Question about Frigidaire PLEB30S8A Electric Single Oven
Replaced lower bake element and still does not work. Also switched the wires (yellow & black), but no luck (waited for appx 2 mins and only the upper element is working). Any other tests I could perform or other areas to look into?
ill aasumme that yo can see the elemnet in question, and its not a "hidden bake" elemnet located under the oven floor.. should be an easyrepair, with a little bit of patience. don trush shoudl only take 10 min anyway. TURN OFF POWER> LIVE WIRES TO ELEMENT AT ALL TIMES. REGARDLESS OF UNIT ON OR NOT!!! ther ewill be 2 screws along the bottom of the element holding the elemnt in the unit. after emoving carfully slide the old elemnt out a few inches, slowly pull out, for the wires are still attached to the back of elemnt and you want them to stay there you dont want them to disconnect and fall behind unit, (you will then need to remove the unit form the wall to access htem). so pull slowly espescially if you feel resistance in the wiring. after you getit out far enough simply unplug and plug in the new one reinstalll and you shoud be fine

sounds as if perhaps there has been a thermal overload(switch) tha has gone bad, refer to part number 119 on bothe the lower and upper oven for refernce , you should have continuity trough the switches.

I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.
318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer
Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.
The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.
To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.
NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.
