Question about Westinghouse Bethany Antique Brass- Indoor Ceiling Fans Fans
The elements on the top of my stove will now only go full on I have no temperature ajustment, it started with one doing it now I have three, it's flat out or nothing, It is a Westinghouse Kimberley electric about 4 years old. Thanks Chez
The temperature control thermostat mechanism in these switches are frail, low quality and repeatedly fail. You will know they have failed (again and again) when you turn the stove ring on and you will only have full temp with no variance.
They must be replaced.
Most places sell the replacements at insane markups, sometimes as much as $50 each! They can be had for almost a quarter of that price. There is no difference between the $50 and $15 controls regardless of what the rip off merchants will try to tell you.
Ideally these controls should be replaced free of charge by the stove manufacturer as they have used a very inferior component in their product during the manufacturing process.
They have been used by several common manufacturers for many years but still have made no effort at all to correct this very dangerous condition.
The danger factor of this fault is ignored but should receive the utmost attention by the autorities asap.

What is a semistate ?

My stove is the same and it is annoying. Surely I don't have to buy a new stove?

You have simistate problems and they are about 45-55 dollors and you should not do it your self. if you have more than one you should think of overall price.
