    OK, you did get the "infinite switch" correct? How did you wire it? It should be installed with the added jumper wire to the P1 and S1 terminals of the new switch. The Black L1 wire was on the #2 terminal of the old switch, is now attached to the other P1 terminal of the new switch. The red wire on terminal #3, will now be attached to terminal #4 of the new switch. The blue wire #4 will now attach to terminal #4a on the new switch. The wire for the pilot light/indicator light (blue) #5 will attach to terminal # S2 on the new switch. The brown wire #N should now attach to terminal # 2 on the new switch. And the red/orange wire, should connect to terminal # P2 on the new switch.

    I bought and installed the new switch but I am going to recheck the wire in accordance with your instructions above. thks

    OK, keep me posted!

  • Gerry Galet Nov 28, 2012

    All looks ok except I have no blue wire that would connect 4a but have an orange one instead Still stays on high There must be a sensor somewhere that tells the switch to turn off when a certain temp is reached.

    Ok, did you say this was for the dual burner? What is the part number on the switch you replaced?

  • Gerry Galet Nov 28, 2012

    Yes it is for the dual burner which is left front. Part num of switch is 8203538 I am posting this again as I dont know what happen to the first attempt.

    Richard Roth Nov 28, 2012

    OK, there is our problem. That switch is for a single burner. Here is the correct switch for the dual burner.http://bit.ly/V6pgPz

  • Gerry Galet Nov 28, 2012

    I checked with the parts people and I do have the right part as the number you gave me is right on the part it self. The num I gave you replaces it. So back to square one If it isn't the switch then what?

  • Gerry Galet Nov 29, 2012

    Richard.......I played with the wiring a bit. I dont have a blue wire but have a red one instead and hooked it up to terminal 4a and bingo the switch works the way it is suppose to. Thanks for your help.

SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner

Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: kenmore glass top range left front large burner out

check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

remove 4 screws under the trim that surrounds the burner knob panel. They are on the underside and you will be looking straight up to see them.

Slide the trim down and off after removing the screws.

remove the burner grills and caps

remove the 4 brass venturis and you will then be able to lift the cooktop

the valves are easy to get to

Whirlpool electric range burner power light stays on but no heat


Hello givemeanidth.
Welcome to Fixya

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?

Waiting for your reply.
