Very often older ranges will have burner valves that become hard to operate. These are usually a tapered core valve that can be greased with a high temperature valve grease.

The element showed HE for Hot Element.
Most likely the switch has welded closed

Frigidaire glass top stove dual element ony works on high no matter were knob is set


Hello Chad;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you have a bad Warmer Infinite Switch.

Once installed, the switch controls your gas range's warmer drawer element. When replacing your gas range's switch, consider replacing its knob (PartsDirect part number 316442403) if it shows significant wear.
To replace your gas range's warmer infinite switch, pull the knob off the switch and remove the screws securing it. Disconnect any wires running to the switch and take note of those connections. Remove the switch and put the new one into its place, reattaching the wires to the same terminals. Be sure to unplug your gas range before beginning the repair.

25433033-yqd4wkymfcifmtxqtu0sd2am-5-0.jpg Part #: 316095500 Cost: $32.00

It is located on the right hand side of your display panel. You have to remove the side panels screws and control panel back to access.

Start shut down


follow this steps and use the Voltmeter, and fix it. God bless you
oubleshoot a thermostat:
  1. Shut off power to the heater at the electric panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Unscrew and remove the electric water heater access panel.
  3. Using a small screwdriver, turn the thermostat dial counterclockwise to lower the temperature, or clockwise to raise it. If the water heater doesn't maintain the proper temperature, test the thermostat.
  4. Disconnect one wire to the upper thermostat to test it. Set a multimeter to RX1 (resistance times 1) and touch a probe to the thermostat terminals as indicated in the owner's manual. Depending on the model and the terminals tested, the tester should show infinity ( open) or about 0 ( closed).
  5. Test the lower thermostat in the same manner.
  6. If necessary, replace the thermostat. Unscrew it from its mounting and install one of the same model, size, and rating. Once you install it, adjust the thermostat following instructions in your owner's manual.
Test and replace a heating element:
  1. Turn off power at the electric panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Remove the access panel on the electric water heater.
  3. Disconnect one of the element wires and set a multimeter to RX1000 (resistance times 1,000). Touch one probe to an element mounting bolt and the other to each element terminal screw, in turn. If the tester displays anything but infinity ( open circuit), replace the element.
  4. If necessary, set the multimeter to RX1 and touch the probes to the terminal screws. If there is any resistance reading at all ( closed circuit), then the element is good. If not, replace it. Both upper and lower elements are tested in the same manner.
  5. To remove the element, first drain the heater.
  6. Disconnect the remaining element wire. Remove the mounting bolts holding the element in place. Remove the element.
  7. Replace the heating element with one of the same model, shape, and rating. Make sure you also replace any installation gaskets.
Test and replace a high-limit cutoff:
  1. Disconnect power to the heater at the electric panel and post a sign warning others not to turn it on.
  2. Remove the upper access panel and push the reset button.
  3. Replace the access panel and turn the power back on. If the water is hot, the reset was the problem. If not, you'll need to turn the power off again and reopen the access panel.
  4. Use a multimeter to test the cutoff terminals for continuity. If faulty, replace with an exact replacement part.

Some elements is in Short circuit, test the procedure before

Our boiler element will not shut off after a while the F1 code appears on the display but the element still won't shut off. We have had to shut off the breaker to shut the range off.


Hello- Bad news- The Elec control is fried. F-1 is the main fault code. A circuit has fused causing power to flow to to broil element. Board is about 150$. Have a tech check all wiring when installing replacement. Electric ovens put in 'self- clean' will eventually burn out the control. Avoid this 'function'. Let me know if this info helps- have more if needed. Thanks- ED

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


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.

Element will not turn off


Sounds like the contacts inside the switch have welded themselves together. You will need to replace the switch. (the one that you mentioned "clicked" to off) If you like, post an Ask Me with your full model number and I will look up the part number for you. This is a fairly easy repair.

Lower element only gets lukewarm bosch single oven model HBL536 a uc


The problem I had was with a Bosch model 536 wall-mount oven, not an airconditioner. Decided it was the lower element that was at fault. Although it showed continuity (dual element 48 ohms and 114 ohms) readings should be approx 24 ohms per element.


Thanks

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working


similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
