New oven element not heating

Frigidaire model PLEF398DC. Lower oven element burned completely through. I replaced the burned out element and now only the top element works. Also, top element will not shut off, even once oven is preheated. Seems dangerous. Anyone have any ideas?

    Hi, The stove worked fine until the lower element burned completely through. Actually had a fire in the oven at the burn point. When I installed the new lower element the wires were all clean and shinny and everything looked good. But now it won't heat and the broiler element won't shut off.

This sounds like a bad temperature probe. I'm not familiar with your specific model, but if the temperature probe isn't functioning in conjunction with the rheostat (oven temperature control), the elements will never shut off. As for the lower element, there is probably corrosion or oxidation that is not allowing a good electrical contact, but other wiring could be burned up or bad due to excessive heat. This would require "ohming out" the wires, or looking for an overheated wire or connector, which will require some disassembly, or service. Try cleaning up the connectors as much as you can, and see if an appliance shop can test your temperature probe to determine if it's bad. There is also the possibility of the top element control switch being bad, but my first thought would be the temperature probe. Good luck, hope this helps.

I have GE model#JKP45WOP2WG double oven wall unit. Lower oven isn't heating up properly. Bottom of lower oven doesn't seem as hot as the top of the oven... replaced oven sensor, not


Most double wall ovens are technically two separate oven boxes. The lower oven box has its bake, boil elements, high limit thermostat and ofcourse its own oven sensor. If the lower oven box boil is working good and less heat on bake feature may suggest that the bake element is burned out and only getting preheated with boil element. Just a suggestion here

Whirlpool gold double oven model #gbd307pdb. upper oven lower heating element burned out. replace lower element. it does not get hot. upper element heats up. control board works. is this the thermos


You will have to see if there is power to the element. It is possible that the relay contacts burned when the element burned out. There is a fusable link but this would shut down both the top and bottom elements. If the relay is burned out the control board will need replacing or rebuilding.

Frigidaire Model plef398dc oven not working


http://www.partselect.com/Schematics/Frigidaire/WRX3CTC2.gif
look at part number 84. more than likely when the element arced over it blew this as well. check the wiring, since your going to have to pull the oven out to get to this part. check it for continuity to see if its good or not.

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.

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290


The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Oven heats, but does not get to correct temperature as fast as it did, lower oven heats OK . When the pre-heat time is complete, oven was still 100 degrees less than designated.


when you first turn it on both elements should come on(your top element may be burned out)if so turn breakers off just take out the screws on the mounting plate pull out and take wires off and replace
