Question about Frigidaire 30" Self-Cleaning Freestanding Electric Range - White-on-White
We do have a flame, but it smells very strong of gas and heats extremely slow.
It may be that the heating element is dirty and consequently, is not igniting the gas. Mine was doing the same thing and was also making a big BOOM sound which was the sound of the gas in the oven igniting after too much gas was released.
I called a friend who gave me these instructions and it worked...I was able to fix it in about 30 mins.
1. Remove the floor of the oven...there are two screws along the back wall of the oven holding the oven pan (the floor of the oven) in place. remove these two screws using a Phillips screw driver. The oven floor pan will then pull out.
2. Remove the thick steel plate next which is located in the center...just under where the oven floor pan sits. Remove the the right and left screws located along the outside edge of the oven floor rim and the center nut. I used a cresent wrench for the two screws and the center nut...didn't feel like finding the right socket size and don't have the special screw driver fitting.
3. You will see an aluminum pipe that runs down the center from the front to the back. Near the back and mounted to right side of the aluminum pipe there is the heating element. It is protected by a metal casing. There are two screws securing it to the housing. With your wrench, remove the two screws and gently pull it back. The heating element is made of a ceramic material and is delicate. Using a tooth brush, gently brush the heating element to clean it.
