My disc element is 8" it will only get warm. It is a new element do I need switch for it?

George for Model Number kenmore 911-4358-810

ANSWER Hello George, You can test the switch to make sure that it is sending proper power to the element. You would check this by unplugging unit. Remove rear cover of the control. Plug unit back in and turn switch to on position. Check across H1 to H2 and you should have 240Vac. If you do not then you need to check L1 to L2 and see if you are getting 240 vac. Do this with switch off. If you are getting 240vac then you would need to replace the switch. If you are getting 240vac across H1 to H2 then you will need to check wiring from switch to element. Make sure that there are broken or damaged wires. Make sure any connectors are securely fastened.
