After self cleaning, Range trips circuit breaker when using convection

I've had the range for two years and it's worked perfectly. After just recently running the self-cleaning for the first time, I now cannot use the convection function without tripping the circuit breaker of the circuit it's on. All the other functions work fine without tripping the switch; I can cook on the burners and even bake without convection. Can anyone help me?

Self cleaning ovens use super hot seting to bake the oven clean and it sounds like it melted a wire and it is shorting out the oven on that setting. look at the wires you can see or easy to remove panels

Don't keep resetting the breaker, you have a dead short and you could burn your house down, call an electrician.

Frigidaire electric stove does not work at all

First check the breakers at your house's breaker box. A tripped breaker will be a little bit away from on. Push it all the way off, and then back on. If it trips again, call an electrician.

40 duel fuel frigidaire/electrolux convection oven doesnot work self cleaner doesnot work .

Hello Walter Buford - Try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately 30 seconds and turn on the unit. Select the self-clean option or bake/broil option. If it does not turn on, then the temperature may have tripped the internal sensor of the unit and needs to be reset. This usually has to be done by a professional since the back panel needs to be taken off and the power reset inside. Possibly the unit may have a communication problem with the EOC (Electronic Oven Control) or faulty element(s). Personally, I would recommend contacting a professional for further evaluation.

Range starts beeping out of the blue. Cannot turn off or reset. Have to shut off breaker to range. I have had entire module replaced three times.

Hello Hugh Casper - If you have already try resetting the range by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off and beeping continues then contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may be experiencing a wiring failure, communication error with the EOC or the EOC itself is not working correctly.

Sounds as though the electronic latch isn't working. I would have a service tech check it out.

After a power outage my oven stopped working. Stove top is fine.

Have you checked your 220V circuit breaker? It may have tripped and just needs to be reset.

Just installed Fridg. Gallery convection range

The PF code stands for "Power Failure". This code will appear whenever the power is disrupted to the range. Pressing the cancel button on the touch panel should clear this code. Now it sounds like there is either an electrical short on the range or a problem with your GFCI electrical outlet/breaker. There is an internal fuse that might have burned out inside the range to prevent further electrical damage or the ERC/touch panel may have shorted out. The problem is if you start tinkering with the range and it is brand new then you might void the factory warranty by trying to repair it yourself. I would leave it unplugged and call the manufacturer or the place that you purchased it from and describe your problem. There might be a recall on that model range or a problem that they are aware of. You also might want to try plugging a couple other appliances into the SAME electrical outlet plug that you used for the range and see if the breaker/GFCI trips. If it does then the problem might be with the electrical plug or circuit. A bad plug or circuit can cause damage to an appliance(like the range) so be careful with any other appliances you use to test the outlet because they could be damaged also if the circuit or plug is bad.
