Yes, the entire unit must be lifted out - it is probably secured with screws underneath. Then you can remove the screws on the underside of the glass to access the switch. Hope this helps!

One of the burners stays on high. can that be fixed?


Hello, Thank you for your post. Sounds like your having a problem with one of the burners on your cooktop. Yes, you can have this fixed. The burner that stays on high has a bad infinite switch. Once you change out that switch your cooktop will work as normal.

Happy Holidays!

Front burner won't come on. Others fine. Have checked breaker. Is there a reset fuse?


Sorry but no. If you have a burner not working it will be 1 of 2 things. 1st the switch that controls that burner is bad which would be the easiest and less expensive to replace. The other is the element. Good luck but I really do feel it will be the switch.

When the larger burner on the right is on high is melts the plastic control nobs. How do I fix it? Thanks Jim


These burners are not supposed to be operated uncovered. If indeed the burner is covered and it is still causing the controls to burn than the resistance for that burner is failing and the burner should be replaced. Thank you, Dana

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Tripping breaker


Replace the burner and receptacle and you should be short free. You may also need to replace the surface element switch too if it doesn't come on at all or stays on high regardless off knob setting.
