Default Older GE oven broiler not working
Model Number: 1J367N   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a very nice early 1950s oven with the broiler not working. I get 125V on the black. I also get 125V at the oven selector switch on all blacks and red connected to it when turned to broil. I also get 125V on the white leading from the broiler element back to the selector switch. I have also found I can get 50V if I place meter between the element itself and the frame. The bottom element works fine, that I get 250V across the element ends. Not to sure if the selector switch is bad or what? Please help

Thank you

It's a GE not a Frigidaire. Selected the wrong band by mistake

Hello,

I believe it suppose to be 240 VAC to the broil heating element as well. Unfortunately I'm not able to find any diagrams, schematics and/or parts list for such old product.

Gene.

Default HI Gene 240V

Yes, it suppose to have 240 across the element. I have the schematic and I thinks the selector switch contacts are bad but am not sure. I am wondering if the thermostat could be the issue? The bottom element heats up very quickly. Finding parts is a bit of a pain for this.

Joe

Default FIxed

Hello

I fixed it. Took the selector switch apart and cleaned the contacts one of which was bad. It works for now but I will need to find a good used switch. Older GE with Bake, Timed bake, and broil.

It is either a WB22X15 or an X25. Since there is no part number on the elector switch it's hard to tell. What I have to go off of is there are three settings, Bake, Time Bake,a nd Broil. When the switch is turn to either one of those a light comes on for the thermostat. On the back there are eight wire connections, and on the inside 4 sets of contact points.

Thank you for your help

I've tried both part numbers and no one comes up. You may want to take the old part to a local appliance parts store to match it up.
