I need to purchase the baking element for this product. The part number you show differs from the one I have. Is yours the same element. Thank you.
Answer Hello GQ. Part number 318255006 is the correct bake element for your model PLCS389DCC. The AP part number is our stock number for the part. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire double wall oven 45 years old. The baking heating element in the lower oven heats, but does not regulate. It just keeps heating upward. Broiler works fine. Will replacing the baking heating element correct the problem with the lower oven? The upper oven has no problem.
Answer Hello Patricia,
This sounds like you have a problem with the thermostat. The thermostat is the component that cycles the bake element on and off. Since you mentioned it is 45 years old, I'm not sure if we can pull the proper part number but in order to try, we will have to get the model number of the unit from the units' I.D. tag. Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.
This element looks like the right configuration for my range oven. Is this correct? Thanks for your help.
The model number listed looks more like the serial number for the unit. To properly assist you we will need your model number to help you with this. Please post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
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.
