Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.

The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

Hello! I have this stove in black where something went bad inside last week (made like a crunching sound). It still runs but seems to only be getting 110 electricity. Clock and lights work and the large oven stays warm. Everything was working fine until this happened. Could be an inexpensive fix- I willing to sell it for repair or parts if you are interested. The griddle alone sells for $170.00 through Sears. Cynthia

I have an old kelvinator stove ,the burners work, but the oven does not . i'm hoping it has a fuse or circuit breaker that just needs to be reset. ( I had one just like it and the burners worked but t


Some old stoves did have a fuse for the oven igniter. It could be just a bad igniter. Check under the top panel and see if there is a small black cap toward the right side toward the back. If there is one then it is the fuse. replace the fuse and see if the oven comes on. You may still need to replace the igniter. If it an electric stove then the element is probabaly burned out or a wire burned off.

I need a replacement element (8 inch) for my Kelvinator range (model no. KRS J3L-1)


Hi, W/D here.
Here's the easiest way that I know of to repair your stove:
Remove your element. Most can be removed by lifting the element on the side away from where the leads disappear under the stove top, and then pulling it out of the plug-in socket.
Take the element with you to one of the larger hardware stores, and locate the elements that have your style of terminals. The elements are generic; that's why you needed your old one. I have replaced dozens of elements and have found the generics to be every bit as good as one ordered, and cheaper, too!
Best regards, --W/D--

The stove top is internally wired separately from the oven. Check that you don't have a faulty circuit breaker in your breaker panel. The oven is 240V which has two breakers ganged together. If only one side trips you can loose power to the heating elements but still have power to the control board (to light up ON).

Oven does not get warm, suspect it is a fuses but cant locate it


It is probably due to a broken heating element in the oven. These are relatively easy to replace. You can test it with an ohmmeter. It should measure low ohms. If it is open circuit then it is broken.
