I want to replace the bottom oven panel under the heating element

I have burnt the finish off, I know I'm supposed to remove the heating elements before I do anything but it looks like a special tool is required to remove them. Then after I remove them how do I get the old panel out?

    The bottom part of the oven, under the heating elements is all discolored & the nice shiny finish is gone. I have the new part to replace it. On Frigidaire's body part diagram it is position 8A, part #316411102. I've been told that I first have to remove the heating elements but it looks like I need a special tool to do that. And once I do that how do I get the old piece (bottom of oven) out?'

    Thanks for any help!

    I wanted to run the self clean but the person I spoke to at Frigidaire asked me if I had used a chemical on the bottom & I said yes. What I used was Zud, vinegar, ammonia, grease relief, etc. So she told me not to run the self clean.

    The problem happened because I put an aluminum oven liner on top of the heating element forgetting that I had a silicone liner on the bottom piece under the heating element. The heating element burnt partly through the aluminum & the silicone liner sort of shredded. The consequence was a tremendous amount of smoke when I opened the oven door & a burning in my throat & my family's throats which lasted at least an hour. For all I know, the heating elements may need to be replaced also. There's still some odor in the oven & this all happened just about a month ago.

Bottom oven bottom element doesn't heat


Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60

In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.

Oven won't brown food properly


sounds like the upper element is burnt or the fuse is burnt.check the fuses first,by opening the access panel at the top and rear of the range,check the fuses to verify that they are good,if okay then open the oven door and remove the element and inspect the contacts and element for burn marks or breaks.if so replace either the element or the burnt contacts.

THere is no bottom element in this oven. Is there supposed to be one??


you are right jsrock, there is an element under the floor pan, but if this person bought it from someone (not a dealer) that may explain the lack of knowledge. The benefit here is in the cleaning, and not having to lift the heating element to place foil or teflon sheets underneath as in "the old days." I like it this way better!

Burners are working oven is not working ?


The heating element may be burnt out, you will need to replace this element if it does not heat up when the oven is turned on, try turning the oven to broil if the top element heat up then indeed it is the bottom element and need replacing.

Hidden bottom element not heating. Went to remove it and it had burnt through. New element doesn't get hot.


Assuming that you installed the replacement correctly, can you check the element with a resistance meter?

It's possible the replacement element you bought was faulty. But first, we want to ensure that the oven is otherwise functioning correctly. You'll need that resistance meter to check continuity along the red wire (i'm presuming) that connects your top and bottom element to your selector knob. Also make sure there are no internal fuses in your oven that may have blown.

Please remember to turn the oven off at the breaker board before working inside it.

Hope this helps, let me know.

Broiling works but baking does not work


CHECK FOR 240VOLTS AT THE TERMINALS OF THE BAKE ELEMENT. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING THE BACK PANEL OF THE RANGE. SOMETIMES THE TERMINAL WILL BURN OFF OF THE WIRE GOING TO THE ELEMENT. THE WIRE WILL JUST BE HANGING THERE. BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE OVEN BEFORE REMOVING BACK PANEL. IF THE WIRE IS BURNT, REPLACE THE TERMINAL AND REATTACH TO THE ELEMENTS TERMINAL. IF THE TERMINAL IS DAMAGED, REPLACE BAKE ELEMENT.
IF THERE IS NO VOLTAGE TO THE ELEMENT, REPLACE CONTROL.
