I have an Amana smooth top stove model # XXXXX The right

I have an Amana smooth...
I have an Amana smooth top stove model # XXXXX The right rear element beneath the glass, "flamed up and went out" when I accidentally splashed hot liquid onto the hot burner area. Will not heat up since then. Do I need to replace the element and if so what parts do I need, from where, how much, and how do I access this area to make repairs??   I have no manual as we bought floor model w/o manual. Thanks!

Hey Bryan, We don't have the repalcement part yet because we don't have a manual or info regarding what part we really needed. SOOO I guess we should get that before we take the stove apart. Do you know what part or parts we need and who might carry those at a decent price? Recon we could get it at home depo or Lowes home store or do we have to order it and wait weeks to recieve it? I am hoping we can get it today and repair it today, but I would have to go buy it somewhere.
dont buy it through Lowes or home depot I'll find it for you cheaper than that> i just wanted to know if the top will lft up. can you just see if it lifts and we can take it from there? thanks Bryan

is this a maytag part # XXXXX called a "Limiter" what we need? We don't need a burner?   
yes its the limiter. if the burner is good you may be able to just change the limiter. you should check the burner and make sure its okay though.Bryan

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Do we check the burner with a continuity guage? We need to get one.   They say I need to call on Mon. regarding special attention to order a limiter. No prices mentioned there. Any ideas off the top of your head what a limiter will cost? Burners are around $38.00.
the best thing to do is buy the whole burner for $38.00 because it comes withe the limiter alredy installed in the burner that way your on the safe side. $38.00 is cheap for these i've seen some that are over $120.00 so replacing the burner is my best advice, hope this helps , thanks Bryan

So to recap bryan, you say that the 7" Element ribbon, part # XXXXX by Whirlpool is what I need to order, and that this part has a limiter already attatched?
yes thats it. the one on the diagrams I sent you . if your infinate switch is okay this should take care of it. the limiter is in the new element. hope this helps, thanks Bryan
