The front right(as I face range) 1800watt 8" burner of my 11-year-old Whirlpool range no longer works. I ordered a new element today. How do I install the new element?
To replace the element you will first need to remove power from the range. Once the power has been removed you will take 2 screws out , one from either side of the side of the door opening and lift the top and slide forward. Disconnect the harness and flip top over on a soft surface. Remove old burner and install new.
My front left burner with single/ dual control does not lite the dual aspect--is this a switch or burner( part #?) issue?
You can use a flashlight to look down inside the element to see if you notice any burn marks on the element. You can also test the switch for 240 vac when the unit is turned on between H1 and H2 on the switch. If no power then you will need to replace the switch and if there is then replace element.
My largest burner will not turn on. When I turn on the burner it will not heat up. Do I need a new burner and if so which one is the correct burner it is on the left side front range.
Answer Hello Giovanna,
You will want to make sure that you are getting power to the element. If there is 240 vac coming to element and element is not coming on then you would need element 8273992. You can test at the infinite switch. Check for 240 vac across H1 and H2 with burner on. If there is 240 vac then the switch is good and you would have bad element.
What is the correct burner number for the right rear side?
Answer Orlando, the right rear surface element is part number 8523696. Thanks!
If the element wires are touching, do you need to replace the burner? I'm not able to bend them back in place.
Answer Hello Greg,
The wires cannot touch as this will give the circuit a different resistive value and will cause multiple issues including premature part failures. I would definitely change the element 8523696 if I could not manipulate the assembly to operate properly.
