This does happen from time to time when the element goes bad. I've witnessed many of them blow open in this manner. This can also occur if something spills over in your oven and leaks directly on to the element. You will require a replacement heating element to restore your oven feature. The following link explains the steps required to replace an electric oven heating element:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r469407-replacing_bake_or_broil_element_in

This is a very simple repair that usually isn't that expensive if you wish to repair yourself. You can order a replacement on line from any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deal. You will need to use a more complete model number (usually located on a nameplate around the oven door opening, lower drawer opening, or back of the operator console) to get better results for your parts search. The model number you provided only returns partial results.

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: In some circumstances, the element failure can cause the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board to fail. This is the control board on the operator console that controls all the oven features.

How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven


  • How to change lower element in DeLonghi Airstream Convectio Oven??

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

    Oven won't hold temperature.


    If oven is electric pleace check that the heating elements are ok, could be that only one or two elements could be the only heaters hence luck power to maintain temparature when open or gets too slow to preheat.

    Thermostat broken


    Good Morning a_t_pearson, this is Z. Thank you for your post! I understand that the thermostat is broken on your top Frigidaire oven; therefore I'm assuming that you have a double-wall oven. If so, please help me understand what you are referring to by thermostat? Is your oven not preheating or reaching desire temperature? Are you speaking about the bake and/or broil elements not heating? May I please have your model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located on the front of the oven, on the left side, as you open the door. With this information I can better address the issue at hand. Thank you!

    Do I leave the oven door open a little while broiling?


    Hi,
    Yes, it is a good idea to let it open just in the first posistion which gives it about a 3 or 4 inch opening at the top. This will hold enough heat in to broil your food but will let enough out so that the ovenwill not over heat and it will keep the burner on. Usually broiling times are not that long so this will not over heat your home or present any other dangers. Of course you still want to preheat the oven with the door cloded for best results.

    your bake element should get red during the preheat time and also if you leave the door open after it has preheated.
    if it is not that will cause your oven to not heat right.
    even if it looks ok, it could still be bad.
    unplug the oven and remove the bake element, then take it to your local parts house and they can check it for you.
    this is the most common problem, but it could be a problem with your oven control. try the element first.
