This infinite switch is for 8-inch range burners. When an element is unable to produce any heat on a modern oven, the problem may lie with the infinite switch. This switch is responsible for sending power to the surface elements. Check the element and terminal block to ensure they are working properly. If they are in working order, check the infinite switch at the control panel for any wires that have overheated, or broken terminals to or from the infinite switch. If the infinite switch is damaged or malfunctioning, it will need to be replaced. Remember to unplug your range before beginning this repair.

Question:

Indicator light remains on after burner switch is turned off, which switch needs to be replaced 8" or 6" switch?

Samuel for model number MER6769BAW
Answer:

Hi Samuel, Thank you for your inquiry. First, disconnect power form your appliance when doing any repairs. On the side that the light is on, both your switches have a "P" terminal. Be very careful when doing this. Unplug the wire from the "P" terminal from one of your switches and see if that turns the light off. If the light stays on you will know that you have to replace the switch your did not unplug. If the light shuts off, you will know that the switch you have to replace is the one you unplugged. If you feel that you are unable to do this repair, I would recommend contacting an appliance repair technician to help you out. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Our 8 inch burner heats ok but at times will go to full heat and no control unless you turn the knob off. Is this the limiter causing it to overheat?

Curtis for model number MER5752BAQ
Answer:

Hi Curtis, Thank you for the question. Sounds like you will need to test the limiter on the element. To test the limiter with a multi meter, you will test from 1a to 2a and at room temp there should be continuity. If there is no continuity the element is defective. If it tests good then you will need to replace the switch that controls the element. Hope this helps!

Surface element light on when all are off.

I raised the stove top to verify with a volt meter that electricity was truely going to the elements and which ones were receiving current. I removed the back panels to gain access to the controls and wiring. After checking the circuitry with the volt meter I determined that one of the thermostatic controls was defective. I ordered a new control and 8" burner (which showed signs of deterioration) from PartSelect and received them the next afternoon. It took less than an hour to reassemble.

Installed new switches and elements

just move one wire at a time. Each switch has 5 wires and I am sure mixing them would not be good.

Ordered parts, they shipped same day. Arrived exactly as predicted. Totally non-stress. Can't find a thing to complain about.

Thanks PartSelect
