Fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work
My gallery series double oven has an issue with the lower elements in the top and bottom ovens. The top oven lower element stopped working awhile ago and the lower oven lower element stopped working today. Both top elements work on broil and to heat up in bake cycle.Any ideas?
I replaced the relay board for the top oven (the one with the transformer) and it works properly now. My issue was only for the top oven so you probably have to replace both relay boards since both ovens have only the top element working.
318022002 is the part number for the relay board with transformer 318022001 is the part number for the relay board without transformer
Yes the one without the transformer is more expensive for some reason.
The boards are on the top of the oven, I was able to pull out the oven about 75% of the way out of the cabinet and easily get to the boards. Just unplugged the connections and plugged them into the new board.
To get the oven out there are two small screws that go into brackets inside the top oven door. Highly recommend taking the doors off the oven to pull it out, much easier to work with.
NOTE: On my old board I noticed one solder joint that was burned out and I since I already had the new board I just replaced but you might want to check that first and see if just a solder fix gets you working again before you spend $$ on a new board.
It is definitely a design flaw. I too had the same thing happen and sure enough both bottom relays for both boards had lost solder. I re-soldered and put back together and bottom oven worked fine but for some reason the touchpad for the upper oven stopped working. The only push pad on the left that works or beeps is the cancel and oven light. I don't see anything loose or not plugged in right. Anyone have any ideas?
My 2002 model is showing the same failure - both bake elements bad.
I pulled the element (top first) and it tested okay. Swapped it to lower oven and the one from the bottom did not work in the top oven.
Service tech ended up replacing the 'top' relay board, which fixed the top oven. The bottom is still not working, and the ST tells me the part is backordered at the factory. This has been going on for a month.
I'm concerned that both ovens suffered a failure. No lightning strikes, so what happened?

Hello Dana, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Frigidaire oven is displaying an error code of "F8" and your keypad is not working properly. An "F8" error stands for runaway temperature (overheating). I would recommend performing a reset on your oven and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for at least ten minutes.
If that does not help correct your issue then you could have a problem with your RTD (Resistance Temperature Detector) or the EOC (Electronic Oven Control). I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform a proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
I have the Frigidaire PLEB30S8CCA single wall oven. About 3 months ago the baking element appeared to have gone out. We replaced it, but still didn't work. We ended up sending our control board off to a company named Corecentric. They fixed the problem and returned it to us. The oven has worked perfectly ever since. I searched extensively for a new one, but no one sold them anymore. I found Corecentric on Ebay. They were able to confirm over the phone that it was more than likely a control board issue. It cost about $130. My husband was able to do it himself by taking a couple before px and using them when reassembling it.
Hello kimberlymaso - If you are referring to the bake element, but the broil element works then you would need to just replace the bake element. If both your bake and broil element does not work, then there might be a problem with the wiring communication. However, if the oven does not bake and/or broil but the cook top works; contact a professional to diagnose the EOC (electronic oven control).
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.
1, check your power, locate your breaker for the range. turn the breaker off and turn it back on.
Your Range it is electronic control on the Oven but not the Stove Top heating elements.
After you reset the breaker and it still not work.
Please let me know more about the unit.
When you purchase.
How/when it happen.
What is the indicator showing.
Yes needs a new element.they burn out. easily.you know this because they sell them seperately.its there way to make money off of you.anytime they sell you something and the parts are readily available especially sold seperately you know its going to need to be replaced eventually..If you replace 1 replace them all to avoid furthur issues.
Exact same issue as listed above, the bottom element in the top oven has quit heating. The top element works fine.
When setting the lower oven to bake or broil the temperature displays for only a fewd seconds and the relay on engages only for a few seconds. The heating elements does not get hot.
Installed today about 5hrs ago when the oven began to beep with error code F68
