Oven not heating up

Hi Guys,

I have a frigidaire electic oven - all four top elements work - the top element in the oven seems to work - am getting no heat on the bottom element - when I try to preheat the oven - there is no alert on the oven when the oven is up to its proper tempature. I suspect its a faulty bottom element.

Thoughts/comments?

    I tried preheating the oven which usually takes about 10 mins...and when I went to touch the bottom element - I felt no heat - I also noticed it has now broken in the corner of the element - in other words - it's now split - when I put the broil function on - I can see the top element red hot and no heat on the bottom element - obviously the bottom element is at fault? If it is the bottom element - is it just a matter of unscrewing the nuts on the back plate of the element and replacing the element and it should fix the problem?

    Have the same issue with my stove- frigidaire - only about 1 yr old and minimal use. Going to see if replacing the element fixes it.

    While surface elements work fine, the oven will only get warm. the top broil element will not heat at all

I don't have a suggestion for your problem but maybe you can help with mine. I have a Kenmore electric oven/range and neither will produce heat. I've got power goin to the elements and the continuity across them is ok. Is there maybe a fuse in the control panel that may be blown or could it possibly be grounding out somewhere? It doesn't make sense to me that if the elements are ok and I've got power what could possibly be wrong. Any suggestions?

I am having a problem with my Frigidaire Oven


sounds like you're on the right track. Should work just fine after you replace the element. If it doesn't, order the electronic oven control and the overlay. without the overlay, you won't know what buttons to push

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. If you have a electric oven or a gas oven that won't heat or doesn't heat properly, here are some things you will need to check. The most likely cause of a oven not heating correctly is a defetive heating element. You have two types of heating elements in your oven. The bottom element(s) are the baking elements. The element(s) on the top are the broil elements. If you don't see the bright red glow from the element, chances are they are not working or not working correctly. If a heating element is bad, you need to replace the entire element. If your oven is warm and not correctly hot, one of the elements may be bad. In most ovens, when you preheat, both elements are used. This would make the oven to appear like it is working correctly but it is not. If the elements are not working, they might not be getting power. Test the wires to the elements with a voltage meter to make sure they are getting power before you decide to change them out. Many electrical ovens have a sensor that monitors the oven temperture. Ovens that have this sensor usually contain a digital display on the oven. The sensor could be defective. Those without the sensor use the basic mechanical system to control the oven temperature. You also want to check the thermostat sensing bulb. Make sure the bulb is good and has not come loose. Now, if you have a gas range oven that doesn't heat properly, first, you want to check your bake igniter. It may have burned out or it could be not working properly. It will be located near your burner. It is also possible that you are not getting gas to the burner. If so, it may be the gas safety valve or the igniter. You need to check your selector switch and thermostat as well. They may be defective. Always make sure you test the parts for power with a voltage meter of some type before you decide to change the part. If you have a part that appears to not be working, it may not be getting power because of a bad wire or broken connection. Thank you for your time and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Frigidaire range model #FEFLFSA, is the top element


When you say Top Element, I assume you mean the TOP OVEN ELEMENT, correct? You have bake, and broil? Bake is usually on the bottom, and broil is the top. In order to have the oven operate correctly, the top and bottom elements may come on at start, in order to do as you just said, "Preheat the oven". This will insure an even distribution of the heat in the oven box and result in better cooking expierences. I would not be alarmed or concerned if the top element came on for a short period to pre-heat in preparation for cooking. This is normal. If the top element stayed on, and did not shut off on bake after the pre-heat period, then I would say you have a control board problem. However, if it comes on and then goes out, except when you are broiling, then I would say that this is normal for your stove, and the pre-heat mode of operations. Your owners manual should advise you of this very process in the guide section to how to use the oven. I hope this helps and that all your cakes, pies, souffle's and the like are......delicious. I'm sure they are. I hope this helps and eases your concerns. Kindest regards, Slats.

Frigidaire Gallery stove, oven won't heat up (electric)


With the oven OFF, check the resistance of the bake element with a ohmmeter on the lowest scale. Rx1. If your reading is infinate, replace the element as most elements will open circuit when they burn out. They don't short out.

Top element in oven not working


This "top element" is your broil element. It will only get red when broil is selected.
