Thanks for the numbers.
The 628 in the model# tells us it was built by Frigidaire. The date code in the serial number is less clear because it is a different code than their current serial number designations that have been in use since the mid '80's. The style of the stove makes me think late '70's, I would guess '77 or '78 from the first 3 digits of the serial number.
The thermostat should be easy to check. If the broil function in the large oven works, the thermostat should be ok. It is a simple switch that should read closed across the contacts when you turn it to any temp setting when the oven is cool.

The power for the oven will also go through the selector switch which routes the power to different components depending on the setting.
The power also goes through switches in the clock that allow the timed bake and self clean functions to work.
If there is no wiring diagram in the stove, you will probably need one to diagnose the problem if the thermostat checks ok. I would suggest getting one while it is still available in case you need it in the future.
Once you have found out exactly which part you need, you should be able to use the Frigidaire part number from the parts list on the Sears site to track down a replacement part through a local appliance parts dealer. You may have to take the part to them to try to visually match up a replacement. Thermostats and selector switches are usually pretty generic in their operation between manufacturers, the problem lies in finding one that will mount to your control panel properly and that your knob will fit so that you can keep the same uniform look along your control panel.
Please post back with what you find out or if you have any questions.
Thanks/Mike

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire GAS stove. Oven doesn't work.

Hello,
Even though the ignitor glows it does not mean that it is working...sounds crazy but it is true... the ignitor needs to pull a certain amperage to let the gas valve open and as they get older they stop pulling enough current...
Check out this tip I wrote about this problem...

Replacing element in an old Chef Auto 600 Oven


Good news!
You probably can do this yourself.
Most appliance parts stores will "demand" you give them a model number, but if you find an appliance store that has a smarter older employee, he or she can probably give you the right one by seeing the old one.
Also know the element may be fine.
Older appliances sometimes have bad wires from old age.
When you take this apart, look carefully at the wires that are connected to the socket that the element plugs in to.
You may find the only thing wrong is a bad wire.
Know also that wire connectors for high heat things like stoves are sometimes made stainless steel, for the high heat.
God bless your efforts.

The grill gets hot but doesn't brown the food?


Normally, if a grill element fails, it just stops working. So if they are working then on full power, both elements should get red hot! If this is the case, all I suggest is that you try experimenting with different heights with the grill tray. And by the way, don't shut the door when you are grilling as this shuts the grill off!

My AEG oven does not heat up, nor does the grill work. The oven light and fan comes on when selected but the light located with the temperature control dial does not illuminate. This light normally...


DearDavidgale730,
I am supposing this oven/grille is electric, and is plugged in to a power source.
From your description, I'd say you have a serious problem and should no longer consider turning on the oven or the grille.
Having made that decision, take an electric meter and test the socket or wires that connect the stove/oven to the wall.
See if the current is flowing in both legs of the plug.
(Remember, two are "Hot", one or two are grounded.)
If not, correct the problem with the fuses or circuit breakers that are feeling the appliance.
If so, open the appliance up and test all circuits with that electric meter to determine the problem.
Often the problem may be a bad socket for the oven heater element, a bad element itself, or a burnt wire going to the element socket.
God bless your efforts.

Electric grill is intermittant or cuts out after 5/10 minutes


There are two overheat devices in the oven. One feeds the oven timer/programmer for the main oven and the other feeds the grill. If the cooling fan is running ok, then I would suspect it is the cutout feeding the grill elements that has perhaps with age is not working as it should do.

I need to remove the oven element. the plate that holds it appears to be riveted in place not screwed, unless screws are just worn (17 year old premier chef coordinate series).


These are screws you see. They are oxidized and the slots in the head are probably gone. Best approach is to spray with Pam (or equivalent) cooking oil, then use vise grips to remove the screws.

Oven not getting hot


If the fan is working, then the oven element has failed, you need to fit a new element., it is behind a removable cover at rear of oven compartment.

Stoves 720ef grill not working


The grills appear to be independant of each other. Does the oven still work and the oven light come on?

Depending on your answer it could be that the Top Oven Switch has gone faulty. The Grill Regulator and the Switch work together on the top oven. To get at both you will need to take the top of the oven off.

Simpson 2001 series upright electric stove oven does not get hot only gets warm


It could be the oven element (behind the cover plate in the back of the oven), or the fan not blowing the heat into the oven.
