It depends on the model and manufacturer of your stove .. some have solid state relays that could be shorted (usually computer controlled stove) or a conventional relay (for cycling) that may have a stuck contact .. if its a conventiional stove with spiral cooking surface (not smoothtop) .. then you can make sure the burner is not hot and the stove is unplugged .. then you can simply lift and pull the burner out of its socket .. that will get you working temporarily on the other burners until ;you can fix the problem .. that burner could have an internal short to ground .. easy to check with an ohm meter or by substitution of one of the other burners .. if another burner does the same thing then suspect the relay or control switch ... if the substitute burner works properly then replace the defective one ..

How to shut off the ignition switch on wolf stove


there is no way to do so. If it is continually clicking it is usually due to a boil-over or excessive water usage while cleaning. The water gets into the spark switch and completes the circuit. One suggestion is to unplug the unit for a few days to allow time to dry out. Another is to use compressed air and blow it into the spark switches (located at base of knob shaft).If neither of these correct it, a replacement switch may be needed.

I've used you guys once before - right the first time so trying again for a different problem. I've got a Frigidaire glass-top electric range (model PLEF398CCD) and 2 of the four burners stay on...


Hello,
Thanks for using Fixya once again we appriciate it!

The problem with your stove is going to be with the infinate switch(what ya are calling knob) for the burners that giving ya trouble are shorted and the contacts inside of it are welded so they permanantly are stuck on the HIGH setting. To repair that the switches for the affected burners would need to be replaced.

The part number for those switches is 316095503 they could be purchased at your local appliance partstore or online at;

sounds like the switch is bad.i looked up you stove and it looks like the front left is the largest burner.you can call your parts store,give them the model number,tell them what burner you're having a problem with and they will sell you the correct infinite switch,when you get it,unplug the stove,remove the top back panel,pull off the knob,remove the two screws that hold the switch in place,pull one wire off at a time and connect it to the new switch,should take you no more than 30 minutes

How do you replace a burner switch on a Frigedaire Glasstop Stove


Hello,

The repair on this stove will be relatively easy then. All you are going to have to do is pull out the stove from the wall and remove the upper part of the back panel where the burner switches are.

Remove the knob and take out the screws that hold the switch to that front panel. Then from there just match up the wires to the new switch off the old one.

This repair will turn out to be pretty cut and dry for you. If you have anymore questions please ask.

Thanks Again,
Bill
