Question about Frigidaire FEF316 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The right front burner on my Mom's Frigidaire FEF316(I think, the # is 316232636) does not work. She heard a pop and saw a flash under the stove top near that burner when she turned it on. I switched the burner with the other small burner (back left) and determined that the burners themselves (the coils) both work. Please help.

The recepticle that the burner ends plug into get worn and loose. This will cause arching and that may be what she saw. OR, there could be a wire loose under the stove top feeding the burner. Lift it up and give it a good inspection (with the breaker off). You may need to replace the burner recepticle.

Pop heard yesterday by front right burner, everything turned off. Breaker not cut out but reset nothing turns on


There may be an internal fuse, or what you heard was the power supply connection burning apart, So now no power to the stove or stove top. Of course turn breaker off. before digging into dangerous territory.

Loud pop and light behind stove. Stove top works, oven does not.


Good Morning Stephanie - Typically you may locate the model and serial number in the storage drawer, on the right side. Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or a faulty bake and/or broiler element. If resetting the unit did not solved the issue, at this point I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the range to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle...


Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

Frigidaire Range control panel DEAD


We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.

Burners overheat


The burner control is failing for each burner. That model takes part #316021500 for the 6" units and part #5303935086 for the 8" unit.
This must be an older range, as Frigidaire lists the 6" switch and no longer in production. You can replace a 6" control with an 8" but not the other way around...

Hope this helps. Please rate my answer if this is the case.
