Re: Electric element does not turn off except after...

The contacts in the control switch have fused. Replace the switch. You can probably do this yourself. Part should run about $25.

Broken knob

Turn off the power to the appliance. Squirt WD40 liberally all round the knob, trying to get it in behind it. Wiggle the knob and press it down and up if possible to let the WD40 oil work in to the dirty or stuck joints. Leave for a few hours and wiggle it again to see if its loosened up.

The left top element is not working, the control knob lights up but doesn't heat. Is it the element or the switch? Mod#JED8430BDB Ser#1414040011A Schott Ceran

It could be either. The only way to properly check is by dismantling the cooktop and checking the circuit with a volt meter or test lamps.

Kitchenaid KECC502 Electric Cooktop: LED light at the left rear knob is always on but the left rear burner single or dual does not work. I tried to turn knob on and off but nothing enable burner.

I wish I had the exact answer, because I have the same exact problem!!! You posted this about a month ago, which is when my unit started having LED "on" problems. Just in the past week, the top left power on LED will not go off, and nothing I can do gets the dual large burner to come on. Any thoughts??? Reply to:

My Viking VECU105 electric cooktop has one burner which will not regulate the temperature. It can be turned on and off with the control knob, but after that, there is no temperature control. Any ideas on...

It will need either a dual infinite or infinite switch, If the burner has an inner an outer element then it requires the dual.

Firstly turn power off at breaker.

The unit needs to be removed from the cut out and the cover removed from below the swtichs. the knob taken off and the secureing screws removed, then take note of the layout of the wiring and the poistion of the switch, then swap the wires, reassemble test and then re-install
