Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White

What will make a oven come on with the oven knob turned to the off position?

My oven keeps coming on by itself even though the oven knob is on the off position. I was wondering if somebody could tell me what it could be and how to fix the problem. It comes on and stay on for a few seconds but then it will kick off by itself. This is starting to worry us that it keeps doing it.

Maybe your knob is turning but the rod the knob is connected to is not turning. Best to remove knob and turn the rod to off position with Pliers to be sure it is actually being turned to the off position.

SOURCE: Oven turn's on, keep's heatings at a higher temp.

This is failed communication between the EOC and the temp sensors located in the oven. i recommend testing the EOC(break point test on the pins) for its operational value and the temp sensors as well. replace any component that doesn't register.

I would also inspect the oven temp sensors for welded harness and fouled housings.

In most cases, this will be a EOC issue.

SOURCE: my self cleaning oven door will not open, and keeps beeping and

The F9 code indicates there is a problem with the door lock.

Try disconnecting the power to the range for 10 seconds and reconnecting. Open the oven door and hold the door switch plunger in while you try these things. Put the control into clean for 5 minutes then cancel clean. You must hold the door switch plunger in for the 5 minutes.

Try canceling the clean cycle without putting the control into clean.

    SOURCE: Probe light on convection oven stays on. Clock won't display. Oven still works though.

    Sounds like the control board is not communicating correctly with the rest of the unit, consult a professional.

    Both lights on the top oven work when using it as an oven but when using it as a grill, they don't! There doesn't appear to be any other fault as the oven and grill still work fine. Any thoughts...

    The unit is working as it should. The top oven lights will only come on when the top oven control knob is turned on. The grill control does NOT turn the lights on. If you want to see what you are grilling, then you should turn the top oven control on to its first position. This works even if the grill is operating.

    Bottom oven element stays hot will not cut off

    In order for the element to stay on, the oven switch must be broken. No details are provided, but if your oven is like most, you have an Oven Selector knob for ~bake, broil, clean and another knob for Temperature selection.

    Look at your Oven Selector knob closely to make sure it is not slipping on the shaft. It may be as simple as the knob being broken, and even though you are turning it to the Off position, the switch may still be on. If the knob is indeed turning the switch shaft, then it is most likely the switch stuck in the own position. Thanks for using FixYa.

    The oven will not turn off even though both dials are in the 'off' position. The light remains on and the fan continues to run. The oven continues to produce heat.

    Bottom oven is not working even though the top one is 720EF model

    When you turn the bottom oven on, does the fan start to run in the oven? Do the oven lights come on? Does the main cooling fan switch on? Does the oven control knob illuminate? Does the thermostat neon illuminate?
    As a guide, the power/control for the bottom oven is via the main switch on the front panel. Power then goes from the switch through the thermostat to the the oven/element/fan. The lights go direct from the switch.
    I hope this helps.

    I have a arrow oven and when i plug it in and turn the socket on the oven turns on even tho the oven is in the zero position

    Most likely the fastening screws on your knob might have come loose and shifted position. Turn the knob anticlockwise i.e.towards left of "0" position and see whether it will move. If it does, then your knob is loose. If the knob does not use a fastening screw, then the spring clip/the center hole of the knob is enlarged resulting in the knob shifting position. Replace the knob.

    Hotpoint Glasstop Stove - Burner turns on by itself

    I have a GE stove which I purchased in 2004, and it is doing the same. I heard beeping coming from the kitchen in the middle of the night . I went to the kitchen and the oven was on by itself. I have been unplugging it when not using it. Maybe this could be a recall.

    Kenmore oven locked

    Hello dktshopping,
    I know you probable don't want to hear this but in you circumstance, I think you would be better off to contact a repair professional. Those oven door locks are meant to keep the door from opening during the oven's self-cleaning cycle. They are both mechanically and temperature controlled so that the door can not be opened when the oven is 950 degrees. It sounds to me as though something is not releasing to allowing the locking mechanisim to disengage from the door even though the lever is in the unlock position. The unit will probably have to be taken apaprt to remedy the problem. Good luck.

    Hotpoint eg76x grill

    Hi there,

    If the grill is working in some positions on the switch but not in others it sounds like the switch under the knob may be the problem. Does the same switch control the fan? If yes I would say you will have to replace that switch and that the contacts more than likely are worn inside the switch. Switches are usually not hard to replace and usually have lugs or a push/pull connector. Make sure you TURN OFF the POWER before you start trying to remove it. Hope this helps.
