inside the range usually located on the hot side of the incoming electrical wire. Verify that this fuse is not blown. If the fuse is bad then you could try replacing it but if it blows again then there might be a short somewhere. And make sure you replace the fuse with the same rating that you removed. If the fuse is good then you might have a bad control board.
The fuse is in the harness and will be a fatter portion of wire. It is not recommended to use a GFCI protected circuit for the spark type ignition ranges. If it did or does work consider yourself fortunate. Eric
