When it comes to home appliances, Frigidaire is a brand that offers some of the best ovens, cooktops, fridges, freezers, and dishwashers on the market! But even though your Frigidaire appliances are designed and manufactured by a highly reputable company, that doesn’t mean that they’re invincible or immune to breaking down. And of course, this includes your Frigidaire oven or stove.
Fortunately, most of the common problems you’ll run into are minor, including faulty elements, which can easily be replaced on your own. But when your oven breaks down on you, you might also be experiencing issues with your oven’s main control panel, which can spell out an expensive repair bill. Below, we’ll go over some issues we see with Frigidaire ovens, faulty control boards, and what you can do to try and resolve them. With that said, major appliance repairs like a faulty control board are best left to a professional repair service rather than attempting to do it on your own.
On the other hand, just because your oven fails to produce heat or cook your food properly, that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ve got a faulty control panel.
And fortunately, there are a few simple troubleshooting steps you can take before picking up your phone to call a technician.
When your oven won’t turn on and isn’t responding, the first thing to do is check that it is properly plugged into the wall and that you don’t have a tripped breaker at your home’s main electrical panel. If you do, you can try to reset the breaker by turning it back on and then rechecking your oven to see if it’s working again. If the breaker continues to trip, you could have a wiring issue inside your oven.
However, if you’re able to reset the break and the oven still isn’t responding, it could mean that your oven’s main control panel has become faulty. While you may be able to diagnose these issues on your own, if the problem persists, or if you suspect a wiring issue, or a faulty control panel, give the pros at Denver Appliance Repair a call today!
We can help you quickly diagnose your issue, as well as getting you the right parts to get your oven up and running again!
Alternately, if your oven seems to have power, but it’s not heating up when you turn it on to bake or broil, you might have faulty elements, which are easy enough to replace. Because of the amount of heat and electricity that flow through them, it’s not uncommon for an oven’s heating element to burn out over time. Of course, it’s still possible your problem is being caused by an issue with the control panel. But a simple faulty element is the most likely culprit and the first thing to troubleshoot when you oven fails to produce heat.
Fortunately, if you’re certain you have a faulty element, replacing it is relatively straightforward. Your unit will likely have a few screws or bolts that hold the element in place. Once loosened, you should be able to remove the faulty element and replace it with a new one. With that said, you’ll need to make sure to purchase the right replacement part for your specific make and model.
That’s why we recommend contacting a professional repair service, who can ensure that the parts you buy are the right ones.
In some cases, especially with newer models, when your oven fails to operate properly, it may begin to display an error code. When you see one of these error codes, it’s easy to panic.
But the first thing you should do is try to perform a hard reset by unplugging the oven, waiting about 30 seconds, and then plugging it back in again. In some cases, this will be enough to reset the control board and get your oven working again. Unless, of course, there is some other issue with your oven’s components or wiring. In which case, the oven will likely continue to display the same error code.

While some troubleshooting steps, such as checking the power or elements for problems, are simple to do on your own, diagnosing error codes and performing repairs to your Frigidaire appliance should always be left to a professional technician. In fact, disassembling or attempting to perform repairs on your oven by yourself puts you at risk of injury. Additionally, you’ll also risk causing unnecessary damage or voiding your appliance’s manufacturer warranty. Still, if you decide to attempt a repair on your own, always make sure to start by unplugging your appliance or turning off the power at your home’s main electrical panel.
On the other hand, there are several benefits to contacting a professional appliance technician to install, maintain, and repair your Frigidaire appliances. For starters, working with a professional repair service ensures that any replacement parts used will be of high-quality, and they’ll guarantee to be the right parts for your appliance. Additionally, labour is backed by a 30-day warranty.
