Re: 1 coil heats, the other 3 don't

Take a flashlight & look into the receptical where the burners plug in. If it looks burned up, then you need to replace the recepticals(part #330031). If the burner prongs are burnt looking, they need to be filed clean or replace the burners too. If you plug burnt burner ends into a new receptical, it will burn the receptical in no time. Try spreading the prongs on the burners before plugging them back in to make a tighter contact.

Frigidaire FPEF3081MF Electric Range - oven doesn't heat up properly

It sounds like the heating coil is bad - find your manual and see how to remove the coil, and take it with you to a real appliance store and ask then to check the coil. If its bad, they should be able to get you a new coil.

Open the oven door and look for screws that hold the cook top down. Take those out and the cook top lifts off from the front. Make sure that you unplug it first. Then you can see the coil that is not heating. IT could be the wires, connector or the coil itself that is bad.

Each burner has its own switch. I suspect your switch on that burner is bad or going bad. Conracts probably burring up from the constant arcing associated with closing and opening. Here is how it works:

First off, check to see if it is still under warranty. You will need the Model #, and Serial # before you talk to the factory. The unit is either single phase (2 separate 120v circuits) or 3 phase, (3 separate 120v circuits) To check voltage properly you CANNOT check voltage to ground. You have to check wire to wire. you will get a reading of 208, or 240 volt. On a 3 phase, you need to check all 3 wires to each other, and MUST come up with either 208, or 240v between ALL wires.

Lower heating element will not heat up

check the element for continuity if there is continuty on the element then you need to replace the electronic control. you can also take the two wire from the bake element and move them up to the broiler element and try to turn on the broiler using the bake button this will confirm bad board or element.
make sure to unplug the unit will doing the wire change and then plug it back in
