Question about Electrolux Cooktops

Open Question

I have an Westinghouse/electrolux ceramic cooktop model PHH285W. When I turn on one of the elements it is full on no variability at all. Is this a thermostat or something? Can I purchase a new part and fix myself?

They have a thermal overload resistor in the burner itself and they have a propensity to burn out, making it either all off or on, or it could be the infinite switch. I would check the resistor first. All the way cool you should get close to no resistance. Heat it up with a blow dryer and there should be more resistance. For the infinite switch, you will have to check resistance across the leads that correspond to each pinout as to what it goes to. You can find this out by backtracing the wire to each terminal on the block. Replacement of either part is the only option, there are no safe alternatives to repair them. Hope this helps. BTW, you can go here for parts.

there is a problem with either the elements or the controls,i doubt it is the elements as its unlikely that all of them are faulty at once.the control knobs or control panel is more likely the problem.

How do I clean under the electric elements on my basic westinghouse stove


Hello friend, thanks for your post!

I understand that you would like to clean under the cooktop on your Frigidaire range. Could you provide me with your model number please? You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the storage drawer on the right hand side. With this information I can better assist you. -Matt

Sometimes after a power failure the p c board needs re setting. Turn off the power for a few minutes that allows it time to re set. Turn it back on then individually turn on each element for a couple of minutes.

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
