SOURCE: Gemini Range Dual Burner
Unfortunately, you cannot repair one element of a dual burner. It all comes as one unit. When one portion of a dual or triple element goes bad, you must replace the whole element. I believe the part number is 1032746 and runs about $70. You will have to lift the glass top to access the burner elements. If you decide to pursue this on your own follow these steps: 1. Unplug range and/or turn off main breaker. 2. Open oven door to access screws under front edge of cooktop. Remove two screws and the top should tilt up. 3. The top will not stay up on it's own, so you will need some assistance holding it up. Some ranges have a couple of disconnect plugs that you can unplug, so you remove the entire top and lay it somewhere to work on. If this is the case with yours (as I suspect it is), lay some soft towels down on the kitchen table or counter top and lay the cooktop upside down. This will make it much easier to work on. 4. Remove affected element by disconnecting the wires first. You may want to write down how they came off, so you can be sure to reconnect them in the right order. 5. Remove mounting brackets holding element in place. Pay particular attention to the numbering scheme on the bottom of the element and where the brackets are mounted. The new element usually doesn't come with new brackets which means you have to take the brackets off the old element and put them on the new element. Make sure you install them in the same numbered holes as they were located before. 6. Reconnect wires and reinstall cooktop, making sure you reconnect the disconnect plugs if equipped. Now, be careful when working on the cooktop while it is upside down. Make sure you don't apply too much pressure on the glass or you could crack it. Also, use extreme care NOT to touch the element surface as the oils from you hands can cause hot spots and effectively ruin it. The bake light material in which the element is mounted is also very fragile. DO NOT put to much pressure on it or it may crack and break. Once you get the cooktop reinstalled and power reapplied, op test it to make sure BOTH elements are working. It is normal to see a little bit of sparking at first with new elements and/or an odor. Test the entire range of the element and make sure it regulates like it should. I hope this helps you.

I WOULD LOOK AT THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY AS THE DEFECT. THERE IS USUALLY A SWITCH THAT TELLS THE CONTROL IF THE DOOR IS LOCKED OR NOT. IF THE SWITCH HAS SHORTED CLOSED, THE CONTROL THINKS THE DOOR IS LOCKED AND WON'T DO ANYTHING BUT CLEAN.
MOST OF THE ASSEMBLIES ARE UNDER THE RANGE TOP.
YOU MAY HAVE TO REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE TOP AT EACH OF THE FRONT CORNERS. OPEN THE OVEN DOOR TO GAIN ACCESS.
IT WILL BE LOCATED IN THE CENTER. THE DOOR HOOK THAT STICKS OUT TO ENGAGE THE DOOR IS PART OF THE DOOR LOCK ASSEMBLY.

That is the way it works. If you have an convection oven then they both work in bake mode but they alternate between the two.

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.
