    No this is an old stove that has just started doing this, they are electric elements. About a month ago two of the elements only went on high but the other two were okay now all of a sudden they all go on high only.

I am guessing this is a new cooktop for you. The burners don't adjust like gas burners. they run full power, and turn on and off to regulate the heat. If you are noticing that the burners light up like they are on high, this is normal. They should light up and dim to regulate heat.
If this isn't the case and they just go straight to high and don't dim, the temperature switch in the back of the stove is bad. Hope this helps...

    Each burner is seperately controlled by an infinite heat control swith, or burner switch. This is the part the knob actually connects to. If they short out, you may be left with only low, only medium, only high, or it just won't work anymore. I tried to do a search to get a price for you, but couldn't find anything. Hope this helps...

Cooking element on stove top goes on full heat,even when dial is set on low.


Electric, I presume. Disconnect power to stove, open backsplash, remove knob, replace control unit.(usually universal type). Available appliance repair shop. Careful with 220volt power!!!!

Stove top elements on high only


Yarsu Spiros

I like you purchased one of these thinking you can trust the name simpson(pope) but after putting on a fry pan with sum saucages in and having a major fire in my kitchen, I through the heap of junk out and bought a *** oven (current technologie) howerver to answer your question you have pulled the elements and trays out to kleen them (that seems normal) but you need to make sure the element terminals are clean and so are the spring clip things they fit into, use a peice of emery cloth (not wet & dry) this should fix it

alternativly not buy this junk again and get a proper stove

My right front burner will not turn off on my electric stove top.


Its probably the switch for that element, the contacts are fused. If this is a smooth top ceramic stove then the control relay board relay for that element is stuck.

The swich for the burner is bad and needs to be replaced. The glass will be fine, but unless your just boiling water you wont be abe to use it until you replace the switch.
