Stand alone range, burners not working
(San Antonio, TX)
Frigidaire flat top stand alone range Model: GLEF369DSJ.
Both burners on the left side have quit working.
One element quit working about a week before the other one went out. The range is about 2 yrs. old.
Before I buy two new burner elements, my question is: How do I know if the burners are defective or if it caused by something else (ie a switch or other electrical component)??????Answer
Here are your Replacement parts for FRIGIDAIRE GLEF369DSJ Frigidaire/range
If you have an ohmmeter this is how you can test to see which part to replace. Also you are going to have to treat them as separate problems because they didn’t go out at the same time.
Disconnect power from the range and remove the back cover off the control panel. On the back of the switch you will see terminals marked L1, L2, P, H1 and H2. Disconnect the H1 and H2 wires; these are the wires that go to the element/burner. Using your ohmmeter check for continuity between the two wires.
If it is open you have a bad element or broken wire. More than likely it is a bad element. If it does have continuity the switch is bad. Do this on both switches.
If the switches are bad make sure you connect the wires correctly per instructions and pay attention to which wires go where when disconnecting the old switch.
If you do not connect them correctly you may short out that switch and the one beside it. If the wires are long enough I wouldn’t unplug any of the wires off the old switch until the new on was in place, then unplug one at a time placing it on the correct terminal as you go.
I hope this helps!!
