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

1 Answer

I have a 30 inch Frigidaire self cleaning oven. The oven will no longer heat up in a normal amount of time using the bake function. Sometimes I can smell gas when using bake. It cant reach the desired temp with bake. I removed the lower oven baffle and watched it during the bake cycle. The electric ignition workes fine and the oven lights off but there is very little flame and gas pressure for the lower oven. The broiler works fine and the flame output seems 3 times greater. Ive already tried the air shutter adjustment wit no luck. Any ideas?

My oven bakes, but it takes 30 minutes to preheat


Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I know from your post that your Frigidaire oven is working but the preheat takes 30 minutes. This does sound like lengthy amount of time for preheat to be completed. From what you are describing it could be an issue with the panel, element, or thermostat. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would recommend having a professional come out to diagnose your refrigerator to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts. -Matt

790.9422340A LEFT FRONT ELEMENT WON'T WORK

The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced.

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.

Wall oven needs a reset- wont heat

Hello John, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

I understand your wall-oven is no longer heating. The wall-oven has a safety thermal to prevent the oven from overheating. If the unit will not bake or broil, more than likely the safety thermal has tripped. Other possibilities are incorrect power supply or faulty main control board. I am fairly confident that an authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the manufacturer website.

Best regards!

Is the oven temperature in Celcius or Farenheit...I tried to heat up oven to cook chicken and it only goes up to 287 degrees....

It should come programmed with ?F. Have you tried to cook anything in the unit to measure the temperature? That would be another way to easily tell. Set it for the highest you can get it and bake something you normally would be at a lower temp for lower amount of time and go from there.

Oven stops working and display screen goes blank

Hello The control has developed faults in one or more of it's circuits. This clock/timer must be replaced to solve the problem. The Good news is that this is not one of the really expensive controls. Found this one for about 70$ at a website. Worth fixing- but beware the 'self-clean' function after repair, and this control should last a lot longer.  Please acknowledge this post if info helps- have more if needed- Thanks- Ed

Oven takes a long time to heat up

your ignitor could be going out. the ignitor has to get hot enough in order for the gas to turn on and heat your oven. if your ignitor is going out, sometimes it doesn't glow hot enough for the gas to turn on, or it could be that is takes longer than normal to get hot enough to turn the gas on. I would replace the ignitor and that should solve the problem. Joe
