Hello, my Whrilpool Model # RF214LXTQ glasstop stove surface element burner just stopped working. It is the left front one. I am not sure if it is the infinite switch or the burner itself. I did a visual check and the burner looks fine, so iam guessing its the switch? Can you please give me the part numbers I would need for both the burner and the switch? Also do all four burners use the same inifinite switch? Thank you
The left front burner for your unit is part number W10242957. You can test to see if it is the switch or the element by checking the voltage from H1 to H2 on the burner switch with the switch in the on position. If there is 240 vac then the switch is good and the element is faulty. If there is not 240 vac then the switch is faulty. The part numbers for the switches are Left front and right rear 3148953. For the Right front and left rear the switch part number is 3148952.
The front left dual burner will not adjust. When on, it stays on high. What's the problem?
Answer Hello Bill,
Sounds like you need to check the harness for any shorts and if none are present, replace the infinite switch 9761048.
The left front burner (dual burner) when using it either screams red hot or low to medium low. there is no in between. Is the switch bad or the burner?
Answer John, The infinite switch 9759474 controls the voltage to the burner, thru the L2 circuit of the switch, your on the right track, you most likely have a inoperative infinite switch. Thanks and Good Luck.
