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

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.

My heater will kick on right away but after 3-5mins it stops producing heat then a few mins later it will start heating again. Why?


The furnace could be shutting off on High Limit ...means your furnace is running too hot...check your filter and make sure return air vents are clean and clear....also it can be the Heat anticipator in your thermostat...which controls how many times your furnace cycles...basically your furnace should come on and off 5-6 times/hr ....need more info on your type of furnace and type of thermostat

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.

DOES YOUR DRYER HAVE THE LINT SCREEN ON THE TOP? IF SO, REMOVE THAT AND TAKE TWO SCREWS OF(CARE NOT TO DROP IT INTO THE VENT). PULL THE TOP PANEL TOWARD YOU LITTLE BIT AND LIFT UP, THERE WILL BE TWO 5/16 SCREWS INSIDE FRONT PANEL, REMOVE AND UNPLUG THE LID SWITCH CONNECTOR, FRONT PANEL WILL COME OUT. THE GAS VALVES AND COILS ASSEMBLY WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT. UNPLUG AND TAKE THE SCREWS OFF THE BRACKET AND REPLACE COILS. CHECK FOR CONTINUITY ON COILS, IT SHOULD READ 1.3 TO 1.9 OHMS. THE ONE WITH THREE TERMINAL, CHECK OHM FROM MIDDLE TERMINAL TO OUTSIDE TERMINALS.

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.

Fan comes on butno heat


Sounds like you have a hot surface ignitor that has gone out. Go down to the unit remove top cover to inspect the operation of unit. First stage is draft fan it should come on and clear out the flue about 2 min. later the hot surface ignitor starts to glow it sits right in front of the burners if no glow the ignitor needs to be replaced. let me know how it turns out.

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.

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.
