Your temperature sensor is failing. Replace the temp sensor.

SOURCE: Oven appears to start, takes forever to preheat,

This is what I would do: I would unplug the range and connect my test cord to your range cord. I use an ammeter along with my test cord to read the amp draw of the bake ignitor. If it cannot get above 3.5 amps I know the ignitor is bad or weak. Since the oven is working that means there is a good circuit. In order for the safety bi-metal to open the amp draw must reach 3.5 amps or better. So to me I am thinking bad ignitor. To get to it I remove the door oven racks and bottom, I then remove the flame spreader and unplug the quick connect to the ignitor. I remove the burner and ignitor and replace the ignitor on a work bench. I am too old to be bending over and trying to do any parts replacement inside an oven. LOL. I have a training film which shows how the silicone carbide ignitor works HERE. Post a model number and I may have a service manual, do not forget to rate the answer.

Electronic control panel went blank and oven is beeping


The first thing I would do, because it is an "electronic" control panel is to unplug your stove, wait about 30 seconds, then plug it back in. Your Control panel may just need a reset and reboot.
If it is difficult to get to your plug-in, then go to your household breaker-panel box, and flip the switch for your stove to the off position for at least 30 seconds, then switch back to on. ...That's the same as uplugging and plugging back in at the wall.

Hope this helped hun ;-)

I have a 2 yo fridgedare stove that the oven went out..the stove top is working but now oven isn't? The other day while i was cooking a loud noise like a "boom" happened and now oven not working?...


The noise you heard was probably the oven element short circuiting to earth. If the cooktop and grill are working then the fuses, internal/main must not have blown. If this is the case the oven indicator light should come on when you turn the oven on. If it does the oven element is definitely faulty and needs replacing.

Oven won't heat, display out, gas burners on stove


Hello, you will probably need to pull it out and put it on something. Make sure the breaker is off to it before you test it. There is a thermostat in the very back that could be bad,check for continuity on that. Also check for continuity on the bake and broil element terminals itself,even though you have checked it to ground. If those check good,then the problems is in the control board.
Thanks

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?

I had the oven on this morning, heard a pop and the control panel went out.. stove top will heat up but the oven does not work.


You need a new Control Board. Take your model# to a appliance parts store.

It will cost about $200 and is easy to replace.

Preheat worksoven wont bake


hi The range timer is usually located in the control panel on top of the range. If you suspect the timer is faulty, don't try to fix it yourself. Remove it and take it to a professional service person for testing. Here's how to remove the timer:

Step 1: Remove the back service panel to the control panel and release the spring clips that hold it in position, or remove the retaining screws.

Step 2: Push the timer forward to release it.

Step 3: Remove the electrical lead wires from the timer housing. If, when disassembling the timer, you notice that the electrical wire terminals look burned, remove these leads and buff the leads and the terminal points with fine steel wool. Burned and/or dirty terminals can cause the timer to malfunction, but a good cleaning can solve this problem.

Step 4: Replace the old timer or install a new one of the same size and type, if this is necessary. Connect the new timer the same way the old one was connected.

Neither oven will come on


Hello kybattey
Welcome to Fixya.

You said, After coming on and preheating Saturday, the upper oven went off and the lower wouldn't work either. Control paned was blank, but interior lights were on and pushing control paned buttons resulted in beeps. Turned off breaker for 5 minutes to reset and upon retry, the fan came on for maybe 5 seconds and then went off. Nothing else changed. Any suggestions?

You say the ovens went on and then later cut off.
Does the clean mode work?
Try the clean mode and see if it goes on.
Assuming it will clean!

Since the Range will clean you have confirmation that the proper power is reaching the range. It also verifies that the elements are in working condition. You will need to check the high temperature limit switch and the door latch mechanism. If either of these is defective, the bake and broil function will not operate properly
Let me know how it goes.
Waiting your response.
Huuum
