Large Dual Element Is Not Working

My range is a ceramic top that has a dual element with a selection switch for small or large and then three other cooking areas and a middle simmer burner. The large dual element is not working. If you select the larger setting the outer ring will burn and get hot, but the center remains cool and not working. Anybody know what the problem could be? I haven't used it, but maybe 200 times and it is only 1.5 yrs old.

Re: Large Dual Element Is Not Working

Check the center ring. If it is open replace it.

I have KitcheAid KERS 807, electric stove/oven range. Left lower part of ceramic stove top that has single/dual heater sizes is malfunctioning. Single one is still working but from recent dual does not.I...

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

Right front burner only works on "small element". Large element will not come on. Do i need a new burner?

Hi Will Lawler - If the small element turns on but the large element does not, then more than likely, the range has a faulty burner or switch. If I was in your position, I would personally contact a professional for an accurate diagnosis and to assist with the repairs.

Whirlpool Gold Range GJP 852400 LF dual element does not work

It is telling you that you have a problem with that element. Just like a "check engine" light in your car, it won't go off untill problem is fixed. Buy, and install a new element, easy to put in

Burner seems to be wired backwards

You have to access the underside of the cook top. Does the back right work correctly? If so switch the wires on the back left to match the right burner.

Small burner of dual surface(right front) stopped working.

Does yours have the (small large burner switch)? If so, try switching it back and forth. It could be defective or your small burner element is bad.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working

similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
