Hi ~ I was using my top burner and all of a sudden it just quit working, but the other 3 still work. It is the big one up front. Was thinking it is a heating element, but I see other questions and people are wondering if it is the switch.

ANSWER Hello Marie. Test for power coming from the switch to the element when the switch is on. Be careful as this is live power. If there is power to the element, replace the element. If there is none, replace the switch in the unit. 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
