Frigidaire lower element not working

We have a Frigidaire Gallery range - 11 years old. A breaker blew when set to self clean and the lower element would not heat.

We tested the lower element and it is not broken. The problem appears to be a "coil" on the circuit board that sends current to the lower element. Question: Can the "coil" piece on the circuit board be replaced or will it be necessary to replace the whole board?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Re: Frigidaire lower element not working

Does the element have continuity??Did you do an amp reading with the element connected?? Do you have voltage at the element terminals??If you have voltage at the element and you don't read amps when unit is on then it's the element.If it's the coil?The board should be replaced.Local appliance store may have it or can order it.

Self cleaning mode had failure. Cleared by flipping breaker. Now runs bake/ convection mode with broiler at 600 + degrees and lower oven operates under temperature. I think temperature sensor error

Hello Pamela, thanks for your post!

From my understanding your Frigidaire range had an issue when it was in self-cleaning mode. It sounds like your thermostat or control panel may need to be replaced. I would suggest seeking help from a professional technician this will help you to avoid any unnecessary part purchases or improper disassembly of your range. Hopefully this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Frigidaire electric stove does not work at all

First check the breakers at your house's breaker box. A tripped breaker will be a little bit away from on. Push it all the way off, and then back on. If it trips again, call an electrician.

My older model electric hotpoint selfcleaing range, lower oven self cleaning function is not working. what could be wrong, maybe i didn't set a control knob correctly, don't have a maual for t

Back to the fifties! If the lower oven cooks normally, the heating element probably is OK. For self cleaning the normal temperature setting is bypassed and the heating element is set to a substantially higher level. Your oven may be unable to self clean because operation of the knob may not actually start the cycle. The thermostat could need replacing even though normal cooking is OK.

Oven door won't open after self-cleaning. Open it

Unplug the range.
Remove the back panel.
Look for the long rod going from the back to the front of the oven.
Manually push on this rod to unlock the door.
