Question about Verona FSGE648FS Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range
The bottom heating element in the small oven is burned out. How do I remove the old one and install the new. Details please.It is a Verona dual oven Model FSGE648F, Product # 555601, Serial 028.
An electric oven is a baking chamber. It's either part of an electric range or a standalone appliance without the cooktop. It is a 240/120-volt circuit—240 volts for the heating elements and 120 volts for the accessories. A thermostat senses and regulates oven temperature. Time and temperatures are regulated by an electric timer motor or by a digital controller.electric ovens have two heating elements, the main one on the bottom of the chamber and another one on the top, typically used for broiling.
Test and replace an oven element:
1.UNPLUG the range and remove the rear panel.Dangerous voltages are still present with the range turned off.The rear panel is in close proximity to the input power terminal block & shock hazard and/or equipment hazard can exist.Remove the series of screws around the perimeter of the panel.
2.Locate and disconnect the terminal lead wires from the element.Color coding may differ between manufacturers, so make sure you mark or label the wires as you remove them.If replacing both elements, do so one at a time to avoid confusion.
3.Open the oven door and remove (if possible). Refer to your owner’s manual to see if there are instructions on how to remove the oven door. Some have spring-loaded locking hinges, while others just lift out. If you cannot remove the oven door, use care not to lean on the door or put too much weight on it. This can cause damage to the door hinges or cause the hinge springs to come loose.
4.Remove the oven racks, and remove the oven pan (if required – some elements are fully exposed, some have pan covers). There are usually two screws either in the back or front of the oven holding the pan in place.
5.The element will be mounted directly to the back of the oven wall, and/or to the bottom/top of the oven wall.Remove the mounting screws and remove old element from oven.
6.Install new element by carefully feeding the terminal leads through the oven wall first. Reinsert all mounting screws.
7.From the back of the range, reconnect the terminal wires.
8.Plug range in, turn oven/boiler on, and perform a visual test of the heating element to ensure it is working properly.Turn oven/broiler off and allow sufficient time to cool. If the oven has only been on for a minute or so, the cool down period will be brief.NOTE: Stand clear of any exposed wiring with rear panel removed.
9.UNPLUG range once again and re-install rear panel ensuring the terminal wires are NOT touching the panel.
10.Reinstall the oven pan and racks. Reinstall door if necessary.
NOTES:Prices vary between models and manufacturers, but most elements are in the $20-$40 range.There is a difference between the BROIL and BAKE elements in that they are usually different wattage ratings and are shaped differently.They should not be considered interchangeable.
