We have a Frigidaire CFMV152CLBA convection/microwave in our 36FL that doesn't heat up to temperature. I used it a few times but food always came out undercooked. I bought an oven thermometer to check the temperature and it reads 100 degrees cooler than than the oven setting.
I preheated the oven to 350 and the thermometer read 250. 425 read 325. I don't think the thermometer is wrong.
Anyone else have issues with these ovens??

We have a Frigidaireconvection/microwave in our brand new 36FB. Not sure whether it is aCFMV152CLBA or not??? We have only had it out once since we bought it. The only thing we have used the microwave for is its clock. Haven't even warmed up coffee in it yet.
We will be taking it to Florida in March. I will try to remember to check out the convection/microwave at that time.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

I'm sure there is a way of adjusting the t-stat I'll look into it in the morning at the shop.

I've looked online for troubleshooting advice but haven't had any luck yet. The difficult part for me is the fact that we are full time RVers. I'm in Daytona Beach now and the dealer I bought from is in Dallas. The closest Redwood dealer is in St. Augustine, 50 miles away.
I'm hoping it's something I can adjust myself otherwise I will have to find a dealer that will let me stay in the unit while they do the repairs.

Just a thought, if the temp is off by 100 degrees why don't you a just the temp setting higher by a 100 degrees so if you want 350 set your temp at 450 that might get you by until you can get to a dealer for warantee. Like I said its just a thought.

That's my plan until I can get it to the dealer for replacement or repair.
Sadly my race day food (Taquitos) requires 400 degrees... I wonder how they'll taste grilled...

I called Frigidaire this morning and they gave me the names of a few authorized service centers near me. I called the first one on the list and they sent a technician over had the problem diagnosed within 2 hours of my call. Turns out I have a bad control panel. They're going to have a new one overnighted and will install it on Friday. Since it's still under warranty there is no charge to me.
This was one case where bypassing the dealer and going straight to the product manufacturer paid off.

Thanks to all for your input.

I'm glad it worked out, going to the dealer might have taken a lot longer in this case.

Update: The technician checked everything and decided it was either the control panel or thermister causing the problem. Both items were replaced and it is working fine now.

KR2011: Looks like we have twin 36FLs. Ours ahs the same paint scheme. Be prepared for LOTS of compliments on your rig.

I thought this microwave - convection oven - CFMV152CLBA was a bit pricey when I first started considering warranty after some were starting by themselves. I'm not in the recall, but I got a final notice I could cover it under extended warranty for $85 3/years if I wanted.

I tried looking up to see what they actually would cost to replace - and they just don't exist!! Anyone ever tried to look one up or price one? I see a FFMV152CLBA that is 1.5 cf that may be the current version, but I'm just not sure. It's only $350 through online retailers.

On edit - just called Frigidaire direct. They don't even know where they came from or why they won't register now as a valid product. She gave me a retail of $449, but not available nor in production. Not enough to worry about.

What does that mean? They no longer make the models that are in our Redwoods?

If true I would assume they have a similar replacement, unless they found the bug in our units is ultimately not fixable and we're all going to die a fiery death in the middle of the night!

How long are you going to be in Daytona Beach? We live in St. Augustine and Daytona is only 50 min down the road from us, perhaps we can get together for dinner - Thx John & Sam Moors

Mine is just a standard microwave, not a convection. That's one thing I really miss from my SOB, the 1/2 time convection oven. I never used the propane oven when I had that.

I see - I guess I thought the convection was standard on the Redwood. Guess I haven't seen a build sheet for a while.
