You will need a wiring diagram and a multi-tester (volt meter, etc). Find the diagram for the elements, trace your wires to that switch, and check for voltage coming out of that infinite switch. If you have voltage, then its your element (85% chance its the element anyway). Good Luck.

Ceramic stove top large element on high and won't shut off until turned all the way off


The range surface burner control switch, that the knob is attached to, needs to be replaced. The link is an example, as I don't know the model. They are mostly similar between manufacturers.

Frigidaire stove front large/small burner combination. Large burner works but the small burner in the centre of the large burner does not come on at all with any heat. ??


This is a inner/outer burner type assembly? Sounds like a glass top.
Either way, your switch for that burner or the burner needs to be replaced.
If you are able and it is possible, inter change switches to see if it makes a difference. Interchange Large with large, small with small.
If yous switches are connected as one unit, you will not be able to do this. Sorry, I have not looked up your wiring diagram.

Whirlpool dryer overheats element high heat all heat settings


First check the heating element for short to frame. If it is not shorted remove the filter chute and clear it out. The control thermostat has 4 wires. 2 small wires come from the timer and power up a small heater inside the control thermostat making it shut down faster for perm press and knit cycles. Over time this bimetal inside the control stat won't shut down fast enough or not at all. If it won't shut down then the element will gl;ow reed and the base 250 stat on the heater chamber will shut down. If it fails to do so then the smaller one up top will trip at 300f. If it fails to trip or the filter chute is clogged the fuse skinny white plastic thing next to the control tstat will met and shut down operation.

Whirlpool Range model RF386PXGQ2 broiler won't shut off


Hi.

If the element does not turn off, possible faults are:

Shorted temperature probe.
Test temperature probe reading impedance. If impedance is zero or lower than 0.500 Ohms, the the probe is shorted. A good probe reads about 1KOhms.

Contact at element. A contact in element wiring harness may cause the element to stay on. Do continuity test between ground and element and on wiring harness.

Defective control module.
If problem is none of the above, then it is the oven electronic control(ERC). The ERC can be tested reading voltages.

Testing must be done by a trained technician.

Large eye thermostat is not working. Heat stays


Hello JBlum, Yes, most stove top elements, including those with the thermo sensors, are replaceable. Without the model number, I can't steer you towards the exact part number, but you can look it up yourself at www.searspartsdirect.com

Just enter in the full model number of your GE range and it will bring up all the line drawings and parts lists for it. You can either order the parts from Sears, or use any other supplier you wish.

Just remember to disconnect the range from the wall outlet before you undertake any repairs or attempt to replace any parts, so you'll be safe.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

GE JSP39 range; front right burner eye doesn't work at all


there are two tests to chk which is bad,wether it is the control switch or the elemnt.disconnect the power to stove and open the top and disonnect the wires from elemnt and chks the continuity of the elemnt coil with a multimeter.if the meter does not read continuity then elemnt is bad.to confirm this connect the wires back to the elemnt and plug the unit to power, turn on the switch to high position and read the voltage coming to elemnt.it should be 240 volts.if u read that voltage, then for sure element is bad.if every thing is opposite to this then it is the control switch which is bad.

Water boiled over into control knobs for the cook top elements.


Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.

Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.

The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the
"Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.

In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.

My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.

You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.

When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.

I hope this helps.

Dual element burner on glasstop range...inner element stays on


It is the burner control (behind the knob). The triac in the control has failed. $50 item, 10 minute change. Just make note which wire goes to which terminal.

I doubt that it is the control board, as the board has little to do with the stove top, but rather controls the display and the oven temperature/feedback monitoring.

Hope this helps.
