Most of the oven elements are very easy to replace. Depending on your brand and model the part may not be very expensive either. If you are sure it is the element then go buy the new one. To test your current ellement to see if it is in fact burnt out you can use a multimeter if you have one. You set the multimeter to Ohms and it should beep when you touch the two tester contacts together. Then touch each of the tester contacts to each contact on the element after you remove it and disconnect the wires from the oven. If the meter beeps the element is good if you get no beep then its bad. You dont have to do all that but it helps to keep from buying parts you didnt need to replace.

Frigidaire wall over model number CGEB30S8AB1 is not heating. It is just the bottom bake element. I tried to replace the element but it is still not working. I can hear the relay clicking but it will...


I had this problem a year ago (both elements worked in top oven but only broil element worked in the lower of the dual ovens). I swapped elements around but the problem was still the bottom element bottom oven.

So I called the repairman. He replaced the relay board (Part #AP2127301) for the lower oven, and it worked again. Yippee.

But now a year later, I have the exact same problem. Lower element on lower oven is not working (Frigidaire you have got to be kidding)!

However this time I decided to take a look at the relay board myself, to at least save the expense of the repairman. I looked closely at the board and thought I saw a cold solder joint on relay K4. But just to be safe I touched up all the connections on all the relays with flux and a soldering iron.

Works perfectly again !!

Please if you try this, disconnect the power first. In fact if I had to tell you that, then just call somebody.

This sounds like it blew the thermostat on the back of the lower oven. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. You will need to uninstall the unit and remove the back panel to acess. Check it for continuity if none replace. This is a fairly common failure due to the heat of the self cleaning. Here is a link to your part and diagrams are also available there AP3055316

Oven does not work,


Usually the problem is the heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at http://appliancehelponline.com/ovenelementvideo.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.
If the element checks good it probally blew the relay on the main control board you will know this if you have no power to the element.

Replaced heating element in oven but still remains on.


When the bake element shorted out, did the element make a big bang and perhaps even short against the metal bottom of your oven? I am suspecting the relay on your electronic oven control shorted and fused together. With this in mind, unplug the oven and gain access to the electronic control. Now trace the wire going from the electronic control to your lower bake element. Once you have figured which one it is, remove it from the electronic control. Tape it off with black electrical tape and plug the oven back in. At this pint, the element should not come on. Dis it come on or is it off. If off, replacing the electronic contro is the next step or if handly enough, you can replace the relay on the control...Let me know if I can help further.....

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
