Your question is a bit unclear but:

  1. Modern ovens that are working correctly do not need to be routinely unplugged after use. They use very little electricity when off, and the auto timer on most ovens will not need re-setting every time it is plugged back in.
  2. Modern ovens often have a necessary 'cool down' cycle that runs after the oven is switched off. To reduce running costs and energy use, modern ovens are designed to retain the heat they produce for long periods of time. This heat retention could over-cook food left in the oven after the oven was switched off particularly when using the auto timer. The oven trays and shelves would also remain very hot long after the oven was switched off and could pose a burn risk. The cooling fan does use some electricity, but very much less than the oven saves by retaining it's heat during cooking. It is designed to cool down like this and if it wasn't necessary or beneficial the manufacturers would not include it. If you must, then it would be prudent to let the cooling cycle finish before unplugging the oven.
  3. A hot plug or wall socket indicates an electrical fault, that will, at the very least, likely require replacement of both, or possibly some re-wiring. Employ a professional electrician to investigate this as soon as possible. The longer it runs hot, the more dangerous it will become, the more damage is being done and the more costly and disruptive it will be to repair it.
I hope this helps

Element in oven gets red hot, burns food being baked, will not shut off unless I unplug oven. how to fix?


You need a new thermostat or oven sensor. These people are pretty good but I am have trouble find details on the model number you gave. This gives an idea.

Temperature when using frigidare oven, keeps getting hotter and does not cool down


Good Afternoon Andrea,

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

GE standing electric oven range. Oven lower element will not heat up.. only gets Luke warm, can still touch it, although the upper oven element gets very hot. What could the issue be?


Sounds like the bake element - do a visual check and look for blistering or cracking. If it looks normal, unplug the oven (or flip breaker for wall oven) and then you can remove the screw holding the element and pull it forward enough to unplug it and do a continuity test with a multimeter. If it test bad, replace the element.

I am getting a E2 F2 code on my kenmore electric range model 95014102, pressing the clear button does nothing, I unplugged the stove and the code went out for a few days it is back on. What could be the...


The E2 F2 is an indication that the oven got too hot and shut down. If the oven actually got too hot the issue is most likely the main control board. If the oven did not get too hot the problem would be the sensor.

My oven does not shut off.


Hi there, this is a serious control fault that may be fixed by unplugging this unit for a five minute period. after this hard reset, plug the unit back into the wall outlet and power up. if the unit continues to stay on, you will need to replace the control(electric oven control)board.

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.
