Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White
Was using large burner, turned to simmer mode
after about an hour the small burner area kept heating up, shutting down, and heating back up
shut main circuit breaker off for 10 minutes, didn't help, continues
only way to shut off stove is to shut off circuit breaker
purchased May 2003, professional series, smooth top, warming draw, warming burner, bridge burners, one large burner with small burner and this is the burner problem
This stove uses a special switch that turns one way for the large burner and the other way for the smaller burner. I was not aware that this had a seperate simmer burner on it, however. I think you using the wrong term there.
This is not computer controlled--the only computer on it should be the oven switch. I would assume that you need to replace the switch for the dual-size burner. If you take your model number in to Sears, or log onto Sears dot com, you should be able to get to the PARTS DIRECT web site on the computer, and if they ever sold that model you should be able to pull up a parts breakdown with expanded drawing and part numbers and prices. You should be able to buy the part from them. The part should be virtually the same as ANY recent model Frigidaire or Kenmore stove with the same style burner. This should be a very easy repair for you to make yourself, assuming that you know a little about working with electricity--remember, this stove USES 220 VOLTS!
Check out all of the wiring coming into the switch and going from the switch to the burner to be sure that there is not a short!
If you have one of the older smooth surface stoves, where the burners are part of the ceramic top, all bets are off, but anything you bought new in the last half-dozen years, should have a separate burner underneath a glass top, and the repair should be simple. Even with the older stove, it is still likely the switch, and should be no problem.
