Question about Amana AKT3040 Electric Cooktop

Open Question

The control for the dual cooktop turns on the inner and outer surface at the same time no matter which way you turn the knob. I was told that the dual control (part number 0309550) is not longer available. Can a single control for the single cooktop be used to just control the inner burner of the dual?

SOURCE: burner is on high all the time

Is this an older unit - 5 years or more in use? Sounds like the burner element is shot. Check the Amana web site for a replacement.

SOURCE: Electric cooktop burner is always on hi when it's on

I just wanted the name of the part and possible sources. Not worth paying $14 for.
I found it else where.

You should give your prices up front, before users spend any time trying to use your site.

How do i turn the outer ring on for a dacor stove top


Pushing the button for the element will turn on the inner element at level 5. Before adjusting the level (so while the level indicator is still blinking) press the little circle on the right side of the controls for that element. The circle should light up. Now press the UP control for that element, and the level indicator should stop blinking. Now the outer and inner elements are both heating up. Adjust temp level to desired setting.

You may already be aware of this but ... If our ilve ceran cooktop is the same as yours turn the knob past the 12 setting till you feel pressure and it springs back. This is the switch to fire up the marked outer elements.

My 5-burner 36" gaggenau has stopped working. I


Hello.
What the problem is a part in the cooktop that opens to let gas flow to the knobs as soon as they are turned on is bad and no gas coming to surface unit burners. This a safety feature that the German goverment(where Gaggenau is made) requires that part to prevent a gas leak when cooktop is off.

After cleaning the cooktop surface the "clicking"


I just solved the continuous sparking in my gas burner. I removed the control knobs and the rubber below those knobs. Gave the rubber and the area below it a good clean using kitchen and bath cleaning wipes that I bought from Coles. The key is to remove the water and grease from the rubber and the area below it. Good luck!

The elements DO BURN OUT. Replace it.

Often you can see evidence of a hot spot on the element where the final failure occured, but not always.

I have a neff T1.D20 dual circuit hotplate but although the inner lights up and gets hot the outer part doesnt. Is the outer part supposed to?


I have a T172 model which also has a dual circuit hotplate.

In the control area you should find a dual circuit control pad - this has two concentric circles on it. With the hob switched on, pressing this button will chnage the mode of the dual circuit hot plate bewteen:
1. Just the inner part
2. Both the inner and outer together.

When the hob is switched off using the Standby control pad, it remembers which mode was selected and will therefore work the same next time it is switched on. However, it is worth noteing that when the mains power to the hob is interuppted, either by an isolator switch/breaker, or a power cut, the hob defaults back to just the inner ring mode.

My Viking VECU105 electric cooktop has one burner which will not regulate the temperature. It can be turned on and off with the control knob, but after that, there is no temperature control. Any ideas on...


It will need either a dual infinite or infinite switch, If the burner has an inner an outer element then it requires the dual.

Firstly turn power off at breaker.

The unit needs to be removed from the cut out and the cover removed from below the swtichs. the knob taken off and the secureing screws removed, then take note of the layout of the wiring and the poistion of the switch, then swap the wires, reassemble test and then re-install
