Question about Ovens
Hi there i have a problem with the cooktop elements of my electric oven. They seem to be overheating, you set the dial to a low or medium temperture and the element glows red hot, this seems to be intermittent and affects all four elements
Oven is a Westinghouse Avondale . PAJ161B*10
After getting an electrician out, apparently the time needs to be set on the oven. As we're in a rental & don't have a manual/ couldn't download one, we got it to work after holding the first two buttons in (the timer buton + the one that looks like a hot pot) along with the + button at the far right, which made the tim tick on, so it could be set.
The oven works now! : )

It sounds like your Frigidaire made kenmore may have a power supply issue, the power block that is located at the rear of the oven may be at fault. part number 5303935061. However the digital clock can also cause this problem, and should be diagnosed by a technician.

SOURCE: Hi; I own a GE
There are no fuses inside your unit, only a few relays and 2 thermostats that are very easy to test with an ohmmeter. In your case the element has died of old age (the resistance inside it failed), the other one isn't far behind.
I seriously doubt you can obtain even a second hand element, finding a new one is practically impossible since production of this line of models ended in 2001.
I think it's time to get a new one.

SOURCE: yes i have a westinghouse
When this occurs the problem is always with the hotplate controllers. Has this happened to all hotplates at the same time or has it occurred over a certain time period?
