Try switching the grill to the other side if it works the ceramic burner is bad replace the ceramic burner. burners and grill coils unplug when you pull them out. The left one pulls out from the front the right one pulls put from the rear. you can enterchange the burners on either side.
Had same issue - replaced the ceramic ignitors and most of my problem was solved. Apparently ignitors require replacement every 3-5 years. When they start to go it takes forever for your oven to heat up ... they don't glow properly causes the gas valve stays partially closed - ie hence less flame/heat. It may also significantly increase the amount of time it takes for the burner to light at all - essentially for the same reason.
On my oven the other issue was the burner itself ... it had corroded somewhat so the flame didn't automatically 'move' around to the other side of the burner. I removed the burner & cleaned the surface with a brass brush - problem soved. So essentially I had two issues - burner requiring maintenance & replacment of the ignitors.
As an aside I'm no expert - just relaying my experience.
Pull out the bottom drawer and you will find the spark module. I strongly suspect it is weak. Here is a video that shows operation: This one shows the module on the backside but I looke dup yours and it is below in the backside of the bottom drawer. Ok here is what i think The igniters could be dirty and I have a video showing how to check that plus another video to show how to remove those pesky switches on the top burners and spark module operation.
Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.
You said, have a Whirlpool electric range (model rf363pxpt0) with standalone
burners - the burner power indicator light stays lit whether the heat
control knob is on or off, there is no heat coming from the burner on
or off. You pulled the burner from the receptacle and one of the tabs
broke off and stayed in the receptacle. You removed the tab and made sure
no pieces remained in the receptacle then bought a replacement burner,
no change. You put the replacement burner in the back burner of the same
size and had heat within 10 seconds. You changed out the burner with the
one that had been in the back of the range, no heat. As long as the
breaker to the range is on the power light stays lit but no power to
that one burner only.
What is the model number and the age of your range?
Have you thought about reading the manual, it states that the heat goes off and on to maintain the proper heat while cooking, You should turn the burner off a few minutes before done because even on off the burner is still cooking while it is cooling down to go off. And you do not need to have as high of heat to cook that's what so great about this ceramic tops you save time and energy.
Lift the ceramic top and look at the burnner to see if it is bad or not.
You only have to take 2 screws in the front of the ceramic top at the bottom, just open the oven door and look at the corners.
Don't forget to unplug the stove first
ok, first check that the ranges are seated properly , clean the connectors , do a test , if it still doing the same problem , then you need to replace the modules of each range thats not working,in this case 2 modules.
