The front 2 burners were on and had been on for about 30 mins. when the breaker initially blew. Turned all burners off and flipped the breaker back on, and the breakers quickly blew again. Which led me to believe the problem was in the lights or sensors that indicate that the cooktop was hot. Several hours later, after the cooktop had cooled. The breaker was flipped on again and they did not trip. None of the internal wires or connections have visable damage or burn marks. How do I determine if the problem is one of the indicator lights or a heat sensor without replacing them all? Or am I way off on my suspected problem?
Yessir, the switches appear to be in working order. My spouse said there was an audible pop and a visual flash from the control area, when the breaker tripped. So, with 220v I was expecting to see burn marks or some indication of a damaged part or wire. There was none. I will disconnect the connection to the indicators and see if I can re-create the problem. If it trips the breaker, then I will at least know the problem is pre-indicators. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX will report back with the result in case I have to backtrack from there.
