    After lifting up the glass top and replacing the element here are my comments:

    if you have a problem of smaller element of the dual element not working then it ought to be your element that needs replacement.. Unfortunately you can not just replace the smaller or the larger that has gone bad but have to replace the entire combo-element... if your hotsurface indiactor light and the element-on indicator light are working and are able to turn the heat from high to low on the working element (either small or large) then definitely the problem is NOT WITH THE INFINITE SWITCH. If it is your larger element that is not working then it could be either your rocker-switch or the element that could have gone wrong... To isolate the problem directly join the two ends that are connected to the rocker-swich and see if your larger element works. If it does not work then it has got be a bad large element....

    If your problem is with any of the other non-dual element not working.. to isolate the issue swap the infinite swith with any of the other working ones (because they are identical) before buying either the element or the inf. switch..

    one more thing... be carefule with the element in case you are replacing that.. the non conductive heat resistant material that is enveloping the coil is so soft that a little extra pressure crumbles that... --- Good luck

    My small burner doesn't work but the big one that is together does work. I don't see how the cook top comes off to get to the burner to repair or replace the element. Is there a trick to taking off the top? Its a GE JBP69...

These burners are not that difficult to get to, but you will have to get access to that burner or element to do testing. Screws hold the top down located just under the top front edge. Open oven door to see screws. Remove screws to lift up top. It will pivot on the back edge. You will see the elements. If you do not feel safe doing this get professional help.

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.

Replacing a radiant element on a maytag glass top range I'm having strange problems with the two right elements of my MER5770 The front larger dual element will only operate at high heat. When turning on...


If the burner is scorched or pitted, go ahead and replace it. New burners can cost anywhere from $10 to $40. Otherwise, check the burner's electrical connections to make sure there is solid contact. Jiggle the burner in its socket. If it is loose, then remove the burner—most just pull out of the electrical socket, although some are mounted with a screw. (Always unplug the range before removing a burner.) Slightly spread the two terminals apart for a tighter connection. If it still doesn't work, then replace the faulty burner with a functioning burner of the same size. If that burner works, then replace the bad burner with a new one. If it doesn't, then inspect the electrical socket for damage. If it's charred, replace the socket. To do so, remove the screws that secure the socket to the range and then unscrew the range wires. Attach the wire connections of the new socket to the range wires and reassemble the burner.

Electric burner


Unplug the Range from the wall completely. Lift up the top to see under the burners and make sure they are contacting the connections for current. If they seem to be tight, plug it back in and try it. If that doesn't work, then you have an "Infinite Switch" malfunction. www.marcone.com is an excellent source for finding a do it yourself part to fix this. Please do not attempt to replace this switch with the range plugged in.
