Frigidaire Gas Range: Model# PLCS389ECD, New RF burner not lighting right away.

12 posts in this topic

This Frigidaire Range Model# PLCS389ECD has a broil element stuck on, low.  I went to check out the right front burner not ingiting and discovered this other issue.  Back to the right front electrode, there appears to be two different electrodes for this model, I can't seem to find the correct part # for that particular electrode, does it matter?  So, two issues: the correct electrode and the broil element stuck on?

The broil element may be grounded, or control relay has failed

OR both, since the Controller uses a DLB Relay and a Broil Relay

The DLB Relay should prevent L2 power, and the Broil Relay should prevent L1 power ...

so if the Element was partially grounded, there wouldn't be any power on either end.

O.K. I'm back, there was never an issue with the Broiler, the guys wife had previously used the broiler then went to work, so when I was going over the oven, It was still warm.  In the mean time I ordered a new burner and I don't really know how to get to the igniter?  does anybody have the service manual on this one?  Model# PLCS389ECD

To raise the top and get to the orifice holders/tubes you will have to remove all for burner caps and heads then remove the screws that hold the top down to the orifice holders/tubes and hope the screws don't all break off.

 

Once the screws around each of the four burners are removed depress the clips about an inch or two in from each side with a putty knife to release top.

So I installed a new Right Front burner P/N 318306107 because the spark electrode was cracked on the old one.  After I installed it the burner would light, but only after a lot of gas build up and small blue fireball.  I noticed that there are two different slots for the spark electrode to be placed.  I don't remember how this one came in the box. This particular range is at about 7,000ft above sea level, if that matters.  The other three burners light just fine and quickly.  Should I move the electrode or is there another adjustment I need to know about?  Thanks.
