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: Oven heat

There is a bottom hidden element that is the main element used for baking and cleaning. If its not heating then the element has gone bad and needs replacing. If you have a volt meter then you can confirm this by checking the voltage between the two terminals sticking out of the rear of the range. There should be 240vac across the two. If you have that then you need a new element if you don't then you need a new control board.

SOURCE: Broken Glass on Cooktop

Ouch. The glass top does have to be replaced but I just ran the partial model number on your range and if you're at the comp. I hope you are sitting down. Replacing it not bad. Purchasing tho is rediculous. Retail suggested price just for the top is 600.00. Rediculous pricing but GE is like that sometimes. Sorry but repairing the glass is not possible and getting it from a glass shop isn't either. Sorry for the not so good news. Rick

Tip

Surface Burner Replacement on Electric Smooth Top Range


Steps necessary to replace one of the surface elements on a smooth top electric range.


Before you begin:

1. UNPLUG the range before servicing.

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.

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.

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.

Which fuses for Hotpoint Range Diamond Series?


The higher Amp fuses are for the oven elements and the lower amp fuses are for the burners on top and the lighting if applicable. Some models have it printed on a piece of paper next to the fuses holders. Let me know if it helps!

None of the element are not working


Does the top burners work at all? If they do, and the oven isn't working you could need a new element or a new control board. If nothing works, on top or on bottom, then the control board definitely needs to be replaced.

1984 stove, fuses located on the top of stove/ 30amp keeps blowin


It sounds like the element has a short in it. unplug the range, and take the element out and inspect if for burn marks. check the wires going to the element to make sure they have not shorted.

Shattered glass top for Hotpoint range/ how to replace


The cook top on your range should come off by removing 2 to 3 screws under the front edge of the cook top. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Once you have them removed the top should lift up. Please ensure you have the range unplugged and/or the circuit breaker turned off before attempting any repairs to the heating elements. Live voltages are still present with the unit turned off. Now...depending on the type and model of your range, the wiring harness may have a quick disconnect type of plug. If yours is so equipped, replacing the top will be a cinch, because you can remove it from the range to work on it. Take the old top and new top and place them next to each other upside down on a padded surface. Placing some towels on a kitchen table or counter top works best. Now all you have to do is carefully transfer the entire harness and burner elements to the new cook top. You should be able to move the entire assembly with all the burners still connected. A second set of hands will make the process go much easier. If your range does not have the quick disconnect type of wiring harness have someone hold the cook top up or prop it up with something. Carefully remove the element mounting brackets from the cook top (with all the elements still attached). Carefully support all the wires as you do so, and lay the entire assembly (elements and wires) on top of the oven cavity insulation. Once you have everything disconnected from the cook top, discard the old one and position the new one in place. Carefully reinstall the elements while supporting the wires. Additional care should noted not to handle the ceramic material of the elements and/or the heat coils themselves. They are very fragile and the oil from your hands can potentially damage the elements and shorten the life of them. Let me know if this helpful to you. If you get stuck along the way, or have any questions, please respond to this posting by adding additional comments.
