Burner won't shut down

8'' heating element on frigidaire glasstop model #fefl79fcb will not shut off. It stays red hot but every min or so will go dark then come back on.
Unplugged stove and it shut off. Plugged it back in, burner came on. I left stove off for several minutes after that, plugged it back on and burner stayed off. I know its a switch, but on the parts list it's showing a switch and then an infinite switch.

SOURCE: BURNER IGNITION WILL NOT TURN OFF.

One of the switches is stuck,causing circuit to 'think' that you're trying to light a burner. Give each control knob a good 'tap' with the back of a screw driver.If that doesn't free it up, we will have to find the stuck
switch

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If your range/oven doesn't seem to work at all, check these:
Fuse/circuit breaker
Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. If even a light won’t turn on then check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.
Main wiring
Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to.
Range/oven wiring
There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

SOURCE: Hotpoint Glasstop Stove - Burner turns on by itself

I have a GE stove which I purchased in 2004, and it is doing the same. I heard beeping coming from the kitchen in the middle of the night . I went to the kitchen and the oven was on by itself. I have been unplugging it when not using it. Maybe this could be a recall.

Oven will not shut off


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire oven will not turn off. I also see that when you turn it off, the blower and heating element, stay on. The blower will stay on to help cool down the oven, but the heating element should turn off. I see that you have to turn your oven off at the circuit breaker. I suggest contacting your local authorized dealer for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine why your oven will not turn off. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Temperature when using frigidare oven, keeps getting hotter and does not cool down


Good Afternoon Andrea,

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

All 4 burners do not heat up very well or not in red color


I would CAREFULLY investigate that the electrical power is connected correctely. MAYBE you only have 120 instead of 240 on the one that doesn't heat well... OR maybe the element is defective.

If you aren't adept at this you might get a service person to check it out as the voltages are lethal.

The elements should get to a dull red color if correct.

Last night, we were using our Frigidaire oven to heat some salmon. My wife openned the oven door and there was a bright flash with sparks and a crackling noise, and a 1/2 inch portion of the element caught...


Kill the power to the stove. L2 is always hot to the element. If it welded itself to the frame whats left of the element stays hot. Easy fix but power needs to be OFF

Slow oven lighting....bakes for 20 minutes than stops heating


Hi, The oven should ignite within 20 to 30 seconds. The most common problem is that the ignitor gets weak and will not open the gas valve like it should. This would be my first part to change.

My hot light stays on and every thing is cool to touch


yes , hopefully you have a seperate indicator light for each of the elemnts, makes it easier to see which has gone bad, but if yo know which burner you were usins at time of incident then you can assume that it was that elemnet. replacement of the elemnt is required, for a it has a short in the theremistor, not a hazard, more of an inconvience, so i would have it taken careof but no need to rush its not an emergency, its only an faulty indicator, the elmnt is not actually heating

The right front burner won't heat


The switch probably failed. Remove power. Take off the top rear cover and inspect the switch for signs of discoloration (burned or brown areas). If looks OK then maybe the element failed.
