Outer cooking circle doesn't work

Got an issue with the bottom left cooking zone. Turning the knob past max and releasing doesn't work, the outer zone simply doesn't light up. (The inner circle also seems to be weak and not heat to maximum). The other zones all works fine, this one used to do just great up to a few weeks ago. Any suggestions appreciated.

problem with hob is probably water ingress in area of ignition unit - will probably cure itself oven is a completely separate unit from hob. problem with it is that you have to re-set the clock - you have it on automatic. after power outage, oven clock always has to be reset

The fan element (round) is more than likely blown. Open the oven door, take the rear cover off inside the oven (covers the element) and have a look at the element with a torch. If it is buckled, warped or has a blow hole in it, then it's faulty.

Just purchased Ilve Ceran ceramic cooktop. Is V364X the cooktop model number?The outer are of the left front burner does not heat up

You may already be aware of this but ... If our ilve ceran cooktop is the same as yours turn the knob past the 12 setting till you feel pressure and it springs back. This is the switch to fire up the marked outer elements.

The air conditioner fan was working intermittently. It would come on and off. Now it doesn't come on at all. Cant' find the fuse or is it a relay?

Just replaced the blower motor on mine it is a real pain to do.Very expensive to have done.Motor is $200.00 at Auto Zone new,25.00 at the bone yard.If you have an electrical tester for dc voltage unplug the connector check center wire to outer wires while turning the fan speed cntrl up and down (+ & -) to see if you have power going to it,If yes you have a bad motor.Keep in mind there is power at outer wires all the time but checked one to another between the three you will only get power when the switch is turned on.I see this was 6 days ago,hope it helps.Blower motors are common problems with Cadillacs.

Turning signals not working nor are flasher or hazard lights are not working where do i find the flasher box for turning signals

It is behind the fuse box. Follow the hood release line moving from the handle forward. On the left of the release line right before it starts to curve a lot I found two plastic 'cubes'. The bottom one with three prongs was the flasher.
