Question about Frigidaire FEF366 Electric Kitchen Range

Oven door shot open

A very strange thing happened today and I was wondering if someone could help explain it. I was getting ready to cook a pork roast and I had pre-heated the oven to 450F. It's a 30inch Frigidaire self-cleaning oven and it's about 7 years old.

The roast was in a roasting pan on a rack and it had about 1 cup of wine in the bottom of the roasting pan. About 5 minutes after the roast was in the oven, the door suddenly burst open about 3 inches and flames shot out of the oven toward me while I was cutting some other food (I'm ok - just some singed arm hair). It was as if there was a mini explosion inside the chamber. The glass is fine - the oven worked fine after, and it was an outstanding roast.

What the heck happened?

Cooking a 22.8 lb standing rib roast

To have this cooked to a medium will be about 18 mins a pound. Cook a shallow pan at 325 for that amount of time. If you would like a crispy exterior then heat the oven to 450 put in the roast for about 20 mins then reduce heat back t 325 to complete cooking. Before you start rub the entire roast down with equal amounts of salt and pepper. LOTS OF EACH.

Will a plain fan convection/microwave ROAST/BAKE as well as a "true" convection that has an extra heating element and fan convection/microwave

Most likely the Kenmore is actually made by Sharp. Most of the combination microwave/convection ovens are. I have one with a "Wolf" name on it, and it roasts/bakes very well.

Frigidaire gallery electric stove too hot

You will need to replace the burner switches for the burners that are not functioning correctly.
It also sounds like you have a problem with the OCU (oven control unit), this part is known to consumers as the clock.
Do a Google search for the model number and find a supplier for the parts. All three of these parts will easily cost over $300 all together.
Also the model number you listed in missing the last 2 letters. Locate the sticker which contains your model and serial number. This sticker will be on the oven frame when you open your bottom drawer.

Fridgidaire Gas Oven/Stove #VF01816502

This is your igniting bar it regulates the gas and the start up of the oven. It is at the bottom of the inside of your stove and if you take off the cover you will see it. It is rectangular and when you try to start up the oven it glows orange. Change this and it should work fine.

Convection cooking

Convection ovens are great for roasting!
I cooked a 15 lb  stuffed turkey in 2 hours in mine. And it was juicy and fab!
My auto degree set for convection  is 325.
I have a Jenn Air wall oven, so I don't know, it might be different for different brand.
Roast or bird should be in the middle of the oven. THe air has to circulate well to get best results.
I believe rule of thumb is a convection oven takes 1/2 LESS time than conventional.
Hope this helps.
