How do i change a whirlpool model wbp88800 burner control


Unplug stove. There should be two screws under edge of the cook top. You need to open oven door to get at them. Remove screws, lift cook top up at the front and prop it up. There will be two or three screws with spring clips holding the burner to the cook top. Unplug the connections, remove screws, remove burner. Install in reverse. I did this at Christmas just in time for dinner. It takes about ten minutes.

Replace heating element in RB790 ge hotpoint. How remove glasstop to reach element


We had the same problem with ours. This is likely caused by one of two things: The element could be bad, or the element controller could be bad. I hope this helps...

1. Get a screwdriver and multimeter.

2. Slide out the stove and unplug it.

3. Open the oven door and look along the front edge up under the cooking deck. You will see several screws. Remove them.

4. Pry up the top cooking deck, the deck is hinged on the back side of the stove.

5. Lift up the front end of deck and get something to prop it up with.

6. The heating elements are are mounted to sheet metal strips, which are attached to the bottom of the cooking deck with screws.

7. Plug the stove back in and set the bad element to high heat.
NOTE: THE EXPOSED WIRING UNDER THE DECK COULD BE ENERGIZED TO 220V, ENOUGH TO KILL IF TOUCHED! USE EXTREME CAUTION. NO CHILDREN, PETS OR CURIOUS ONLOOKERS NEED TO BE AROUND WHILE DOING THIS. ALSO, YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE DOING THIS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING.

8. Take the multimeter probes and check the voltage going to the element. If the voltage is 220V, then the element is bad. If no voltage or very low voltage, then the controller is bad.

9. Unplug the stove.

10. If the controller is bad, then remove back cover from control panel. Remove controller and replace it.

11. If burner is bad, unplug burner and remove it...you will need to remove sheet metal strip that the burners are mounted on from deck before removing burner from the strip. NOTE: The burners are delicate, be careful.

11.a Mark the metal mounting strip where the burner tabs attach to it with a marker before removing burner because there are several locations on the strip where different burner sizes could be mounted.

12. The replacement burner is expensive. After careful inspection, I found the burner to be bad on ours, and the cause was a broken weld between the burner element foil where it is tack welded to the wire tab at the side of the burner. Looking at the quality of the welds, I would not be surprised if this is a common problem. One could take a piece of steel, say a paper clip or similar, and use a pair of needle nose pliers and fashion a small clip using the needle nose pliers to compress the break in the element foil back together. Otherwise, replace the element. I opted to repair the element and save the money.

13. Reinstall the element and plug the element in. Note, the element can be installed in several locations on the sheet metal mounting strip. Make sure to install back in the original locations that you marked with a marker. Carefully reinstall the mounting strip to the deck. Screw deck back down.

14. Plug stove back in.

Hot indicator surface light will not turn off on maytag smooth top oven cre9600bce. always stays red even when oven or cook top not in use. What part is needed.


I had the same problem, but I found out it was only when one particular burner was turned on. I waited for the problem burner to cool, then took the fist of my hand and tapped on the burner itself and the light goes out every time. Works like a charm..probably a loose connection with that one burner.

Tappan stove model # 30-3053-23-02. How do I remove the stove top?


For Tappan stove model 30-3053-23-02.

Each burner (4) is mounted to the stove top with three 4.5mm hex screws. All 12 screws must be removed, which is easier said than done. In my case, of the 12, 6 heads snapped off. The other 6 heads had to be drilled out. The metal is very hard (tempered from long exposure to high heat?), so use a carbide/diamond high-speed drill bit (1/8" or 3/16").

The front corners of the stove top are each held by a clip. After removal of the burner mount screws (or heads at least), lift straight up on each front corner of the stove top to release the top from the clip. An alternate method is to use a screwdriver as a lever to pry the corner off the clip. Once released from the clips, the front pulls up, while the back is "hinged" (like lifting an auto hood). Using a stubby phillips screwdriver, unscrew one of the back hinges. At this point, the stove top can be lifted off.

If you are fortunate, the burners were unmounted by simply removing the screws. But if they broke off or had to be drilled out, it seems the best thing to do is just purchase new burner assemblies ($20-$30 each). In either case, also buy new screws specifically for mounting the burners.

Stove burner gets red hot


Since you do not have a thermostat control on your burners, I would suspect you may have an infinite switch (burner control), that controls that particular burner, possibly starting to go bad. The thermostat control is located on the infinite switch itself and may be cycling on and off improperly. Its hard to tell with intermittent problems, however. If in doubt, you can do a comparison between a working 8" inch burner and the one you are having problems with.

Another thing to consider with these coil type plug in burners, the receptacles under the cook top that they plug into can gradually become loose over time and cause the burners to arc. This may also cause excess current flow through the burner and will eventually cause burner coil damage and/or receptacle failure. I would troubleshoot this by, first, by unplugging the appliance and inspecting all the burner receptacles. If any show signs of burning or melting, replace them. You will need to lift the cook top to access them. Locate the screws under the bottom front edge of the cook top (open the oven door to see them) and remove them. With the screws removed, the cook top will lift up. Prop in place using the hinge supports.

NOTE: Remove the burner coils and bowls before lifting the cook top.

Replacements parts (including burner receptacles) can be purchased at pcappliancerepair.com, appliancepartspro.com, searspartsdirect.com, or repairclinic.com.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Frigidaire ceramic top self cleaning stove


Have you thought about reading the manual, it states that the heat goes off and on to maintain the proper heat while cooking, You should turn the burner off a few minutes before done because even on off the burner is still cooking while it is cooling down to go off. And you do not need to have as high of heat to cook that's what so great about this ceramic tops you save time and energy.
