Product Description

Infinite Burner Switch Specifications

The infinite burner switch controls the stove top eight-inch surface burner, which is the large surface element. If your surface element is not warming up, the element can be tested to determine whether or not it is defective. If your element is not defective, then it is more than likely that the infinite burner switch is the issue. Before you install the infinite burner switch you will need to unplug your range from the power supply, or shut off the home circuit breaker. The tools you will need to do this repair include a number one square head screwdriver and a pair of needle nose pliers.

This part says it fixes a burner that wont heat or start, what if the burner overheats will this part help fix this problem?
For model number FEF366ESH
Hi Anthony, Thank you for your question. It could be your switch, however you should also check the wiring between the switch and the burner, and your should also check your burner as well. It could be either of these parts that are causing your issue. Though more likely your switch or burner itself. Good luck with your repair.

The 8" burner would glow really hot and would not turn off or change temperature. Found that it was most likely the infinite burner switch. Ordered one and replaced but the burner is still getting way to hot. What else could i do to fix this problem?
For model number TEF361ESD
Hi Nick, Thank you for your question. There are really only two other parts that you could look at. You should take a look at the wiring between the burner and the switch. See if there is any damage. If there is not, then you will likely have the change your burner. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

The front left element gets hot then turns off then back on...?
For model number FEF368GBD
Hi Frank, Thank you for your question. This particular problem could be either your switch or your element. You will have to test both with a multi meter to see which one is malfunctioning. Remove both parts from the appliance to test them. Make sure to turn your switch to an on position while you are testing. If your meter shows no change that means the switch is bad and needs to be replaced. Your burner should read anywhere between 0 - 120 ohms of resistance. Good luck with your repair.

When turning element on it stays hot even when turned down on low
For model number 880652325r2
Hello and thank you for writing. It certainly sounds like it could be a faulty oven sensor PS11749737 and/or possibly a faulty switch PS12349727, you should check the part(s) for signs of damage, and replace as necessary. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

Burner works, but light stays on even after burner has cooled.
For model number LFEF3048QF
Hello Doug, thank you for writing. This is likely due to a faulty Infinite Burner Switch. This part number PS1145040 for the large burners, and part number PS1145039 for the smaller burners on your model range. You may also want to consider the Electronic Control Board, part number PS12114577 as the cause. Good luck with your repair!

My top burners are working. When I turn on the oven the temp shows but no heat.
For model number CFEF3012PWA
Hello Merle, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the oven sensor PartSelect Number: PS12724046 first. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1000 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is good you may need to replace the Oven Control Board PartSelect Number PS1528267. Hope this helps!

Back Burner didn't function
We moved into our townhouse about 6 yrs ago. During the home inspection we checked the range and saw the Red light come on when we turned on each burner. After moving in we realized the large back burner did not work. The light came on but the element never got hot. I of course replaced the element but that did not work. Several years passed and we just ignored the issue. We just got by with 3 burners. Lately we realized how much easier it would be to have all four burners working. Knowing that we will be selling our townhome soon we figured we should either fix the problem or replace the range.

I didn't want to call a repair man because I didn't want to be charged a $150 to have him come out and they to pay extra for parts (and of course a 2nd visit). So I went to www.Partselect.com and typed in the model of my range. Found the diagrams for my range and saw that from the switch ran a pair of wires to a Universal Receptacle (aka Terminal Block Kit). I figured since the Red light turns on when I turn the switch on it has to be the Terminal Block.

I ordered the part from www.Partselect.com ($14.00 including shipping) and replaced the part. The burner still would not get hot. I decided to test the switch. I removed the Control Panel cover (which is secure by 2 screws just below the digital clock). Once the cover was off, I saw the Blue wires going from the switch to the Terminal Block. To test the switch, I disconnected the two Blue Wires from connectors H1 and H2 and temporarily connected them to H1 and H2 of another switch. Sure enough, when I turned the other switch the element got hot.

So I placed another order from www.Partselect.com for a replacement switch ($50 including shipping). When that part came, I flipped the electrical circuit going to the range. I then removed the Control Panel cover again. With the new switch in hand (holding it near the old switch still attached to the Control Panel, I used the pliers to pull out each wire from it's connector and place it to it's corresponding connector on the new switch. Once all the wires were connected to the new switch, I pulled the knob of the switch off then used a phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws holding the switch to the control panel. I replaced the old switch with the new one put the screws back in, replaced the knob. Turned the circuit back on and tested to make sure that the element got hot. When it did, then I replaced the Control Panel cover and enjoyed a nice dinner that was cooked in less time than we're accustomed to because of the new burner. So I spent a total of $64.00 to fix our range. Less than half the amount I would've spent if I called for a technican. And far less then buying a new range.

Partselect is a great resource for information. They have diagrams and schematics available to view and/or download. And when ordering it's a snap because there's an "Add to Cart" button next to each part it lists. So there's no confusion. I've already recommended Partselect.com to about 5 people. And will continue to do so!!

If burner was placed on HIGH, it wouldnt lower heat once LOW setting chosen
I had to replace the switch in the back of the control knobs. I was very grateful to the female phone attendant who answered my call. Since my part number had switched a few times, she took the time to reverify the "blueprints" of my machine with the parts carried at Parts Select and she helped me be assured that I was buying the correct part for my machine. She was SOOOO helpful. Will definately buy again from your store.

Front Burner was on high all the time when on
Turn off the breaker to the stove. Very important because when you move the control panel around after removing it, you can inadvertently touch a hot wire to a grounded metal part on the stove. Remove the 3 nuts from the back of the control panel and the two nuts from under neath the control panel on either far side. Pull the control knob off by pulling straight away from the control panel. Remove the switch by unscrewing the two screws. Match the 5 wires from the old switch to the new switch by removing one at a time and paying attention to the labeling of each on both switches. Reassemble in reverse order. Turn breaker back on.

Electric burner switch shorted out.
First I unpluggd the range and removed the back cover using a nut driver. Then I removed the knob by pulling (using a little force),Not very hard to do. I uscrewed two screws that hold the switch from the front of the range. Then I pulled the switch out about three inches and used pliers to disconnect the wires one at a time and connect them to the new switch. finally I finished the installation by reversing all the steps. Total time to install the switch took approximately 5(five) minutes.

the indicator light for burners broke and shorted agaist the back panel on range
This caused the burner switch cotacts to arc burning out the switches. It took 30 or 43 minutes to replace the switches and put the range back together. The bake element took 10 min. ti replace. Grandma has her range back and I am a happy grandpa!! Thanks for the help and we saved over $170.00 for the repairs. Jim Johnson
