You could have a tripped thermal circuit breaker, a voltage supply problem, a failed bake element or a bad electronic oven control board in the oven that is causing this heating failure. It is difficult to provide troubleshooting advice without having the model number for the oven. I recommend that you reply with that information. The model number is normally on the side of the opening to the oven cavity in that type of oven. Open the oven door to view that area.

Here are some basic initial troubleshooting steps that you can take:

  1. If this is an electric oven, check the house circuit breakers or house fuses for the oven. The control will power up if only one of legs of 240 volt power is supplied to the oven. If the 120 volt second leg of 240 volt power is missing, then the main bake and broil elements in the oven will not heat.
  2. If you have a gas oven, make sure that the gas cut-off valve is fully open and that you have an adequate gas supply provided to that appliance.

As noted above, reply with that model number and additional details for more help with this problem.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

Model # is PLEF489CCC. The heating element doesn't heat up on the large oven. But the side oven is working properly. Is there a reset button I can press?

Thanks for adding that model number. There is not a reset on this range. You may be able to reset the control board in the console by unplugging the range for 5 minutes. You can shut off the house circuit breaker for the range if that outlet is difficult to reach. After you reset the control in that manner, see if the oven works. If not, then you could have a bad control board or a failed DLB (Double Line Break) relay. The image below shows the wiring diagram for your range with the circuit through that bake element traced in yellow and red (not necessarily the actual wire colors). The elements in that large oven go through a DLB relay that you will find in the console or on the back ouside wall of the oven cavity. UNPLUG THE RANGE before accessing internal components. You can use that wiring diagram shown below to trace the wires and locate that relay. Check the relay for burn marks. If you are confident that you can safely bypass that relay for a short test, then you can pull off the black and red wires and connect them. Tape that connection with electrical tape so that it won't short out against the metal cabinet. Briefly power up the range and see if the elements will heat. If they do, then you may have a bad relay or a problem with the electronic clock control board in the console. The next step would be to check for voltage on the pink wires going to that relay from the control board. I believe that you should measure low voltage DC through those wires when the range is set in a bake or broil mode. It may be around 24 volts DC. There is a possibility that it is low voltage AC. You can measure both. NOTE: You should only check this live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking that voltage with a volt/ohm meter. UNPLUG the range as soon as live testing is completed. (Continued below)

If that relay is getting voltage but not closing, then the relay will need to be replaced. If that relay is not getting any voltage, then you can check the wiring connections between the relay and the control board (pink wires). If the wiring connection is okay, you will need to replace that electronic clock control board. You can order parts from this page Frigidaire Range PLEF489CCC Parts . Be sure that you UNPLUG the range before accessing internal components. Do not leave that DLB relay bypassed. Do not continue to operate the range with those wires connected. It is an important safety component that must be replaced before using that oven. These tips may help you fix that oven failure in your range. If you need more help, reply with additional details.
