Since I find these forums very useful - I figured I would do a minor amount of payback and indicate the solution to this issue.

The problem was resolved by replacing the "Switch infinite control (Dual)" switch for that burner. So, I suppose the proper diagnosis of this would be:
- do both sections of the larger burner work from time to time...if so, you probably need a new switch instead of the burner.

I now have a second burner though, just in case!

There are a couple of tiny screws that hold the switch in place. Use a magnetic screwdriver otherwise you too may wind up with one done inside the front console where you can't get it back!

I'm having an issue with the large "dual" burner on my GE oven top (model JB960W0B2WW). I had noticed that the large outter portion of the burner wasn't turning on/off like it used to, only the inner portion of the burner heats up. I made the assumption that the burner was going out, ordered a new one and popped it in. I went to use it - and the new burner is exhibiting the same behavior. Doing some more observation/troubleshooting on this, I do note that, when the burner is cold, if I turn on the burner to high, the outter portion of the element works as expected, but once I take it off high, the outter burner stops and it won't come back on, regardless of what I set the knob to - only the inner portion of the burner will heat.

Does anyone have any clues at what might need to be replaced and how to get to it?
