Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful

I have a frigidaire ceramic cooktop stove/oven . The inside part (smaller one) of the left front dual burner does not work. The outer burner lights up but the insdie does not. Do I need to replace the entire surface element or is it something else?

ANSWER Hello Fran, To ensure that you are replacing the proper part you want to check both the burner switch 316238201 and the element 316464901. Here are some instructions on how to test these two components. 1. Disconnect power, roll the control panel forward to expose the switch terminals and reconnect power. 2. With the switch turned clockwise to the HI position, measure the voltage drop between terminals 2 and 4. If the meter reads zero the switch is defective. If the meter reads line to line voltage the switch is good. Go to step 3. 3. Raise the main top and locate the two terminals on the element where the wires from terminals 2 and 4 are connected. Measure the voltage drop between these two terminals. If the meter reads zero the wires between the switch and the elements are open. If the meter reads line to line voltage the element is defective. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
