Whirlpool Range burners don't stay on

I have a freestanding electric range that I purchased 1.5 years ago from Best Buy and rarely used. This is a sudden problem that began yesterday. All the burners come on , but stay on only 1 second, then go off for a minute then come on agan for a second.Whirpool wil not give any technical support at all.
I can' afford to have a repair man out. I do not know how to get at the control panel. Can you help?
I will never recommend Whirlpool.

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR APPLIANCE before beginning any service procedure.
You may check your factory owner’s manual under the trouble shooting guide to see what is happening. Do you have a glass top or the top with metal burners?
If you have the kind with the metal burners the top in most cases are on a hinge and will lift up for service, you definitely have a short somewhere or a loose connection, check with Whirlpool’s customer service to see if they can send out a owner’s manual from the factory or check to see if it is still under a factory warranty and if it is there would be no charge. Or check with your local Whirlpool appliance dealer – sometimes they can be of some help. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local appliance dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Glass top range is pitted and scratched from an abrasive cleanser. Can it be replaced. It is a whirlpool freestanding range about 2 years old


Yes, your glass top assembly on your range can be replace. Here is one link where you can get the part, http://www.apdepot.com/Products/PartsLookup2/IPLLookupFrames.aspx?Brand=WHIRLPOOL&ModelNo=GR399LXHS1&ImgID=EdI2&ImgFile=WTKIKKLL

It is a relatively easy job to replace the main top since the burners are not attached to the top assembly itself. Remove 2 or 3 screws on the front of the top and you can easily lift the entire top off of the range and replace it with the new top.

My Whirlpool electric range made a loud electrical popping/cracking noise followed by smoke. Now the indicator light for the left front element is always on. Also when we try to turn on any burner the eft...


Sounds like you have a short in one of your burner switches that may have also taken out your main control. Does your oven work normally? Those error codes are related to 1] control board and 2] oven over temp, so the burner issue is unrelated except in that it may have surged the control.

you can view the switches by removing the rear panel(if this is a freestanding range) and from the description you will likely see the shorted component with some black marks around it. Please unplug the range first,as these wires are live even when all burners are off

Inglis electric freestanding range model #IRE3230- Oven no longer working


If the oven and the electric panel no longer work, this is an electronic problem. The burners and the oven light will not be effected, nor will the fuses. The electronics card will need to be replaced by an appliance technician.

Whirlpool electric range burner power light stays on but no heat


Hello givemeanidth.
Welcome to Fixya

You said, have a Whirlpool electric range (model rf363pxpt0) with standalone burners - the burner power indicator light stays lit whether the heat control knob is on or off, there is no heat coming from the burner on or off. You pulled the burner from the receptacle and one of the tabs broke off and stayed in the receptacle. You removed the tab and made sure no pieces remained in the receptacle then bought a replacement burner, no change. You put the replacement burner in the back burner of the same size and had heat within 10 seconds. You changed out the burner with the one that had been in the back of the range, no heat. As long as the breaker to the range is on the power light stays lit but no power to that one burner only.

What is the model number and the age of your range?

Waiting for your reply.
