Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you have a defective burner control valve.

THIS IS A GAS PRODUCT, INCORRECT REPAIR CAN CAUSE A EXPLOSION, AND DEATH CAN OCCUR. IF YOU DO HAVE THE PROPER TOOLS SUCH AS MANOMETER AND LEAK DETECTORS, I SUGGEST YOU CONTACT A SERVICE COMPANY

I have a Beaumark Electric range about 8 years old, The right front burner comes on high as soon as it is turned on, even if I turn it to low it remains on very, very high and burns everything. Why


The burner is not controlled and so it is possible that there is no control on the heating coils.The thermostat settings must be checked as this can be an area where the coils are not controlled for the heat set but goes to the highest level.You will need to remove the unit to check the control action of the controller, check the thermostat and sensor.

Dual top burner will only heat up on high.It is only the large ring burner GE JBP79


Does it go straight to full heat even though it is on the low setting. If this is the case the hotplate controller is faulty and requires replacement.

Are you talking about the cook-top part of this unit or the interior of the oven? If it's the top part, your infinite switch is out. If it's the interior, it's one of the elememts.

We look forward to working with you and getting your oven fixed BEFORE Thanksgiving. 972-859-0929
