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.

Frigidaire stove front large/small burner combination. Large burner works but the small burner in the centre of the large burner does not come on at all with any heat. ??


This is a inner/outer burner type assembly? Sounds like a glass top.
Either way, your switch for that burner or the burner needs to be replaced.
If you are able and it is possible, inter change switches to see if it makes a difference. Interchange Large with large, small with small.
If yous switches are connected as one unit, you will not be able to do this. Sorry, I have not looked up your wiring diagram.

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.
