While cooking a chicken, my stove went schitzo, and started beeping and flashing the "probe" message next to the temp display. We have tried clearing the controls by holding down both buttons on the display, and also unplugging the unit completely for several seconds. No luck, it just keeps beeping! Any ideas for us before we call a repair man?

Re: stove controls beeping and flashing "Probe"
Most likely oven sensor / probe is the problem. It can be tested with an ohm meter. Not sure about your model, but most should read around 1100 ohms at room temperature. If there's a tech sheet somewhere on your unit, it should tell you.

The Dr lo is for the warming draw. I assume you have a warming drawer. Page 17 of your manual describes how this function works. It also states on page 11 "The Off/Cancel pad stops any function except the WARMING DRAWER, Timer and Control Lock. If you have actually unplugged the stove and plugged it back in it should come on with a PF for power failure. You push the Off/Cancel pad to clear the PF and then you have to push start to do anything else. such as bake, etc. Have you pushed Drawer OFF? That should clear the dr lo message. If this message comes on as soon as you plug the stove in or just after you push the Off/Cancell pad or after you push start or bake try to push Drawer Off. If this does not work then it apppears you have a malfunctioning control panel.
Houston, we have a problem... Your electronic relay control, (ERC), is shot, kaput, no bueno and must be replaced in order to correct your situation.
The ERC part number is 3191106, and retails for ~305.00 dollars! (I kid you not). I guess now is the time you might consider replacement over repair. That's a good question.
If you choose to proceed with the repair, repost and I'll help with details on how to do it.
I do a considerable amount of smoking and I cook my whole chicken till I reach an internal temp of 170 in the thigh or breast with a digital thermometer. It can take 3 hours or 5 depending on the chicken. Best to use a digital probe type thermometer for safety. I cook all my smoked meats at 225-250. I hope this helps.
you have a bad computer board or clock assy. same thing the most common thing that cooks the board is heat and usually from self cleaning the oven,next time send the model number,if this is a slide in stove under the oven door is a drawer,open it and look at the frame,you'll see a tag with model and serial numbers,if that functions by itself you have a bad board.
Any F code error indicates a fault has been detected . Press Clear/Off to clear display and stop beeping then reprogram the oven. If the fault reoccurs record the fault number press Clear/Off and contact an authorized service agent. If you have access to the internet you can download a manual for this appliance go to www.frigidaire.com/support/support.asp
On the customer services page click on product manuals and you will be abe to download the manual and print it off.
I had the same problem. I resolved it yesterday. Detailed instructions can be found if you access my inquiry under the user name bhmlton. If you can't find them, then let me know and I'll get them to you another way.
I had the same problem today (my wife overflowed a pot of chicken stock last night, so there was liquid all over the cook-top, and some probably got down behind the control pannel). Based on the solution to a problem that seemed similar, though definitely not as exact as your description, I checked the probe connection (unscrewed the retaining nut, then unscrewed the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then gave the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it was still properly connected). Finding nothing wrong, I replaced the housing and retaining nut, and the lights were no longer flashing.
