Question about Kitchen Ranges

My Meile electric cooktop, model 433 doesn't seem to heat up high enough to get a Wok cooking properly for a stir fry. I know about getting instant heat with the 9. feature but is there any way to get higher heat from this cooktop?

THE COOKTOP WONT HEAT UP. BUT THE LIGHT ON THE CONTROL KNOB LIGHTS.


My first guess would be to check for proper connection at the wires from the stove body to that specific heating element.
Perhaps, lift-off or open the cook-top cover, and check the hook-up to the heating element itself.
How old is your stove, and is it fitted with the common "coil type" elements? Unless it's a very late, high-tech model, capable of checking its own wiring, the indicator light will illuminate regardless of an open circuit to the heating element because older models can't "see" or "know" whether something has come loose, so the indicator light will come on, and just sit there, cold and clueless.
Bon Apetit!!

How do I properly operate the Turbo Boil on my new Kenmore range?


Turboboil is a feature offered on a number of Kenmore electric ranges and cooktops. Without you model number it's hard to get into specifics - but turboboil is a special, high wattage heating element that delivers up to 3KW of energy to a specific heater on the cooktop. If I understand correctly, you would only use this setting when you wish to bring water to a boil in the shortest period of time possible - then change to a normal burner heat setting to maintain the temperature of the water in the pot.

Remember, an electric heat element is turned "full on" and "full off" as needed to maintain temperature (unlike a dimmer knob controls a light bulb). The turbo boil turns on a "double heater" to rapidly heat the water - after water reaches 212 degrees, it can not be heated any further (it turns into steam) so you should switch to a normal burner mode from that point forward.

Can a larger capacity (heating) unit be installed in my kitchen range, for higher heat


You cannot exceed the exact replacement parts for fear of wiring meltdown. If you must get a hotter stove for say a Wok, you must buy a model for a wok. They are out there.

Can I cook on a cracked cooktop


The glass cook tops are made of tempered glass. Even small crack can eventually lead to shattering if the glass if heated in a condition where it has a weakness. In addition, depending on the severity of the crack, any liquids that boil over while cooking can end up directly on the heating elements. This could lead to catastrophic failure of the elements and/or an electrical shock hazard. It is strongly recommended that the cooktop is replaced as soon as possible.

If you need guidance on how to replace a cooktop, the following link explains:

Repacement parts can generally be purchased on line at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop and compare. The first three sites include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifuing any parts you may need.

I found the following part number(s) : WB62T10475, WB62T10476, WB62T10477

The correct part number and price will depend on your COMPLETE MODEL NUMBER and COLOR of your range.

If you have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Oven heats, but not enough. Takes a really long


Change the heat element in the oven. You will find it inside the oven towards the back under the pan. The part should cost about $125.00 maybe less. I just did it on my oven.
