Customer Question

We have a Frigidaire Electrolux Gallery Series stove that is approximately 6 yrs old. Recently, the stove began shutting off if we had too many burners/oven going at the same time. To reset it, we would have to wait approximately 15 minutes and then hit the the breaker switch for the oven. However, if you tried to do this immediately after the oven shut off, it would not work. Now, the stove is shutting down after only a few minutes of being on, regardless if it's only one burner or just the stove. Is there a problem with the stove or is it an electrical issue?

Thanks. We have just called an electrician so glad to know this should solve the problem.

From what you stated about having to wait to turn it back indicates that the breaker had just gotten weak. Once it is replaced you will be fine.
