Whirlpool electric stove

I have a whirlpool electric ceramic top stove. The large element seems to cut in and out it takes forever to boil a pot of water. We have bought new cookware made specifically for ceramic top stoves but the large burner gives us problems. I can boil water on the smaller burners faster than using the large. The only other problem is that the hot surface indicator stays on all the time for this burner can this be related to the problem. What can I replace ? Is there a sensor or maybe the thermostat? The model is RF386PXGQ1 super capacity 465

The sensor is built on to the top of the surface element if it was me id replace both the element and switch so you only have to go in once but its probably the element

Since you are having problems with multiple elements the problem is probably the circuit board that controls them. This can be ordered and replaced. Be sure to unplug the stove before getting into the circuit board though.

Our Whirlpool speedheat 2600 burners shut down whenever we try to boil water when canning or even making pasta, what do we do?


If the pot is too large or to small for the burner or is concave or convex, the burner will short cycle. Try to match the burner to the pot and be sure the pot is nice and flat on the bottom.

Whirlpool ceramic cooktop


Scott,
On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace

Whirlpool Gold Range Error code EO F2


On this website: http://www.repairclinic.com/0078.asp#Whirlpool , it shows all of the codes for the Whirlpool errors. Based on the remarks, if it shows a "4 digit failure code" it is "Shorted keypad"
"Replace Electronic Range Control/Clock (ERC)"

But verify this as I am not an appliance repair specialist. I am a computer nerd who just knows how to find information. I am actually trying to figure out an answer to my own problem with my Whirlpool Gold Accubake.
