    The complete model # on my GE Electric Range with the burner control problem is JBS27B Y3WH

  • ecrochon Feb 04, 2009

    My large burner on the front left side of my Kenmore Electric range will sometimes heat up to the highest setting when it is on a lower one. I switched the large elements around to see if it was the element or if it was an electrical problem and it did the same thing. So I know its an electrical problem but where to go from here, what do I look for?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    where is the sticker? I think my may be the knob, because when I try to turn it down it will not go down until I turn the knob the whole way around and then back on to get it to a low setting.

    It seems to be in the knob. When I turn the knob the whole way around it burner will go off and then I can turn it on low and it will hold.

I have a Belling Richmond dual fuel cooker (electric & LPG) and can't simmer anything on the burners because the flame is too high even at the lowest setting

Most gas ranges and cooktops are set for natural gas at the factory. If the flames are too high this could be an indication the range or cooktop was improperly converted from a natural gas setting to LP, (Liquid Propane) gas setting. Contact your installer or local Gas Company to correctly convert the range or cooktop.

Hello Miguel;

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

There are two electrical components that will cause this problem. The most probable cause is the burner element. Each of your burner elements have a independent temperature sensor. The sensor controls the burner element temperature.
Substitution Part Number: 4453909 Cost: $85.00

This surface element (part number 4453909) is for electric ranges, including Whirlpool electric range model GJC3034RB00.
Unplug the range or shut off the house circuit breakers to disconnect electrical power to the range before replacing the surface element. Wear gloves to protect your hands when replacing surface element on your electric range.
This is a manufacturer substitution. Part may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to priorparts including 9759351.

PART NUMBER: 8523698 Cost: $71.00

The other less likely electrical component is Surface Element Control Switch. Each burner has a independent control switch.

Cost: $46.00

To check the switch: Remove the switch 2 contacts on the left. With a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Put one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. If the switch is good you meter will read "0" Ohms.

On my electric stove, one of the burner caught on fire, and now the indicator light stays on even after the stove is turned off

If the light remains on, that would indicate the circuit was damaged. The light goes on when the circuit is complete. This usually happens when the burner gets hot. If it caught fire, then the stove is registering it as hot all the time.

Left front range top burner temerture control issues

Good Morning Friend,

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.

-Best Regards-

Converted HotPoint RGA720 to LP, burners and oven work fine, all pilots flames are still too high?

I have this model too and have had to replace two thermocouples because the pilot is so high it frys them. We replaced the whole modulator last time and it still goes out so I have to relight The pilot is at the lowest setting, it's a GE/Hotpoint issue that was not recalled. I do like the hot 125 degree oven for drying sun dried tomatoes and keeping plates warm.

Large electric burners not working on lowest "LO" setting

Unplug the range and remove the problem elements.
With a flashlight, look inside the element receptacle for burned or disfigured terminals.
If they are damaged they can be replaced.
If the element terminals are OK you have defective switches.
