Default clock panel goes out;error code;short in oven light
Model Number: FES365EBD   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com

Clock panel is blank. Turn on top burner or play with oven light switch and panel display comes on. Push 'bake', it beeps and shows a F30 code. Turn on oven light switch and panel goes blank. Technician replaced clock panel - no change. Techn claims it is my house wiring. Yet, top burners work fine. Yet, when you play with the oven light switch the panel comes on and all buttons work. Just no bake, and turning the oven lite swt on shuts everything down. Can there be a short in the oven light circuit?

Here are your parts
Cover replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE FES365EBD Frigidaire/electric Range | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the wiring diagram

Here is a sheet I found on error codes.

Can there be a short in the oven light circuit?
I doubt it would be a short as this should blow the breaker.
More likely an open with something else contributing to the problem.
Could be you are feeding bach through earth grond instead of Neutral.

You are somehow supplying Neutral or power to the control board through the fan switch and/or the stove top elements.

I would check the power to the unit just so it can be eliminated as a possible cause. Do not understand why the service tech did not do this.
L1 to L2 should be 240 volts odds are high this is OK as the stove top elements work.
L1 to Neutral and L2 to Neutral, both should be 120 volts.
Check with and without the unit connected.

If this is a 3 wire hook up I would check that the ground strap from Neutral to the units frame is OK. Also check all connections at the units terminal strip.

If the above is OK disconnect the light switch, to see if it now operates correctly.
If no change
Disconnect the temperature probe. F30 is a temp probe error so could be it is doing something weird like shorting to the frame internally.
Note with it disconnected you will not get any heat as the unit will think that it is over temperature.

Verified the incoming voltage @ 120VAC on legs and 240 total. However when you plug the oven ac cord in, you see the first problem. Checking voltage at the 1st terminal where the AC cord is connected, you get 240VAC between Neutral and one leg and very low voltage on the other leg. Both the oven light and the oven temp probe have been disconnected with no change. The service tech has now been to my house a total of 3 times and left without any idea of the problem. To repeat, the clock panel is blank; turn on any top heating unit, wait for the hot surface lamp to come on, then the panel lights up. Open the door or turn on the oven lamp and clock panel goes out. Any more suggestions? Thanks.

Just a couple questions.

Did this unit work here in the past?
Has anything been done recently with the wiring to this unit?
Is this a 3 wire or 4 wire connection?
What are the voltages at the terminal strip when the panel is working?

Something is very, very strange.
You should not be able to measure 240 volts when referenced to Neutral or ground. It can only be between L1 to L2.

Do not know how much you know about electricity but here s how it works.
Note the explanation is not strictly true but will do to explain this.
You have two 120 volt AC lines coming into the house and they share a common Neutral and they are 180 degrees out of phase.
So when one is at positive 120 volts, the other is at negative 120 volts when referenced to the common Neutral.
When referenced to each other then you have 240 volts.

So I would have to say that it sounds like the stove/line cord is wired up incorrectly as that is the only way I can think of for you to measure 240 volts from the center connector on the strip (Neutral) to either of the other terminals.

I would remove the cord from the unit and check it with a meter.
