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.

    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.

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?

Oven doesn't reach temperature setting

It could be the plug/receptacle that the element plugs into. It could also be that the elements have separate thermostats and that the one for the lower element is bad. If you can post the model number I can look at the electrical schematic and know for sure if it has one or two thermostats.

I have 1950's Frigidaire electic oven by General Motors and the top heating element is broken. Where might I find a replacement? had the oven element for my '60s Frigidaire GM stove. They have a good "narrow your search" feature that was helpful as the model number is no longer recognized.
Give them a try. Pull your bad element and measure it to get a match.
