Whirlpool Cook Top blowing burner elements
« on: April 16, 2011, 01:39:02 PM »

Hi Everyone,

Wondering if anyone has come across this issue of burning out the burner elements. There has been 3 new right rear burner elements replaced on this cook top. Each each replacement works for a very short time?? Any ideas?

Thanks!!!!!

Mike

I would perform a amp draw test on the burner and check it against specs.
The electronic control may be at fault.

Thank you jumptrout!

The electronic control was the culprit.

Burner Element shouldn't burn out.. as long as the incoming voltage isn't much higher than 240v
... and you're using an OEM part
