Default frigidaire oven short at connecting block
Model Number: gles388csa   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


have a short at the far right connecting block, one of the 110 wires, the wire is burnt about one inch before the connector. After setting the the oven temperature it would run for about 10 seconds and then show a "PF" and then you could hear the short sputtering. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot and find the short as im assuming it was something away from the block?

Here are your parts
Parts for Frigidaire GLES388CSA Range - AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is the wiring diagram.
http://manuals.frigidaire.com/prodin.../318045064.pdf

have a short at the far right connecting block, one of the 110 wires, the wire is burnt about one inch before the connector.
It will not be a short as a short would/should blow the circuit breaker in the electrical panel.

After setting the the oven temperature it would run for about 10 seconds and then show a "PF" and then you could hear the short sputtering.

Is the sputtering coming from the connecting block?

I am assuming that the connecting block you refer to is the terminal strip (item 62 in the Body Parts section)

Odds are good that the problem is just at the terminal strip.
What can happen is that if there is a poor or loose connection when current passes through the connection it causes heat and perhaps pitting. This further degrades the connection causing more heat and so on and so on till the connection fails.
I would replace the terminal strip. Be sure to cut the bad wire back till you get to nice clean copper. Also clean all connections with fine emery cloth.
