It generally is the IR Element that has gone bad. Look for burned wiring where the IR Element enters the oven cavity. Check for continuity through the IR Element.

1. Check that the blower motor is moving air.
o Blower motor is not moving air: Check blower motor assembly
and verify motor is stalled. Unplug oven and correct obstruction or
replace motor. (For access to motor shaft, remove top panel.)
o Blower motor is moving air: Verify high-limit thermostat is
not tripped. See the high-limit thermostat information below.
High-Limit Thermostat:
o Thermostat tripped: Reset and determine why the thermostat
tripped (See Figure 38, Item 114). Look for excess build up of
grease inside the oven or any other source for a fire.
o Thermostat is not tripped: Check main convection heater.
1. Convection heater is defective: Unplug oven and replace the
convection heater and verify the K4 SSR (Figure 37) is not
shorted across output.
2. Convection heater OK: Check the K4 SSR.
o K4 defective: Unplug oven and replace.
o K4 OK: Unplug oven and verify all wiring. Verify P1 voltage on
I/O board is 5.0VDC (+/- 0.02) -

Frigidaire Gallery series model GLEB30T8CBA key pad not working


Hello Dana, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire oven is displaying an error code of "F8" and your keypad is not working properly. An "F8" error stands for runaway temperature (overheating). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes.

If that does not help correct your issue then you could have a problem with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

F8 code; IR element will not heat up


If you are getting convection heat. I would say it is a bad IR element. Visually inspect the IR element. Sometimes the wires going into the side will be burned and broken. You could also check continuity going through the IR element or ohm it out.
It is rare for those relays not to provide heat. Ive had a bunch stick on. Put anything is possible.

My oven door is locked closed. Also, it reads F8 and beeps. In order to stop the beeping, the cancel/off button must be hit. When I do that, the fan turns on for about a minute and then stops and goes back...


Hello,

The control board runs self checks about every 10 seconds to check the oven codition,and what the F8 error code means is it has detected a problem with the control board itself and it needs to be repalced

Turbo chef is not heating up, coming up on it reads, f8 low heat


the problem with f8 like you have said LOW HEAT
, IF the oven does not warm up in time , which is usually 8 min , it goes into f8 fault code
now please check the hi limit button , on the back of the oven , left hand side, bottom corner, if it reset and starts heating, please check bottom element and temp reading IR , IF it rises very quickly and the elemnt is glowing red , please switch off the unit at the power point , you have problem with the solid state relay, if the temp is slowly rising , then you might only have an issue with the hi limit reset button thermostat, FIRST JUST CHECK THE RESET BUTTON
