May have fried my oven

Today I ran the self-cleaning cycle on my Frigidaire free-standing gas stove and received the dreaded F10 error message (runaway temperature) and the dial for the heating drawer that is on the face of the control pan was starting to melt! We turned the gas and electricity off to the oven and called the repairman.  I may be looking for a new stove soon, any recommendations?  I have 30 inches of space for the stove, between two sets of cabinets.  Gesh, I was just trying to clean it after my holiday baking was all done.  I've had the stove for about 4 years.

Repairman came.  Crisis averted, although I will not have an oven for a week while the part comes in.  It could've been way worse, at least I didn't have anything baking in the oven when the Electronic Oven Control went south.  Also good news that the oven igniter still works.

That's good news.  4 years old is awfully new!  My oven door handle fell off the other day.  Good thing we still have the manual so I could fix it next week.

Interesting. My Frigidaire electronic oven control just had a runaway temperature blowout. I'm waiting for the repair part now and I'm glad I had purchased the extended warranty...stove is 3 1/2 years old, electric, not gas. Maybe Frigidaire should recall and replace the extant guages.

The Electronic Oven Control part just arrived and the repairman is here.  Hope the oven gets fixed today.  I miss not baking bread.
