It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Is burner switch 4391989 replacement for switch 311838


I can answer this. I installed this part in my Whirlpool Range and found immediately that it burns too hot. I wound up shopping around until I found the original part. The 4391989 part works but it will burn way too hot. plus it has a "jerry-rigged" fit. The 311838 is 7.5-9.3 amps while the 4391989 is something like 9-11 amps.

Each burner has its own switch. I suspect your switch on that burner is bad or going bad. Conracts probably burring up from the constant arcing associated with closing and opening. Here is how it works:

Since you are having problems with multiple elements the problem is probably the circuit board that controls them. This can be ordered and replaced. Be sure to unplug the stove before getting into the circuit board though.

1 burner won't get hot


A good guess would be that the burner's O.K. but the Low-Medium High swich needs replacement. I assume that the burner does not get hot in ANY position of the knob? Let me knoiw.
