Check to see that your simmer switch is in the off position, I just had the same problem and checked it back to the power connector and only had 120 V ????, I about to take the switch out and then saw the simmer switch that I never noticed. Clicked it to off and now my wife is happy again. Good Luck, hope your solution is just as easy.

My 30 year old Whirlpool electric stove burners are heating inconsistently, especially the right front. If turned on medium for a while, it will turn red hot. It happens even faster when another burner...


Each burner has its own switch. I suspect your switch on that burner is bad or going bad. Conracts probably burring up from the constant arcing associated with closing and opening. Here is how it works:

The right front burner will not get hot. It is only warm never hot. The burner doesn't turn bright red even when tuned up on high.


hello, try changing that front element(burner)if its easily removable to another side that is working normal. If the element is still dull not heating or glowing normal then replace the element, but if it does, then there is something wrong with the front right element switch or the receptacle.

I have a GE stove that has a red light for HOT SURFACE


The control switch for the right front burner is bad. A new switch will solve the problem.
The situation,while annoying is not dangerous.

Burner dosent get as hot as the others


If you saw a spark from the burner chances are that the burner has shorted out and is in need of replacement.

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.
