How to replace an element


This could be a couple of issues, but unfortunately if it's your element, you would have to replace the entire element, not just the middle part. What's the rest of your model number? I can find a part number for you. (KECD806R****)

KDRS505XSS freestanding double oven range has wiring faults and will not heat. How do we fix them?


Hi,

I would have this unit checked because the electronic control is 300.00 for this unit. I ran into this and the control was the fault not the wiring to the elements, but I can't tell you to change this because I won't miss lead you like that. Several tests need to be done to rule out a shorted element before the replacement of the control unit p#W10365424, most electronics are not returnable due to there nature of people swopping them and returning them. I think a service call is needed to be sure of the issue you have.

Good Luck

How to dismount KitchenAid cooktop model KECT 365


Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

Radiant cooktop made a pop noise and doesn't work


Your radiant heat element is probably blown. Call kitchenaid for information and replacement part numbers then search online for a good price.

One of the burners on my kitchenaid cooktop will not heat up. What do you think the problem is? Is this something that can be easily repaired?


If it is not a glass top stove, with the power OFF, and cold, pull out a working element of the same diameter and install it where the non-working element was. Try it now. If it works, replace the heating element. If it does not, check for voltage at the element connector. CAREFULLY. Worst case is that the switch requires replacing.

Dual element stays on high


Replace your burner switch, order with model number, sometimes called an infinite switch. This is a common problem, although we suspect that power surges are causing some of these problems. Appliance Specialists

Coil element on kitchen aid model ker1201 slow to


some of the coiled eyes have two coils(elements). one of the coils can burn into at any point around the element rendering it useless while the other can still work. when you lift the glass top you will see the elements are shaped like springs. the elements metal is very britlle.it is you have to replace the entire eye to fix it. the coil most likely had a very gap in the break and acted like a short making and breaking connection until the gap was too wide then nothing. easy fix. just replace the entire eye (power UNPLUGGED!!!) match the old wires with the new part as you take the old part off. I mark them even with a sharpie. it has 3 to 5 wires on that plug into the eye unit. estimated cost for the part online is about 40 to 65 bucks.

ELEMENT WONT SHUT OFF


Sounds like that specific element has shorted to ground inside it's sheath. You'll probably find the element does not get as hot as it normally would.
A fuse will not blow, or breaker not throw, because of the point in the element that the element has grounded.

Elements are available from a number of resources.

A way to test if the element is shorted to ground:

Tools needed -

Ohmeter

1)Disconnect power from the appliance
2) Remove the element (Sometimes they are plugged in, sometimes the wires screw onto the ends of the element.
3) Set the Ohmeter to Rx1000 or more.
4) Measure the resistance between the outside metal sheath, and either of the two power connection points on either end of the element. Under any condition, you should not get a reading. If you do, the element is bad, and you need to get a new one. They are not repairable.
5) Re-install in the reverse removed.
6) Check all connections are clean and all is re-assembled as you originally found it.
7) Turn on power and check if element comes on.

It is unlikely the problem is with the control, but it is a possibility. Give me more info about the cook-top (make, model) so I can investigate further.
