Question about Frigidaire Ovens

Open Question

Our Frigidaire PLEB30T9FCC double oven has this issue: In the top oven, no matter what heat function we try using, the broil element runs instead, until it overheats to error code.

If the bottom oven is already on, and we try to use the top oven, this problem occurs right away. If the bottom oven is off, the top oven will work fine, but after 1/2 hour or so it will default to the broil and burn whatever unsuspecting dish is inside.

SOURCE: Upper oven elements don't heat

Hello- 'Successfully' sounds like you were forewarned....  During the 'self-clean' cycle a circuit or connection to the upper elements burned out while attempting to turn stuff inside the oven to ash. Since this is a wall oven my recommendation is for service from a good tech in your area. You may have lucked out with a fried connector, but many times control board is damaged beyond repair and must be replaced. Only on-site diagnostics will confirm, and this is a very heavy unit for most owners to safely service.  - Remember- Don't use 'self clean'!! Scrape and clean with soapy water and cloth. Turn on oven to 450deg. for 30 min. Much safer. Less costly.       Please acknowledge this post if the info is helpful- Have more if needed.  Thanks-  Ed

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..

Fulgor 300 series double oven top oven works fine, bottom oven locked code reads f4. What can I do?


f4 means a problem has occurred with the oven door latch mechanism. Try unplugging the power to the oven and then wait 1 minute and turn back on, this may clear the problem, if not you need to call a qualified service technician for Fulgor products

Dacro Wall oven (electric) does not heat past 345 degrees on bake or convection bake but broiler works and bottom oven works fine (for bake, convection bake and broil).


it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area

BOUGHT A HOME IN UNION NJ WITH THE GE DOUBLE WALL OVEN TOP PART DOES NOT WORK BOTTOM PART BURNS THE FOOD NEED REPAIR PLS CALL ME AT 908-391-8942


The heating element in top unit may be loose or burned out. Push the element toward the back and see if it engages. If it is already engaged, you'll need to replace it. It is simple to remove it.Just give a firm tug and it should come right out. To replace with a new element, simply push it in firmly.
With the bottom unit, are controls set for bake? If they are set for "broil" you are using direct heat and it will cook foods more quickly.Also, is bottom unit a convection oven? If so, foods will cook in 1/4 to 1/2 the time for a conventional oven, so you'll have to adjust your temperature down about 25-50 degrees and shorten your cooking time.

I have burned on foil on bottom of oven, how do I get it off. Jane


Actually you can remove the foil but it will take patience and several hours. This is what I recommend. BE CAREFUL, remove as much of the foil as possible then turn oven on to 200 degrees. Lay an old wet bath towel on top and use a plastic spatula to remove the foil. Be patient, keep the towel wet and expect this proceedure to take several hours. Do not leave the oven on and go to bed.

Just brought a bosch oven and there no life in the bottom oven


If it has a timer, then make sure it is set manual and not auto, or the oven will not work.
Try pressing 2 buttons at the left of timer and one button on right of timer to set it to manual, if it does not work this way, then try another combination of buttons.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Fridgiaire Gallery series Model GLEB30T8CBA lower elements dont work


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.

Broilers suddenly stopped working


gerrie824 look at the elements and see if there is cracks in them. If so then yes they failed. During bake the broil elements come on in 1/2 power to brown the top of what you are baking. If there isn't a break in the elements, then the issue could be a burnt wire, failed relay, or such.
