    Default oven will not shut off

    Frigidaire electric stove

    M- fef352dsa

    In order to get this oven to turn off, I have to unplug it. The surface burners turn off with the switch.

    I'm thinking a relay on the control board. What is the best way to check this? Hoping if it is a relay, I can just change the relay or whatever part it may be on the board if it is something on the board.

    When I plug the stove back in, the oven does not come on until I push bake or broil, but I will have to unplug it to turn either off.

    Either a wire is shorted/melted or as you mentioned a relay is sticking/stuck on the control......the relay/control is most common...

    ...a volt meter should help in testing...turn off oven, when it stays on is the power still coming out of the clock...if yes, unplug the range and then try ohming the relay(s) to see if stuck closed or taping them to see if they break free and open up again.

    Taping them??? I don't understand.

    Evidently, if it is a relay, it comes unstuck when the stove is unplugged. Well, I guess it could come unstuck when the power is put back to it. This is gonna get a little tricky without changing the whole board out I am afraid. Hoping I can remove and replace a part on the board.

    A wooden spoon, insulated end of a screwdriver....tap on the relay itself.

    You would have to have another clock with the same voltage/size parts to try an replace a part on the control as the manufacture does not supply separate parts for the part.

    Okay, the typo threw me off. Tapping on a relay I can understand.

    I will try to determine by the wiring diagram which one I need to check if it is a relay.

    One of the stoves was not very clear..

    I go through the same thing sometimes when I have to substitute another word for one I thought I knew how to spell.

    Reminds me of "use it or lose it". I really am surprised sometimes at the words I suddenly can't spell.
