Most common repairs needed to fix a Frigidaire range
Electronic Control Board Replacement
An inoperative electronic control board can lead to various failures in a range, including a lack of power or heating in the oven or surface element, or prevent the oven from turning off. This is because the board serves as the brain of the range, controlling crucial operations such as regulating oven temperatures, running cooling fans, and controlling cooking time. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components. A failing board may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the range and may emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.
Power Supply Replacement
If the power supply board is dead, the range will not power up. This is because the power supply in a range connects the incoming power from the cord to the components inside. It also sends power from the control board to the oven. A defective power supply may interfere with the display on the control panel, and fail to protect the range from power surges, potentially causing damage to electronic components like the main control board. If your range is not powering up, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect it and replace the power supply board if necessary.
Surface Element Switch Replacement
A bad surface element switch may make turning the surface element on or off difficult, or a damaged switch shaft may feel loose or wobbly. The malfunctioning switch could cause uneven heating or prevent the element from reaching the desired temperature. In some cases, the surface element may not turn on at all, or it may continue to heat even after the control is turned off, posing a safety risk. If you suspect the switch on your range is bad, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect the switch for you.

Additional resources to help you fix your Frigidaire range
Getting your stove ready for the holidays is an essential step in preparing for festive meals and gatherings. Whether you have an electric stove or a gas range, it will need thorough cleaning and maintenance to keep it working properly and efficiently.
Induction ranges efficiently convert electric current into a magnetic field that heats the bottom of a pot or pan quickly. Instead of using the flame from your gas burner, you could begin using the more efficient induction heat source for cooking.
With small slots and tiny ports designed to distribute gas and control flames, gas burners are challenging to clean—unless you have the right tools and know-how.
