Question about Frigidaire FEF352 Electric Kitchen Range
Put the broiler on high and then saw flashes of light inside the over through the oven window. i thought it was the light bulb, so i opened the door to have a look and sparks flew out the door. it turned out to be the top element. it had a red hot band (about 1" long) on it and the rest of the element past the red hot band was dark. i cut the broiler off and thought that would dtop the red glowing band. i left for church and came back and found the broiler still trying to heat the oven. i turned the breaker off.
Question - is this a bad element, or has the element going bad fried some other electronics?

do you have voltage? you have to have 240 volts if you only have 120 this might happen check your breaker. does your bake element work? if neither bake or broil work always check the breaker first and let me know

you should have 220v between the two terminals of the elements, either the switch is broken or a contact is burned or a feed wire is broken to the switch, check wire diagram and carefully analyze the system while it is "hot" ie... energized

Even though the ignitor glows it does not mean that it is working...sounds crazy but it is true... the ignitor needs to pull a certain amperage to let the gas valve open and as they get older they stop pulling enough current...

Hi Chris Stewart - If the bake element and the top of the range works, but just not the heating element, then you possibly have a bad broiler element or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then the control board may possibly be faulty and needs replacing. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.
