The burners on top of the range are not getting as hot as they use to. Do I need to replace them with new units?
Answer Hello Bruce,
This can be the fault of the elements or the infinite switches. They both play a role in temperature control.
Left rear burner does not come on. Indicator light on control comes on. Does this indicate a bad burner or a bad control?
You can test to see which one is faulty by accessing the switch by pulling the unit out and removing the rear cover. With the burner turned on you will test for 240 vac on the H1 to H2 terminals on the switch. If there is 240 vac then the switch is good and the element is bad. If there is not 240 vac then the switch would need to be replaced.
What is surface element I need for the left rear burner?
Answer Ace, the left rear burner for the model provided is part number 8523696. Thanks!
My large left front dual element is not working- just the outside section is working. Need part number for this unit on model KECC567KSS02. Can I put this in myself?
Answer Hello Joe! You'll need to check the element part number 4453909 and the infinite control switch part number 4456027. The easiest way to determine the issue is to test the switch first. Remove power to the range, remove the control panel back cover turn the switch to the low to medium setting and check for a "closed" circuit between the P2 terminal and the #4 terminal with the wires disconnected, with a multi meter. If the circuit doesn't close, then the switch has failed, if the switch is OK, the burner is at fault.
