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 push button for desired temp, but nothing is happening inside the oven. Neither heating element will heat.

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?

Hello Chris Hammond, thanks for your post!

Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a potential problem with your connector for your element within your Frigidaire wall oven. I would recommend reaching out to a professional technician for proper diagnosis repair to help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Best of luck! -Matt

Frigidaire double convection wall ovens, model GLEB30T9DSA ... The top oven will not heat, both the bottom element and the broiler.....


I have the Frigidaire PLEB30S8CCA single wall oven. About 3 months ago the baking element appeared to have gone out. We replaced it, but still didn't work. We ended up sending our control board off to a company named Corecentric. They fixed the problem and returned it to us. The oven has worked perfectly ever since. I searched extensively for a new one, but no one sold them anymore. I found Corecentric on Ebay. They were able to confirm over the phone that it was more than likely a control board issue. It cost about $130. My husband was able to do it himself by taking a couple before px and using them when reassembling it.

Are the top and bottom heating elements both supposed to heat? Only the bottom one is heating except when specifically set on "broil".


Most ovens with top and bottom elements have a multifunction control switch which enables the user to select a certain setting to suit their cooking. The control switch would normally have small pictures of the elements, fan forced function etc, to show what each setting does. Sometimes you may only require the bottom element working and other times you may want/need both.

Frigidaire wall over model number CGEB30S8AB1 is not heating. It is just the bottom bake element. I tried to replace the element but it is still not working. I can hear the relay clicking but it will...


I had this problem a year ago (both elements worked in top oven but only broil element worked in the lower of the dual ovens). I swapped elements around but the problem was still the bottom element bottom oven.

So I called the repairman. He replaced the relay board (Part #AP2127301) for the lower oven, and it worked again. Yippee.

But now a year later, I have the exact same problem. Lower element on lower oven is not working (Frigidaire you have got to be kidding)!

However this time I decided to take a look at the relay board myself, to at least save the expense of the repairman. I looked closely at the board and thought I saw a cold solder joint on relay K4. But just to be safe I touched up all the connections on all the relays with flux and a soldering iron.

Works perfectly again !!

Please if you try this, disconnect the power first. In fact if I had to tell you that, then just call somebody.

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.

I have 1950's Frigidaire electic oven by General Motors and the top heating element is broken. Where might I find a replacement?


Partselect.com 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.

Frigidaire GM deluxe electri dean (electric oven wall unit)


if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
