Just purchased and seems to meet my expectations
I am replacing a 24 year old stove that has never had 'any' problems, but since I had to replace my 24 year old refrigerator, due to failure, I decided to replace the old stove at the same time. This stove definitely has a lot more features and I hope it is a good as my old one.
Although I have not had a lot of time to use all of the features I have to admit that I love the ones I have tried to date... namely the convection feature. The glass top is a nice touch and the heating elements seem to maintain a very constant heat and they definitely heat up very quickly compared to the coil elements I was used to.
The one thing that I was somewhat disappointed with is the fact that it did not come with a broil pan. Had I known this I would have kept the one from my old stove, and unfortunately I did not notice this until after my old unit had been removed and junked.
I was also surprised by the fact that the warranty period is only 1 year. I do have the choice of adding an additional 2 years with the extended warranty option. This being said I would think such a product should be warrantied for 3 years at minimum and Frigidaire would stand behind the product a bit more. This does not leave me with a warm feeling considering my old unit never had any problems in 24 years of service other than replacing the oven light a couple of times. I would like to think that such a unit should be problem free for at least 3 years in a typical home environment.
Having an Electrical/Electronics background I find it odd the unit would use a 'mechanical relay' to cycle the Bake and Broil element as I can hear it clicking. In this day an age I would have thought a solid state relay (ie:triac) would have been used which would increase the reliability of the unit, at least in theory. BTW this goes back to the warranty concern above.
As previously mentioned, I have just recently purchased this unit and time will tell as to what the quality of the unit will be in the long run. In the meantime I do like the unit and I am pleased.

I Love this stove!
I bought this stove over a year ago and now that I am selling my house I have searched out where I could get the same one. Nothing I would change about it. Love the porcelain racks so you don’t have to remove them when on self clean. Also the elements heat up water very fast. Great product with great features.
