Before replacing the burner I recommend confirming the diagnosis first. We need to check the voltage on the surface unit switch to know if the switch or burner has failed. If you have 240volts out of the switch then we know that the burner has failed or the harness between the switch & burner is bad.

You will need to slide the range out a few inches to access the screws holding the control panel in place.

Disconnect power, roll the control panel forward to expose the switch terminals and reconnect power. 2. With a Voltmeter set for AC and a scale higher than 240 Volts measure the voltage drop between terminals P1 and P2. If the meter reads zero the wiring between the main terminal block on the range and the switch is open. If the meter reads line to line voltage (around 240 VAC) go to step 3. 3. With the switch turned clockwise to the HI position, measure the voltage drop between terminals 2 and 4. If the meter reads zero the switch is defective. If the meter reads line to line voltage measure the voltage drop between terminals 2 and 4A. If the meter reads line to line voltage the switch is good. Go to step 4. 4. Raise the main top and locate the two terminals on the element with the wires from terminals 2 and 4 are connected. Measure the voltage drop between these two terminals. If the meter reads zero the wires between the switch and the elements are open. If the meter reads line to line voltage the element is defective.

All voltage checks out. The switch is good. Now the questions is...How do I replace the burner? How do I lift the top to get to the burners? That is my question Thank you, Tim

Thank you Tim, It is a good thing to make sure all the voltage checks are good. At another website youtube with a range that might look a little different than yours but the fix is the same as yours will help. Here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EZIT6KXncE If you have more questions reply to this post. Thank you for choosing Manage my Life.
