What needs to be replaced when the burner is turned on low but gets red hot?
Answer Hello Dean. Its possible you may have a bad element, but it sounds like you may have a bad infinite switch.
We have to replace these blocks at least once every six months. It's always the large burner blocks that go bad. Any idea why they keep shorting out? Thank you.
Answer Hello Don. If they are shorting out, it may be due to bad elements causing arching inside the terminal block. I would try replacing the element with the block.
