    any possibility that the thermostat for the oven is not working? The broiler element is not working either.

  • rickc231 Jun 22, 2009

    any thoughts on the thermostat item. Does any of the wiring affect both the heating element and the broiler

    I checked the wiring and it all tests good

Here are a list of things to check, check breaker both sides of 120v, take rear panel off to expose the wiring and check for shorted wires terminals...maybe when you installed the heater the terminal dropped off, check broiler..if this does not work might be receptical at rear. most electric range's have high limit thermostat..usually this is located under stove...check it for condinuity..if nothing replace. also check heater for condinuity..might be a bad heater even if new. one of these will be the culprit so hope this helps...if you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!

There is a big possibility that an internal wiring has been damaged due to heat causing a close connection hence blowing the fuse.This is probably why a new element did not make any difference.Sometimes wires overheat especially where they are exposed to high temperature areas and the outer insulation melts leaving live wires out.I would suggest you get a meter to test the wiring around..Hope this helps and do contact me if you need further questions.

    if there is any wiring that is damaged it will stop everything from working..I would check that first if I was you..before looking for anything else.If the thermostat was faulty then it should have worked once you replace the heating element..test the thermostat with a meter if you want,just to be sure,work out which is quicker to start with...

My frigidaire gallery series oven made a popping noise while heating up dinner in oven and now the whole oven is not working


Hello jnjpelli - Try resetting the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart the unit. If the oven does not turned on, then more than likely there seems to be a power supply issue. Also try checking the breaker and the power connections located on the back of the range. If any of these suggestions prove to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues

Frigidaire gallery stove, oven not working,


Morison,
The same thing happened to me about a week ago. I was preheating our electric oven, heard a very loud bang/pop. Checked and the oven had PF (power failure) I went downstairs and the breaker was tripped. Came back upstairs and to look at stove, the burners are working fine so I continued to preheat oven after a half an hour the oven was only slightly warm. Did you ever find out what was wrong?

After a "pop" - the oven no longer works


You should have thrown the breaker before moving the oven. The element likely shorted and blew the breaker. make sure the breaker is off. replace the element and plug it back in and reset the breaker.

Element blew in oven; now stove doesn't work....


Sounds like the loose oven element caused a short circuit, which may have fried a wire inside the range. Or, it may have tripped the circuit breaker (or blown the fuse) for the range circuit. Check your electrical panel. If the circuit is open, don't reset it until you've removed the remnants of the oven element.

Oven will not heat


Although I am not familiar with this oven, living in the u/k, I would say that without any doubt the oven element(s) have failed, more so if the fan is working, so I would have hesitation that you replace the suspect element (s)..
Plz let me know how you get on.Thanks.
