About - Frigidaire FGEF308TNF

The Frigidaire FGEF308TNF is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric smoothop range models like the FGEF308TNF are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects how well the lowest-powered element or burner kept a low temperature as for melting chocolate. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
I purchased this oven on 11.5.14. The oven went out 3 weeks later on Thanksgiving day. When I say the oven went out, I mean the top oven will preheat fine and start cooking the food and at some point while in the process of cooking it is as if the oven over heats and it shuts EVERYTHING off and when I say everything I mean it shuts off the elements on top of the stove, the bottom oven and the top oven and will NOT turn back on. (leaving your food uncooked in the oven) I contacted Lowes initially and scheduled a repair company to come out. In JANUARY they company finally came out and replaced the MOTHERBOARD & KEYPAD in my brand new oven. Oven continued with the same problem, I contacted Frigidaire directly, 2nd Appliance company came out in March, they explained that the oven thermostat needed to be replaced, they never showed up to make the repairs, I called Frigidaire again in April explained that their repair company never showed up to do the repairs, at this point we scheduled the 3rd company to come out. on 5/15 the 3rd company came out, while the gentleman was at my house he called the engineering dept. of Frigidaire to assist with the repair. Engineering dept told him that he would need to REPLACE THE MOTHERBOARD for the 2nd time and that Frigidaire is making a new motherboard for this oven that should be ready in June and that I would need to call back in June to schedule for the appliance repair company too come out again to REPLACE the MOTHERBOARD in my BRAND NEW OVEN for 3rd time. I contacted Frigidaire and explained to them that I had been more than patient trying to get this problem resolved but I felt as if this was no longer acceptable as I simply wanted a working oven than I paid for. I also asked how many times I would need to take off work for a repair company to come out and attempt to resolve the issue and I was told there is no limit that Frigidaire has to exert all possible solutions.... at my expense clearly. DO NOT BUY THIS OVEN the last repair guy told me that they had 8 other ovens same model that was having similar issues per the engineering department.
