These burners are not supposed to be operated uncovered. If indeed the burner is covered and it is still causing the controls to burn than the resistance for that burner is failing and the burner should be replaced. Thank you, Dana

One burner igniter fails to spark after getting wet


Each burner has its own switch to direct current to the igniter. It appears that one of the four switches burned or shorted out, while the other three survived the flood. These switches are replaceable, so that's how I'll fix the problem.

Kenmore Electric Counter Unit 43421


You are right it is the infinate heat control. This has no thermostat. It works by letting the burner cycle on for longer periods of time on the higher settings on high it is on constantly. The contacts are probably fused inside This part shouldn't be more than $25.
