Question about Frigidaire PLEF398AC Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

The front right burner of my professional series glass top range won't shut off. I have tried resetting it by turning the breaker off and then back on, but that did not work, when I did turn the breaker back on, the letters PF show up. I currently have it off at the breaker. What is wrong or what does the letters PF stand for?

PF stands for power failure. That happened when you cut breaker off. Replace switch that controls burner that doesn't work.

You need to have the temp regulator replaced.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Range control panel DEAD

We tested the EOC and it will indeed need a replacement. Also, just a couple weeks prior we ran the "clean" mode on the oven as did another poster who experienced the "pop" and loss of the control board/oven function, but still had stove top function.

SOURCE: how do you replace a burner switch on a Frigedaire Glasstop Stove

Hello,

The repair on this stove will be relatively easy then. All you are going to have to do is pull out the stove from the wall and remove the upper part of the back panel where the burner switches are.

Remove the knob and take out the screws that hold the switch to that front panel. Then from there just match up the wires to the new switch off the old one.

This repair will turn out to be pretty cut and dry for you. If you have anymore questions please ask.

Thanks Again,
Bill

SOURCE: frigidaire ceramic cooktop burner turned on by itself

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

Burner control not working


Hello Tom, thank you for your post!

I understand the burners on your Frigidaire range, FEF336BC, continue to stay on. Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household breaker to the off position. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your range. If these troubleshooting steps prove ineffective, you may wish to contact a professional as your range may possibly have a potential wiring failure, faulty EOC (electronic oven control) or burners.

Frigidaire model FEC30S6ABF front burner wont turn off


Hi - From what you have described the range could possibly be experiencing a faulty element/sensor or the communication to the element from the control board is now compromised. If you are referring to the left front element, the part number is 318178110/MSRP: $65.86. Right front element, part number 316224201/MSRP: $89.60. I would suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately and properly diagnose the range.

Electric Ranges have circuit boards that control the power to each burner or element. Circuit board could be faulty. I would not mess with electricity unless you know what you are doing. Call a certified repair specialist or the manufacturer if under warranty. Good Luck

I've used you guys once before - right the first time so trying again for a different problem. I've got a Frigidaire glass-top electric range (model PLEF398CCD) and 2 of the four burners stay on...


Hello,
Thanks for using Fixya once again we appriciate it!

The problem with your stove is going to be with the infinate switch(what ya are calling knob) for the burners that giving ya trouble are shorted and the contacts inside of it are welded so they permanantly are stuck on the HIGH setting. To repair that the switches for the affected burners would need to be replaced.

The part number for those switches is 316095503 they could be purchased at your local appliance partstore or online at;

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
