SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner

Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

check you outlet make sure it has 240 volts coming out. it might be your house breaker 1 side bad it is a breaker with 2 points in it 1 side will work and give you 120 volts but the other side is burned out you need both points in contact to give you 240 volts good luck and make sure you use a volt tester you can buy at any hardware

SOURCE: INTERMITTENT BURNER ELEMENT

Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya

SOURCE: Electric range burners and oven

check the power behind the stove, the outlet for 220 volts, i just fix one with the same problem, it was getting 110 volts but not the 220 volts. so there was nothing wrong with the stove but with the power source.when the stove indicator lights work and the clock, it means that only 110 volts are coming to the stove.

My Hotpoint RB757EH 5BB electric range started a high pitch beep with the error "Bad Line" flashing on the screen.


90 % of Hotpoint range problems will be a loose or broken wire either at terminal block were cord hooks up. check wires from block to stove the wire running up to elements and control board
also check were range plugs into wall it may be loose and not getting good return. burners will work because there is no electronics involved just a infinite switch and coil burner
oven has a computer board for operation.
if you do not find the problem there then change control board
defective relay or computer chip

I need to replace the trays underneath the burners on my stove. How do I remove the burner?


The stove top elements lift up a bit a the oposite side of the element leads leading out of the burner. The burners then pull out of the electrical socket. OUT SIDEWAYS NOT UP.

Burner Heating element doesn't heat


Check power to element with a voltmeter. If there is power, the element is bad. If not power, than switch or relay is likely faulty. You can also test them with an ohmmeter

Replacement Range element not heating


red light means power is on in the wires. maybe the plug is very dirty, wire disconnected. if you mesured power at the connector, there is no reason a good burner would not work unless that when plugged in its not getting a good contact

Burners, oven will not heat, all lights work


Sounds like you are only getting 120 volts. All heating elements require 240 volts to operate. Start by taking the covers off the back of the range and looking for loose or burnt off wires. Look first at were the range cord connects onto the range. If all OK with range wires, check wires inside range receptacle (where the range cord plugs in) and also the connections on the household circuit breaker or fuses. If you use a meter to test for 240, you may see it, but if a connection is poor, it may not be good enough to supply the required power.

You have an electrical fault in the connection to your stove or in your home. I believe that the neutral connection that is one of the three or four wires connecting your stove is loose or lifted off. Get an electrician in to solve your problem.
