Question and Answers

Q:

i have an oven that will not heat, all of the functions work such as the lights and inside fan just no heat.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

You did not clarify if both ovens quit heating and/or if they both failed at the same time or not. 

If both ovens quit heating at the same time, I would suspect the oven may have lost one leg of voltage. The heating elements require a 220 volt power supply and if one of the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the oven has tripped, the control will power up, but the ovens will not heat. I recommend to locate the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the oven and reset both circuit breakers. Flip both circuit breakers off and on 2-3 times and then set the clock and see if the oven will heat.

If it does not heat, the voltage supply to the oven should be measured and cofirmed before any further steps are made. 

I strongly suggest calling a service technician to properlly diagnose and repair your wall oven. This specific model oven has several control boards and any one of them could fail and prevent the oven from heating. It could have a faulty relay board, relay board with trasformer, electronic oven control board or possibly a faulty thermal or tripped thermal switch.

 You can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician.  Here is a link for the website:  Sears Home Services .

Angie: I added a couple of images below to reference and you will see how complexed the oven circuit is and all the components envolved in the ovens circuit. If you placed the oven in a clean cycle and it then failed to heat after the clean cycle, it could have an open thermal circuit breaker(s). I stongly suggest calling a service technician with the proper equipment and knowledge to properly diagnose and repair your oven. The oven will need to be pulled out and the top and back panels taken off to access the thermal circuit breakers. This is not a DIY repair.

Q:

Does the thermal switch need to be replaced in my Frigidaire wall oven with a lower bake element that won't heat due to shorting?

A:

If the broil element is working (in the oven where the bake element is not working) then the thermal circuit breaker (switch) is not causing your problem. If this component is open, neither the bake nor the broil element would heat in that oven.

You did not indicate how you checked the bake element. Since the bake elements are the same in the upper and lower oven, you may have switched the elements. If not, you could shut off the breaker and try this test to verify that the element that is not heating is definitely okay.

If the element is good then your failure is likely either in the relay control board or the wiring between the relays and the element. I recommend that you have a service technician diagnose and repair this type of problem in the oven.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
