Frigidaire electric range fef326ab bought in Oct 2005
heating element sparked while baking and now there is a hole in element, what could have caused this and could it be fixed, or will i have to buy new range?



Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
To the best of my knowledge you can replace the heating element with a genuine part from Frigidaire, this happened to me on my water heater and the element just got old and too hot and it just popped and left one to three holes in the element and I just replaced it. I would have it done by an appliance specialist or your local appliance repair person. When ordering the part remember to give the Brand name, Model # and they might ask for the Serial #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

SOURCE: Frigidaire Smooth Top Range/Oven stopped working

Hello all with this oven not working problem!!! I had this happen and I found exactly what causes this to fail. The circuits operate in the following manner... The oven is controlled by a double pole single throw heavy relay (wired as a single pole single throw or simple off/on relay) that supplies power to 2 other relays.. The oven relay is a double pole double throw relay (6 contacts 12 volt coil, ) it is normally open circuit, that is when the main relay turns on the power goes to the oven relay but no further. The other sie of the oven relay is wired to a second relay connected to the broil element that is normally open circuit with the other side of the DPDT relay going to Leg 2 120 volts. So in normal off mode the broiler is connected to the one side of the relay, common is connected to Leg 2 and the other side of the relay is connected to the other side of the oven relay.
SO when you call for the Bake Oven element, the power goes through the main relay to the oven relay, the oven relay clicks and now connects the oven relay to the set of contacts on the broiler relay that is connected to Leg 2- now the oven turns on. When you ask for broil the oven relay turns off and the broiler relay tirns on connecting the broiler to leg 2 (bypassing the oven relay.
I know its long winded but basically to operate the oven the power goes through 3 relays where the broiler only uses 2 of the relays (not the oven relay) Kinda dumb way to do it I suppose BUT the idea is to never have a situation where the oven and broiler can be on at the same time.
Heres what happened with my oven.. the broiler relay failed (broke internally) and the common contact shorted across both of the other terminals momentarily turning on BOTH elements, the sudden inrush of current literally exploded the output contact on the main relay and vaporizing the lead, trace and solder joint.
It was a mess... badly burned.. I found a new relay (omron) to replace the main relay.. but the other 2 were Omrons that I could not find replacements for (12 volt coils is the issue) So I did find some potter brumfield relays that were rated 10 amps per pole so I wired these externally from the timer board (ran wires to them) (doubled up so each relay was using both sides in parallel so it can handle 20 amps) The elements only use about 8 amps each anyways this worked great and since the new relays are on spade terminals with quick disconnects, are easy to swap out of they fry again (doubtful) Its a forgone conclusion these timers are ready to fry at any time and I can almost guarantee the WILL blow.. the relays arent very heavy duty at all... I would not buy another of these.. pretty weak control.. expecially these small relays.
Good luck in your repair.. a new timer was 300 my repair was 50 and WILL NOT fail like theirs did.
Cheers
Dave

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

What oven heating element?


Hello Mary, I am happy to assist you!

I understand that you are unable to read the model number in the storage drawer of your Frigidaire range and that you are seeking the replacement part number for the element in your oven. Are you needing the bake or broil element? Do you remember if you register your range? In this regard, I would highly recommend reaching out to the manufacturer directly to verify if indeed your range was register in order to provide you the correct part number. Best regards - Z

316418305 broiler element and bake element will not heat


Good Afternoon Friend,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire range, model# FEF336BC, broiler and bake element not heating. I would give your range a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.

After restoring power you will need to reset the clock. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing start.

Turn your oven on and if the elements are still not heating, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps.

-Best Regards-

Hi my oven is not heating properly. The top coil seems to produce heat, but the bottom one is cold.What gives?


Either the bake element is open, or the relay on an electronic control or thermostat on a manual control is not closing.

Hi, If I was being called out to look at your range and you described to me what you said in your post, I would definetly bring an element. I suugest you tell that to your service person or purchase a new element. That is quite often the way the element's burn out, just as you described...a sparkler. Hope that help's. Good luck and thank's for visiting fixya. Macmarkus :)

I have a Frigidaire range Model # FEF351CWB. When you turn the oven on for Bake the top and bottom coils do not heat but when you turn on Broil only the top coil heats and the bottom doesn't.


This means that the bottom heating element is burned out and need replacing, yes you are correct the top will come on when the knob is in the broiler position.

Frigidaire electric range fef336 heating elements not heating


Range does not heat (lights and timer do not operate).
This would indicate the range is not receiving the required 220 volts. Check house hold breakers or fuses, open wiring between the terminal block and the components, and the power cord.

Please leave a rating!

Frigidaire lower element not working


Does the element have continuity??Did you do an amp reading with the element connected?? Do you have voltage at the element terminals??If you have voltage at the element and you don't read amps when unit is on then it's the element.If it's the coil?The board should be replaced.Local appliance store may have it or can order it.
