The burner would keep heating after turning off the switch
Start by turning off the power to the range.
It was fairly easy to take the "Control Deck" off the top of the range by removing about 8 screws. I leaned the deck forward without removing any wires except a green ground that was held on by one of the screws.
There are two small screws under the switch knob holding the Infinite Switch to the panel. I removed these and let the switch hang on the wires. To avoid missplacing or crossing the wires... I moved one wire at a time to the new switch, then attached the switch to the panel and put it all back together.
Whole job was done in about 15 minutes

Burned out wires and 2 switches.
Unscrewed the switches and let the switch hang while replacing one wire at a time. Followed instructions on wire replacement. Exact parts, only shaft on 6" switch was too long -- okay, because it is designed to break off a piece on end of shaft, then the knob fit. Everything was perfect.

It is a Whirlpool. Does the 3149400 replace the 3148953 for the 8 inch element control?
For model number YIES350XW1

Is this part number the same for large burner and small burners . Will it shut off my cooktop light indicator which stays on all the time . Thank you
For model number Wfc150moewo Electric range
PartSelect logo
Hello and thank you for writing. Small 6 inch burner PS11740785 Large burner PS11740775. After installation of the new switch, we suggest to try a hard reset: Go to your breaker box and shut the breakers for your unit off, wait 5 minutes and then turn the breaker to on again. That should hopefully clear this problem of the indicator light. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

My 8" burner has no temperature control; when i turn it on, it is high only. I have researched that the element control switch needs to be replaced, but i have found two 8" switches for this model range. What is the difference between part# wp3149400 and wp3148953?
For model number ACR4303MFW
PartSelect logo
Hello David, Thank you for your question. The correct switch for your model is under part WP3149400. Part wp3148953 is the same part, but this switch is not compatible to your model. Hope this helps!

The 8" front right burner gets warm, but will not glow red. It also will not get hot enough to boil water in a pot. Could it be the limiter, or perhaps the infinite switch?
For model number KERI203PWH3
PartSelect logo
Hello Greg, thank you for your question. The issue could be with either of those parts. We would recommend testing the switch first to determine the issue. Here is a link that will provide information on testing that part. https://www.partselect.com/Range-Stove-Oven+Infinite-Switch-Testing+repair.htm I hope this helps!

If i replace the switch that activates the burner, will the stove turn on? Cause only one burner burned. Not the all of them
For model number RF302BXDW0
PartSelect logo
Hello Carlos, Thank you for the question. If it is just the one burner not working then replacing the switch or the element should fix the issue. If none of the burners are working you may have more issues within the appliance. I suggest starting with the wiring for burn marks or defects. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!
