Whirlpool R365 Large Burners won't work

The two large burners on my stove are unreliable. I have cleaned off the ends but that does not seem to work. One burner was working fine and then it just stopped in the middle of cooking. I have made sure that they are plugged in tightly, too. The stove is 16 years old. Does it make sense to replace the two large burners or could it be a voltage problem? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    The large burners don't work anymore. Before they stopped working, we lost control of the ability to control the temperature. They would only operate on high. We have tried replacing the coils, which didn't make a difference and we checked the fuse box. Additionally, the lights indicating that the burners are on will not go off, even when the burners are turned off. We have to shut off via the fuse box in order to get the lights to go off. No problem with the oven - so far

The problem could likely be in the sockets that the elements plug in to. Over time, they lose tension and deteriorate. The replacement sockets are relatively cheap and easy to replace. If the connection ends of the elements are still in good shape, there is really no reason to replace the element.

How many BTU's are in each element of a 1990 model hardwick propane stove?


Hello, it will depend on the size of the burner. If you have two large burners, one medium, and one small burner. It will also depend if you are using NG. Now, with LPG, it would be about 10 % less than natural gas. I am take a guess here, OK. Large burners 5000 BTU's. Medium: 2500 BTU's, and the small maybe 1200 BTU's per hour. Now, most of the burner on newer stove/ranges are set by the industrial standards. GB...stewbison

This could be a problem with the gas regulator, gas supply pressure or the burners need to be cleaned. Here are the cleaning instructions for the burners. If you are still having problems with the burners I would recommend having the gas pressure & regulator checked.

Gas burners will not ignite ater cleaning stove top


hi friend,
On stove top burners that have sparklers that are not visible at the burner head, the burner heads have ignition ports. If the sparklers are functioning and the burners won't lite, chances are the ignition ports are clogged or restricted.

Ignition ports are tiny holes up one side of the burner head. If these holes are restricted, they must be cleared out. Cleaning can be accomplished using one of three methods.

Most commonly, a large sewing straight pin needle can be used. DO NOT enlarge the ignition holes. Doing so will have adverse burner lighting effects.

Burner heads where the flames will not burn completely around the entire circumference of the burner head, the holes which do not have flames are clogged up and need cleaning.

In cases of extremely dirty burner heads, soaking the burners in very hot water with plenty of dissolved automatic dishwasher detergent for several hours, rinsing and drying or a combination of both methods for heavily soiled burners.
hope this helps u

Large electric burners not working on lowest "LO" setting


Unplug the range and remove the problem elements.
With a flashlight, look inside the element receptacle for burned or disfigured terminals.
If they are damaged they can be replaced.
If the element terminals are OK you have defective switches.
