What would make a bake element explode?
Answer Hello George. Sometimes they short out and look like they exploded. Just replace the element and it should be fine.
The bottom heating element was not working in our oven so we replaced the element with a new one.
The bottom element still does not heat. Any ideas?
Answer Hello Michelle. Make sure the thermal switch 318004900 is reading closed for continuity. If so, and the element is new, the board 318010700 is bad. The board has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
My frigidaire electric range suddenly stopped heating. The stove burners, bake and broil elements suddenly quit working. All lights, timers, etc. are functioning properly so I know the unit is recieving power.
Answer Stephanie, you need to check and make sure you have 220-240 VAC to the outlet at the wall (check and reset the breaker several times). and check the power cord connections at the terminal block on the back of the range. Apparently you have at least 120 VAC to the range, this operates the L1 voltage to the control, oven light, etc. L2 is usually the power supplied, to the elements, if the L2 circuit doesn't supply power to the elements the stove won't heat. If you need more assistance, please include a model number so we can verify the wiring and control board circuits.
How do I tell if my heating element is bad? Oven model #gleb30s8csb. Top element gets hot but not the bottom. Bottom element looks ok, no breaks or uneven coloring.
You will want to check to see if you are getting power at the control board. If you check from L1 to bake with the unit turned on the bake setting, you should have 240 vac. If there is 240 vac present then the control board is bad and would need to be replaced. If there is not 240 vac then the you will need to trace back to the element.
Broil or bake element dose not work. What could be the problem with my stove?
Answer Hello Bob. Check and make sure there is 240 volts coming to the unit. If so, then you will test and make sure the control is sending power to the elements. If not, replace the control on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Burner element broke off. Would like to replace it. Serial no # is 74CL0761.
Answer Hello Brenda! The bake element 08012437 has been discontinued. You can, however, use GE bake element part number WB44X200 in place of your discontinued element. Thanks.
How do I remover the old heating bake element to replace with new one, part #318255006?
Answer Hi Christine, it is pretty much the same as shown in the video on our website. Take a look at the repair video on the link for your element 318255006 and you will see how easy it is. The element and range in the video may look different from yours but it is the same process. Disconnect the power from your range by unplugging it or flipping the breaker off. Remove the screws mounting your element to the back wall and slide the element out enough to reach the wire connections. Be careful not to let the wires slip back into the hole when you disconnect them from the old element. Remove the old element and attach the wires to the new element. Then mount the new element to the back wall using the same screws you removed earlier. It's as simple as that, hope this helps!
