My disc element is 8" it will only get warm. It is a new element do I need switch for it?
Answer Hello George,
You can test the switch to make sure that it is sending proper power to the element. You would check this by unplugging unit. Remove rear cover of the control. Plug unit back in and turn switch to on position. Check across H1 to H2 and you should have 240Vac. If you do not then you need to check L1 to L2 and see if you are getting 240 vac. Do this with switch off. If you are getting 240vac then you would need to replace the switch. If you are getting 240vac across H1 to H2 then you will need to check wiring from switch to element. Make sure that there are broken or damaged wires. Make sure any connectors are securely fastened.
How is the stovetop attached, enabling removal/replacement of the element?
Answer Jonathon, Heres some information that should help you out. "1. Turn off the electrical supply going to the range. 2. Open the oven door.
3. Remove the two cooktop bracket screws from the bottom front of the cooktop. 4. Pull the cooktop forward far enough to
unhook it from the top of the range. 5. Lift the front of the cooktop and rest it against the control panel. CAUTION: Be careful that the cooktop does not accidentally fall forward. 6. To remove an element and limiter: a) Remove the wires from the element and limiter terminals. b) Remove the element bracket screw (shown above) for the element and limiter you are servicing. c) If you are removing the center element and limiter, remove the screw from the hot surface indicator bracket and remove the indicator. d) Carefully lift the bottom of the bracket just far enough to remove the element. NOTE: If you are removing an element at the top of the bracket, remove the
lower element first, lay it on top of the range, and then remove the top element from the bracket. e) Remove the screws from the limiter
and remove it from the element. NOTE: Be careful when you remove the limiter that you do not break the sensor tube." This information covers several different models, but you should have enough information to repair the range. Good Luck and Thanks
