Burner too hot

When cooking a burner is getting way to hot

    I have the same problem that just started on our Amana ceramic-top range. Have seen a diagram of the unit which shows each burner has a "limiter" attached– could this be the culprit?

Cook top indicator lights stay on long after it has cooled off. The largest cook circle sometimes doesn't reduce heat when the dial is changed


Cook top indicator light will stay on as long as the stove is hot I think. Also, the burners don't heat real steady? or evenly or true to their settings even, quite often. they also take a really long time to cool down as well as to adjust temperatures, so it may just be that it is taking an awfully long time for it to cool down in order to adjust.

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.

Hot Surface Light stays on


Our success has been to heat the elements to hot for about 5 minutes. Then let cool to reset temp sensor.

Can cause the problem by turning a burner on for a short period of time
