Hi,

Recheck the wiring to that switch you replaced, the light circuit was wired wrong, some switch have moved terminals on them so recheck them all.

Good Luck

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: 5 burner tappan stove. oven takes a long time to

By this description you gave it sounds as your oven burner has a flash back ,when it is like that does your flame look very yellow and gives off a Funny Smell ( which i Will think it is CARBON MONOXIDE . Remove the Oven burner make sure you watch for any wires attached to the burner (yes even in a Gas Stove) that would be part of your safety device . Make sure there is NO Rubbish in your Burner and your Burner
Well . Clean it out Make sure your Injector is Clear Carefully replace your Burner Making sure it fits over the Injector ,Replace any wirer if you removed any and relight

SOURCE: whirlpool stove top- two problems. 1) burner is

If all other burners working as they should, I'd check that bad one for partially plugged orifice. Try poking a small piece of wire through orifice hole to clean it. As far as igniter goes, and they are all connected to one source for spark, and separate wires run to each, make sure there is no breaks in small wire, as well as check that little ceramic igniter has a clean tip, if not clean with nail file or sand paper, and make sure it is same position at burner as others, as in close enough for spark to arc across to burner. if still no spark, try swapping wire with another, if it works, change wire, if not replace little ceramic piece at burner.

SOURCE: LIGHT STAYS ON FOR HOURS BUT THE TOP HAS COOLED

if its going out, its probably ok
its not a light indicating the burner is on, rather that the glass is abcove 100 degrees and still not safe to put something on
2 hours is a bit long but it depends on how fst the surface can cool of
you can test this by trying to cool it off faster with a fan ans see what happens

Cook top indicator lights stay on long after it has cooled off. The largest cook circle sometimes doesn't reduce heat when the dial is changed


Cook top indicator light will stay on as long as the stove is hot I think. Also, the burners don't heat real steady? or evenly or true to their settings even, quite often. they also take a really long time to cool down as well as to adjust temperatures, so it may just be that it is taking an awfully long time for it to cool down in order to adjust.

Lift the top of your stove, then look for a connector or plug, wire that has pushed up near or against the stove top. Where the wires connect to the burners one or more may be loose an needs tightening.

Whirlpool ceramic cooktop


Scott,
On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace
