Question about Frigidaire Kitchen Ranges

I have a Frigidaire double electric oven (GLEB27T8CBA) the temperature fluctuates (both ovens), but does not heat past 310 degrees F. (First noticed when it would not clean). My engineer husband changed both heating elements, it has not helped. Do you think it's the thermostat? Thank you

Hello,

that is strang, both ovens with the same problem?
of course it could be the thermostat for both ovens, but it is not likely.
The first link shows you all the parts of the lower oven.
It has 2 elements. If one has gone and that one is not replaced, then nothing will change

The upper oven also has 2 elements.
Often the base element is gone first.
When you husband did not notice that, and both the base elements are gone, then indeed nothing will change

I hope this helps and I wish you succes, Dik

First thing that should be checked is proper voltage.  Low voltage can cause this problem.  Have that checked by a professional first then let me know what you find.

It is very common for elements to "catch fire" when they fail. It is really electical arching. But to answer your question you shouldnt be concerned if it ever happens to the bottom element immediatly kill the breaker it will stop instantly. dont use a fire extinguisher as it wont stop the arching. And most ovens do use the upper broil element for baking for very short intervals like 10secs on every minute or so to brown the top of product. Some models (especially older builder line ) do not

If only one element does not work, then test heating element continuity using a multimeter.
If oven does not bake or broil, then test temp probe.
If there is nothing wrong with elements and temp probe , then test wiring harness to control panel and timer control board.

Anyone has had problems with heating of Frigidaire double oven?


Thank you for your inquiry, Bego?a Rebolledo-Kaufman!

From the information you have provided you are experiencing an issue with your Frigidaire double oven not heating. It sounds like a possible problem with your element or thermostat. I would suggest to perform a reset on your range, to see if that would help correct any miscommunication within the electrical components. In order to reset your range you would need to flip the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. If you still continue to have an issue with the oven I would recommend having a professional technician out to provide an accurate diagnosis and replace any electrical parts needed inside of your oven. Hopefully this is helpful to some degree. -Matt

How do you reset the frigidaire wall oven?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand you are trying to reset your Frigidaire wall oven, model# FEB27S5A, due to it not heating above 100 degrees. I suggest resetting at your homes circuit breaker for 3-5 minutes. When you restore power, you will first need to set the clock. After setting the clock, preheat your oven. If you are still noticing that the temperatures are still not going above 100 degrees, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what is causing it to not reach the desired temperatures. Hope this is helpful.

-Best regards-

How close should the temp control hold the temp


Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

The oven doesn't come close to keeping a REASONABLE temperature. It fluctuates sometimes 75-100 degrees. I'm not talking about opening the door and then waiting to re-establish the temperature it was set...


If you just bought it, have it replaced, or repaired under warranty. If it is an old oven, replace the temp probe first (if it electric) It senses the temp inside oven, It is the least expensive part of the fix. If that doesn't work, replace thermostat/temp control board. When you replace a board, you replace the probe too. It will be needed either way. If just changing the probe works, you saved yourself some money.

Elements do not heat to proper settings


If both elements are not working properly then the problem is either the temperature probe or the control board.

Replace the temp probe first.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Frigidaire double oven has one element not working in each oven


sounds as if perhaps there has been a thermal overload(switch) tha has gone bad, refer to part number 119 on bothe the lower and upper oven for refernce , you should have continuity trough the switches.
