I have a Frigidare...

I have a Frigidare stove FE686W-1 The convection fan works but will not heat up.

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

The stove is 20 years old The exact model is Fe686w-1 the stove heats up but will not work using the convection control.

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

It depends on what it is going to take to fix it

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

No to summerize. the stove works when attempt is made to use the convection the fan comes on but the element does not.

Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If you remove the back panel inside the oven so you can see the fan, is there a round element around the fan? If so, you need to test continuity through that element (unplug the oven and remove the element). If the element has no continuity replace it. If the element has continuity, or there is no element around the fan, your display control board has a bad relay or logic issue with the display board so the display board would need to be replaced.
