the 8" run on 240volts,the 6" only on 120 volts,check the input volts on high at this element connection for 240v.a.c. on high,otherwise the supply line is missing one leg of power or theres a burned wire or component
You may have a cracked element, they expand when heated and cause a separation in the element. You really have to put a voltmeter on it to test it under load. If the voltage remains constant while the element is heating and cooling, then indeed you have a bad element.
If you don't have a voltmeter, or don't want to perform this test, buy a heating element and replace it, if you have the same problem, you'll have a spare element
Scott, On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace
no they are made to cycle that way they are halagen and cycle with a sensor dont work like the old coil ones do enegey efficent and hotter than old coils dont use them without a pan on them to reflect heat back to the sensor to prolong their life
