Due To Low Voltage On Power 

Your Frigidaire oven runs on 240 Voltage of alternating current.  That means each leg will carry 120 volts of power. Now you need to check if there are any problems with the power switch. If one leg of power is broken due to a burnt fuse or burnt wire.  Your oven won’t turn on.

Take a Voltage meter, put the two heads on the power switch. See what reading is showing on the meter during these times. If it shows each side of the switch 120 volts, and combinely 240 volts. That means power switches are not damaged.  

If it shows less than 120 Volts on each side or one side, it means you have to repair your power switch. If you have enough tool boxes in your home. Then you should check inside for any damaged wires. But before that please shut down the main switch of power on your home.

A Loose Or Burnt Wire Connection

When you check and run completely the outside power source and haven’t found any issue. Now, it’s time to check the inside of the oven. A loose or burnt wire connection is the reason for your oven not to work.

The bake or broil power supply wire can be burnt or damaged because of the heat source. Which eventually causes error conditions of your oven.

Then you have to change the burnt wires to run your oven again.

Burnt Thermal Fuse

On some models the thermal fuse will burnt out. You can find it inside of the oven with a thermal fuse. Which actually controls the power supply inside your oven. 

You should check the thermal fuse with a Multimeter. Check for its continuity. If the fuse starts negative on continuity with the meter. It means it needs to be changed. 

Thermostat/ Sensor

Your oven’s electronic control board works with a thermostat or sensor. It maintains the temperature during cooking. If the temperature reaches a certain amount, the sensor starts to break the voltage to reach the oven.

Doing these continuously can damage the sensors of your oven. So, you should check your sensor. Whether it is fine or not. Unlock the sensor from your oven.

You can check it through a multimeter. Your sensor is still resistant to room temperature. If the reading is close to 1100, it means your sensor is ok. If not, then you should change the thermostat or sensor.

Oven Control Board Malfunction

If the sensor is working ok, then your oven control board circuit can malfunction. While the board cannot be easily tested, you can inspect it for signs of burning or shortage of any components.
