Frigidaire stove model CFEF372EC3 Ser #NF60720192


Things to check : Thermostat, heating element and the circuit breaker for the stove at the power panel. If the stove has lights and the clock works, there is a 100 % chance the circuit breaker is at fault. There are 2 breakers with joined trip handles. One of those breakers has tripped without tripping the other which stops 20 volts but not 120 volts that the clock and light run off of. You can use a multimeter to check the element for continuity. If there is continuity then check for the presence of voltage at the element terminals. None indicates a bad thermostat.

Top element not working it test ok what can i check


Are we talking about the broil element or a surface element. If it's a surface element, and you're sure the element is okay, then it must be the control (called an infinite switch).

Magic Chef cgr3765adc, oven will not turn off. If the unit is plugged in the oven ignites and would continue heating unless disconnected from electricity.


follow this test and fix it. God bless you

Bake Element

If the oven won't turn on, check the bake element. The bake element is a black tube near the bottom of the oven about as thick as a pencil. When it is operating normally, the bake element will glow red hot. If the oven won't turn on the bake element may have burned out. It is often obvious to see where the bake element has shorted out because there will be a hole or break in the element. If the bake element has burnt out or shorted it should be replaced.





Oven Igniter

Even though the oven igniter may be glowing, it may be too weak to allow the gas valve to open. If the oven won't turn on and the oven igniter glows for more than 90 seconds without igniting the gas flame, the oven igniter should be replaced. This is the most common part that fails when the oven won't turn on.




Broil Element

If the oven won't turn on, check the broil element. The broil element is a black tube near the top of the oven about as thick as a pencil. When it is operating normally, the broil element will glow red hot. If the oven won't turn on the broil element may have burned out and caused something else to short out. It is often obvious to see where the broil element has burned out because there will be a hole in the element or blisters on the outside of the element. Test the broil element using an Ohm meter. If it has continuity it's OK. If not, it should be replaced.





Incoming Power Problem

Although not as common, if the oven won't turn on it is possible that the appliance is not receiving proper voltage. Electric ovens require 220 volts of alternating current. If for some reason the appliance is receiving significantly less, the oven won't turn on. Check for proper voltage using a volt meter at the socket where the appliance plugs in.


Oven Control Board

The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn on the problem is usually with the heating components. However, if the oven control board is bad, it might not send voltage to the heating components. To determine why the oven won't turn on, first test the simpler components in the circuit. The oven control board usually can't be tested and will have to be replaced if it is defective.





Thermal Fuse

Although not as common, if the oven won't turn on the thermal fuse may have blown. The thermal fuse is designed to protect the appliance and help to prevent a fire. If the oven gets too hot, this fuse trips. The thermal fuse is not resettable and will have to be replaced. It can be checked for continuity. If it has continuity, it's OK. Not all ovens have a thermal fuse.






Relay Board

If the oven won't turn on and the appliance is equipped with an oven relay board, one of the relays on the board may have failed. Normally the oven relays are located on the main clock control board and not on a separate oven relay board. If the oven won't turn on it is more likely that the cause is one of the more common problems listed for the model. If the other, more common problems have been checked and Your oven has a relay board, it may need to be replaced. Oven relay boards are not repairable.





Oven Thermostat

If the oven won't turn on, the oven thermostat might be defective. Although this is not as common as other components, the oven thermostat sometimes fails completely and does not allow current to pass through. After checking other, more common components, consider replacing the oven thermostat.





Heat Selector Switch

If the oven won't turn on, be sure the heat selector switch is set to the right position. The heat selector switch completes the circuit to either send voltage to the bake or broil circuit. If the oven won't turn on, the heat selector switch might also be defective, although this is not very common. The heat selector switch is not repairable, if it is defective it will need to be replaced.





Oven Safety Valve

The oven safety valve works with the oven igniter to provide gas to the burner. If the oven won't turn on it is possible that the oven safety valve is defective. However, this is very rare. Most often, the oven igniter is too weak to allow the oven safety valve to open. If the oven won't turn on, check the igniter first.





Oven Valve and Pressure Regulator

If the gas oven won't turn on the oven valve and pressure regulator might be at fault. This is not common. Very often people misdiagnose a defective oven valve and pressure regulator when the oven won't turn on However, this is almost never the cause. Look at other, more common components before replacing these.

Kenmore electric range 790.91011200 When set in broil mode the broil element does not get hot but the bake element does. Should I replace the broil element?


yes. you can do a simple continuity test to be sure (on the broil) element, but you're gonna spend at least 20 dollars on a volt/ohm meter. if you have one already, you're in luck. just remove the element and test the prongs for continuity (usually setting RX1). more than likely the element just needs to be replaced

When the broil function is off, check for continuity between the broiler relay output terminals. If there is no continuity, check for an external short. If there is continuity when the broiler is supposed to be off, you need to replace or repair the board.You can get your old board repaired at appliancetimers.com.

The oven and broiler will not work. I replaced the oven heating element to no avail. I did here a pop before and it tripped the breaker. What could it be?


send the model number and brand name,you should check the parts with a meter so you don't go out and start buying parts and changing them when they are still good.if you heard a pop most of the time either the bake or broil element did break,when you are baking the broil element doe heat up,did you check the broil element?if not unplug the stove,pull out the broil element and with a meter check for continuity,if both elements are good the clock could be bad or a wire shorted but the only way to tell is by getting in there with a meter and start checking parts and wires,if you heard a pop something did either short out or a part is cooked,also check where the cord connects to the machine

What is the complete model # from the sticker on the range? I will need that so I can look into this for you. I will say that I have seen, in several cases, where the oven control gets a surge and fries after an element has broken.
