Question about Maytag MEC5430BDS Electric Cooktop

Elements not working properly

I have a Frigidaire flat stovetop with no access to the elements themselves.

Some of the elements work okay, others cycle in and out of heat settings. One seems to only work when its neighbor is on.

I'm pretty sure I need to replace a switch but don't know how to go about it. I don't have the manual for the unit and I don't know what the model number is.

The indicator light for the stovetop remains on despite all the knobs for each element in the off position. One of the elements is still getting power and heating slightly despite all controls in the


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I see that the indicator for your cooktop continues to remain on for your Frigidaire range. It sounds like it could be a potential issue with your switches or control panel. I would recommend a reset on your range which you can do by flipping the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Replaced element on frigidaire oven and oven still not working


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you've recently replaced the elements on your Frigidaire oven and that it is still not working. May I have your model number please? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is normally located in the storage drawer, on the right side if you have a range. If you own a wall-oven please check the front of the oven, on the left side, as you open the door. Also, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any strange functions or any other error codes prior to this issue? With this information I can better determine what may be causing the issue at hand. Thank you! - Z

Why would there be no heat from frigidair oven elements?


Make sure the oven timer is set properly, if its turned off, the oven will not go on. Also check if the oven has separate fuse, it may have blown.

There are normally two options for this. There's either an access panel at the bottom of the oven, or a panel underneath the oven. It's best to have a certified technician do it, to be sure that it's accessed without hurting the range.

My frigidaire fef368gch was working fine and then the oven just stopped baking. It will broil but not bake. What causes this and how do I fix it?


Good Morning Shari,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire range, model# FEF368GCH, and the bake element not working while the broil element is. I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 2-3 minutes. When power is restored, you will have to reset the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Start a bake cycle, and if you notice that the bake element is still not working, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Stove problem - outer cirlcle of an expandable element not working


You will need to call a professional these are very complicated and not easy to service, there are no fuses either. It will most likely be the element itself that has failed and they are not cheap. It also could be the switch too however it will take a person very familiar with schematics to properly diagnose it. Or you could just replace the element and switch yourself and that would most likely solve it.
