SOURCE: How do I change the element on a Whirlpool Gold range?

If you have replaced the dual element with a new one, and have verified that you have the wiring installed correctly, it may be the infinite switch that controls the element that is bad. That would be the switch behind the control knob for the element in question.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Opening the cook top in a Whirlpool electric range

The cooktop on this model range will lift up, exposing the surface burners and wiring harness. The screws are located along the bottom of the frotn edge of the cooktop. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Just follow these steps:

Before you begin:

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.

2. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.

On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, Follow these steps:

a. Unplug the cook top and leave the elements in place.

b. Place the whole cook top assembly face-down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket).

c. Remove the bad surface element by removing only the bracket pair that the affected element is attached to. Leave the rest of the elements wired together. Write down the wire color codes so you can be sure the new element is installed correctly. HINT: A digital camera can save you some time.

d. When installing the new surface element, make sure you use the same alignment marks (the numbered positions around the perimeter) as the old element. Avoid touching the burner surface and handle with care. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. The elements are fragile.

If the wiring harness does NOT unplug, prop the cook top in place and install the surface element from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the assembly until you have screwed it back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed.

If you have any questions about this repair, please let me know. You can reference searspartdirect.com for some helpful exploded view diagrams of you range for assistance if you need it. I hope you find this information helpful.

Wire burning smell whirlpool range. Happens when oven or top are turned on. Smoke come out under control panel.


Had the same problem with my Whirpool range. Took off the rear panel and carefully plugged in and turned on the top oven.

One came off of the top element in the top oven and the other fed back into the black plug on the control panel. Part in quests is held on with a single screw and has a part no. of 7403P993-60

I have a glass cook top and one of the burners does not work how do you get at the element to replace it


Good Morning Guest,
Fist of all... Do you know for sure that you Halogen Buner needs replacing...I have found that the Infinity Switch burns out before the element does.
With the power off, remove the back panel.
Open the oven and look up where the top of oven door meets the top of oven. There maybe a screw or 2. also check the back to seeif any screws are there.
You should have a service personel help you do this because if you break it, the project will cost more.
Repace the Infinity switch first then your removal of service top

Burners & clock are working, but oven, brioler & self-cleaner won't. Error F-0, EO


Brandyz Most likely the problem with your range is the spark module. It is located in the control panel on the right hand side. You can access it by removing the back panel held with four screws from the back. Remember to unplug the range first. The name plate with the model number and the serial number is on the frame behind the storage drawer. You can buy the spark module here: http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=SrmyP8LkIos&offerid=92089.545301030&type=10&subid= It comes with installation instructions. Gendos...post back
