How do you replace a burner switch on a Frigedaire Glasstop Stove

The right front cooktop element will not shut off...it seems to be stuck on "HI". From everything I've seen on websites, it appears that the burner switch needs to be replaced. Professional Series Model # PLEF398CCC.

    My controls are on the back panel above the cooking surface.

    Hello,



    That is correct. Definitely one of the switches are stuck "on". Are your controls on the front of this oven or on the back panel above the cooking surface?



    Thanks

Hello,

The repair on this stove will be relatively easy then. All you are going to have to do is pull out the stove from the wall and remove the upper part of the back panel where the burner switches are.

Remove the knob and take out the screws that hold the switch to that front panel. Then from there just match up the wires to the new switch off the old one.

This repair will turn out to be pretty cut and dry for you. If you have anymore questions please ask.

Thanks Again,
Bill

How do i fix a heating element on my electric cooktop


Most top elements are just a plug in.. find where the element joins the body of the stove and firmly pull on the element straight back from that point. MAKE SURE THE POWER TO THE STOVE IS TURNED OFF AT THE BREAKER

Where are the fuses for the Sears Kenmore stove to elements located on Model C880 675080L0


Most likely no fuses. Either the element or the switch that turns it on is bad. If lighat comes on when you turn on burner the switch is probably ok and the burner went bad.

There are 2 likely causes. It is more likely that the element is open circuited and needs replacing. The hotplate controller could also be faulty. The circuit needs to be tested to determine the faulty part.

Heating element stays on when turned off


The thermostat (that is the dial that you turn to energize the heating elements) is the only thing that connects power to and disconnects power from the heating element. It is bad.

You can unplug the unit and remove the thermostat. Take it to a parts supplier and get a new one and install it. Your problem will go away.

Right front electric stove is stuck on high without shutting off, regardless if knob is switched to off. Needed to unplug the stove completely from electricity.


it depends on the model and manufacturer of your stove .. some have solid state relays that could be shorted (usually computer controlled stove) or a conventional relay (for cycling) that may have a stuck contact .. if its a conventiional stove with spiral cooking surface (not smoothtop) .. then you can make sure the burner is not hot and the stove is unplugged .. then you can simply lift and pull the burner out of its socket .. that will get you working temporarily on the other burners until ;you can fix the problem .. that burner could have an internal short to ground .. easy to check with an ohm meter or by substitution of one of the other burners .. if another burner does the same thing then suspect the relay or control switch ... if the substitute burner works properly then replace the defective one ..

Kenmore 790.9641240, while using stove top power burner (front left) a loud pop was heard and I thought I saw a blue flash (like an arc) above the pan, the next day received a slight electrical tingle...


Tom (Tchange): I also had arc/pop/short of SSB like g_royer. This was preceded over a few days by the Element ON indicator always ON (with all surface select switches OFF). I found the arc marks and burns on the SSB and replaced it. Element ON indicator went OUT, but like you, element no longer heats. I just checked continuity for each of the relays on the Lockout Board. In spite of the error designation on the Wiring Diagram (swapping P3 with P6), I found an OPEN relay for that element. Now to order the Lockout Board, just like g_royer.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

It is not the cartridge. It is the ignition switch (sometimes called a cooktop switch) I found mine on ebay. In particular it is a faulty rear switch. Save your money on the cartridge.
