The range is 8 years old, is it financial sense to replace the infinite switch for the 2 large burners o rreplace the range with a newer more efficient model?

Here are your parts

I do not think you will find a much more efficient unit.
Heating elements have not gotten more efficient.
Perhaps they added so insulation to the oven but that would not make a big difference.
Getting a convection oven will be more efficient and more expensive.

Personally I would just replace the switch.

It is not difficult.
Just take your time and be sure to unplug the stove before starting.
Also when removing/re-connecting wires do it one at a time or make yourself a diagram so you know where they go.

The following should also help.
Whirlpool KR-31 30 inch Free Standing Electric Range with Self Clean Service Manual - ApplianceDigest.com
You have to join the site to download the manual but it is free and this is a very good site for manuals and other info for the appliance repair DIYer.
