Re: broiling

Broiling in a recently manufactured electric oven is practically impossible, because the heat element turns itself off. So you must close the door and end up baking, In despair, I now broil meat in a small toaster oven that leaves the Infrared heating element on when the door is cracked open. The meat tastes much better than it does when cooked in my fancy wall oven. The only alternatives that are to use a gas oven or to barbecue the meat. It is very clear to me that electric oven designers and engineers, (especially for the fancier ones) never cook themselves. They probably can afford to go into expensive restaurants, where the French chef cooks meat with an open-door oven or a grill. :-(

Re: broiling

It really doesnt matter because the heat transfers directly onto the food therefore you can leave the door open or shut.

Closed door, pushed clean button, but door lock button keeps flashing and door won't lock.

Hello there and welcome to Fixya
This is a fairly common problem with self cleaning ovens
The problem normally is that the user has interrupted the clean cycle and the door is locked by default or the door lock assy has failed all together .
Now here is the thing these ovens have a built in memory module that stores a number of commands that the user has input in it like self clean or broil ect.ect so what you will have to do is to clear the memory and it is done like this.
First unplug the oven and do not touch it leave it sit for a minimum of 1 hour this will reset the memory module
Now only after the hour is up plug in the oven and you may hear a beep ora click if so great wait a few min then you can press the cancel button then try to open the door again.

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

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.

Removing oven door

Usually you open the door to spot where you leave it for broil. It should sort of stay in that position. Then just lift it out at that same angle.

Element Question

In most ovens, both elements are used during the warmup phase even when used for baking and after the set-temperature is reached, the lower element keeps it stable.
You should be able to detect which one is not working with your bare hand. Set the baking temperature for 250-300 degrees, leaving the oven door open. Hold your hand at different heights in the oven and you should be able to sense which element is working and which isn't within a couple of minutes.
If you still aren't certain, then try using the broil element only. If it is heating, then it's obviously OK and that would point to the bake (lower) element by default.
A final check could be done with an open door and hovering with your hand over the lower element; no heat = defective.

Frigidaire single oven broiling

The pan and it's grid is all you need, The broiler pan and it grid allow dripping grease to drain and be kept away from the high heat of the broiler. DO NOT use the pan without its grid. DO NOT cover the grid with foil. Some helpful info.. Preheating is suggested when searing rare steaks. Broil on side until the food is browned; turn and cook on the second side. Broiling times vary, so watch the food closely. Time not only depends on the distance from element, but on the thickness and aging of meat, fat content and doneness preferred. The first side usually requires a few minutes longer than second. BE SURE THE DOOR IS OPEN AN INCH OR TWO WHILE BROILING
