Electric range heating elements don't work at all for "bake" function, but "broil" function works (top element) & stovetop works.


The bake (bottom) element has probably burnt out. It's very easy and inexpensive to change them.

First order a new one. Get the range model number and search Google for the element part number. You will get a number of appliance parts suppliers. Check a couple of them for prices and record the part number. (A few suppliers use private part numbers. Most use the manufacturer's part number which will be the one which appears most frequently.)

You could then order from the least expensive supplier, but don't do so. Now search Amazon and eBay for that part number. You will find the part for less than half the price. Order one.

When it arrives, do this:
  1. Unplug the range or make SURE it is turned off.
  2. Remove the old element. It will be held in place with a single Phillips head screw or a hex-head screw. Use the right sized screwdriver or nut driver or socket-wrench as appropriate. The screw will be tight after years of baking. After removing the screw, pull and wiggle the element until it comes unplugged.
  3. Push the new element into the socket and secure it with the screw.
Turn on the oven and let it heat for 5-10 minutes before baking to burn off the bad-smelling coating on the new element.

Should we repair heat element, or buy a new oven?


It sounds like your element is electric. When food drips on that element it can cause a heat spot on the insulation around the electric element and eventually burns through. You can easily replace that element for about $50 - $60. It requires about three hand tools and 15 minutes to remove old one and install a new one. You should be in business for another 14 years if you clean any drippings on the element itself.

Frigidaire oven


Yes, that sounds like a relay on the oven control board. Here is the part to order that has a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy so you may want to order from them.

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.

RBD305PDS14 The top oven of this double oven is not baking or broiling. I replaced the baking element and still no go. Bottom oven is fine. Any suggestions?


Perhaps item number 37 has opened (died) killing the circuit to the elements from L-2. Looks like it $35 bucks.
Better verify it is bad before ordering. Now I know the following video ain't a bult in oven but I want you to see how important it is to turn off power to this oven before attempting repairs:

Bottom element broken


Mark,

There should be an element on the top, used for broiling, and then one on the bottom. If you look inside the oven carefully at this element and the top as well, should should be able to see a small blown out spot, or even a break.

If you do, turn off the range at the breaker box, and two screws should take it out. Take that and the model number of your stove to an appliance parts dealer. It won't be very expensive, although he may have to order it in for you.

If the above is not the case please write back.
