Re: Frigidaire range model PLEF398CCC
Turn off both breakers and then back on. Then check the wiring from the receptacle to the plug, to the back of the oven. This should be where the problem is. You particular model may have replaceable internal fuses. Look for them in the back of the oven. They are slow blowing fuses and can be checked. You won't be able to tell they are blown just by looking at them.

Hello angeleyez82 - The EOC (electronic oven control/control
board) basically sends power to both the broil and bake elements. As long as
the power supply to the range (240VAC) and wiring between the elements is
correct, then typically only the element(s) or EOC could prevent the unit from
heating. I hope this information helps to some degree.
I had this problem a year ago (both elements worked in top oven but only broil element worked in the lower of the dual ovens). I swapped elements around but the problem was still the bottom element bottom oven.
So I called the repairman. He replaced the relay board (Part #AP2127301) for the lower oven, and it worked again. Yippee.
But now a year later, I have the exact same problem. Lower element on lower oven is not working (Frigidaire you have got to be kidding)!
However this time I decided to take a look at the relay board myself, to at least save the expense of the repairman. I looked closely at the board and thought I saw a cold solder joint on relay K4. But just to be safe I touched up all the connections on all the relays with flux and a soldering iron.
Works perfectly again !!
Please if you try this, disconnect the power first. In fact if I had to tell you that, then just call somebody.
Usually the problem is the heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video athttp://appliancehelponline.com/ovenelementvideo.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.
We had the same thing happen and now they came and said it was the clock that needs to be replaced. They said that controls the oven. Even though clock is on and working the function for turning on the oven is not
The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up ) If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )
You said, We have an OLD (1950-60) Frigidaire wall oven, model # RBG-94. Bottom
heating element has gone out. Oven is still in good shape so we'd like
to be able to find an element replacement, but have had no luck finding
unfortunately, I am not able to find this part either. Anywhere. This oven is to old for parts. But most important is that it is causing you high utility rates! Today's appliances save you the arm and the leg that such an old oven is costing you. You have no idea how it is sucking your money out of your pocket! It is unfortunate, that no one told you about this years ago! You payed for more than one oven with your utility bill if you had it since it was new. My advice is do not put good money into bad! Shop for a new one and see your bills go down. my wife was telling me to replace the air and furnace for 7 years and I said, it's not broken. But it was over 20 years old. She was right, cause the new one saved me $100. a month! That means I threw away $7000. in 6 years with my old world attitude. Yes I am old fashion and always fix it! But after 25 years of marriage. i finally realized she is a good evaluator and I was a fool to not appreciate her gift for all these years! And out tons more money than I told you about!
Hope I saved you some bucks with my real life stories! Don't tell your wife!!! Huuum
