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.

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

    Here's the deal. You are going to have to remove the ceramic top. Be careful when you do because the can crack very easily. If you can read a wiring diagram you can trace the wire from it that go to the switch. Can you locate the wiring diagram? Sometimes it's either pasted in back of the range on the cover panel or you can remove the switch panel in back and it will be tucked in with the switches. I may be able to get you one if you can't see it.

    Your going to have to remove the top to check at the element. If you know how to read a wiring diagram and can find the one that either came with or is in or on your range check between the 2 wires that your goes through to see if it is closed or open. If open you are going to need a new coil and will have to remove the top anyhow but be careful as it's very touchy and the wrong move could crack the top then you might as well be looking at a new range. I don't have the diagram for your range but sometimes it is a tan and red (red being the common) or it will be between the yellow and red. Good luck as even the burners aren't cheap either.

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.
