I have an ancient Frigidaire Electric double wall oven Model #RBE-97K. The
will no longer heat at all. If I turn the dial the red light doesn't even
come on(no heat from either Bake or Broil).
I checked the power at the oven outlet, I am getting 220V. Checked the
resistance of the Heat element, it checks out ok. I also checked the power
at the element leads with oven turned on: no power.
The lower oven still works fine. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in Advance,
Broiler and lower element bad? I had to rewire the back feed wires of
my old wall oven they probably melted off the terminal when an element
arched and burnt up, its easy to do, you have to trace back to where
the power fails to find your issue. Does the resistance compare with
the other element, are you sure the controls are on, I have a clock
and extra settings that I still cant figure out but it locks it out
sometimes when its cleaned by accident. If you rewire, research the
right high temp wire and gauge. Mine cant be replaced its built in and
they dont make them that small anymore.
Ed's suggestion is right on the money. Eons ago, the first time I was
working for this company, we worked on appliances as well as hvac. I
couldn't even guess how many oven calls I went on,and put the timer on
"manual" and on came the oven. If that is not the problem, you'll just
have to start checking voltages. You have 230 coming in, and don't have
it to the elements. Wherever it stops is likely your problem. Larry
