Frigidaire double wall oven bake element wont work

3 posts in this topic

Frigidaire double wall oven. Model # PLEB27T8CCB. Bake element in upper oven will not work. Broil element works okay. Could not get control panel apart to do further testing. (someone already stripped the screw heads.)  I know this model has 2 relay boards. one for the upper and one for the lower oven. Im assuming its the relay board. After looking at the diagram it shows a it show a thermal circuit breaker on the upper and lower oven. I havent seen this exact wording in a wiring diagram before. But with the broil element working that would mean thats not the problem. Any other thoughts besides the Relay board?

If the element is good I'm thinking a relay board too. With these ovens every time I've had a realy board be at fault for no bake its been a burned solder joint on the board. I always repair the board to keep costs down and then I don't have to pull the oven out a second time to replace the board after ordering one. I can charge more in labor for repairing the board so its a more profitable job then replacing the board. Your method may vary but thats what I do if the board is fixable with a soldering gun.

 

While the oven is out pull the cover off the junction box and make sure the wire nuts are tight and not burned. 10% of the time with a burned joint on a board there is a half melted wire nut too.

Thanks for the info Mike! I will check all that! Thought I was thinking the right thing. Good to hear it from another source. I haven't seen this exact model before. I don't work on many wall ovens.
