All burners on an electric stove get super hot no matter what temperature the knob is set on. I have done some research and found the problem might be the surface element switch. Does the Surface Element Switch control all burners? Otherwise it seems odd they would all go bad at once.
ANSWER Hello Nancy. You need to check and see if any of the wires on the unit is grounded and causing the element to do like described. It sounds like a wiring issue more than a switch issue.
