Change out the switch for the burner that is the issue. DO you need a part number?

Does the touchpad input do anything when you try to control that burner?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
it performs as normal. I swapped the wires for the center burner and outer burner. The center burner then worked fine. It appears the circuit board in the rear of the stove may be the fault. Possible the relay K8 is bad or the diode. I will try a new circuit board. I am sorry but you really haven't helped me. Are you familiar with this General Electric stove?
