Smooth Top doesn't cool down ????

My front right burner seems to be constantly on (low heat) and doesn't shut off unless I unplug the unit. Once I plug it back in I get a "hot surface" indicator light, even though the "elment on" light is off.

    the front right burner is the only one that is "hot to touch." I only have one indicator and it is "on" whenever the stovetop is plugged in. The weird part is that the "elment on" light is off, but the burner is still hot... I appreciate your response and I will check the warranty and switch.

    let me clarify my last statement...

    2 total indicator lights on Stove Top...

    1. "Hot Surface" - turns on and stay's on whenever unit is plugged in b/c front right burner is alway's hot...

    2. "Element ON" light is off, however unit is still hot.

Does the lindcator light remain on nall burners cold to touch?, or is the element actuall on low?? if just the hot surface indicatoris on and elelmnts are cold to touch you hae a bad element. if the elemnt wont shout off the problem is in the switch. i would ck with manufacture depending on age you may have a part warr for 5 yrs on the elemnt itself

Left front range top burner temerture control issues


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with the left front burner on your Frigidaire range, model# FEF355. I see that the burner heats up to a glowing red hot temperature, no matter what you set the dial to. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes.

When power is restored, the first thing you will need to do is set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock" button, then within 5 seconds press and hold the up or down arrows until the correct time of day appears.

Once you have set the time, turn on the left front burner, on the lowest setting. If the burner is still glowing red hot, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your range and determine what is causing the burner to glow red hot on all settings. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Cooktop light doesn't shut off


The temperature sensor located on the that element is failing. the sensor red light reminds you that the burner area is still hot. The light should go out once the glass top has cooled,but the failing sensor won't allow it. A slight rap with your hand on glass top over that burner once cool will put the light out. It more than likely continue until the unit is replaced.

Heating element stays on when turned off


The thermostat (that is the dial that you turn to energize the heating elements) is the only thing that connects power to and disconnects power from the heating element. It is bad.

You can unplug the unit and remove the thermostat. Take it to a parts supplier and get a new one and install it. Your problem will go away.

Is it all right to use cast-aluminum griddle which covers two burners on a smooth top electric stove/


I would avoid it unless the manufacturer says its okay.  I'd get in touch with them.
You did not say what kind of heating system the unit has.  Induction units will not work right with multi-burner systems and other systems such as radiant burners will cause heating that is not in the right places.

I have a Inglis smooth top stove, model IME 8230. One of the front has a dial for single/dual --for quick heat up. It was working fine, til couple of days ago, it suddenly went haywire. When I turned it...


The swich for the burner is bad and needs to be replaced. The glass will be fine, but unless your just boiling water you wont be abe to use it until you replace the switch.

Oven or smooth top will not turn on. breakers are good and it is plugged in.


Unplug the range. Wait a few minutes, then plug the unit back in.  Reset the clock per your user manual. A pdf copy of your manual may be available on line at the Magic Chef site or the Maytag site, since Maytag has or had a similar model.

Frigidaire Stove elements not working


First thing I would check is see if you are getting 220 volts to the stove.  Must be a constant 220.  Let me know what you find.

Kenmore smooth top - cooking problems


Smooth tops take a little geting used to than a coil top range....Make sure you have good flat cookware. NO GLASS COOKWARE. (ie vision ware.) Once the burner is set to high, it has to heat the glass, then the pot, so it does take about 2 min loger to boil, If you want to simmer, then i suggest bringing the item to a rapid boil, and then cutting back the heat to below the 1 on the range. and adjusting from there. All smooth top glass ranges do work in this manner. Most people can adjust to the switch, but not everyone can. there really is no problem with your range. BTW i work at sears, and i am surprised that no one helped you.
