Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

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 on to low or just #2 (meaning should be low heat),either way to the single or dual , it just heats up realy high(hot), like it 's turned to 8/max for high heat. Normally the element will come on and off when set at any setting(the setting on the dial from low to max); now, it won't go on and off, the element stays on and turns on really hot even set at low. What can be wrong with it??? Would the glass top be able to withstand the high temp. of the element if it does not go on and off periodically????

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.

On the stove each eye has to settings you can either turn on single high medium or low or dual high medium or low I don't own the front I don't understand what that means what does that mean

It has two sets of elements, a single one in the middle if you a cooking a small item, or dual elements that cover a larger area for cooking large items. This works for the top hobs, and also for grills/broilers in many stoves. If save electricity, and also having heat outside the base of a small pan. I see yours says 'Accusimmer', so it is a Whirlpool and it is the top hob.

If you Google

make model manual

You will probably find it online. Here is some information

Either the knob has gone out or the burner element. I would test the knob first to see if there is current when turned to the large zone. If the knob is working, next would be to test the burner to see if the outer ring has burned out. I would guess more likely the control has gone out. Burners have less failure (typically).

My right front burner will not turn off on my electric stove top.

Its probably the switch for that element, the contacts are fused. If this is a smooth top ceramic stove then the control relay board relay for that element is stuck.

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working

similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
