Question about Kitchen Ranges
Frigidaire Electric Range, works normally except one of the surface units does not heat.
Problem started when turning on one surface element (the large 8” element in the back left side as one faces the range). Heard a pop and saw a spark between the element terminal end and the terminal plug. Turned off. All other surface elements are working and heat can be controled. Both ovens are working and can control heat. Digital control panel is functional.
The surface element that sparked was damaged and the wiring near the terminal plug looked discolored and burnt. Surface element would not heat up.
Installed new terminal plug and surface element. Surface element would not heat up. Tested new surface element by switching it to the working terminal and it works.
Attempted again. Element did heat up on low #1 setting, moved it to high and got red hot. Lowered #3 and element seemed to stay red hot. Turned on another element to determined how long it should take to cool down. As soon as I did that the problem element began to cool. Turned both elements off and let completely cool.
Third attempt (an hour later). Turned heat to #3 setting nothing happened.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
