A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The only thing that can cause the surface element receptacle to burn out and loose contact with the surface elements is a bad connection between the male prongs of the element and the receptacle. I recommend replacing the receptacle and the element at the same time. Make sure the male prongs on the new element are making a good tight connection with the new receptacle. Make sure the male prongs are not bent or twisted a little causing a bad/weak connection. A bad connection causes resistance when current/amperage is flowing to the element which will create heat and eventually burn the prongs or receptacle. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before servicing.

This may be the issue. If not, please reply and I will be glad to assist you further.

Robert: You can sand and clean the prongs but if they are burnt and pitted, replace the surface element or it will cause the same symptoms.
