Welcome to the forums.

That problem would indicate a possible shorted relay on the control board.
On some older electric appliances a defective/shorted element could also cause that problem.

The next step would be to turn power off and check the element with an ohmmeter for a short to ground. You should post the model number too.

Model # FEF326ASA
So this wouldn't be the thermostat probe? Please advise how to check the top and bottom elements with an ohm meter.

Okay. figured out that the thermostat and elements have continuity. Does the continuity need to fall within a certain range with these parts or does any continuity indicate a functioning part?

Ok.... if you have heat.... the elements are not open.
You need to check from the end of the elements to ground. There should be no continuity.

Many ranges shut off both legs of the 240v power to the elements so that in case of a shorted element or when replacing the element there is no short to ground. Yours does not. One leg of the bake and broil elements is always live. That means never remove an element from your oven without turning the power off or pulling the plug.

So if one of the elements was internally shorted to ground it could heat with the oven/broil in OFF.
You can download a Frigidaire manual that has your wiring diagram on the last page.

Check from the end of the elements to ground. Excuse my ignorance, but how do I go about doing that? Novice here. Could this eventually mean that the problem is a bad element? Thanks.

The oven beeps when temperature is reached, but the lower element still continues heating (glows red.).

Okay. Fault code F1 came up when I plugged it back in. The manual says it is one of three issues.

1.Shorted keypad (replace EOC)

2. Controls internal checksum has become corrupted (replace EOC)

3. Control has sensed a runaway oven condition. May have a shorted relay (as you said) or the RTD sensor probe has gone bad (check sensor probe, if continues replace EOC.

I checked the sensor probe, should it have a specific reading? The needle swung over to the right when I connected it. It's an old analog meter.

Looks like a new EOC, huh?
