Whrlpool Electric Stove Top Burners

When I turn on the burners of our whirlpool electric stove top cooker they turn on, the after a few seconds they turn off, then turn on, and continues to do this. I turned them all on and all four burners do the same thing. They start and go off and on continuously.

This is a ceramic top i am guessing.
this is normal, it isthe way it is designed.
it does this so that it does not cause a heat fracture to the glass.. it will continue to turn on and off.. but if you put a pot of cold water on it you will find that this will happen alot less frequently.

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?


The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

Broke glass on electric genn-air


Please do not use the stove if the element is viable because of broken glass, this could become a danger to yourself.

Look at the cost of a new stove, you should be able to get one for
around 400.00. One of my customers had a glass top with 4 burners,
they had the same thing happen, the cost to replace the top was
1,200.00. So I would assume that you can get a new stove with 4
burners less then it would cost to replace the part on a stove you don't like. Maybe there is a LOWES around you to look at stoves,
they seem to be everywhere,like death and taxes.

As for putting a 4 burner top on a stove that has 2 with grill, I don't think it can be done without the extra cost of adding the parts to run the other 2 burners, so like I said in the long run,it just might be cheaper to but a new stove. It should not be a big deal to remove the exhaust from the grill part of the stove.

I looked at the model# you put down,and it does not have a grill,
from what I see, there are 4 burners and a downdraft vent in between the 4 burners, there are 6 models with this part # and none have a grill,only the downdraft vent.

If the model# is right, the cost would be around 300.00 for the glass, and then the cost of having it replaced. So I would say over
400.00, In which case for the same amount you could have a new one, but you must weigh the difference for yourself and see what you think is the best way to go.
If you have any more questions,please post back and everyone is more than willing to help you. I hope I have helped a little.

Electric stove top


Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.
