Question about Whirlpool RF365 Electric Kitchen Range

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.

I had a problem with my Whirlpool range. It would not regulate temperature properly on the two large 8" burners. I found the problem was the "infinite switch". The infinite switch regulates temperature of the electric stove elements.

I found this video (see youtube link below) informative and it solved my problem. I found the correct infinite switch on Amazon (my infinite switch was this $21.00 one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004XLEJ7M/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1). The fix to replace 2 infinite switches (both 8" burner switches) took me 1 hour, including cleaning the floor under the stove (nasty!). All was well afterward.

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.

Since you are having problems with multiple elements the problem is probably the circuit board that controls them. This can be ordered and replaced. Be sure to unplug the stove before getting into the circuit board though.

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.
