Hi, There is no sure reason. This just happens. The element had a weak spot on it and finally gave way. Change the element and you should be fine. I hope this helps. Anything else I can assist you with, plesae let me know.

How do I change an element from my stove which is a deluxe 234 model..very old stove but goe's well

Unplug the range from the wall first. Just raise the cook top and the elements are attached to the bottom of it, probably by four screws. Note how the wires are plugged in then unplug them, unscrew the element that don't work, screw the new one in plug the wires back and put the cook top back down. The wires should have blade connectors to easily unplug and replug.

Hotpoint electric range - I was boiling water and the pan stuck to the coil it then sparked and coil broke in half. The circiut breaker did not trip. Can this be fixed?

Yes. The elements are individually replaceable. Depending on the element, the small one P/N is WB30X342,

the large element P/N is WB30X348.

Unplug the cook-top or turn the breakers off. Pull the burner out horizontally and upward to expose the screw connectors. Unfasten the wires, remove the element, place new element in place, conect the wires, and reinstall.

The element on top of the stove stays on

Replace the switch for the bad element. It is stuck internally in the ON position.
