A:

From the description you give I suspect the main control has failed.

The door switch wouldn't prevent the surface controls from working.

The breaker was reset but at some point voltage may need to be verified to the outlet and control.

The image below may help you confirm if the control is at fault.

You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Q:

The inner element on my PLEF398CCB won't shut off

A:

I have two answers to your problem. If the inner element won't shut off it is most likely not the switch at fault so swapping the switch would not and did not improve the problem.

From the description you give most likely the surface control relay board has a stuck relay and is the cause of the problem.

I would suggest replacing the surface element control to correct this problem.

There was a known issue with the element staying on all the time. There was a moisture kit and control board used to correct the problem of the element not turning off.

At this point I would suggest you check the serial number on your range. If the serial number is between a certain range the repair would be done with no charge. Check the serial number on this oven and if the number is between VF122xxxxx and VF831xxxxx then I would suggest scheduling service for this problem.

The repair would most likely be covered. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

If there are any additional details I would be able to assist you further.

Perfect! Thanks. It's like a $350 part, but found it on Ebay(refurb) cheaper($70)... I contacted Frigidaire, it is covered under a recall and they are sending the part, and will send a tech after the part gets here ... I'll just swap it myself most likely. Thanks again, and I see the $24 charge from you guys, which I'm happy to pay!

Q:

How do I fix the two rear heating elements on my Frigidaire Professional Series electric free standing range model PLEF398CCB?

A:

Diagnosing and repairing the burner problem on your range will normally require a service technician. The failure that is preventing your back burners to heat could be the element but could also be in the user interface control boards, the surface unit power control board, or the wiring between the components. A technician would normally check the elements to see if they are getting the 240 volts needed to heat. If they are, then the element would need to be replaced. This is a dangerous check that I recommend only be conducted by a technician. If the burners are not getting the 240 volts from the power board, the wiring would need to be checked. If the wiring is okay, the surface unit power control would need to be checked. If no voltage is being supplied by the power control board, then you could have a failed power control board or a failed user interface display board. Live voltage checks needed to diagnose this failure are extremely dangerous. This is why I recommend having a service technician check the range to determine the cause of your failure.

Although I do not recommend replacing the elements without proper diagnosis, here are the part numbers:

  • Right rear -- 316010205
  • Left rear -- 316235301 NOTE: The left rear element is part of the bridge element that must all be replaced at once.
The cost of these parts is about $300. This is another reason that I recommend having your failure diagnosed by a technician before replacing these parts.

I provided the basic procedure for replacing the elements in the first image below. The second image shows the wiring schematic for your range. It shows the controls discussed above.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. This is a reliable parts source. You can view a parts list diagram for your range on the Sears PartsDirect website as well.

The Sears PartsDirect website also have parts list diagrams for several different models of Whirlpool garbage disposals that begin with model number GC1000 (GC1000PE, GC1000PE1, GC1000PE2, GC1000XE, GC1000XE1, etc.) One of these models may match your exact Whirlpool garbage disposal.
