Frigidaire range blew up

Hello, i have a frigidair range stainless steel, smooth cook top, last night i was baking a cake, i checked it .then 2 minutes later i hear a load buzzing noise (electricity) and the whole oven looked like a big lightning bolt then a loud poping noise, it blew all the power out in my house, and afterwards the element on the bottom of the oven broke in half, we unpluged it right away, tried to plug it in today to see if the stove top worked but no lights, nothing, was wondering if it is fried and it could of been a problem w. the range, or maybe a electrical surge in my house?
thanks

    HC,
    The only help I can provide is advise. You should have either an electrician or an experienced appliance repair tech out to diagnose this for you.
    I'm just saying that this is NOT normal and should most definitely be checked out by a pro. OK?

    Play it safe on this one,
    SG

It sound like something shorcircuited and put WAAAAY more current through your oven than it can handle.
You could test the circuitbreaker's circuit by pluging something else in that circuit (a 2kw appliance would be an appropriate test).

It's hard to say for sure but with a fault like that if it wasn't from the oven itself your circuit board should show a visible sign of overcurrent.

I would suggest trying to get something out of the Frigidaire, talking to the retailer if he can do anything and if no one gives contact a consumer reports journal. They love dirt like this.

Frankly, this fault, if it is oven related is dangerous and all appliances should be 'intrinsically safe.'

Good luck.

I have FGES3065KFA gallery and I have baking problems. It bakes outside of the cake but inside of the cake stays raw. Me and my husband check the bake and broil element they work fine. We change the...


read the mixture instructions
try preheating the oven for the required temperature or when the thermostat turns the light off
insert the cake to be cooked and leave it there for the desired time
Too hot will burn the outside with out cooking all the way through
check the ingredients carefully as if the mixture is too wet ( butter, milk, water all make it wetter than required )
Place the cake in the center of the oven ( not on the bottom shelf or the top shelf)
All these may sound mundane but they all point to getting a good cake result

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
