Frigidare model# FEB27S5ABB single oven. When setting temp for bake or broil the reading changes after a few seconds to 100f and does not change-oven and broiler does not heat at all. Tried breaker switches. Any ideas?

It is a good chance the bake heating element is bad. they can look fine and be bad. usually they are very easy to replace. Just make sure the power is off to the oven before attempting to remove the element. There is usually enough lead wire to be able to pull the element out from the front and disconnect the wires. If it has continuity the element is most likely good if not replace the element. If the element has continuity the problem is most likely in the control or wires from the control to the element..
On most US ovens the high temp is 550f and the lowest is around 100f for warm. I would imagine 1 is warm and 5 is 550f so 2 would be 250 3 would be 325 4 would be 425. Or you could say ribs and slow cooking 2, cake 3, cornbread 4, and 5 would be broil. The only way to know is set each number and place an oven thermostat in there to see what the temp is fer each number. Personally my grand mother cooked on a wood stove and never had a knob, she just shoved the biscuits in the oven and added another stick of wood.
sounds like you may have a bad bake element. try to see if the unit will get hot when set to broil. if it does then try the bake again. if you get no red hot heat from the bake element then you may need to replace it. when an element is working properly it will heat to a red hot glow.
If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.
The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all. The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.
If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.
to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.
If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.
Boone, by the sound of your post it sounds like the power relay board could be bad. If you had a stuck or shorted keypad, you should be getting a different code. The F2 code means an overheated condition. If it's a double oven it could mean a secondary board failure. The way to go on this would be to ohm out the temp sensor first. Should read about 1100 ohms at room temp. Another way to check it is to swap the bake and broil wires on the power relay board. They will be marked BA and BR. Fire the oven up again and if the bake element comes on then you know that the broil relay is stuck or shorted. Without being there to do the tests, I believe that the problem lies in the power relay board. The part number for the board is 71003431. Priced around 116.00. Jenn-Air usually has a 5 year warranty on these parts. Hope this points you in the right direction. Catriver..post back
