Question about Frigidaire FEF365AS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

One of my burners is out, and I do not know how to get under the cooktop

I have a FEF365 range. One of the smooth electric cooktop surfaces (right front) does not heat. The solutions I have seen advise me to check the wiring to the element. I do not know how to lift the smooth cooktop surface in order to gain access to the element. The surface "appears" caulked to the steel frame. I do not see any obvious screws that would enable access. Assistance would be appreciated.

    Quick question, Fridgetech (and thank YOU for answering men and giving solid advice)... I will unplug the oven, but when you refer to removing the back, you mean the entire back of the oven? I haven't unplugged the range and slid it forward yet. It is fit between 2 cabinets, so I may have to get a helper to move it. I just wanted to clarify - the entire back of the oven (to see r1 and r1) or just a portion comes off? Again, many thanks....

You can check the element from the switch on the control panel. Unplug the oven, remove the back and put an ohm meter on r1 and r2 terminals to check resistance. If it shows open then the element is bad. If it shows resistance then replace the switch. To remove the top there should be screws under the front part of the top which you can see when you lower the door then just lift up. You won't be removing just the glass.

Feature not available


I had the same problem with a new kitchenaid range which they have agreed to replace after 1 month. Oven shut off a couple times while baking and feature not available displayed when trying to turn on oven again. I tried starting clean cycle and waiting a couple minutes for element to heat then cancelled clean cycle. Oven worked fine after this but this shouldnt be a solution, obviously something not wired right.

GE JBP64 Radiant Range - won't work


This is a very strange one, and you don't say how old this unit is or how long you have had problems with it, but most likely you have a poor electrical connection. Turn the breaker off and unplug the range. Remove the cover over the receptacle you just pulled the plug from and check all the electrical connections. If all OK, check the electrical connections where the cord attaches to the range. If still OK, inspect additional range and household wiring to range, including the connections right on the circuit breaker.

Can cast iron be used on GE glass top stoves?


Cast iron is not recommended due to the weight and its heat retention. Cast iron stays hot longer and, due to the weight, can damage the cooktop surface by scratching or cracking it. In your owner/operator manual there should be a section that defines what type of cookware that can be used. Aluminum and Copper heat rapidly, but can leave metal transfer marks. Stainless takes longer to heat and doesn't always heat evenly. Baked enamel, I believe, is the recommended cookware, because it is light weight, heats evenly and has a less risk of damaging the cooktop.

NOTE: References to any remarks about metal transfer marks made by cookware are DISCLAIMERS letting the consumer know that the POTENTIAL of marking the cooktop surface exists. This is NOT to imply that the cookware should not be used. There should be clear instructions that state how to remove the marks (if it occurs), what recommended cleaners are to be used and how to properly keep the cooktop surface clean. Spillage from milk or sugar substances can cause more damage than metal transfer marks.

Another item to note is the cookware bottom should be smooth and flat. If you sit a pan on the range surface and it does not sit evenly, you can potentially crack the cooktop surface due to uneven heating.

A warranty in most cases does not cover damage or breakage of the cooktop caused by the consumer using improper cookware or dropping something on it and breaking the surface.

Not trying to give you a lecture here, just trying to give you some advice just in case you weren't aware. I hope you find this information helpful.
