Both baking elements will not get hot. What can cause this?
Answer Hi, if both the broil and bake element is not coming on it can be a faulty control board. We will need to have your model number to locate the correct board for your unit. Thanks!

One of the burners does not have the hot surface indicator light come on. Do I replace a switch
The switch does not control the hot surface indicator. The elements control this light and if there is a certain one that does not turn it on then the element would need to be replaced. If this is a surface indicator to show that the burner is on and not a hot surface indicator then the issue would be the switch.
I got my switch for my stove but its been changed some the wiring spades are different. I now have a spade at s2 and only a single one at 4 where do the wires go on the switch?
Answer Hello charlie b. If you look on the old switch, you will see markings on the spades and these should match the new switch but may not be in the same location on the unit. Match L1 to L1 and L2 to L2 ect.... This should not be hard to replace on the unit.
Oven will not heat but all other pieces are working fine have had element checked what else could it be and how do I check for what it could be?
You will want to check the control board if the elements checked ok. To check the control board you will want to access the back of the control panel by pulling the unit out and removing the cover. With the unit turned to bake, check from L1 to bake for 240 vac. If there is proper voltage then you will need to replace the control board. If there is not then you will need to find where you are loosing power.
Oven will not heat up. The Broiler works fine but the oven does not. I replaced the lower element and that did not fix it. It quit working after running the self clean. Any suggestions.
Answer Hello Dennis,
You will want to check to see if you are getting power from the clock assembly to the element. You should have 240vac from L1 to bake. If you do not have this voltage then you have a bad clock which would need to be replaced.
Need to replace infinite switch because where the two wires connect together on middle left of switch got fried. It will be necessary to replace the clips. How hard will it be to replace these clips ? It also put a black burn mark on the white wire above it for the indicator light. can i just put some electrical tape on this wire since the light still works ?
This is for the front left dual burner.
Answer Cheryl, None of the repairs you need to make are very difficult, you should be able to handle it easily. Just remember to turn the power off to the range before you start. You will need a "crimping tool" and wire cutters to replace the terminals (clips) that were damaged. These tools and terminals are available at your local hardware, automotive supply or home improvement center. and applying electrical tape to the damaged wire is an "authorized" repair.
This electric range is in a rental unit of mine. The tenant says that the front right large burner does not get hot. All other burners are ok. I just ordered the new switch and element for the burner. Does anyone have instructions on how to replace the switch and element? Thanks.
Answer David, The infinite switch repalcement is a simple process "To remove the infinite switches: Infinite switches are used for the surface elements, warm and serve zone, and the warming drawer (if equipped). 1. Disconnect power from the range. 2. Remove the back panel from the backguard. 3. Mark and disconnect the wires from the infinite switch. 4. Remove the knob by pulling straight off. 5. Remove the two phillips-head screws holding the switch to the control panel. 6. Pull the switch from the back of the range." If you need to replace the element, it's a bit more involved. " 1. Disconnect power from the range. 2. Open the oven door and remove the two phillips screws holding the main top to the front frame and raise the main top. 3. Tag and disconnect wires from the element to be removed. 4. Remove the two screws, one on each end, of the element support bar. 5. The element is held to the support bar by 2 spring load clips. With a pair of needlenose pliers squeeze the tab on the spring mounting clip and push the element away from the bar. 6. The clips are held to the element by screws. When replacing the element be sure to note the hole number that the clip is attach to the old element." Thanks
