How do I replace the receptacle for the heating elements on the stove top.


Typically the light is a function of the selector so as long the position of the knob is to the on position it will be on. in order for the burners to work you'll have to replace the connectors, so full current can go through them. also the self cleaning feature refers to the oven meaning you can lock it, turn it to clean and it will get so hot that the build up on the inside will get flaky and then you can clean it once it cools off. I've never seen one that work that well, but it has nothing to do with the glass there is cleaners that you can "rub" kind of like waxing a car and if you have build up on the glass or burned food you can scrape it with a razor laying flat on the glass and scrape the cleaner around will eventually it will peel off.

One of my burners is not working? Glass top stove. Model PFEF385SJFS4


The burner heating element is likely burned out and needs replacing. If you want to do this yourself, let me know.

One of the burners on my kitchenaid cooktop will not heat up. What do you think the problem is? Is this something that can be easily repaired?


If it is not a glass top stove, with the power OFF, and cold, pull out a working element of the same diameter and install it where the non-working element was. Try it now. If it works, replace the heating element. If it does not, check for voltage at the element connector. CAREFULLY. Worst case is that the switch requires replacing.

I have kitchen aid in the counter range, the bottom heat element is bad. The element has burnt and has a 3" piece that has separated. At the same time the oven stopped working the burners stopped working...


The oven element will not affect the top burners, Unless it tripped the breaker at the panel when the element burned it two. Is there power to the stove? The top burners have their own power and control separate.

Stove top burners and lower baking element not heating up


If all the elements are dead, check for blown fuses/tripped circuit breakers. There may be some in the range unit itself in addition to your electrical service panel. If one element is completely dead on all heat settings, the control is probably bad or there is a broken wire. If it is stuck on high for all control settings or is erratic, the control is bad - replacements are readily available and easily installed.
On ranges with push button heat selection, a pair of heating elements are switched in various combinations across 120 and/or 240. If some heat settings do not work, the most likely cause is that one of the heatings elements is burnt out although a bad switch is also possible. Kill power to the range and test the heating elements for continuity with resistance meter or multimeter.

For the lower baking element:
Again, check for blown fuses in the oven or tripped circuit breakers. The remove any wiring to the bottom element and test for resistance. If you get no reading (or a very high resistance) then your element is dead.

Broke glass on electric genn-air


Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.

Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.

As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.

I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.

If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.
