Question about Whirlpool GR465LXLS Electric Kitchen Range

Dual element does not regulate it's ON or Off only

Setting the dial has no effect on the dual element shtting off. Even at Low the element stays on. This seems very dangerous and I am suprised there has not been a recall or notification on this.

    Our stove had the outer ring fail on the dual burner, I ordered and replaced the entire burner from AppliancePartsPro on the internet. Strangely now the new burner (Both inner and outer) RINGS do not regulate, Full on or Off only.

    1.) When you mention "switch," I assume you are referring to the Users Burner Control Dial?

    2.) If the Switch (Dial) is bad, could the switch have forced the outer ring to go bad?

If your talking about the element on the surface, I will say you have a bad switch. Its the only thing that controls the element. You can unplug the range and remove the rear cover and check the switch with a ohm meter. But like I say its the only cotrol of the element so you will want to replace it. Good luck

Most likely the switch for that burner needs replacing

My LRG 30357ST gas range burners flame are too low, How can I increase them?

Do they go out on low setting? If so then your regulator is faulty, Never adjust flame higher unless reg. checks out fine. Even then get a qualified tech to do that

With the BES860 set to Dual Wall for full automation, even on the lowest auto grind volume setting, the grind volume is too large and it spills over. This is on double setting and using the double filter...

If your using the dial gauge with a dual wall basket, you need to leave the dial in the dual wall setting. If you move it beyond the dual wall setting, you are basically adding more volume to the basket. Leave it in the dual wall setting for dual wall baskets.

Otherwise it may be faulty, it could be your grind setting, try it on 13 and see how it goes.

Hob regulator wiring

OK, they are wired so that the two elements are switched in and out, to form, a single, a dual but in series, and a dual, but in parallel. like this Low, ONE, Element ONLY, The Other is out of circuit. Med, TWO elements are connected using the switch, in SERIES with each other. High, you switch TWO elements in PARALLEL. Simply meter the switch out to do that when each position is turned. Just think of it like, It's just two resistors, wired up. single, series, & parallel.

Top element only stays on high

The trouble would be a failed infinite heat switch. This is the adjustable switch you are using to set the element to low, medium or high.

**Use extreme caution if you are making the repairs yourself.....Turn off circuit breaker and verify power is off with a meter. 240VAC is present at the switch. In addition, the glass top and elements are very fragile.

JBP84TOHWW GE Electric Range Large Dual Element Not Working

similar problem after a power outage. Display would be blank until I turned ON an element (after which display would light, but no power to the respective element. No elements would heat even thought the dial shows power). Turning OFF the element would blank the display. I reseated the power cord and cycled the 50a basement breaker for 5 mins. Everything now works, but not sure for how long.
