Hello Henry Cmiel,

Sounds like a bit more of a challenge
than you bargained for...

Make sure you have the breakers turned off
before you attempt to do any serious fishing around .

Get your best light source and look into the whole
the wire retreated through...

Sometimes it just pulled back out of sight...
If you can see it... you might be able to reach
inside and pull it back out with some narrow
FORCEPTS (tweezers)...

Else you are looking at dismounting the oven
from it's enclosure... pulling it out & away from the wall.

Opening the back panel and pushing the wire back
through the it RETREATED from.

To protect that from happening again... use and
ordinary binder clip... alligator clip to hold the
WIRES before moving ANYTHING ELSE.

Open the back and push the loose wires where they belong...
(clip them in place).

SOURCE: Electric Oven doen't heat

cdkd, there should be a TC0, on the back of the oven. Thermal cut out. You want to check to see if it is open. You will have to pull the oven out enough that you can remove the back panel cover and check it. The lower and upper oven should have one. It's a very cheap part to replace. If this TCO fails, no heat. Check this first before buying a new board. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Frigidaire double oven has one element not working in each oven

sounds as if perhaps there has been a thermal overload(switch) tha has gone bad, refer to part number 119 on bothe the lower and upper oven for refernce , you should have continuity trough the switches.

SOURCE: fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work

I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.

318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer
318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer

Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.

The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.

To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.

NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.

SOURCE: Oven doesn't reach temperature setting

It could be the plug/receptacle that the element plugs into. It could also be that the elements have separate thermostats and that the one for the lower element is bad. If you can post the model number I can look at the electrical schematic and know for sure if it has one or two thermostats.

Dacor bottom oven not heating


I have a DACOR double electric oven model ECD230SCH. the top oven lower element went out 1 and 1/2 years ago, but the top element broiler works. Yesterday the bottom oven did the same thing- bottom element not working along with convection. Pulled off doors and cut breaker. Checked thermal switch on top off oven- closed good. Pull out element and Ohm'ed out- good. Now pulled over and out oven top panel to get to the control boards. Found a nice set of schematics for the over control boards and electronics. Sat down and pin-pointed both relays that supply power to upper and lower oven "lower" heating elements. these are on 2 different boards- upper over relays on bigger board on the left with the transformer. Lower oven on the right smaller board. Hardest pain in the rear was just getting the little plastic stand offs to push back through the board to get it off. Finally got it off and inspected board. Low and behold the relay I pin-pointed had a burn/open connection on the solder joint. Re-soldered tested oven and lower oven lower heat element works now! Went to the next board and got that off and same exact problem on the rely for the top oven lower element. Re-solder and test- good!! Put everything together and ran over to 350 on top and lower and back to normal. Wife very happy she did not have to pay a repair man big bucks to swap out the control boards- would have had to replace both.

I have a degree in electronic technology so as a technician for many years did low and high voltage component level repairs. But pretty easy and you can visually see the open solder joint on the back of the board at the relay leg.

GLEB30T8CSA upper oven baking element has no power


It may be you have a bad element. If you remove it and have a volt meter you could check a the socket for power. Also if the upper and lower elements are the same change the working one to the upper oven and see if it works. If it does you need to purchase a new element. If there is no power to the upper oven you may have a bad control ora broken wire behind the panel. I would advise you to turn off the power to the oven before pulling or changing any componets.

I have a Thermodor SCD302ZP Double Convention Oven. Does the lower heating element come out from the front of oven or do you need to gain access to rear in order to test/replace it? I removed the...


that model number doesn't come up.first make sure the power is off to the machine,you have 240 volts going to that element,all the thermodor ovens i worked on come out from the front,there should be two phillips screws holding it in place,remove the screws and pull the element forwards,some of them you have to lift the element up the end that goes through the wall is bent up so the wires don't hit the metal wall behind it.on some the wires are very short so don't be surprised if they pop into the hole on you,try to hold it with a needle nose,have the other element in there and stick the wire right on the new element so you don't loose the wire into the hole,if that happens you might have to pull the oven and remove the back panel.good luck and i hope this helps you

I turned the bottom oven on and it was like a small lighting bolt went off, it tripped the fuse box to the house and now only the top oven works?


You will probably find that the element for the lower oven has expired. They sometimes do go in a shower of sparks. I once had an element on a hob explode in my face and a small lump of red hot metal flew up and just missed me.
It is easy to get to the circulatin fan and element, you just have to remove the 4 self tapping screws in each corner of the fan/element cover for the cover to come off. If the element has burnt out as you say you should see some evidence of burn marks/holes on the element.
The bad news is that you will have to take the whole oven out of the housing to remove its top and back to gain access to the element retaining nuts and the wiring to unclip/reclip it.
Try espares for a replacement element and if it was a major bang when it went, you should consider replacing the thermostat as well as this is often damaged by the element going.
(The thermostat is the long thin metal rod in the top right hand corner of the oven and is connected to the control by a very thin fragile pice of wire - be careful)!

The wire that connects the heating broke off on


You're going to have to pull the walloven and take off the back panel. And probably replace the high temp terminal on the wire. You may want to pay a pro for this. You mess up the cabinet it's your problem but a reputable service company has experience and insurance and the right equipment to remove the oven

Element wires fell behind oven


I just had the same problem with our Electrolux wall oven. I don't expect you are still having problems 3 years later, but thought I would post for the benefit of anyone else with this issue.

Firstly, turn your power off. I then had to unscrew two screws on each side of the oven door which allowed the oven shell to come forward. You should then see the power cord which you can remove from the powerpoint. If your oven is hard-wired in, then I would definitely call an electrician.

Once I removed the oven, I placed it on the floor and unscrewed a few screws that held the top and back casing on. After removing the casing, you can see the wiring and you just need to push the fallen wire back through.

Before you put the casing back on, you could replace your element just in case the wire falls through again.
