Oven overheating.

I worked with Benjamin at the parts department to determine which part we needed. He was spot on. I also asked him if it was difficult to install. He did say it was easy and that the instructions were on YouTube. Found them, installed the part & now have a working oven again at half the cost. Tell Benjamin he is AMAZING & thank him.

Installed on a Frigidare "built in" range.

Thermostat is mounted on top of the oven fan blower unit in space between top burners and oven. Removed the porcelain top below the burners just enough to get to the thermostat (four screws in front and two on back where top burner unit is attached to the stove). Once accessed, unit is easily replaced.

Lots of disassembly to get to the part.

It’s not hard, but it might take over an hour the first time to get to this safety fuse when you diagnose the problem. If you reassemble the stove so you can use the rangetop while you wait for the fuse to arrive, the job should take about 45 minutes, once you know where everything is. If you have the patience, you can save a lot of money doing it yourself, because the part is relatively inexpensive, but the labor for a technician to diagnose and repair the problem can be two hours.

You’ve got to

  1. Pull the whole stove out from the cabinet and disconnect the power cord.
  2. Remove the control panel.
  3. Disconnect the electronic control module.
  4. Remove the console that holds the range knobs and disconnect those.
  5. Remove the cover that holds the console in step 4.
  6. Remove a bracket that supports that cover.
  7. On my stove which has traditional spiral elements, I had to lift the rangetop and unscrew the metal cover that separates it from the stove, and then, I could disconnect and remove the fuse to test it for continuity, and replace it when it turned out to be bad.

Bad location heat sensor

It is located in a bad spot right under the big burner, keeps tripping. Had to replace it twice. It needs to be located away from the burners. I should get a free one due to bad design

Incorrect part/ didn’t solve issue

There was not a part like this on our model even though the repair/salesman said it would fix our problem. THEN he sent a different part which also didn’t repair it. We bought a new stove fromLowes since Sears has closed in our town.
