Title: Fridgidere Free Standing Gas Range with five burners & 2 ovens dead after storm
Post by: kidsteele on January 13, 2009, 04:17:33 PM
The electronic control that starts the oven is without power.  The breaker is fine.  Is there a fuse somewhere?  This is the same oven on their site if you look for a manual, but there is nothing about a fuse in it.

It is stainless with convection/conventional oven and a second small oven that looks like a warming drawer.  this one is electric and has a separate control that still works.  So the little oven works and the clock and big control that controls the oven doesn't.

thanks for any guidance.  Looking to check a fuse somewhere.

Model PLGFMZ98GCC

I updated your first post with your model number information.

Now we just need to wait for a appliance technician to come along and help answer your questions.

Thanks,

There is not a fuse on this model.
Your EOC is bad and must be replaced.
Yes, the warmer drawer is electric with separate controls.

Unplug the range and remove the electronic control. You will see a burned spot in the display.

Thank you for the answer.  This thing had minimal use.  Is it common for this part to fail like this or do you think it was a power surge?  Where might I get a good price for ordering the replacement and do you think a mechanically capable person should attempt the repair or bring in a pro?

Thank you very much.

You should have no trouble with the repair.
Enter your model number on the parts search at the left of this screen and order your part.

Wonderful!  thank you.  I will order now.  Any idea if these things break a lot and what the cause might be?

More often than not, it comes from power surge.

kidsteele sent me a PM asking about ordering the part.

The first model number kidsteele posted was, PLGFMZ98GC
When I went to look up that model it seems there was a letter missing at the end, so I asked kidsteele to check the model number again.

He then sent me model number, PLGFMX96ECC

Guessing the E was meant to be a G I went with model PLGFMX96GCC and updated the model number information in this topic too.

The EOC - Oven/Clock you need is factory part number: 316462801 icon
Looks like AppliancePartsPros.com icon is out of stock on them at this time.

I also checked http://RepairClinic.com and they did not have them.

Looks like Sears (http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action) has them on hand.

Hello again,

I now have the replacement part and am working up my courage to replace it myself.  Can anyone please provide a very simple procedure such as, pull the range out, look for three screws, slide the unit out, unplug it from x and so forth?  I am willing to unscrew things and look around, but I have never repaired small electronic things, just cars and bicycles and light construction things.

Thank you very much for all the help you have provided in the past.

Wear rubber gloves to avoid static discharge to you new part.

THANK YOU!  I would have never thought of it.  Do you think this is something I should try on my own?

You can do it.

Well, I will give it a try.  It already not functional, so I can't make it too much worse I guess.  Thank you.
