Hi there, I have a pretty basic frigidaire FEF series electric oven. A couple of days ago, the baking element blew with a lot of noise and some ash inside the oven. I recieved the new element today, expecting a pretty typical exchange. But, I can't get the new element to heat. The broiler works, as does the range and burners. There is no control panel, only clock and timer, the functions are controlled via dials.
The resistance is fine, between 20-30 ohms. There is one red wire and one yellow wire connecting to the element. I have power to the red wire, but not to the yellow wire. the yellow wire runs to the dial that determines whether I want to bake or broil. When I place the meter on the yellow connection on the back of the dial and the red wire connection on the element there is resistance.
I'm not sure if there is any other sort of reset or breaker inside the wiring, I don't find any. So, if any one know what else to check or can lead me to the part name and number of this dial control I'd greatly appreciate it.
