I assume it is the bake element. These are very easy to replace. make sure the power is off and you can access the screws from the oven cavity. remove the screws, pull gently on the element. If the wires are long enough you should be able to disconnect them or unscrew the wires from the terminals. reattach the wires to the new element. reinsert it back in place and there you go.

SOURCE: I have 1950's Frigidaire electic oven by General

Partselect.com had the oven element for my '60s Frigidaire GM stove. They have a good "narrow your search" feature that was helpful as the model number is no longer recognized.
Give them a try. Pull your bad element and measure it to get a match.

Old frigidaire wall oven model RBE-94N emitting strong odor & not baking


Hello - From what you have described it sounds like the unit has faulty elements or could possibly be experiencing a wiring issue with the EOC. Try resetting the oven by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately to properly diagnose the unit.

When trying to turn on the front right burner it doesn't heat at all what do I need to replace?


Check the wiring to the element, be careful shock hazard. On my electric range the wires were broken where the element plugs in socket. Socket kits are about $9.00 us If you have a volt meter unplug the element and turn the control on if you have voltage then replace the element. Thanks Tom

The elements will not heat up on bake.


The problem is the Bake heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

After using self-cleaning option, oven took a long time to reach temperature; then I wiggled the heating element and got popping sound and spark and now it doesn't work at all. Could I easily fix this by...


Question where did spark come from. Is element broken? If came out of back connection then connect and element should be replaced, If element is worn or broken then replace element, easy to fix yourself, just make sure you disconnect power for safety.

I need to replace the lower heating element in my older model oven. I think the serial number is 316071601. How do I remove the old element? I am clueless at repair but this should be relatively easy to do...


YES IT IS EASY BUT UNPLUG IT FIRST. REMOVE THE SCREWS FROM THE BACK WALL ABOVE THE ELEMENT AND SLOWLY PULL THE WIRES WITH THE ELEMENT THROUGH THE WALL ABOUT A INCH AND DISCONECT THEM FROM THE ELEMENT

My frigidaire oven won't heat. The burners work


You have two elements turn on the broil and see if the top element comes on if it does replace the bottom element.

Frigidaire GM deluxe electri dean (electric oven wall unit)


if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
