I replaced the two large burner blocks and put in new burners. When I turned them on the red light shows power to them but do not heat up.
You will want to check the infinite switch on the elements in question from H1 to H2 with the knob turned to the on position and make sure that there is 240 vac at those points. If there is not 240 vac then the switch is bad and would need to be replaced.
I would like to replace the terminal blocks and wiring harness for all 4 burners, but I don't know what part number to order. The wires are not in good shape so I'm planning on replacing everything. Thanks
Answer Hello George,
I have always used 330031 and never had a problem. Just let the wire nut twist the wires, (twisting the wires before the wire nut installation will cause the wires to break). Also, put the heat shrink on over the wire nut and the heat from the surface element will shrink it, (no need for flame in there). If you would rather, you can order four of these WB17T10006 but you will end up with some of the wires being too long which can cause problems sooner than expected.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
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.
