About - Frigidaire Gallery FGEF3031KW

The Frigidaire Gallery FGEF3031KW is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, electric range models like the Gallery FGEF3031KW 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 the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. 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:
The controller died after 18 months (out of warrenty) and the estimate was 1/2 the cost of a new range to fix. Less then 2 years old and we have to make the decision of replacement or repair. When contacted about the problem customer support was useless and actually sent me data about fixing a refridgerator?!?! We owned the entire lot of Gallery appliances and found them all to be lacking in quality. Dishwasher was replaced after 14 months.
How long have you owned it:

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
