If one of the range surface elements in your range does not work, the problem may be associated to several factors. Any component between terminal box and surface element may be the cause of the problem. If you follow the following steps, we think that you will be able to identify the cause of the problem and probably fix it.

  1. 1Repair your range or oven free: Find if you have warranty for your range. If you bought your range within one year, it is most likely that you have warranty. Most appliance manufacturers provide one year free warranty. If you have warranty, call the company and get your range fixed. If you do not have warranty and do not want to spend too much money, you will have to spend some time to identify and possibly fix the problem. The steps below will guide you through the process of identifying and fixing the problem.
  2. 2 Take precaution: Turn off the power source by putting the control panel switch at OFF position or pulling out the fuse for the range. Unplug the power cord if there is any. Be absolutely sure that the range is not getting power by turning ON the switches for each heating element. With the power OFF and the switches of the elements ON, wait for about three minutes. Put your hand close to the heating elements; avoid touching the heating elements. You should not feel any heat. Turn the switches at OFF position.
  3. 3 Surface element’s contact to receptacle: Check if the burner is loosely connected. Pull out the surface element and re-insert it into the receptor. Make sure the burner element is tightly seated. Turn ON power and the switch for the burner. If the burner does not heat, read the next steps.
  4. 4 Surface element: Test the surface element. Read how to test a surface element for details on testing procedures. If the surface element is bad, you need to replace it. You should be able to replace the surface element if you follow the steps in the article how to replace a surface element. If this does not resolve the issue, move to the next step.
  5. 5 Receptacle: Check if the receptacle is bad. Read about how to test a surface element receptacle and determine if the receptacle is bad. If the receptacle is bad, you need to replace it. If you need instructions, read how to replace a surface element receptacle. If this does not resolve the problem, read the next step.
  6. 6 Switch: Check if the surface element switch is working correctly. Find details on testing in the article how to test surface element switch. If your test indicates that the switch is bad, you need to replace the switch. Call a qualified repair technician if the problem persists.
