Question about Whirlpool RF368 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Burner gets too hot

Once you turn the switch to 5 the burner stays on. If you turn down to 4 to 1 the burner stays on as well. Only after the burner is in the off position and cooled down will it be able to go to 1-4 again.

    The burner should stay around a certain temp. when you set the dial. 1,2,3,4,ect.. with me the burner keeps warming up getting hotter and hotter. it will not level off until you turn the burner off . even if you turn the dial to a lower number.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Kenmore: 790.99012102, right front burner will not turn off.

Please confirm your model number. If 79099012102 is the correct model number, there is a POWER RELAY BOARD located on the back of the unit behind the bottom metal panel. 316239403 is the part number if your model number matches the one listed in my response. If it is different, than my part number will not be correct.

Hot surface indicator light stays on despite the burners being off overnight


There is a switch in the burner assembly that senses the burner is hot. It could be the sensor switch is bad. It also could be the surface switch itself that has a welded contact that is causing the hot surface light to stay on. i would look at the thermal switch on the burner itself first.

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-

Burners do not turn down to selected temp and food burns


I wish I had good things to say about GE but I don't. Probably the burner control is no good. Contact GE and get support due to the fact somebody can get hurt.

Burner will not get hot enough


When the burner arced out it probably also ruined the switch. Most switches on a standard electric range have 5 wires. 2 wires to the burner. 2 hot wires from power and a smaller wire which connects to the indicator light marked P. It is easy to test the switch Unplug the stove. Turn the suspect switch on wide open. Check for continuity between the 2 terminals going out to the burner marked H1 and H2
If you cannot get a reading then the switch has failed. Note: when replacing the switch usually on most stove the replacement will not be or look like the original HOWEVER it will still have L1 and L2 H1 and H2 and P but the terminals are not always in the same order. If you fail to correctly connect the new switch you will fry 2 switches when both get turned on. Ouch!

Burner will not turn off


I would first check the infinite control switch (#WB24T10029) the part the knob slips onto. The next thing I'd check is the erc (#WB27T10231) control board. Hope that is helpful!
