My Westinghouse Avondale 529 hotplates go red hot when on medium heat setting, sometimes even unable to turn off. This has happened to both front hotplates but doesn't happen every time.

The hot plate needs a new thermostat. When thermostats go bad, there is no control of temperature and they stay on high. The circuit remains closed, not allowing any cycling of power, which regulates the temp

My 30 year old Whirlpool electric stove burners are heating inconsistently, especially the right front. If turned on medium for a while, it will turn red hot. It happens even faster when another burner...


Each burner has its own switch. I suspect your switch on that burner is bad or going bad. Conracts probably burring up from the constant arcing associated with closing and opening. Here is how it works:

I have a westinghuse fan with light it has four wires on it green, blue, black, and red what are they ie live neutral etc


Question posted under 3-speed switch

1) Are you replacing the 3-speed switch?
This is a field with much discussion because Westinghouse 4-wire fan switches vary.
Process of elimination is needed to find hot line. From there you test each wire to the hot line wire to determine which wire or combination of wires makes up low, medium, and high speed.
Open following links for some resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#3-speed
http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php
http://www.atlantalightbulbs.com/ecart/catalog/westinghouse-6.html

2) Or are you looking at fan connection wiring at ceiling?
Green wire goes to bare ground.
Fan should have hot and neutral.

Hot line should be black.
Neutral should be white.

Red usually goes to light
Blue is normally not there.

Where is the white neutral wire?

Take multimeter set to read ohms and test black wire to each other wire.
Process of elimination should reveal correct wiring.

Yes i have a westinghouse ppl776 ceramic cooktop and can not regulate temperature on any control knobs ,plates run flatout, is the problem with the control knobs or hotplates


When this occurs the problem is always with the hotplate controllers. Has this happened to all hotplates at the same time or has it occurred over a certain time period?

The left front burner will turn on for a few seconds then turn off then back on and off. It would not heat the pan on it. This is a glass top range. Are there any tests that I can do to find the problem?...


If the rest of the hotplate elements are working correctly and you are performing the same tests with all of them then you have a problem. We know that the hotplate works. When hotplates are faulty they don't turn on and off, they just don't work. This would generally be a hotplate controller problem. It sounds as if the controller is faulty and requires replacing. If you are handy you can switch the suspect hotplate controller with a good one and see what happens. This will confirm our suspicions.

Changing the 3 speed switch on my westinghouse ceiling fan


If you are careful and take the hot coming into the fan from the power source and connect it to the colored wires one at a time, you will be able to find which one is high, med. and low. Then connect them. Hot in is L, 1 is low, 2 is med, 3 is high

The hot plate is heating up when the selector is in off position


Hotplate heating up when regulator/selector switched off. Hi ,this is gil1714 in Scotland. Two possibilities on this one, 1) the regulator is faulty:- replace
2) if the control circuit (regulator) is wired on the neutral side the hotplate may be leaking current to
earth, thereby completing the circuit. This would only occur on a supply that was not protected by
an RCD. If so replace hotplate. Hope this is useful,
