Question about Frigidaire GLEB27S7A Electric Single Oven

Open Question

We have a Frigidair model GLEB27S7CSB wall oven where the broiler element is inoperative. I removed the element and tested continuity with a digital multimeter, and it indicated 0 ohms. A visual inspection didn't reveal any damage or defects in the element. Before I rush to call the repairman, are there any other clues as to what may be the cause of the element not heating up? Bud

SOURCE: oven not heating

If the element only works partially or not getting red hot at the "Hi" setting, the problem might be with a burned out receptacle that the element plugs into. If this is the case, replace both the element and the receptacle.

You can usually tell when the element itself burns out. It might have small holes or bubbles on the coil. Replace the element, if found defective.

Oven element good but does not heat even though broil workes with temp sensor


Hello Billy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

First, your broiler is not connected to your oven thermocouple (Temperature sensor). When you turn on your broiler full load amps go into the broiler element with no adjustment.


There are only three components that control your oven operation:

1.) Heater Element - Inspect your heating element for cracks, sparking or corrosion on the two contacts on the back wall.

2.) Thermocouple - This is a temperature sensor inside your oven. It is about the diameter of a coat hanger wire. Either it comes straight out of the back upper wall or is mounted on the back wall.
It is disconnected and removed from the upper back of the oven.
You should get a meter reading of 1000-1100 Ohms if the component is good.

3.) Oven Control - The control communicates with the thermocouple and increases or decreases the amps to the oven heating element. If the thermocouple is good then the oven control needs to be replaced.

If in unsure, replace them both.

Recently, I replace a digital oven control for a friend. Sears wanted $256.00 for the control. I purchased a remanufactured oven control over the internet for $30.00.

Get the oven model number off your oven. It is on a metal tag on the face of the oven after you open the door.

Go into the following website. Put in your oven model number (on the left). You will get diagrams and parts part numbers. Record these numbers for the above components. Put the part number in your computer search engine and search best price.

CAUTION: If you replace a electrical control board GROUND YOURSELF by touching something that is bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a control board.

Broiler will not work on a whirlpool range rf367lxsyo


the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control.

Broiler element doesn't work


Reseating the Element The broiler is heated using an electric element which should be clipped in to the top of the broiler enclosure. If this has come loose then it might not be making contact with the necessary terminals. Try to reseat the terminal but before doing so you must ensure that the electricity is turned off.
Testing the Element The element is what heats up and cooks the food in the broiler. Over time the heat can damage the broiler element. These elements are supported by stand-offs and if the element burns out or becomes damaged then this can be a common reason why the broiler isn't working.
The easiest way to test whether this is working is to turn the broiler on and look at the element. If it is working correctly then the element should be glowing red.
Another slightly more complicated test for the broiler element is to remove the element from the oven and disconnect it. Then use a multimeter to check the continuity of the element. Set the multi-meter to measure resistance and then put it either side of the element. The normal measurement should be between 20 and 40 ohms. If the element is infinitely resistant then this means it's broken and will need to be replaced.
Testing Oven Controls Another reason why the broiler will fail to work is because of problems with the oven controls. A thermostat is used to set the temperature of the broiler, and the oven selector controls are used to control the setting of the broiler.
Turn the oven controls on to see whether the broiler is working properly. If not the controls can be removed and tested using a multimeter. Check the outputs to ensure that the controls are working correctly.
These can also be replaced if required by fitting a replacement part designed specifically for your oven.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

I have a Fridgidaire Model # PLEB30S8CCC wall oven. The broiler works fine. The oven is very slow to heat up, 20 minutes to reach 250. I checked the lower element with a omp meter it read 20. Is that...


Hello there and than you for choosing Fixya
If your oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, a common cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements, the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element on the ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil and typically supported by metal stand-offs.
This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.
When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.
  1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.
  3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.
  4. Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.
  5. Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.
  6. Disconnect the wires from the element.
  7. Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.
  8. If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and resecure the element.

I have a GE oven that the oven part only doesnt come on, the top burners and broiler come on, is this something I can fix?


Most likely a bad bake element. Turn off the power to the range. Remove the oven racks. Remove the retaining screws holding the bake element to the rear wall. Carefully pull the element terminals out of the rear wall. CAREFUL now,the wires will be short. Remove the wires. If you have a volt ohm meter you can test the element for continuity. Set the meter for ohms or continuity and touch one meter lead each to the element terminals. If you get no reading replace the element with a new one. If you do get a reading your ERC clock is bad.

if you feel through the insulation you can find the two wires that attach to the element pull them through to plug the element back on but there is no plug per say but first are you sure the element is good were there no wires on the element when you removed it should have been two spade connectors with wires on them attached to the element hold my rating till you reply
