I understand that the lock light on your Electrolux range keeps flashing and everything else is working properly. This could be a potential problem with your latch or control panel. I would recommend looking over the latch or strike for any visible damage. If you do not see any, I would suggest performing a reset on your range. You can reset your range by disconnecting the power cord or flipping the household circuit off for at least ten minutes. If that does not resolve your problem you may need to have a technician out to your home to provide a proper diagnosis and repair. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt
I see that you are having trouble with your burners and are looking for instructions on how to take off the black plate on your Frigidaire range, model# PLGS389ECC. First, I do suggest, that for these kind of repairs, you contact a local authorized technician. Second, I don't necessarily have instructions on how to take that plate off, but I have listed below, a link that will give you a parts breakdown of your range.
There should be 2 release "tabs" between the top surface piece and the main range... e.g. the "slot" in the front of the range.
You'll need to lift slightly on the top surface while pressing these tabs with a thin utensil - like a butter knife or paint scrapper. Be careful to not scratch the paint.
The tabs are located on the front left and right.
In some cases, you can slightly lift the top panel to get a better view of the tabs with a flashlight.
Then, the top should lift up, similar to the hood of a car.
Once inside, it's pretty easy to work on the connections, burners, etc.
If you have the glass cooktop slide-in model, the problem is most likely the burner "ribbon' under the glass top for the small burner has come loose. I fixed mine with only a phillips-head screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, and a 1/4" wrench (1/4" socket on the end of a nutdriver works better). Here are the steps I took to fix it: 1) Slide the oven out from the counter so the sides of the oven are clear of the counter top. 2) Remove the phillips head screws-1 on each side of the oven near the top/rear. These will be the only phillips-head screws you will need to remove. 3) Open the oven door and remove the 4 hex-head screws at the top/front/inside the oven- there are 2 on each side which follow the opening of the door. Then close the door. 4) Pull off the burner knobs by gripping them and pulling straight up. Don't worry, you will not break them but you will need to give them a good tug. 5) Remove the burner retaining nuts that are under the knobs-you may need a wrench to loosen them but only tighten them by hand when reinstalling. 6) Pull the face of the control panel away from the oven slowly until you see a ribbon connector on the right side and then disconnect the ribbon and remove the face plate from the oven. 7) Remove the 4 hex-head screws from the face plate bracket (the plastic part that was holding the face plate) and pull the bracket toward the front of the oven until it flops over and rests on the oven door handle. 8) remove the 2 black screws holding down the glass top-one on each side of the oven-the screw heads face the front of the oven. 9) Disconnect the two wiring harnesses attached to the cook top. Don't worry, they only fit one way so you don't need to label them. 10) Lift the cook top until the wiring harnesses are clear of the holes and place it upside down on a flat surrface. 11) Remove the two retaining bracket screws and brackets from each side of the non-working burner. 12) Slowly lift the burner and flip it upwards until you see the ribbon coils. It should not be necessary to disconnect any wires. 13) Look at the ribbon coils very carefully to see if any of them are disconnected from their main connection points. If so, feed the ribbon back inside the pinch point (you may need a small screwdriver to open the pinch point first) and then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pinch the ribbon to hold it in place. I had to use a voltage meter set in the OHM position to find where mine were disconnected. Once you pinch the ribbon end back into place, put everything back together in reverse order. If your burner still does not work, your burner knob switch may be bad. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
I finally figured it out! The rack supports actually come out also. Not just the sliding supports, but the whole metal part with all the supports on it. At first I thought they were bolted in, but I read somewhere that they come out, too. Upon further investigation, I found the rack supports just slide into the side walls at 4 points. I had to use a little force to pull them out, but they came out and my oven is self-cleaning as I write this. I just thought I would share in case you or others haven't figured it out yet. Now I will just have to see how hard it is to get them back in....
