One of the large burners on my cooktop recently stopped working. The continuity checked out on the infinite switch. I'm assuming that the burner element is bad. Any tips on diagnosing/fixing the problem with the burner? Thanks
Answer Hello LSH. You can test the element and see if any of the ribbon elements are burnt or broke. The element should read closed for continuity across the ribbon elements. Hope this helps.

The element I ordered is moving around & does't stay steady.
How can you stop from moving?
Answer Roger, Apparently, you forgot to mark and install the new element to the mounting studs on the burner bracket ? " CAUTION: Fibre Ceramic material is very fragile on heating element - avoid contacting. 6. Remove the clips from the mounting studs on the heating element that must be removed. 7. Remove 4 screws (two each side) mounting the radiant element support and lower down on top of oven liner. (Mark heating element stud holes and support screw holes) 8. Disconnect wires and lift element off. 9. Assemble mounting studs, (Reference heating element removed for stud locations DO NOT over TIGHTEN STUDS) Temperature Limit/Hot Light Switch to new unit.
10. Position Springs over mounting studs and insert into marked holes. (It is not necessary to reinstall clips.) 11. Remount support to COOKTOP making sure that the Elements are pressed firmly against bottom of glass and aligned with target areas (Always start the left two screws first for proper alignment). 12. Lower cooktop slowly making sure vent aligns with cooktop opening." Once the element is insalled on the studs properly, there is little to no movement, and the element is aligned properly to the opening in th glass. Good Luck and Thanks
