At switch I have : line 1-- 120v to ground line 2--120v to ground Hi to H2 no voltage With switch on I have no voltage between line 1 and line 2. Why would shorting out a burner switch burn out the switch. Thanks
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
What about L1 and L2 on the switch not to ground you need 220 volts at both places.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The wire going to L1 on switch has 120v The wire going toL2 on the switch has 120v. reading between L1 and L2 when wires are connected to switch and switch is turned on shows no voltage.
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
What about H1 and H 2 with the switch turned on what do you get it should be 220 volts.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
with the switch turned on I do not get any voltage between H1 and H2
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
And you should if your getting 220 volts between L1 and L2 .so if your getting 220 volts at the Ls replace the switches.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
with the switch on I am not getting any voltage between L1 and L2 The wire going to L1 has 120v The wire going to L2 has 120v
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

Heres the wiring diagram for the model check between L1 and L2 at the switches if your not you blew a breaker try resetting the breaker .

Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
I will have to work on this one I'm calling it a night I will get back to you.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I have taken off one burner switch. How can I check to see if it is ok. It does not look burnt.
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.
With the switch set to the om position you can check between the L1 and H 1 and L and H 2 OHM that out if the switch is ok you should get a reading.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The problem was not in the burner switch. the N.O. contact was burnt out.
Expert:  John replied 4 years ago.

I see thats why no 220 to the switches great job in finding the problem.

Thanks and God Bless.
