Model CGES387CS1 - both the baking and the broiler element wont come on, we checked the circuit breaker and thats ok. Can't visually see a break. We were cooking and then i noticed it wasnt working anymore, no smell, no noise....just silence...lol If one or the other element doesnt work, will both stop working? If there is a fuse, where would i find it? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated
When I turned on the oven, there was a flash from behind the clock, and then the circuit breaker blew. I remove the integrated circuit that is found behind the clock and part of it was melted. The part costs $320. I am wary replacing the part because I do not know the cause and am worried that the new one would blow too. If I get a technician in to replace it, it becomes his risk to replace the part, and so the total would be around $500 with tax. I am disappointed that this happened with a stove that is less than 5 years old and now wonder if is it worth it to repair.

Things to check : Thermostat, heating element and the circuit breaker for the stove at the power panel. If the stove has lights and the clock works, there is a 100 % chance the circuit breaker is at fault. There are 2 breakers with joined trip handles. One of those breakers has tripped without tripping the other which stops 20 volts but not 120 volts that the clock and light run off of. You can use a multimeter to check the element for continuity. If there is continuity then check for the presence of voltage at the element terminals. None indicates a bad thermostat.
Good Afternoon Arthur, thank
you for your post! If only the bake element works, but the broil element
does not then more than likely only the broiler element would need replacing.
Let's try resetting the oven by either flipping the household circuit breaker
off or by unplugging. It is important to wait roughly ten minutes and then turn
the appliance on. If both your bake and
broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring
communication. However, if the issue persists, it would be advisable to contact
a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control) or a potential
wiring failure. I am fairly confident that an
authorized service agent will be able to restore your appliance to its normal
operating condition. You can often locate a qualified service technician on the
Thanks for allowing me the
opportunity to assist you!
I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire range, model# FEF336BC, broiler and bake element not heating. I would give your range a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes.
After restoring power you will need to reset the clock. You will do this by entering in the time and pressing start.
Turn your oven on and if the elements are still not heating, I suggest either contacting the manufacturer or contacting your local authorized technician to diagnose your appliance. Hope this helps.
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.
do you have voltage? you have to have 240 volts if you only have 120 this might happen check your breaker. does your bake element work? if neither bake or broil work always check the breaker first and let me know
