Well, I was using the broiler to cook some meat, then when I went to go check if it was done, the oven just shut off. It wouldnt turn back on, and all it showed was a backwards "L" on the screen. And now its been a day and it still wont work. The stove works perfectly, just the oven and the broiler wont work or even turn on.
It sounds like your microprocessor in your control board is damaged. You can leave the power off for as long as a week to see if it will reset. If it comes up the same way, it's an electronic problem with the display driver. Frigidaires usually display an "F1" code. Any way, power down, wait at least 3-5 days, power up, clear, reset time and see how it goes. If it happens again, you may have to get a new oven control board/display.

You're actually referring to the "broiler" elements. Most electric ovens have these at the top of the main oven space. (Some gas ovens are set up the same way, but many put the broiler elements in a bottom drawer.)
As their name implies, broiler elements are active only when you're broiling. They will not go on for baking.
Broiling is the process of cooking food by exposing it directly to a high heat source at close range. To broil a steak, for example, you would place the pan holding the steak on an oven rack raised to the top or next to top position in the oven (consult the manual) and set the oven to broil. The top elements will then turn on and cook the meat by direct radiation.
Most people, however, use ovens for baking far more often than for broiling. Baking is the process of cooking food (cakes, casseroles, roasts etc) by indirect heat. In other words you raise the oven to a certain temperature, put the food on a rack more in the middle of the oven, and let the surrounding heat cook it over time. When you bake the top broiler elements usually don't come on at all.
F3 code error indicates a bad oven temperature sensor (RTD). To fix this error, Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.
no the bottom element stays off when rotissereie is used . if it was on the liquid that drips from the cooking meat would smoke or might even start a flash fire ....... if this answer helped please rate a3 or 4 stars this high rateing will help keep me in the paid answer department thank you
The pan and it's grid is all you need, The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. Some helpful info.. Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. BE SURE THE DOOR IS OPEN AN INCH OR TWO WHILE BROILING
