Your "Bake" element may not be working properly. It's the one in the bottom of the oven. Place a couple drops of vegetable oil on the bottom pan, and turn the oven on. During pre-heat, you should start to see those oil drops generate some smoke, IF the lower element is working properly. If it isn't - voila'.!! Problem is with the lower element / associated circuit.

Why won't the fan switch of after the oven is switch off


Not sure what fan your question refers to, but the fan that removes the heat from above the oven is controlled by a thermostat. It normally does not come on until the air temperature above the oven space is about 300 degrees and does not turn off until it is below 300 degrees.

Have a frigidaire wall oven that won't get to 400 degrees


Hello Bruce Hubley, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire wall oven will not heat up higher than 400 degrees. It may be a problem with your thermostat or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting power from your oven for roughly ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a professional come out to provide the proper repairs on your oven. Best of luck! -Matt

I am attempting to pre-heat oven to 400 degrees but oven heat will not raise above 100 degrees


Hi, Upon reading your post I immediately thought of a bad ignitor for the oven, but I am not sure whether you have a gas oven or a conventional electric range. So...If it is gas, I'd suggest replacing the ignitor for the hot surface ignition. If it's electric the bake element may be at fault although most range's use the broil in the preheat, so it should still climb up to 400, it would just take a really long time. Maybe you can clarify if it's electric or gas and I can try to move you forward from there. Macmarkus :)
