Thank you for contacting with your questions about your Whirlpool Free Standing Range. I am so sorry to hear one of the electric elements at the top is not working. I know how inconvenient it can be when a main element is out. I will be happy to help you with this.

There are several different failures that could be preventing your right front burner from heating. It could be a failed infinite switch, a defective burner element or a wiring issue between the components. If you are not confident you can test the parts and complete the repair yourself, you may want to schedule a service technician to diagnose and repair the range for you. If you would like to a schedule a techincian to come to your home, you can make an appointment at or by calling 1-800-469-4663.

To access the parts for testing, you will first need to disconnect power to the range. You can do that by either unplugging it, or turning of the power at the breaker. If you recently used the stove, let it cool completely before starting. Next, you will need to lift the main top. I have included the link for the parts diagrams so you may see how things are assembled.

To access the screws that hold the cooktop in place, you will need to open the oven door. The screws are key 3 on the cooktop parts diagram. The glass top will lift up with the frame that goes all the way around the glass. NOTE: . Be sure to label the wiring connections clearly before disconnecting any wires. This will help when you are ready to reassemble the parts. I recommend you start by testing the element itself with a multitester. To remove the element, pull it out of the terminal block. Place the element on a flat surface. Plug the red terminal wire into the multitester in the positive (+) jack. Plug the black terminal wire into the multitester in the negative (-) jack. Set the mulitester dial to the RX1 setting. (Lowest setting for low ohm appliances.) Place each probe on a terminal on the element (where the element plugs into the top of the stove. If there is continuity of electrical current through the element, you should get a zero reading. A reading of other than zero means there is an internal break in the element.

Next, turn the multitester dial to OHM. Touch the 2 probes together and turn the dial until it reads zero. That clears out the previ
ous readings that could interfere with the next test. Touch one probe to a terminal on the element and the other to the element itself. You should get a reading between 20 and 100 ohms if the element is still in working order. A higher reading may indicate an open circuit with an internal break. A lower reading indicates the element may have a short. I have included the link to order the element in case you need to do that.

If the element tests okay, then your failure is either in the infinite switch or the wiring. Refer to the Control Panel Parts diagram to see how to remove the back panel and access the infinite switch.  If you are able to access the switch (with the range still unplugged), then you can also check the wiring. Check the wiring for damage, as well as any loose connections. If you see damage to the wiring, replace the wire harness.  If you find no apparent problems, then you will need to test the switch.  Make sure you mark the locations of the wires on the terminals on the rear of the switch before you remove them. Set the multimeter to the lowest setting for ohms resistance. Then calibrate the meter. Next set the infinite switch to "high". Touch one probe to the terminal labeled L2. With the other probe touch the terminal labeled H2. If the meter doesn't move, or the ohms are infinity, the switch is faulty and should be replaced. I have included the links for the switch and the wire harness for you.
