Re: Inoperative oven electric elements

It could be contact problems where elements are pushed into in oven. Elements are usually plugged into heavy copper lugs at the end of both element ends. should look at manual for this unit to see how to remove and check for blackened ends. {Make sure to unplug before any work}

Top and bottom heating element does not work on Frigidaire electric range ES300

Usually when both elements are not working and everything else is working fine, the problem is your OCU (oven control unit), commonly known to consumers as the clock.
The clock controls the oven and most times does not produce an error code when it fails.
You will need the actual model number from a sticker located on the oven frame when you open the bottom drawer, the sticker will have the model and serial number clearly listed.
Do a Google search for that model number and find the clock.
I've provided a link for what probably is the proper clock but without the full model number I can't say for sure:

We have a ceramic top electric Frigidaire model GLEF378CCS. Neither the broil or bake elements work in the oven. Stovetop elements are fine.

The bottom oven is heating up very slow.

If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.

The bake element is the bottom element in your oven. The life span of these elements can vary depending on the usage of your oven and the quality of the element. Anything electric has an unpredictable lifespan. Elements made on the same assembly line can vary greatly in how long they last. But when the element burns out it will need to be replaced to have your oven work properly.

The thing the fools many people is that many ovens will use the broil element to preheat the oven and then switch to using the baking element only. When this happens the oven will no longer heat and will cool down. The unit may sense this and activate the broil element again which will cause wild swings in temperature and also can cause food to burn on the top self or not bake properly.

If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contacts where the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.

If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

My stove SVE47100C the elements in the oven do not heat.I have replaced the computer panel a year ago as well as the element


If both of the oven elements stopped working at the same time, and the stove top elements work then the problem is most likely in the high limit fuse. It is the common component to both oven elements.

The control could be bad, but I would have someone test the high limit first. It should read 0 resistance if it is good.

The oven and broiler won't heat

It sounds like an incomplete circuit so be careful.

Now all this is coming form my assumption that your using a setting that has both elements on at 1 time. like Baking.

First the most common thing:A COMMON TIE POINT;
A main wire burned off will cause both elements to not heat at the same time. It could be at the back going to one element then jump off and go to the second element. Or some times the manufacturer runs the wiring to the front on the controls, and a 3rd area that they could have a common tie point is right where the power comes into the oven. When this usually happens you'll have ok burners on top and no power completed to the bottom.
It could be a switch that's bad and not allowing power to carry on to your oven controls at the thermostat.

If you need more help please get back to me and I'll post back. If this helped you figure it out or decide you need a tech please rate me as high as you can and thank you for using Fix Ya.

The link I'm providing provides the necessary steps to replace an element in your oven (if this is the case):

It is common when elements go bad on an electric range to have them trip a breaker such as yours. The element are a resistive coil that can vary in resistance depending on model and manufacturer. If you wish to take a measurement to be sure, first, UNPLUG the range and remove the back panel. The terminals for the BAKE and BROIL elements are visible in the rear, each having different colored wires leading to the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. The board will have a separate relay for each circuit (one for bake, and one for broil). It is less common for a relay to short out, but it does happen. If this were the case, the element would stay on conterminously. That's why I suspect you element to be the cause of the problem. Disconnect the leads from the BAKE element and perform a meter reading across the terminal connectors of the element on the Rx1 scale. The element should show continuity if good. If it doesn't, replace it. Now, on the same Rx1 scale, take a meter reading with one probe on the terminal and the other on the outer shell of the element. If it shows continuity this time, there is a grounding problem with the element, and it will also require replacement. I hope this leads you in the right direction. Let me know if you require further assistance. Good Luck to you.

PS I appreciate the kind words. You're right, I don't hear it enough. It makes my day when I can help someone and they appreciate the effort.

It is most likely the pop came from a relay on the control board if the elements checked ok but not getting power to them. This is fairly common on fridgidaire ranges. Replace the oven control. Usually the control overlay is sold as a separate piece.
