Question No power to elements
Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Frigidaire model PLEM27S8CCB built in oven. It has power to the control panel but the elements won't heat up. I have checked for continuity on the thermal switch and it read zero. I understand there is an inline circuit breaker and two thermal fuses (upper and lower) according to the wiring diagram. Where do I find these components on this model and wikk checking for continuity be sufficient?

Hi,

I could not find a diagram for a PLEM27S8CCB, but here is one for a PLEB27S8CCB

Maybe the diagram will help you find the part your looking for.

Did you already check this thermal switch?

Question diagram

AJ,
Sorry about the typo. That is the right diagram but it doesn't show
AP3777386, AP3055316, or AP3055315. It's the same diagram I have. Gene had mentioned these components as possible culprits in another thread where a guy seemed to be having the same problem I'm having but on another brand. I checked the thermal switch and it read zero so I thought maybe my oven would have similar components.

Make sure the oven is getting 220-240 volts.

The control panel only needs 110-120 volts to work, but the heating elements need 220-240 volts.

Do you have a fuse box for the house or a breaker box?
If you have a fuse box it will have two fuses for the oven. If one house fuse it bad the oven would only be getting 120-120 Volts and that would be enough for the control panel to work, but not enough voltage for the heating elements to work.

If you have a breaker box for the house it still would not hurt to check for voltage at the oven were the power cord comes in to make sure you have the correct 220-240 volts. If you don't have the correct voltage and have breakers check the junction box the power cord goes to. I have seen wire nuts burn off and give problems.

Maybe Gene will have some other idea's too.

I checked the 220v outlet and the readings are between 22o and 247. When we checked across the thermal switch the wiring was still connected. Should I check all components after disconnecting them?
