My Whirlpool Model #GTD3044-RB02 glass cooktop has a burner that will not adjust and only runs on high. Thoughts??

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

About 5 years old. Model is #GTD3044-RB02 glass cooktop Serial # XU4600583

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Only if its practicle, not too complicated

If the burner only runs on high and it won't regulate the temperature, the burner itself isn't the problem. The switch which your knob attaches to under the glass top needs to be replaced for that burner. There are 2 different switches depending on if the burner is a single element or a dual ring burner. Below is a link to both switches depending on which burner switch you need. The cooktop will need to be completely uninstalled so you can remove the glass top to replace the switch if you wanted to replace the part yourself.

Great. In your opinion is this something that a homeowner like me can do?
Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 8 months ago

If you're handy yes. For instance if you work on your own cars and such for small things, this should be something you can handle.
