Question about Kitchen Ranges
I tried to replace one element, (at a cost of $50) but it didn't solve the problem...they often quit working mid-cooking, and then we have to get a silicon trivet and wiggle the burner about until we hear it make the aweful electrical noises again, and then it works for a bit longer (sometimes for the rest of the meal). I am assuming it is the terminals that are to blame! I want to know, if this sounds correct, and if it is worth replacing the terminals costwise, or if I should just get a new stove?

Shut the breaker off! These are the exact symptoms that a tenant of ours reported for their range. I went to check the range and found that one of the power wires on the terminal block in the back of the range was burning itself up. It had actually started a small wire fire. You need to pull the range out of it's hole and unplug it. Remove the panel in the back above where the cable goes into the range. Examine the power wires and terminal block carefully, because I bet you'll find one of the wires is burning up and needs to be repaired. Please write back and let know what you find.

SOURCE: Burner no longer functions
two thiongs, you might have a bad switch( under control knob), or before you try that ck the old elemnt that you replaced, on the back of the limiter( the glass rod that goes through elemnt itlself), you'll see little letters 1a,2a,1b,2b.--- new replacemnets depending on age are wired differently, they too will have 1a2a1b2b but in different position. id check that first

SOURCE: baking element
oh bleep, right? well, if you're lucky this will get you going again. 1. disconnect power to range. 2. remove back metal cover just above range power cord (usually 5 quarter inch hex screws) 3. look for burnt off wire leading to/from bake element. If yes, 4. strip ends of broken wire and splice with ceramic wire nut if no 4. bad news. replace ERC (electronic range control) you fried something on the board. It's got the clock display and all the electronics behind it.

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.
I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.
Hope this helps.
