You can solve most electric range burner problems yourself and avoid the expensive service call. It’s quick and easy to replace a burner or bad burner socket.
Replace a bad burner or socket
If one of your electric burners isn’t heating, it could be a bad burner, a bad connection in the burner socket or a faulty switch.
To see if the problem is the burner, exchange the burner with one that you know works. If that burner won’t heat, the problem is either the burner socket or the infinite switch. (The burner prongs plug into the burner socket.) Connections in the burner socket can burn out and fail to provide power. If the prongs look burned, inspect the socket. If the socket looks charred or burned, replace it.
CAUTION: Always unplug your electric range before working on it.
