I have the same problem, started after a self clean. Both oven elements will not work. There is a 20A fuse on one of the wires that comes from the terminal block (where the wall plug connects to the back of the oven) that feeds the two heater elements. My fuse was blown. I cut it out and twisted the wires together to verify it works, and it does, but this is an unsafe condition, and am currently looking to have the fuse replaced by a pro.

The broiler quit on my Frigidaire flat 5op stove. Something happened and I got an error code. Now when I turn on bake the broiler comes on. How do I reset it.

Sounds like a problem in the oven control board, something not easy to test. That said, I don't find your model number. It would have been helpful to know the error code, something you didn't supply. You might repost a query with the error code and the model number.

Sometimes a reset can be achieved by simply shutting off a circuit breaker and then closing it again. Or, the bottom panel of an oven might slide out give you access to a plug if the oven is not hardwired to your living quarters. But if the stove comes back to life sporting the same error message, I suspect you are destined to access a repairman or a new stove. Still, you might get some information below. Sorry, without the model number and error code, there is not much more I can determine about this.

If your stove is under warranty, the following may be of assistance.

Electric control panel on gas frigidaire stove

Hello Tim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician, with a customer base of 25 families on the side. I love the work.

You did not post your range model number which is on a label either on the face of the oven when you open the oven door or on the side of the oven door.

Gas ovens have the same basic operational functions however, the components to initiate these functions is different depending on your model number.

1.) Ignitors - Your gas range has separate ignitors for the oven and the broil operation. So, failure of both at the same time is not the problem.

2.) Main Control Board - Rarely is this the problem if your burners are working.

3.) Gas Safety Valve - Has 2 lines coming off it. One to the top burners and one to the oven. Maybe, it happens, but it is rare.

4.) Main Gas Valve - Has two coils which may be bad. But, low probability.

5.) Thermocouple - High probability, if you only have one thermocouple for both the oven and broiler.

6.) Oven Control Board - This is a high probability. This is a smaller control board than your main control board. This board controls both your broiler and oven.
You can go into the following website, put in your model number, and get both diagrams and component part numbers.

You can go into this website and purchase from Sears, or you can record the model number, search the web and purchase a $200.00 part for about $40.00. Purchase used if you can. I do.

If you decide to go with the oven control board, make sure you ground yourself by touching bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board. You should receive the board in a anti-static silver bag.

Remember, I do not have your model number, so I am guessing based on my professional experience.

Loud pop and light behind stove. Stove top works, oven does not.

Good Morning Stephanie - Typically you may locate the model and serial number in the storage drawer, on the right side. Based on the symptoms you are describing, you may either have a communication error from the main control board or a faulty bake and/or broiler element. If resetting the unit did not solved the issue, at this point I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose the range to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.


Kenmore electric range: oven & broiler will not work.

All your oven features are controlled by the Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. This is your clock/timer assembly. Unfortunately, most do not have fuses and are not serviceable. You will probably need to replace the board. The following link explains how:

Replacement circuit boards can be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare. For the model number you have listed, the part number for a new board is 316207511.

NOTE: The overlay, which is the plastic template with the numbers and letters preprinted on it, does not come with the new board. It has to be purchased seperately. However, if the current overly is still in good shape, it can be peeled off the old circuit board and reused. The part number (if required) is 316220841.

If you have questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven broiler will not go off., when i close oven

This is a control board issue. The contacts on the broiler relay may have welded closed. You options are to replace the controller, or disable the broiler relay output. The controller is the most expensive part of the range. The model numbers shown do not match a Kenmore stove, so I couldn't give you a better answer. Check on the back of the unit for a model number and go to Sears Parts site to find what you need. If the oven works but not the broiler you may be able to disconnect the output from the card and continue to use the rest of the range. I did this while waiting for my part to arrive. The Sears store should have a wiring diagram if you can't find the one that is usually found on the stove. Mine was in an envelope on the back of the unit, though I have seen them attached to the backside of the rear cover. Mine was just a quick connect and I pulled it loose, taped the end up and continued to use the rest of the range.

Hello. Regarding my Amana range (MODEL: AGDS902),

You will have to replace the bottom element.


GE Profile Stove, stove top works but the oven will not heat up.

You will most likely have to replace the oven igniter. If you have the model number you posted under, I believe the igniter for the broiler is the same as the oven broiler, and could be swapped out to get the oven working again. (of course, now the broiler won't work until that igniter is replaced) If you'd like the part number or any further advise, comment back with the full model number off the sticker just behind the lower drawer panel on the frame of the range. Tonight, you may have to finish the chicken on the stove top.

My broiler works - but the oven does not - GE Dual Fuel range

Thanks for providing the full model number, which allows us to look up part numbers and see exploded views of your product.
Most likely the bake ignitor is bad (even if it still glows, it may not draw enough amperage to allow the gas safety valve to open). One way you can test this on your model is to swap out the broil ignitor for the bake ignitor, as they are the same part number on your model. (part number WB13T10045) The broiler is normally used much less than the oven, so the part does not fail very often on the broiler. You will have to take the cover off the floor of the oven, then the flame spreader, to reach the burner area. The ignitor is the rectangular part at the back, on the side of the burner. (only two wires to deal with) (By the way, for future reference, your model number ends is SS, as in stainless steel, not a 55)
