Question about Kitchen Ranges
How do I remove the stove clock on a Fridgidaire drop in electric range?
Do you have any step by step instructions or specs?
The model number for this GE part is 3AST51G208A1F.
Frigidaire uses p/n 8015944.
your help is very much appreciated.

I just moved into a new apartment and my stove wasn't working properly. After reading the very helpful information posted by kd3ke, I decided to turn off the breaker to my stove, take off the back covering, and check out what was back there. I was experiencing the same problem as posted.... the burner light, oven light and clock were all working however, the burners did not get hot nor did the oven. After taking off the back panel, the cord did have just as he stated, a black, white, and red wire however the plug attatching to the stove did not have cordinating colors. It was just a grey cord with 3 copper wire heads. It seemed to me that the cord was twisted and therefore everything was backwards. Since I was relying on his post, that would explain why the stove still did have some power, just not all, because the voltagages were wrong. I flipped the three cord wires, reconnected them to the stove and then plugged it in and turned on the breaker... everything works now!!! :) I don't know if this will help anyone else since it may not be the same problem if your stove was working properly previously, but it fixed the problem for me since I had just moved in.

I have the same problem. This is an intermittent problem, maybe once every 20 to 30 starts the clock goes resets and the appliance beeps just like if unplugged it and then plugged it in again. I’m an electrical engineer and this sounds like the microcontroller that runs the appliance is being reset by noise caused by the spark igniters. This is definitely a design problem. Separating the wiring of the igniters and the control board should help. When I get a chance I’ll have to connected an oscilloscope and look at the noise. The control board microcontroller reset pin probably needs an RC snubber or an isolated ground. If /when I find something more definite, I’ll place another posting.

The last expert is correct.
According to the Frigidaire technical documentation, most likely the cause of the problem is a bad Electronic Oven Control (EOC).
Check the wire harness and the P4 connector at the EOC. If the wire harness and the connector are fine, replace the EOC
You could try to disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 15 minutes and see, if that could help the situation unless you need to replace EOC/Clock/Control board.
I don't think it is sensor as this is a common problem on these units and 99% it is faulty EOC.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Note - Kindly perform the repair, if you have prior appliance repair experience. These ovens are quite dangerous to work. It could not only damage the oven but could also harm you,if done in an appropriate way.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
