Westinghouse ceramic hotplate will not change to simmer

Hi Support Staff,
( Westinghouse Ceramic Hotplate Electrical Stove Model: PAJ806W: Ser.No.B2105684. Prod. Ref.2360245 )

Problem: One of the hotplates remains on 'High' even the knob/switch is turned down to 'simmer' . What may be the cause of this/ Does the Ceramic
hotplates have an element beneath the ceramic top and how does one change these. Thanks in advance.

Kindest regards
Jerry Ambrose

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Question from electricain with long

I wonder if L1 and N are reversed, at least for this hot plate. The readings you get are consistent with a switched neutral and always-connected L1. This is not permitted in any electrical code I know.

If you get a constant 240 V at "terminal 1" referenced to "terminal 2", but no heat, and the resistance is consistent with a 1400 W heater when it's cold, I'd suspect a heater terminal or the element itself is opening up when it gets warm. If you have a means of measuring current such as a clamp-on induction ammeter, you may see an initial current up to 6 amps, then a quick drop-off to zero, random fluctuation, or cycling on and off. That would confirm my hypothesis.

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

I have problems with my Hotplate!!!!! Name of the hotplate is just Induktion. The Hotplate is a Induktion and after a moment of heating it starts to blik and shots down with the Error: E R


Hello,
From my previous mechanical engineering work, and have maintained a few of similar problems, but different maker. I found one one thqat it was not properly wired, check the owners manual and go over wire diagram. Secondly, is the kitchen on the other 2 I did the breqaker for that room was way over loaded, and sometimes it will shut your equiptment down b3efore the breaker goes off. This is because when the element reaches a certain tempature, or even rising in tempature the stove will kickback, almost like a car going into safemode, so it does not destroy the stove. I had to call an 3electrician, because3 I am not a certified elec.

The oven door has disengaged at the hinge I cannot get back into the slot on the stove westinghouse


Hi You cant do this without taking the door off the oven this is a 2 person job when it has disengaged There is a wire clip on the bottom of the K type hinge that hooks on to the top of the hinge if you can get them to hook together you can then remove the door You need to do this to both hinges lay it flat get the 2 hinges hooked together put the door back in the oven and release the hook the hook also looks like a flat u shaped bracket it depends on which westinghouse stove you are talking about as to where it is located mostly it is very close to the oven itself Regards Geoff Stove Recyclers

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?

My right front burner will not turn off on my electric stove top.


Its probably the switch for that element, the contacts are fused. If this is a smooth top ceramic stove then the control relay board relay for that element is stuck.
