Hi tomp707,

The first thing to do is to check the temperature knob to make sure it is not broken or loose, if loose you will have to tighten it but if it's broken a replacement is needed.

Another thing to check is the heating element. Here's how:

1. First, unplug the appliance from the electrical outlet. Locate the screws holding the hot plate together on the bottom of the unit. Remove the screws carefully. Make sure to remember where to replace the screws back again.

2. Then, remove the casing.

3. After that, inspect the burner. If the heating element is the problem, the break will be visible. If the break is near the end of the burner, just remove the damaged part and reconnect the remaining element to the terminal. If the break is in the middle of the element, the entire element needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How to switch on oven westinghouse kimberly 509


If the oven does not work on bake or broil settings then there has to be a problem with the circuit, either on the control board or the thermostat. If only the bake element does not work then the element itself most likely needs to be replaced. There are ways to isolate further but takes some basic electrical knowledge and tools. Note that I am not recommending that you do the following linked procedure - merely pointing out an information source. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZNyEqXCNOA

Corning Pc-320 hotplate/stirrer. Where can I get a manual?


Why do you need a manual there is nothing to do. To make the stirring function work, you need a magnetic stir bar (just a Teflon coated magnet. There is a motor-powered spinning magnet under the ceramic plate.

The heater is not thermostatically controlled. It just heats more as you turn the dial more.

Yes i have a westinghouse ppl776 ceramic cooktop and can not regulate temperature on any control knobs ,plates run flatout, is the problem with the control knobs or hotplates


When this occurs the problem is always with the hotplate controllers. Has this happened to all hotplates at the same time or has it occurred over a certain time period?

The left front burner will turn on for a few seconds then turn off then back on and off. It would not heat the pan on it. This is a glass top range. Are there any tests that I can do to find the problem?...


If the rest of the hotplate elements are working correctly and you are performing the same tests with all of them then you have a problem. We know that the hotplate works. When hotplates are faulty they don't turn on and off, they just don't work. This would generally be a hotplate controller problem. It sounds as if the controller is faulty and requires replacing. If you are handy you can switch the suspect hotplate controller with a good one and see what happens. This will confirm our suspicions.

Hotplate on ceramic cooktop not working, another won't turn down.


If 1 of the plates is not working at all, then it is going to be the plate itself, or a faulty regulator, you will have to take it apart to check the plate.
The other plate that you cannot control, needs the regulator replacing.

Deep-fryer thermostat


It is possible that the heater is shortened and it burns thermostat. Thermostat's are usually bimetal type mounted on ceramic so voltage does not matter a much.

Replacing faulty regulator for hotplate


Remove hotplate and oven control knobs. Under the 2nd and 5th knobs is an extra screw which holds on the front cover. Unscrew these and free the cover then access is gained to the screws (2 on each edge) which removes the plate to which the regulators are fixed.Remove the faulty regulator by unscrewing it from the plate,(2 screws) It is an easy job then to install the new part taking care to put the correct wires on the correct terminals. Reassemble, job done!
