It is probably a relay that has gone bad or a broken connection. You will have to open your oven and check the connections and relays and see if any are fried or broken.

You can also test them with an ohm meter to see if they have continuity

Let me know if you need any further help figuring this out and I would be happy to help

Hmm...sounds a bit like the heating from when it's on self cleaning mode...the unit will seem to overheat and then it's really tough to work with. Sounds like the control board is unhappy. Do you like to get into these sort of repairs?

It could be that one of the infinite switches has shorted out. The infinite switches are the ones you’re turning when you turn on the surface elements. You’ll need to open the control panel to access the switch wiring. It could also be a problem with bad wiring.

In any case, I recommend that you consult a professional to get this fixed.

you can find a local service center here:

or Call 1-800-253-1301.

Hope that helps!

    Please NEVER rate a solution without giving all background information first. Once a solution has been rated, and you come up with more info, the expert may not be willing to post a reply even if he has the solution.
    You cannot always expect an immediate answer. Sometimes to and fro dialogue may be necessary before we can get to the root of the problem..

Frigidaire gallery electric stove too hot


You will need to replace the burner switches for the burners that are not functioning correctly.
It also sounds like you have a problem with the OCU (oven control unit), this part is known to consumers as the clock.
Do a Google search for the model number and find a supplier for the parts. All three of these parts will easily cost over $300 all together.
Also the model number you listed in missing the last 2 letters. Locate the sticker which contains your model and serial number. This sticker will be on the oven frame when you open your bottom drawer.

Right front electric stove is stuck on high without shutting off, regardless if knob is switched to off. Needed to unplug the stove completely from electricity.


it depends on the model and manufacturer of your stove .. some have solid state relays that could be shorted (usually computer controlled stove) or a conventional relay (for cycling) that may have a stuck contact .. if its a conventiional stove with spiral cooking surface (not smoothtop) .. then you can make sure the burner is not hot and the stove is unplugged .. then you can simply lift and pull the burner out of its socket .. that will get you working temporarily on the other burners until ;you can fix the problem .. that burner could have an internal short to ground .. easy to check with an ohm meter or by substitution of one of the other burners .. if another burner does the same thing then suspect the relay or control switch ... if the substitute burner works properly then replace the defective one ..

GE True Temp flat top stove - heating with switch off


This happened recently to my stove... heard a funny sound and then the burner I was not using suddenly started heating up with the switch still in of position. It appears that the problem is the burner switch. I've bought a new one...however I didn't note the order of the wires before removing the old one... and now can't get the new one hooked up right! Part is only around $25.00.. just be sure to mark where the wires go before unplugging them.

Whirlpool electric range burner exploded ''on'' light on always


Hi There,
While the stove is unplugged remove the bad burner from the stove and set the bad burner's control knob to the "OFF" position. Now plug the stove back in. If there is a problem it should trigger the breaker and shut off the stove. If you are not comfortable doing this you might want to ask someone.
The explosion was due to a shorted burner element and once it is removed there shouldn't be any more problems. I hope this was helpful and I hope you get your stove going again.
