Question about Frigidaire FEB27S5A Electric Single Oven
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?
The oven controller is failed.

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.
