I have an Amana AKH30 stove top and two of the burners have no heat control. When you want to turn down they will not respond .. The back burners still work and have heat control.

I had the same problem. Went to an appliance store that carries Jenn Air. Replaced both plug in units. Now they work perfectly and it cost less than $350 total! Good Luck!

I just wanted the name of the part and possible sources. Not worth paying $14 for.
I found it else where.

Amana counter top gas stove when plugged in start making clicking noise and you can smell gas .


on most, your push down and turn to hi to open gas valve and turn on piezio to light burner. it sounds like you have a knob already turned on . the control under the knob may need replacing. kinda an easy replacement if you get new part. check out repairclinic.com for video(maybe) but for parts for sure. be careful. gas is explosive.

Whrlpool Electric Stove Top Burners


this is a ceramic top i am guessing.
this is normal, it isthe way it is designed.
it does this so that it does not cause a heat fracture to the glass.. it will continue to turn on and off.. but if you put a pot of cold water on it you will find that this will happen alot less frequently.

Electric stove top


Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040


Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.

On Light Won't go off on cooktop


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 :)

Burners are not fully heating out to the end


Either the elements are going out or the controlls for the burners are getting croded contacts. Best bet would be to replace both and go for another 7 years :-)
