I have a Frigidaire oven that is off but the bottom oven…

Customer Question
I have a Frigidaire...

I have a Frigidaire oven that is off but the bottom oven burner is glowing red and hotter than ever, showing a code F1 . What's this code mean

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

Model# *****

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

Maybe. If it's just changing a part out or something relatively easy

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

No. I've pushed the cancel button a few times. I've turned off the breaker at the breaker box for a few hours. flip the breaker back on and it starts heating up automatically

Hello… My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today as well as providing a quick and straightforward solution to your oven question. On behalf of Just Answer, I do apologize for the extended wait time you’ve experienced without an expert responding to your question. Now that I am logged on, please allow me a few moments for some research and to confirm my recommendations, which will appear shortly.

In the meantime, if you have any more information you would like to add, ask additional questions, would like to make a comment, or would like to upload helpful photos, please use the reply box below. Thank you!

The F1 error code on this model of Frigidaire range indicates that the electronic oven control board detects one of the following errors:
Failed oven temperature sensor probe
Shorted keypad
Internal electronic control board error caused by a power glitch or surge through the electrical lines
Failed electronic control board
The electronic oven control board will likely need to be replaced.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but you will need to contact a trusted service provider, to determine what is causing the error and replace any defective parts. In the meantime if you need to shut the unit off, do so at the circuit breaker. If you need to use the top burners you can turn the breaker back on temporarily.
