Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a Fridgedaire CFEF372EC range and my right front surface element (dual) wont come on. the light comes on but no heat. i was told that it was the SE switch so i replaced it but that didn't solve the problem. i checked the element by putting an ohm meter on the terminals of the element assembly underneath the cooktop. not sure what to do now. Could it be the is it the logic board?
This is from AppliancePartsPros.com:
"Take off the cover to your terminal block (where the plug wire connects) and use a multimeter to check for the correct voltage to the unit. Red to white and black to white should be 120vac. Black to red should be 240vac. Your L1 circuit (the black one) is dead so when you turn on one of the burners, the L2 circuit feeds into the L1 illuminating the display. It may be a loose connection at the block or inside the outlet. Sometimes it is the breaker that is bad. Try tripping them closed then back on a few times in case one has stuck open. Your range should work fine, once it has the proper voltage."
Can't vouch for it but, if you've already checked the control and the element, this sounds reasonable. Hope it helps.

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.

What holds the spring assembly onto the bar assembly is just two small prongs. Use a pliers on the end that protrudes through the bar, squeezing the prongs together, and it should come out fairly easily.

SOURCE: replacing a radiant element on
yea sounds like an issue for sure, nut not with the element but hte switches instead, theres a short in one or the other( most likely the dual switch) i wouls reccomend replacing both the switches, the elemenst should be fine.

similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
