Quick Answer

Full Answer

Although all Frigidaire oven models display fault codes beginning with F, some models vary in the definition of the fault code. For example, an F3 fault code on older Frigidaire oven models indicates an open probe and a F4 fault code indicates a shorted probe. However, on newer Frigidaire oven models an F3 fault code indicates either an open or shorted probe and there is no F4 fault code. It is therefore important to check the fault code on display against the manual for the specific model of Frigidaire oven experiencing the problem.

It is possible to troubleshoot and repair a fault code on a Frigidaire oven by testing the failed part of the circuit and ordering a replacement part via the manufacturer's website. However, to do this, one must be comfortable testing the inner electronics of the oven. Alternatively, a repair technician should be able to source the problem and install a replacement part.
