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.

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.

The elements on the stove top will go on full or nothing at all. Is there an easy fix for this ?


the elements are supposed to do this, being on or off. however, if they do not turn on and off to maintain selected temperature, means the thermostat in the oven needs to be replaced. on newer fancy ovens it may be the electronic control panel

Top element wont heat wen oven is on bake


The top element normally operates only when you turn the temperature control all the up to the broil setting as it is the broiling element. If it doesn't work at the broil setting, suspect a bad brioler element or a faulty temperature control.
