Whirlpool Electric Range LR cooktop not working
 
The Lower Right Cooktop is not working. So I order a replacement element from the appliance pro. The tabs are not the exact match. But we still manage to get the element replaced. Connect the power, and the cooktop is still off. How do I know this is not a defect elent that Appliance Pro send to me. Or maybe it is something else.
Thanks!

Binw, The more common issue with an electric cook top element is the infinite control switch. It is more susceptible to failure, than the element itself. You will need a multi meter
Part number: AP5641751

Part number: AP5641751

to test the switch circuits for "open" or "closed" switch circuits and if necessary, voltage into the switch and out of the switch to the element. This relatively in expensive tool, can save a lot of time effort and money, in the long run.

Joe, Thanks for quick reply. I already have a multimeter. Don't know what to measure. Do you have any diagram or any service manual for this particular model? I need some instruction on what terminal to measure. A similar manual will help too.

Bin, AppliancePartsPros.com can usually supply wiring diagrams, service manuals, and printed information as requested. But, we need a model and serial number of the product to be serviced.

Get us a model number, and we'll get you as much info as possible.

Thanks,
