Burner keeps cycling on to high when OFF

Ive got a few year old GE profile glass top oven that recently started cycling the rear burner ON to HIGH when the entire unit is off.

i have had to unplug the unit for safety.

is there any way i can "un plug" the effected burner so i can use the rest of the burners and oven ?

I have a whirlpool 465 super capacity stove. the top burners seem to have a mind of their own. 1 in the back doesnt come on at all and the other go to high heat even if i set them on low settings

No solution, just that you are not alone. We have had our Whirlpool super capacity 465 for 10 years, and about a year ago that large burner started to randomly go to high, even though the control is set to simmer. Ruined a few meals by not being right there watching.

Ge oven temp not correct after clean cycle

What are you cooking pizza. When you get at the high extreme most oven controls are not as accurate and have a wider differential. I assume the measurements are taken without opening the oven.

GE Profile Stove baking option not working

Possibly the bake igniter, the temperature sensor or the electronic oven clock/control. Does broil mode heat properly or does it run cool also? If broil heats to the proper temperature then the temperature sensor is probably ok. That leaves the ignitor or the controller which takes some more troubleshooting. If it is the controller, we repair them at

Hi, this will occur if the oven control senses the oven temperature above 915F-930F

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

Only one ring of the double ring element works

You have faulty regulator, or the element is faulty., not sure how you access the inside.
Hope this helps.

Replacing glass top stove HELP!!!

You can buy replacement tops for your range. Check with your manufacturer for local parts distributors or service locations and they should be able to find you one. There is also online part stores that sell them like anywhere from 150-400$

Won't heat!!!

First, are the burners working right? It is possible that a breaker opened. Cycle your breakers off and then on. Its a shot....

How many elements in your oven? Sounds like one fried. Start the unit with the door open. See which element doesn't glow after a few minutes. Wait for cooldown, open the breakers and then remove it and take it to the appliance repair parts guy to test and replace. should have gotten an error code.

Not that? It will likely be the thermister controlling your temp sense.
