The outer ring of the element is most likely broken. You'll need to replace the element.

The cost of the parts you want t o replace will usually exceed the price of a new cooktop.

It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.

Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

One of the burners on my kitchenaid cooktop will not heat up. What do you think the problem is? Is this something that can be easily repaired?


If it is not a glass top stove, with the power OFF, and cold, pull out a working element of the same diameter and install it where the non-working element was. Try it now. If it works, replace the heating element. If it does not, check for voltage at the element connector. CAREFULLY. Worst case is that the switch requires replacing.
