Fridgidaire Complaint - Frigidaire Professional Series Electric Range~DANGEROUS!!! So upset!
We purchased our Frigidaire Professional Series within the last two years. Our previous stove was also a Frigidaire which we had for about 4-5 years. We really wanted to stay clear of any Frigidaire because of the fact that our last one was "disposable" and we really wanted an upgrade. We were told by Lowe's and HH Gregg that this Series was one of the best ~ we bought into all the wonderful talk and made the purchase.
It worked fine up until this past weekend~even though my Husband hated that it always took at least 25-30 minutes for the oven to pre-heat. My Husband was on shift (fire fighter) and I was making TV dinners for my kids. I put the plastic trays on a cookie sheet as instructed by the box and put them in the pre-heated 350 degree oven (which actually smelled funny when it was pre-heating). I had it in only for about 5 minutes when the range made a beeping noise. I went in and there was an error code in the display. There was no way for me to turn anything off or stop the "alarm". I immediately looked up the code and it stated it was a "Run Away Temperature" code. I ran and flipped the breaker to turn the oven off. When I took the food out, the trays were completely melted onto my cookie sheets.
The warranty is up and the cost to fix this plus labor is going to be between $250 and $450 depending on what they have to replace. I have read other reviews about the same thing happening to other Frigidaire Professional Series Electric Ranges...obviously this is a major problem one that Frigidaire now knows about and should have notified everyone that there was a potential problem.
Coincidentally, My twin Sister's Frigidaire Electric Range had an electrical incident happen this weekend as well~the entire top control panel "popped" and started burning. She has 7 kids (one special needs) and was so scared that her house could have burned down (as was I) and is also shopping for another range...not a Frigidaire. Shame on you Frigidaire, your electric ranges are VERY dangerous!!!!
