    rechecked all wiring and all is o.k.. Long story short, front right burner stayed on and I replaced relay board. All burners did not work and it beeped and flashed f5. research shows to replace clock board. Did that and same outcome. I hope that it is not all burner controls are bad. What do you think?

The fault codes can be found here: http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Frigidaire

  • the codes depend on what version of stove you have, that is why i used a link to them.
  • double check your wiring and make sure nothing is shorted out or wired incorrectly.
  • all the burners share the same neutral wire so that is where i would look first.

  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

    my assistance has already been rejected, so i don't know if you will get this post. before buying any more parts, check to make sure you are getting a full 220v at the outlet and test each leg (110v) against the neutral and ground wires to make sure they are good too.

    when you get a short, like the dead mouse scenario, the breaker might trip on one side of the dual breaker, giving you a machine that seems to have power but does not function properly.

Hi, F5 means your control board may have suffered a fatal error. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds, when the power is re-applied if the error comes back you will need to replace the control board (ERC). Mike

Error flashing F5


We had a similar problem where F5 was flashing but the burners actually continued to work. It turns out that this was related to moisture (the problem typically happened when boiling water). Adding a strip of aluminum tape inside the back panel seems to have solved the problem (fingers crossed).
