I understand that you are having trouble with the left front burner on your Frigidaire range, model# FEF355. I see that the burner heats up to a glowing red hot temperature, no matter what you set the dial to. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.
When power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock" button, then within 5 seconds press and hold the up or down arrows until the correct time of day appears.
Once you have set the time, turn on the left front burner, on the lowest setting. If the burner is still glowing red hot, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your range and determine what is causing the burner to glow red hot on all settings. Hope this is helpful.
The switch for the right front burner is defective and needs to be replaced,its bad as far as internally when turned on no matter what its set it the interal contact is stuck on only high so their is no setting it will work on except high. By replacing the switch it will work on the various settings and not just high.
If set to high, burners should remain on. If set to medium high let's say, they would be on for maybe 70 percent of the time, off for 30 percent of the time. If set to warm, they might be on only 10 percent of the time, off 90 percent. There is a high temp limiter which could turn a burner off. If you have a burner on high and are cooking on that burner and it goes off, the high temp limiter may be faulty. It is an integral part of the burner, and would require replacement of the offending burner. Burners are individually replaceable after lifting up the glass cook top.
Glas tops usually detect both heat and time of unit on cycle. notice how burner turns on and off when on lower settings. the biggest issue i get on glass tops is cookware. the cookware should "FLAT!!" bottoms, owners manual suggests using a straight edge to determine. I have tested very expensive cookware ($200 a pot) and it seems to not be flat enough. much expensive cookware is designed to be used on gas tops. pans should also be of a medium weight. I tell people before they buy a glass top, plan on spending nearly as much on your cookware as on the range. A good set of Calphalon (not an advertisement) non-stick is about $500 -$600. The top has built in sensors that shut the burner down when heat is trapped in an air pocket under the pan. this causes the burner to shut down prematurely and take much longer to cook.
