All burners turn will turn off and stop heating, but the "on light" will not go off.

    Sorry I left out that it is a radiant glass-top cooktop which creates an access problem. This is my first of this type so I have zero experience with them and don't know where to begin.



    Thanks!

I am asuming you mean a standard cook top stove.
you should probebly unplug the range because it looks like a short circuit.
!) a shorted or failing burner/control will light to ground
2) every burrner has a fuse, unscreww each burnner fuse till light goes out. that is the problem piece.
3) change heating elements with the element of the same size on the other side of the stove.
4)put fuse back in. if light off - bad elemet - if light on - bad control
bad control - I'm not sure you want to tackle that. but call me back :)

SOURCE: LIGHT STAYS ON FOR HOURS BUT THE TOP HAS COOLED

if its going out, its probably ok
its not a light indicating the burner is on, rather that the glass is abcove 100 degrees and still not safe to put something on
2 hours is a bit long but it depends on how fst the surface can cool of
you can test this by trying to cool it off faster with a fan ans see what happens

The igniter module is working fine. One of the switches (which are on each valve shaft) is stuck or shorted out. Pull a wire off each one at a time to determine which one is bad. Careful! 120 volts to each wire. Also, this can happen after you spill water into the valve area, if that sounds right, let it dry out.

Ingiter will either fail to start burner or won't quit clicking on the 1% of the times it does start up the burner


Hi look for adjustments to the lighter and also there should be a sensor tat sees the fire , this sesor allows the main gas to turn on, but only if it feels the heat , kind of like a thermocouple , if you think about about any type problem like this: what is it not doing ? then think what could cause this >/? if you go about any repair this way there is nothing you can't fix unless you need a part !

My Kenmore cooktop will not heat properly, all 4 burners. They turn on and heat a little bit, but the burner on lights do not light up and the burners do not heat to full temperature. I closed my oven...


hi my name is mark, a service tech needs to check the voltage to the cook top. you will probably find improper voltage. check data plate for proper voltage should be 208v or 230v depending onwhere you live.

GE profile performance electric cook top is not producing enough heat in the front burners.


Confirm there is 240 VAC powering the unit (make sure a breaker has not tripped or a fuse blown.).

Did the burners ever produce enough heat?

If yes, then we can look deeper. If no, then the burners may not be adequate for your cooking style. Burners are like light bulbs. A 60 watt bulb will put out more light than a 40 watt bulb. A 100 watt bulb will put out more light than a 60.
Typically, a small burner will provide less cooking heat than a large burner.

Whirlpool electric Cooktop's one burner not heating


Hi,

Initially, it could either be:
  • open heating element (most likely);
  • open temperature limiter (least likely);
  • faulty/loose connection/wiring (a possibility).
Please confirm that it is a Whirlpool RCC3024 Electric Cooktop.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Burners ignite simultaneously (clicking)


When you set a burner to light, all burners spark. This is normal. Move knob back off the spark position as soon as burner lights. All sparking will stop.
