You must replace the burner switch for that burner.

    Unplug the range.

    Remove the small panel on the rear of the control panel.

    Remove the switch knob.

    Remove the 2 screws holding the front of the switch.

    Remove the wires from the switch.

    Note what wires go to what terminal designation.H-1,H-2,L-1,L-2 and one for the light.

    You should purchase the switch before you remove the wires.

    Then you can remove one at a time and place them on the new switch.

Frigidaire stove front large/small burner combination. Large burner works but the small burner in the centre of the large burner does not come on at all with any heat. ??


This is a inner/outer burner type assembly? Sounds like a glass top.
Either way, your switch for that burner or the burner needs to be replaced.
If you are able and it is possible, inter change switches to see if it makes a difference. Interchange Large with large, small with small.
If yous switches are connected as one unit, you will not be able to do this. Sorry, I have not looked up your wiring diagram.

Since you are having problems with multiple elements the problem is probably the circuit board that controls them. This can be ordered and replaced. Be sure to unplug the stove before getting into the circuit board though.

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.

Please take the time to rate this solution

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Glasstop stove chiped


Keep using the range if the glass is cracked all the way through it will appear quickly. Then the glass top will have to be replaced . There is no fix for the glass top. You might get lucky and nothing will happen.
