Whirlpool electric range top burners

When cooking on this stove the burners seem to have a mind of their own. They have a tendency to go to High whenever they feel like... this is only on the larger burners not the small ones.... Help....

Probably have to replace the infinite switches. These are the controls you turn for the burners.

How do i change a whirlpool model wbp88800 burner control


Unplug stove. There should be two screws under edge of the cook top. You need to open oven door to get at them. Remove screws, lift cook top up at the front and prop it up. There will be two or three screws with spring clips holding the burner to the cook top. Unplug the connections, remove screws, remove burner. Install in reverse. I did this at Christmas just in time for dinner. It takes about ten minutes.

I have a Kitchenaid electric range Architect Series II. Seems every time I use the large burner on the right side there is some sort of residue left that is very hard to get off. I have already made a...


What are you using to clean the stove? Only cleaners made for ceran type tops should be used according to directions. Do not use enamel coated pans or glass pans on your cooktop.If you have a boil over, turn off the burner and change to a different burner immediately. Clean up the spill completely before cooking on that burner again. Use a flat edge razor to clean tough residue. Your cooktop will look new for years to come, even with heavy use.

As far as the scratch, don't use abrasive cleaners on the top and only use pots and pans with flat bottoms. If you do use cast iron pans, never scoot them around on the top.

After cleaning and taking off top of electric range everything lights up but no heat from either range or stove top


Be very careful around electricity. Keep in mind that 220 comes from both breakers and meets at the burner. Test with the plug out with a meter that beeps. Test the power from the outlet for 220 volts.

PF on Whirlpool super capacity 465 electric Stove Model RF366PXGW2


PF = Power Failure. Sounds like you have a bad electrical connection. With your breaker off, check that the connections from the cord to the range are all good and tight. Next, check the receptacle where the cord plugs in. Remove the cover and check the connections there as well. Examine the power cord also. There could even be a poor connection at the breaker box (at the circuit breaker or the neutral buss bar) but not as likely, as your problem appeared when you moved your range.

Burner temp.


If set to high, burners should remain on. If set to medium high let's say, they would be on for maybe 70 percent of the time, off for 30 percent of the time. If set to warm, they might be on only 10 percent of the time, off 90 percent. There is a high temp limiter which could turn a burner off. If you have a burner on high and are cooking on that burner and it goes off, the high temp limiter may be faulty. It is an integral part of the burner, and would require replacement of the offending burner. Burners are individually replaceable after lifting up the glass cook top.
