Both the broiler and oven elements appear not to work. I would think that this is very unusual-both at the same time? So what other parts would cause both not to heat up. Control panel seems to work with lights etc showing. ???

Jack M.,

This is an electric range,

Are you sure both 30 amp breakers have been tripped and reset, at the breaker box ?

Have you checked for 220 Volts at the outlet, and the terminal block on the range ?

The only other things that would cause both elements to not heat would be a bad ERC(clock/control) or a broken wire in the wiring harness.

Hope this helps,
:) :) :)

Unfortunantly, the sears site is down right now, but on the back of the oven, you would have to pull the oven from the wall, and then take the upper back panel off there will be a round part, they call it a thermostat. It is round, and has 2 wires coming to it. Now, before you do all this kill the power to the oven. Ok, now, once you locate that part. Pull the two wires off of it, and put the 2 terminal ends of the wires together, and put some tape around the terminals so they do not hit metal. So what we are doing here is jumping it out. Once that is done, turn the power on, and see if it works. If it does, DO NOT RUN it with the thermostat jumped out. This is for checking purposes only. Actually, if you have an ohm meter, once you located the part with the power off, you can pull the 2 wires off, and ohm it out. If it gets a reading it is good, If not replace it. If the oven went out, after you put it in a clean cycle, you would need to replace the oven sensor too. Because the oven got to hot, and blew the thermostat. Tom ApplianceEducator.com

Kayakcrzy,

Unfortunately,

One of us in incorrect.

That model number comes up as a Fridgidaire built Free Standing Electric Range, in the Sears site.

Also in the site,

According to the wiring diagram and schematic, there is no Thermal fuse in the circuit for the oven.

Good Luck,
:) :) :)

At this point, if the burner work, all the power is there. look around for some burn't wires, where the power comes into the oven. If no burn't wires, the ERC board will be the culprit.
