Customer Question
I have a Frigidaire...

I have a Frigidaire Range FGEF332MWC that the probe function is not working properly. The door also locks without provocation. Is there a way to disconnect the Probe Function completely it was my mothers stove before she passed away and it was still new at that time and I cannot find the probe connection?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

My mother purchased it only a couple of months before she died three years ago August.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I'm pretty handy I also have a nephew nest door that knows electrical

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I have been able to get the oven to work but then the Probe Error occurs and stops the oven. Even when I only use the stove top the Probe Error goes off without provocation and I eventually just unplugged it for the night.

Unfortunately you can not remove the probe function because the jack must be grounded and electricity must be attached to it or you'll get an error code if you try to remove it. Either way, open the oven door which has the meat probe jack inside and turn the circuit breaker off to the oven. Try to clean out the meat probe jack with white vinegar and a Q-tip in case oil has worked it's way inside. Allow the jack to dry out and then flip the circuit breaker back on. If the "probe" light continues to come on, you'll need to order and replace the display control board because it has failed and just think that the probe is plugged in when it's not. The board is also likely why the oven is locking randomly on it's own when it shouldn't.
