Have maytag smooth top range. Everything works. The front right burner will only stay on high. It does not matter what you set the controls at it is always high. It has a small or large burner choice. Does not matter witch you choose, still high. No change. What are your thoughts?

In this case the burner switch needs replaced, if it works but only on high leads to the switch.
These switches operate like regular dimmer switches. By regulating the amount of electricity flowing through the switch to the burner they allow you to adjust the temperature setting, if you can't adjust it then the switch is bad. I suggest you get a new one from the parts supply and look at it and decide whether or not you need help with the replacement, they aren't hard but you need to decide and let me know, but it really is simple if you can unplug wires and plug new ones in and turn a nut to get the switch off your probably capable of this repair your self.

    No, still would be the switch, the probes are for the surface temp lights, that let you know the surface is still hot!

Ge true temp stove top burner wont stay on


dont know how old unit is or how familiar you arewiththe unit, but the burner will need to heat up and cycle off/on. no matter how high or low you set the setting it will heat to a specific temp and cycle off, if hte burner remained RED all the time the glass would crak( so dont go by appearnce of burner, the glass should dictate the temp

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.

Burner on range will not turn off


Look at the back of your range there should be schemetic for your power control board. look for defective burner wire going into relay. There should be 5 relays in rows. Realy is the problem. I had the same problem with my front left burner stuck on high.
After replacing everything works okay.
