I have a Hotpoint electric range and recently the large burner element seems to be operating intermittently. How can i determine if it is the element, tertminal or control, without replacing each part one at a time?

Hotpoint Electric Range Model RB734
I had to put in a dummy product in order to make this questionnaire to work.

Take out the element and look at the connecting ends see if there are char or burn marks where they make the connection. One thing you might try doing is cleaning the connections, if that does'nt work you will probably need to replace the element.

Hope this helps ya

Right front burner only works on "small element". Large element will not come on. Do i need a new burner?

Hi Will Lawler - If the small element turns on but the large element does not, then more than likely, the range has a faulty burner or switch. If I was in your position, I would personally contact a professional for an accurate diagnosis and to assist with the repairs.

I just replaced the right rear burner receptacle on my Frigidaire Range...mod. # FEF352AWC and now the right rear element is intermittent except when the front right burner is on

Hi - it sounds like that there is a loose wire somewhere, have another look - perhaps in the process a connection may have come loose or broke off without you noticing.

I would lean towards a bad neutral or a common loop between the elements..

Hotpoint electric range - I was boiling water and the pan stuck to the coil it then sparked and coil broke in half. The circiut breaker did not trip. Can this be fixed?

Yes. The elements are individually replaceable. Depending on the element, the small one P/N is WB30X342,

the large element P/N is WB30X348.

Unplug the cook-top or turn the breakers off. Pull the burner out horizontally and upward to expose the screw connectors. Unfasten the wires, remove the element, place new element in place, conect the wires, and reinstall.

Small burner of dual surface(right front) stopped working.

Does yours have the (small large burner switch)? If so, try switching it back and forth. It could be defective or your small burner element is bad.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on

It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.
