I have a Frigidaire self cleaning electric oven. I heard a two pops and this tripped the circuit breaker. I can't reset the circuit breaker because the pops occur again and trip the breaker again. Any thoughts? Rob from Toronto

I have the same problem. It's happen two times. The first time, it was an unprotected power lug connected to a heating element that makes contact with the metal cover (just under the glass). The breaker tripped and after a careful isolation maintenance it was ok. Last night another f*** spark occurred. This time, the breaker did not trip and the heating element’s warm light are always ON. It’s the same problem on a different position. But it was a thermostatic contact lug shorting whit the f*** metal cover. The main issue is that the glass top is used to maintain isolation gap between power lugs and the casing (grounded). In fact, heating elements are spring loaded to reduce the spacing between glass and elements. If a pressure is made by the counter-top the glass is forced to un-bond (my case) and elements can move, make short-circuit and burn down my house.

Regards,

Dave

Sounds like a shorted wire or something grounding.
Slide out range and unplug and take off bake and look around for a short either at the bake or broil element ot at the terminal where the cord connects.

If any appliance trippes the breaker there is a problem that has to be looked into, no appliance should trip MCBs or RCBs (trips), ISOLATE THE MAINS POWER BEFORE REMOVING ANY PANELS
A visual inspection of the rear is required, also the electrical mains connections. Look into this do not use the appliance until you have resolved the problem, it may turn out an amount of food had been stuck beside one of the heating elements, and causing a smell, better to be safe.
Let me know if you require any further assistance.

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?

Element blew in oven; now stove doesn't work....


Sounds like the loose oven element caused a short circuit, which may have fried a wire inside the range. Or, it may have tripped the circuit breaker (or blown the fuse) for the range circuit. Check your electrical panel. If the circuit is open, don't reset it until you've removed the remnants of the oven element.

Electric Dbl Wall Oven-loud popping noise at end of self clean


Bill ,i dont suspect the control unit is the problem im going back to the loud pop you heard I would say the pop you heard was one of the elemants blowing and that the reason the the breaker tripped if you say the clock,timer and light functon are ok it more so points to an elemant in most cases when an elemant blows it breaks the circuit .but the other componants also work when you reset the breaker i think in this case bill i would call a electrician it needs testing,sorry i could not help this time bill,but do not hesatate to contact me if i can help you again.adrian

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.
