You will need to remove the rear cover of the dryer,then the flat tube on the right slightly at an angle there will be 2 thermostats on the left side of this tube,unplug the wires off of each of them and get replacements for both components,one is a cycling switch and the other is a high-limit thermostat,replace both due to the excess heat has probably ruined both components

ONE DOUBLE BURNER ONLY WORKS ON HIGH NO MATTER WHERE I SET IT


Hello Miguel;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

There are two electrical components that will cause this problem. The most probable cause is the burner element. Each of your burner elements have a independent temperature sensor. The sensor controls the burner element temperature.
25373509-gdidvipt5nahjm0x11drq30d-3-0.jpg
Substitution Part Number: 4453909 Cost: $85.00

This surface element (part number 4453909) is for electric ranges, including Whirlpool electric range model GJC3034RB00.
Unplug the range or shut off the house circuit breakers to disconnect electrical power to the range before replacing the surface element. Wear gloves to protect your hands when replacing surface element on your electric range.
This is a manufacturer substitution. Part may differ in appearance but is a functional equivalent to priorparts including 9759351.

OR:

PART NUMBER: 8523698 Cost: $71.00

The other less likely electrical component is Surface Element Control Switch. Each burner has a independent control switch.

25373509-gdidvipt5nahjm0x11drq30d-3-8.jpg
Cost: $46.00

To check the switch: Remove the switch 2 contacts on the left. With a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). Put one meter lead on one switch contact and the other meter lead on the other contact. If the switch is good you meter will read "0" Ohms.

Whirlpool model ed2vhgxmt00 quit cooling


Helo sir

  • Check the temperature setting
  • Make certain there is a three inch space outside of the refrigerator between the walls and the back and sides and at least a one inch gap above, to allow for air flow
  • Clean the condensor coils
  • Unplug the refrigerator, wait two hours and plug it in. If you hear it running, a problem is causing the compressor to overheat
  • Test the temperature control
  • Test the evaporator fan
  • Test the defrost timer
  • Test the compressor relay
  • Test the overload protector
  • Test the compressor motor

    How to replace temperature sensor in Whirlpool water heater


    Whrilpool will send information.
    Copy following link for resources, including images showing temperature sensor (thermister):
    http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html
    http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Whirlpool-energy-smart-part.jpg

    Remove cover on outside of tank.
    The foam insulation is very stout, and must be cut back to access sensor located above each element.
    Insulation must be put back when finished.
    After insulation is cut back, it appears you can remove the sensor... I am assuming the wiring can be unplugged, or spliced. It is not possible to replace wires that run between sensor and top of tank because the foam insulation is too tight and wiring is not inside a conduit.

    How to change the door switch


    Hello.

    Some Washer ranges are equipped with electronic displays that indicate the time of day and the oven's temperature when it's in use. The display also alerts users to error codes including PF, or power failure, and various letter and number combinations that correspond to issues ranging from electronic control malfunctions to problems with the oven door latch.
    Related Searches:

    F2 Faults

    Washer F2 faults relate to temperature problems in the oven. In the case of the error E2-F3, F2 is the general fault code and E2 is the specific error code. An E0-F2 error indicates that the oven's temperature sensor is open; E1-F2, that the temperature sensor is shorted; E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 575 degrees Fahrenheit in "Cook" mode; and E2-F3, that the oven temperature has exceeded the maximum rated 950 degrees Fahrenheit in "Clean" mode.

    Clear Error Code

    If your oven display shows a letter/number combination, washer advises clearing the display. Press "UPPER OFF" or "LOWER OFF" on double oven models. On single oven models, press "OFF/CANCEL" to clear the display. If the code reappears, the manufacturer recommends contacting a professional service technician or contacting the Washer producer

    Professional Service

    The Tech Sheet included with Whirlpool ovens is meant for use by professional technicians servicing the unit. To address an E2 F3 error, a technician can check the oven's temperature sensor connection, measure the sensor's resistance and, if necessary, replace the sensor.

    Thanks.

    Engine over heating


    Check /replace the cooling fan activation (temperature sensor) switch on the engine.
    (Note .. this is a separate temp sensor to that which drives the temperature gauge).
