Dual element does not regulate it's ON or Off only

Setting the dial has no effect on the dual element shtting off. Even at Low the element stays on. This seems very dangerous and I am suprised there has not been a recall or notification on this.

Re: Dual element does not regulate it's ON or Off only

If your talking about the element on the surface, I will say you have a bad switch. Its the only thing that controls the element. You can unplug the range and remove the rear cover and check the switch with a ohm meter. But like I say its the only cotrol of the element so you will want to replace it. Good luck

My LRG 30357ST gas range burners flame are too low, How can I increase them?

Do they go out on low setting? If so then your regulator is faulty, Never adjust flame higher unless reg. checks out fine. Even then get a qualified tech to do that

Hob regulator wiring

OK, they are wired so that the two elements are switched in and out, to form, a single, a dual but in series, and a dual, but in parallel. like this Low, ONE, Element ONLY, The Other is out of circuit. Med, TWO elements are connected using the switch, in SERIES with each other. High, you switch TWO elements in PARALLEL. Simply meter the switch out to do that when each position is turned. Just think of it like, It's just two resistors, wired up. single, series, & parallel.

Dual element burner not working

You have to use a voltmeter and test the voltage where the wires connect to the element. If you have voltage (probably 240volts) then the switch is good.

You then remove the element, and check it with an ohm meter to verify that the element is open.

Sounds like the switch to me, but you have to check it

Top element only stays on high

The trouble would be a failed infinite heat switch. This is the adjustable switch you are using to set the element to low, medium or high.

**Use extreme caution if you are making the repairs yourself.....Turn off circuit breaker and verify power is off with a meter. 240VAC is present at the switch. In addition, the glass top and elements are very fragile.

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.

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working

similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.

The cooker stays warm when mains cooker switch is on.

Either teh grill element or the oven heating element is fault or the thermostat or grill regulator, locate which element is warm, if the grill then it is most likely the regulator, if it is the oven it is the thermostat. Engineer
