Question about Whirlpool RF364 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Uncontrollable Burner One of my burners is not working properly. It will ramp up to high no matter what setting the control is on. Then when you shut it off it will remain on high. You have to turn the control knob completely around to get it to shut off. Is this the regulator, burner or control?

GE Spectra burner stays on high

if this is the one with the auto temp burner , defined by a sensor sticking up from its center , this maybe a normal condition for it without a pan on it , as I had one of these come on my new stove , as being a exe chief for 6 years id always set my flame height before setting the pan down , this feature took me some getting used too !!! to say the least !!

but now that im used to it , its great I love it , no more burnt on messes , works great with caramelizing things !!!

Hello Miguel;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are two electrical components that will cause this problem. The most probable cause is the burner element. Each of your burner elements have a independent temperature sensor. The sensor controls the burner element temperature.
Substitution Part Number: 4453909 Cost: $85.00

This surface element (part number 4453909) is for electric ranges, including Whirlpool electric range model GJC3034RB00.
Unplug the range or shut off the house circuit breakers to disconnect electrical power to the range before replacing the surface element. Wear gloves to protect your hands when replacing surface element on your electric range.
This is a manufacturer substitution. Part may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to priorparts including 9759351.

PART NUMBER: 8523698 Cost: $71.00

The other less likely electrical component is Surface Element Control Switch. Each burner has a independent control switch.

Cost: $46.00

To check the switch: Remove the switch 2 contacts on the left. With a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Put one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. If the switch is good you meter will read "0" Ohms.

Ge true temp stove top burner wont stay on

dont know how old unit is or how familiar you arewiththe unit, but the burner will need to heat up and cycle off/on. no matter how high or low you set the setting it will heat to a specific temp and cycle off, if hte burner remained RED all the time the glass would crak( so dont go by appearnce of burner, the glass should dictate the temp
