Frigidaire Oven Temp Sensor

4 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have a Frigidaire Oven Model RE36BNL2.   Today it started beeping with an F2 code without the oven on.  I turned the oven on, and it shut the oven off and beeped and flashed an F3 code.  I understand from reading here it is a faulty temp sensor.   I see where it is inside the stove, but was wondering what is in the rear / what it takes to replace this sensor.  I cannot move the stove since I need help doing so.  I was just wondering if anyone knows once I pull the stove out from the wall what I need to do to replace this sensor.  It looks pretty easy from the inside, 2 bolts, but I'm sure there is something else in the rear.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Nev

it comes out from behind the stove (older models  ) remove the power and remove the back panel it is located where the auto doorlock would be . now keep inmind we at sears were told to lose the plastic connecter and connect the sensor with wire nuts this is from the factory. hell i`m going to post all the service flashes i have !

Thanks for the advice.  Here is where I am now with this...I got a new temp sensor and installed it.  Was fairly easy, just had to cut the connector and use cermamic wirenuts to wire it in.  I thought the issue was fixed....

Now, the problem is so intermittent its driving me nuts.  We can cook some days and its fine.  Other days it starts beeping with F3 or F2.  I had the oven running for 3 hours at 550 degrees, no problem.  Today, I had it at 350 for about 20 minutes and it started acting up again.

What could it be now?  I'm afraid it could be a very expensive part now.  Help!

Well,  I have a decision to make here.  It appears it is the Electronic Oven Control, which for my stove runs close to $250.  I don't know how much my stove cost new or how old it it.  It was here when I bought the house 8 years ago.  My decision is to put the money into this stove, or buy a new one for a few hundred more?  Any suggestions?

Thanks
