Question about Frigidaire FEF366 Electric Kitchen Range
I recently went to bake and found that there is no power to either element in my oven. I baked a few weeks ago without incident. Pressing bake on the panel and setting a temp is all as usual, however, when it switches to preheat and actually turns on the oven (usually accompanied by a pronounced click from within the panel) nothing happens. I think the click is a large amperage relay within the panel that is no longer functioning. My ? is, do I have to replace the entire top panel or is the oven relay a separately replaceable part? Or if someone with more experience than myself knows I'm way off-base then by all means any help is appreciated.
Hello wallywhol the panel usually has to be replaced. My suggestion is to pull out the range, unplug, then remove the back panel. You can now trace the wiring from the elements to where they connect. If you have a meter, you can plug the range back in and check voltage. There should be between 208 to 240 volts at the elements. If there is a bake relay not on the board, then it can be replaced seperately.

Be sure you have 230 volts across the red and black wires at the terminal block the power cord attaches to. I suspect you have only one line to the range.
It is simpler to check a portion of the range first. Go to the relay board for the bake and broil elements. Check for incoming voltage between the red and black wires. You should have 230 volts all the time.
Set the oven control to bake at 350 degrees and check between the yellow and black wires that go to the bake element. You should have 230 volts. If you have 0 volts, check between the yellow wire that goes to the bake element and the black wire that goes to the terminal block of the range. If you have 230 volts here, the DLB relay on the relay board is bad. This will prevent bake and broil from working.
We can go through the relay board for the cooktop. I think it is best to eliminate one problem at a time.
