Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The only parts involved in the RF burner circuit are the infinite switch, radiant burner and the cooktop lock out relay board. If one of the components were open as you stated then the radiant burner would not operate. Since you�re not able to control the radiant burner the infinite switch likely has a stuck contact. The right front infinite switch is part #316238200 which can be ordered from Sears PartsDirect

The temperature limit switch is part of the radiant burner and if the cooktop lock out board had failed or the limit switch, the burner would not come on at all. Since the infinite switch will not regulate the radiant burner and it's stuck on High, the infinite switch would have to have a stuck contact.

I added an image below of the electrical circuit traced in RED and BLACK. NOTE: Disconnect the range from the power supply before servicing.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
