Question about Frigidaire PLCF489AC Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Slow heating and control panel clicking

Both electric ovens suddenly stopped heating up at their normal speed and now take up to 45 minutes to get to 300. The gas stove top works fine. This is now accompanied by an intermittent "click-click" coming from the control panel. Could this be a breaker or fuse problem? Anything else? All help is appreciated!

    All fixed! My heating coil was bad - simple solution. Tested and changed it and now everything works great. It is a bit discouraging because the unit was only a year old. :-(

    I have the same problem. Slow heating and a intermittent clicking sound.

I have a similar problem with my Frigidaire FAM156R1A Air conditioner. The unit is stuck on a temp setting and occasionally makes a beeping sound. Repair tech came out and told me the control panel was broken and that this is a common problem. I wrote more detail here:

If you are sure there is 220v going to unit, it most likely is element or click / control. If you have a ohms meter, you can test the element

The oven will only heat to about 240 degrees. It's very slow to preheat and doesn't seem to get above 240 degrees in about 45 minutes.

The most likely cause is the bake element. The floor of the oven is removable exposing the element (74008693) It will likely be visibly broken.

Oven stops after a few seconds

I like the information you give.
If the unit will work with the control Panel at a 45 degree angle it tells me you have a loose connection. The 45 degree angle puts enough pressure on the connection to keep it completed. With the Control Panel in it's normal position, the loose connection Heats and Opens the connection. After it cools connection is again made until it Heats up again. Remember Expansion, Contraction. I do not believe you have a Magnetron issue!! A Magnetron does not know if the Control Panel is at an angle.
Can you hear a slight "Click" when the unit shuts down? If so this is a relay opening. When you say you replaced the Control Board. Was this the Control Panel PC Board, or was it the Cook-Relay Control Board? A Door Switch not making solid contact can do this. Is your Door latching down solid? Check for loose connections, not open LOOSE.

Whirlpool oven

When I had a similar problem, the door wouldn't unlock even after unplugging, waiting 30 minutes, and plugging the oven back in. I finally had to manually unlock the oven by turning the lock latch motor myself.

Here's a good page that describes what the lock latch motor looks like and where it's located. Of course, there is 220V current running around inside there, so please unplug before removing the back access cover and put it back on before plugging the oven back in.

My symptoms:
  • Oven failed to complete auto-clean cycle.
  • Oven started beeping; control panel showed FSE 1
  • About a minute after plugging in, oven started beeping and displaying FSE 1 again
Once I unlocked the door manually and plugged back in, the oven started behaving normally.
