Question about Frigidaire FEF352 Electric Kitchen Range
When using Broil, it is normal for only the top element to work and it depends on the oven whether both should be on or not for baking but typically, baking does not use the upper element otherwise it could burn baked goods.
If setting the temperature higher than 350 does not cause the lower element to turn on, then it's likely that the thermostat has failed and can no longer respond to the temperature set.
The fact that both elements work under some conditions means that both of the heater elements are working at least some of the time. Because of the primitive nature of the elements, it isn't possible for them to just become 'weak' but they can interrupt themselves if there is a break in the resistance element but you could only separate the two possibilities by measuring the hot coil and that would be difficult unless you can pull the range out and access the AC feed lines that go to the element. Obviously, the power would have to be disconnected and the measurement done quickly so the element didn't have time to cool and regain continuity.

Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.

Have you checked the circuit breaker? If it's not lined up with the "on" breakers, move it to the completely "off" position then move it to the "on" position. If it keeps flipping the breaker off, call an appliance repair person. Check the internet for reviews of your local companies to find the best one.
