Question about Amana Cooktops

Open Question

My halogen burner won't heat. The othe 3 burners on my cooktop are fine.

The two front burners are halogen and the back two are regular. Just the larger of the two halogen burners is not heating up. Is this repairable or do I have to replace the whole cooktop?

SOURCE: Inop burner on new jenn-air JEC9530 elec flat cooktop

I'm having the same problem with my jec9530. The dual burner just quit working one day. I called jennair and they sent me a replacement "custom control" for free. 6 months later it quit again. I am now considering attempting to put an infinite switch (dual), part #PS786568 in its place. It is not electronic, and it looks like it is used for the jec9536 middle back dual burner. It is only $35, even if it doesn't work like the electronic one I don't care. My wife usually only uses both burners at the same time anyway.

SOURCE: Whirlpool electric Cooktop's one burner not heating

Hi,

Initially, it could either be:

  • open heating element (most likely);
  • open temperature limiter (least likely);
  • faulty/loose connection/wiring (a possibility).
Please confirm that it is a Whirlpool RCC3024 Electric Cooktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Flat cooktop burner not heating up

Try cleaning the knobs. I did the same thing you did (turning the circuit breaker off but that did not solve the problem.

My wife just tried turning the knobs and that seemed to work. It appears that one of the knobs may have been so sticky that the though it's in the OFF position it thinks it's still ON.

SOURCE: Burner only cooks on high heat.

You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

SOURCE: Broken selector switch

TURN OFF CIRCUIT BREAKER. Lift out cooktop, remove all machine screws holding the glass frame. Remove plastic knobs and lift glass top straight up. Make sure rubber gromits are not ripped or torn. Unscrew the small screws on the selector switch and then lift up and tilt over the small aluminum chasis holding the switches to expose the wiring connections. Pull off the wires and pull out the defective switch. Replacre switch, connect wires, re-seat switch chasis, and secure switch with screws. Carefully drop in the glasstop lining up the switch shafts and the rubber grommets. Secure the top with machine screws and drop back in the cutout.

GE profile JP969 fault code F113


I took the cooktop apart I removed the terminal from the main electronic board . The left front burner has 2 white wires and 2 yellow (my case). The 2 white wires lead to the RTD sensor.With an electric meter set on OHMS check continuity between the two wires leading to the RTD sensor .If the reading is more than 1030 ohms is good if not than you need to replace the whole burner that comes as a complete unit with sensor and ribbon heating element.I found it on line for $114.00 +shipping.I wish they sold only the sensor but it would've been too cheap and not worth it for the makers . All connections to that burner are very easy put back together . Some suppliers may ask for as much as $175-$195 for the complete unit .

You may already be aware of this but ... If our ilve ceran cooktop is the same as yours turn the knob past the 12 setting till you feel pressure and it springs back. This is the switch to fire up the marked outer elements.

My large burner at the front does not work, yet when i replace it with\r\nthe large burner at the back it does not work , yet when you put the front burner at the back it works.


Your front burner is fine. Assuming you have an electric cooktop the problem is in the switch that controls that burner. The infinite control switch. Replace it.

Sounds like you have cartridge fuses in your house. When only one is blown it can cause interesting results. The clock is probably feeding back through the burner. This lets enough electricity through to run the clock and othe small things but not enough for heat. Have all the cartridge in your house tested. I'll bet either one of the mains or range ones are bad.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
