Question about Whirlpool Cooktops
One of the burners on my Whirlpool cooktop is not working correctly. If we cook at High temp and turn off or turn to a lower temperature the element appears to start to cool, but in a few minutes it turns on again red hot. It will burn red hot for a few minutes before finally turning off or cooling to the desired temperature.
Is this a common problem with this type of cooktop?
It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.
