Bake and broil isn't working. Traced power to the elements and they are getting power. Could it be something that is stopping the elements from working other than bad elements.


It would be very rare for both elements to be bad at the same time. Many times there is a thermal fuse in the circuit that will shut off one side of the power to the elements. This would prevent the elements from energizing in regular bake and broil as well as self clean. If it is only in self clean then there is a swicth possibly in the latch that is preventing the self clean from working.

Electric range surface elements not working after self clean cycle.


It sounds like it is broken. You can bypass it by connecting the 2 wires together. This should be fine until you replace it. They aren't that expensive.

Oven won't heat up


Hello Michele Smith - If neither elements do not heat but the top of the unit works, then they can possibly be faulty elements or connection. However, if you are experiencing other performance difficulties, then you may have a bad control board that needs to be replaced. Consult a professional for an accurate diagnosis.

Frigidaire oven won't heat past 355


Contact a professional to have the unit diagnosed for repairs. Sounds like the heating elements are either faulty or the main control board won't allow the unit to heat up correctly.

Oven will not heat up.


If the oven won't heat, did you check both the bake and broil element? If both are not working correctly you are going to have a control board issue most likely. If only one works, then the other should just have to be replaced.

Broil element won't come on.


1. Cut power to the stove by unplugging or switching off at the mains.
2. Remove broil element and inspect for burnt or melted places, if you have multimeter, then check it for continuity, it shouldn't have more than about10 ohms resistance. Burnt-out element is easily replaced.
3. If element is good, then check for voltage at element terminals, it should be 220 volt AC ( with caution, after turning power back on and setting oven to broil).
4. If all above checks out, then the problem will require disassembling the appliance to investigate thermostat issues, relay, etc. It would be at this point that I would strongly consider putting in a service call!

On Frigidaire Self-Cleaning Range, bottom oven element does not work while top element does; bake relay problem?


Sounds like the bake element is out. Remove it and test it for continuity. If you need further assistance please feel free to contact me.

I have a Whirlpool electric build in oven with self-cleaning feature. It is about 8 years old and we just used the self-cleaning feature for the first time last week. The oven was not that dirty, but...


Your thermal fuse or TOD mounted to the back of the oven went out during the self clean,it shuts off the power to the elements.
 The oven must be removed from the wall to change this.

Self-clean not cleaning


I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
