Everything quit at once.

We were cooking dinner and were using 3 burners and the oven, when it all stopped working. Any suggestions to the problem? And no Its not a breaker.

    After self cleaning (which seemed to work fine) my wife was wiping down the oven and heard a pop. Everything is now out. No power to anything. Is it fried? The unit is less than ten years old and we did have a problem once before of the heating element sparking and had to replace it.

This is a very strange one, and you don't say how old this unit is or how long you have had problems with it, but most likely you have a poor electrical connection. (Assuming your 50 Amp breaker for your range did not trip and you have power to everything else in your home) Turn the breaker off and unplug the range. Remove the cover over the receptacle you just pulled the plug from and check all the electrical connections. If all OK, check the electrical connections where the cord attaches to the range. If still OK, inspect additional range and household wiring to range, including the connections right on the circuit breaker

What's wrong and how do I fix it?


The circuit breaker outside in the power panel for the stove has a bad breaker. It will be two breakers with their handles joined together by a pin so if one tripe it takes the other so 220 V is no longer present. When one, but not the other trips you only have 110 V. That's why the lights and clock still work but no heating elements.

Burners wont work any more


Good Morning Fern mullen, I appreciate your post!
Based off what you have described your burners are no longer working on your Frigidaire range. This could be an issue with your control panel or the switch. I would recommend performing a reset on your range and you can do that by disconnecting power from the range for at least ten minutes. If that does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a technician out to your home for a proper diagnosis and repair. Best of luck! -Matt

I'm in the middle of cooking dinner and I got a f3 e2 error and the oven locked...how do I get my dinner out? My husband is an elevator mechanic so he's handy...we turned off the breaker to quit...


That code refers to the oven temperature sensor sensing a too hot oven. I suspect what you did to quite the cleaning cycle should help once the temperature cools down the door should open. I am a little confused, did you set the oven to clean while your cooking, or did it do this on its own, or was it preset and yopu forgot it was set to clean? Your temp sensor may be going bad if it just detected a too hot oven while your cooking. If it started cleaning then it may have gotten too hot and this is the safety device to prevent it from overheating. it sounds like it is trying to self clean, its essential that you find the error code sheet, stuck in the stove or oven cabinet somewhere, also check your range settings so that it is not set to auto clean.

All my burners arnt working! HELP!!!


There is a cooktop PCB (power control board) which is separate from the oven. Perhaps that is the problem. That board is located behind the cooktop control membrane panel.
