The large, back, left burner has stopped working on my stove top. Is it the element or the switch that needs replaced? What is the part number I need? Thanks!
Answer Hello Jennifer,
If the infinite switch is passing voltage to the element, the element has failed and will require replacement. If the infinite switch isn't passing voltage to the surface element, the infinite switch has failed. The only way to determine the cause of the issue is by using a voltmeter on the circuit to see which has failed. To test, put the voltmeter on the infinite switch terminals marked H1 and H2. Turn the infinite switch to the on position where the failure was experienced. If you read 240Vac on these two terminals, replace the surface element 8523692. If not, replace the infinite switch 7403P239-60.
